Midterm Election Results: What Preppers Can Expect
by James Walton
America is anxiously awaiting the official results of this latest midterm election. There is one thing we know for sure. Elections in the USA have become much more caustic in recent years.
Most importantly, what will the results of this midterm election mean to us preppers? What kind of America are we inheriting and how should we prepare for it.
We have reached a dangerous point with surveillance. It has basically come to life. The surveilling of everything the American people do is an unstoppable force. Whether done through your phone, television, Alexa, Smart TV, Ring, Satellites, or other means we are not even aware of, it’s happening.
A document was leaked within the FBI showing domestic right-wing terrorist markers, signs, and symbols. These included the Gadsden Flag, the Punisher skull, the Betsy Ross Flag and other American History insignia from the revolution.
We have to surveil these people and make sure they do not do anything crazy like shoot fireworks off on the 4th of July. Surveillance on everyday Americans will only increase following the midterm election.
Greater “Safety” Through Government
From monitoring disinformation to imposing health and safety restrictions, the midterm election results will no doubt create a climate in this nation that requires more safety through government.
This will come at a cost, of course. It will mean the growth of government and thanks to greater surveillance your actions as a prepper will be watched with a sharp eye.
You need to buckle up and expect higher prices at the pump, high prices to heat your home, and nations abroad to suffer worst of all.
You should have several alternative ways to heat your home. People will be cold this year and some people will die from carbon monoxide poisoning trying to heat their human anyway that they can. Be prepared.
Fuel and food are inextricably tied so as the price and availability of food and fuel go up so will the cost of food.
The more food that you can produce at home the better! Food storage is always a good thing to have, too. I would recommend 6 months’ worth of food storage at a minimum. I used to recommend 3 months but times they are a changing!
Higher And Higher Prices
The midterm election results will have preppers racing further towards self-reliance.
We have all been watching the beginnings of this economic collapse.
Hopefully you have been taking action to shield yourself and your family.
The long in short of it is that you cannot adjust interest rates or employ enough demand destruction to deal with a 30 trillion dollar debt.
What that means is that your dollar is going to be worth less. Maybe not quite worthless but definitely worth less.
The American people put so much energy into the outcome of elections that this election will undoubtedly end in civil unrest of one kind or another.
Most people are content with idea that America is on a collision course with Civil War.
The media manipulation doesn’t help things either.
No matter how you slice it, if you are in a densely populated area then you need to be prepared to deal with civil unrest. This means keeping your finger on the pulse of what is happening in your area. Protests can quickly become violent.
It’s hard to ignore some things like government supported censorship and the targeting of certain groups. Still, we have to start thinking bigger. It is a time to establish alternative means of commerce, agriculture, security, and virtually anything that you hold dear.
