Everyday when I listen to the news it reminds me of the cold war. There are wars and rumors of wars. Today I was reading about people who are predicting World War Three by the end of the summer. I was born in the early forties and I can remember hearing predictions of wars, from as soon as I was old enough to listen to the news, right up until the cold war ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Now here we are again, more predictions, now I am not saying it can’t happen. Eventually it probably will. I am just saying don’t get excited about all the predictions and rumors. Just get your preps in and keep getting prepared. Time lets you improve your position and increase the chances of you an your family surviving.
I believe a good number of these rumors are started on purpose by people in power to keep us scared so that we will let them get away with stealing our constitutional rights. Now I am not saying to hide your head in the sand. But pay attention to what the politicians are doing. Don’t let them scare you into voting your rights away. Hold their feet to the fire and make them follow the constitution.
Benjamin Franklin said, “Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.” I believe in a strong military capable of defending this country and having intelligence agencies that are capable of monitoring our foreign enemies. But I believe that all government agencies should have to comply with the fourth amendment and get search warrants prior to invading our privacy.
These rumors and scares have worked well for the elements that want to take our rights away. Just look at how much has changed in the last 50 years. We no longer have the freedom we had then and every year it gets worse.
I guess the bottom line I am trying to get across is to vote right, prepare and plan, but at the same time don’t forget to live your life. Take time to enjoy your life
