the US gov.

Recommended Posts

ok guy and gals, i have a good friend who i was just talking to about prepping and our gov.

my friend was asking me moreorless why the gov doesnt support preppers and our ways.

i gave a few answers but my buddy doesnt fully believe what im saying as they are new

to prepping and still learning the ropes so to speak. seeing has how prepping is a positive

thing and means we depend on our gov less, why wouldnt our gov support such things?

i guess why wouldnt our gov want us to be independent of them folks? help me find some better

answers for a better understanding.

Ok I will try..

Prepping means to LOOK Ahead at your basic needs in a Bad situation..

You take a look at what you "Need" not what you WANT and budget for it..

Goverment say's "Oh dont do that" just stay in debt purchase shit from china that you dont need and "Dont Worry"about it!!

 

Preping means "YOU Plan for your self and your family"..not the HOLE Village..

Goverment say's "Wait you cant keep food just for yourself" just because the other's are lazy and dont plan .does not mean that's it's FAIR for them to do without!!

 

Personal Responsability/preper's have it..

 

Goverment.."YOU NEED ME TO OK THAT FIRST"...see if its Fair!!

 

Ok so its a bunch of things..

Preppers are, by-and-large, are conservative minded folks. Conservative minded-folks, by-and-large, prefer conservative governments. Conservative governments tend to have less power over the individual. Need I say more? :o

Look at it this way...

 

Preppers are more into personal responsibility. Its my job to take care of my family. Its my job to feed, cloth and provide shelter <yes, the spousal unit does her part as well>. But its my job...not the governments.

 

It is not the governments job to feed you, cloth you, or shelter you. If you think otherwise then you are probably in the 47% that Romney was referring to.

 

The government says that you should have three days worth of food and water on hand in your home. As Katrina and Sandy have shown three days worth is woefully inadequate.

 

However <and here's where the fun starts>, if you have more than what the government thinks you should in a Sandy or Katrina type situation, then suddenly your a food hoarder because you planned ahead. You <according to the government> should give the surplus you have <although you don't know its a surplus until after the event is over> to the people who didn't plan ahead, who depend on the government to feed, cloth and shelter them. If you have firearms the people in power will try to take them from you <like they did in Louisiana during Katrina>, they don't care if you can protect your family or not...after all if you need help...call them...they'll show up 5 to 30 minutes later. Unless its something like Katrina or Sandy, then its good luck...we'll get back to you.

 

To me it goes back to Aesop's fables...anyone remember the story of the ant and the grasshopper?

The gov't needs some real leaders to run for office and not a bunch of spineless crooks.

 

Rick, IMO, the gov't dislikes preppers because we are not willing to allow them to take our money and other resources and allot us our "share". Think bread lines in the soviet union, where "everyone is equal" under marxism/socialism/"progressivism" and the gov't keeps all "extra" for themselves. Preppers will not willingly become slaves and I will die on my feet before I bow to one of them worthless POSes (as probably most feel). gov't no longer feels they are out to serve their constituents but look at how the people can serve and better their (gov't's) lives. The federal gov't seems to have gotten their wires crossed on who is supposed to support and serve who.

It a difference in ideology that your firend needs to realize, the US GOvt is not the Knight in Shinging Armor riding a WHite Stallion. Its more like Hitler showcasing the first Panzer II. Its all about CONTROL. If people are prepped and self-sufficient, this also means they are 'independent' and dont NEED to govt to provide them with "Safety and Security". Independent people cannot truely be controlled in any way. Being defiant is in the BLOOD of any (red blooded) AMerican. An independent person , by definition is strong minded; allowing them to be independent in the first place. Being strong minded means indepenet people are independent thinkers and dont believe everything they see on TV. Independent thinkers ASK QUESTIONS!!

THe govt doesnt want Independent thinkers or people asking questions. THEY want the population completely under thier control, to be able to abuse rape and pillage its citizens as it sees fit, a by any means it sees fit. Preppers cannot be controled, therefore we are a threat.

damn navy, you hit it with the 1-2 punch right there. good job. im gonna let my buddy read this thread asap guys.

im sure this will be a big help. now if someone can help me describe what sheeple are please.

the reason i have you kind folks involved is i want my good friend to be able to read different opinions on the same topic.

it helps get a feel for the over all public opinion ya know. i just want buddy to realize bad events and lean times isnt the only

reason we prep. so please, buddy isnt knocking any of this but asking questions, and very curious as to what and why.

its a good thing.

IMO, sheople (sheeple) are called that because like sheep, all you have to do is train 1 and they will all follow blindly. Sheep must be in a flock to survive, usually 5 or more are needed for them to feel safe enough to live. Sheople to me just blindly follow whatever trained monkey they put make up on and put in front of a camera.

Sheeple are not independent thinkers. Sheeple are the exact opposite of my previous post. Weak minded and easily controlled, and still think of the US Govt as the KNight in Shining Armor. ANd probably have less than 1 week of food in the fridg.

I pretty much agree with what the others have said regarding sheeple...

 

The government is their shepherd...he takes care of them guides them to where he wants them to go.

Brings them to food <FEMA camps>

Keeps them all together <easier to control>

If one strays he brings it back to the flock <kill independent thought...can't have that around here>

Keeps them together with his sheep dogs <the press and various other agencies>

Keeps them away from the creatures that roam the woods outside their safe little flock <independent thinkers, individualists, etc.>

 

I could go on....but no real point.
