    How to Prepare for the Economic Collapse

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, along the lines of "100 things", here's more food for thought. I got this back in April.

    Survivalism: How to Prepare for the Economic Collapse

    by John Paul Mitchell


    If this forecast holds true, and a major portion of our states file bankruptcy, there will be widespread panic, our state funded services and programs will be closed down immediately, and confusion amongst political leadership and the citizenry.

    Not long after the states file bankruptcy, could we see martial law declared by the President of the United States, as a means to bring order and peace. Those who are not willing to comply with the mandates of the martial law will be hauled off to FEMA camps and military bases throughout the United States.

    How can you prepare for this economic collapse now?

    Food

    • Begin stocking up your cabinets, pantries, and closets with non-perishable food items.
    • Purchase a portable camping stove in case your home's electricity is shut off.
    • Start consuming a healthier diet so your body isn't dependent on the processed and junk foods we've grown accustom to.
    • If you have the space in your yard, plant and grow a garden.
    • Stock up on vitamins and necessary supplements to ensure you stay healthy in the next Great Depression.

    Household

    • Discuss emergency plans with your family, roommates, friends, and/or loved ones.
    • Store a stockpile of hygiene items including deodorant, toothpaste, towels, washcloths, and toilet paper.
    • Make sure you have a hefty reserve of bottled water on hand, stored in a safe place.
    • Keep extra pillows, sheets, and blankets in your closets.
    • Have at least one shotgun, rifle, or handgun, if not more.
    • Ensure you have enough ammunition to defend yourself, your household, and your loved ones in emergency situations. Ammo can be used for bartering, too.

    Community

    • Get to know your neighbors.
    • Know who you can and cannot trust in your local community.
    • Gather together with like-minded individuals in your community, choose designated methods of contact, and choose a few leaders.
    • Pick a safe house, where your community coalition will go in emergency situations.
    • Pick two alternative safe houses, in case the primary safe house becomes compromised.
    • In times of peace, continue to make your community aware of political, social, and economic dangers.

    Money

    • Save paper and coin money in a safe place in your house.
    • Invest in a small or medium size safe to store your money and other valuables.
    • Slowly begin withdrawing from your savings and investment accounts on a regular basis. Store this money in a safe location.
    • If you can purchase gold, buy it. Gold retains the same value no matter how low or high the currency markets go. Silver coins are also a good investment, as they are more easily used as money.
    • Stop paying taxes to save money and force government leaders to listen to the citizenry, the people who put them in office.

    It's better to prepare for the worse, and hope for the best.

    Take Action

    Remember the government belongs to the people and it's our duty to ensure our rights and freedom.

    Any small electrical product I have in my BOB is wind up (radio,lanterns,flashlights). That way I don't rely on batteries or sunshine. Wind up and go. Lights/lanterns are all LED, so they require very little wind up time to supply sufficient light. I have a army stove picked up from a co-op in a box ready to go (will burn anything in it). Bow/crossbow is a must. Bullets run out, or to heavy to pack all around. You can have a hundred guns and ammo, but, you aren't packing that stuff around without a trailer. Good bow with reusable arrows (as long as you shoot straight and can find them afterwards). Nobody's gonna match the firepower the authorities have, so, buy for survival only. Defense will be against desperate people only (unfortunate but, unavoidable), so a good crossbow "should" discourage them.
    So, whens the revolution starting............?

    Great list. Thanks MnEagle!

    I don't have all of the items of course but hopefully we will be able to stay in our home. We have our own propane tank for heat and we also have a gas stove. We have well water too so the only thing I did was buy a Berkey filter in case we lose power and can't get water. In which case, we have a lake nearby. There is still so much I need to do though. My biggest concern is being able to grow food when our supplies run out. I need to get a bunch of seeds and figure out the best way to store them.

    I bought several lanterns that require batteries ( but I also bought a lot of batteries). I also bought a bunch of candles but should probably get more.

    Also canned butter. I think that may come in handy.

    If you have poor soil in the yard like I do,
    now is the time to get a few yards delivered and amended.
    Those non-hybrid seeds are not going to do much good if you can't grow 'em.

    Assuming there's still electricity:

    Light bulbs
    Furnace/AC filters

    I just realized there's a gapping hole:
