    Notice any awakening?

    We've been talking about sheeple at GIM/GSUS for years now. I gotta tell you, I see noticeable evidence that people are waking up. Five years ago, it seemed like 1 in 50 or 100 had a clue. Now it seems like 1 in 5 or 10, at least around these parts. The awareness level is greatly heightening. The politicians still have a stronghold, and there are likely some crisis moments ahead, but I think people are becoming quicker to recognize things for what they are, though they may not yet understand how to stop it, or prepare for it.

    I've had many discussions with people who are dropping their partisan allegiance, and they know something is afoul. A close friend (liberal/democrat tendencies) recently mentioned he's lost trust in both sides and now recognizes that the government is squandering his tax money rather than using it to help society as he used to expect. He's starting to think that government perpetuates war. He mentioned he's concerned about his retirement money, and wonders if perhaps there is something to this idea of actually buying "gold rocks". He never would have said any of this five years ago.

    Is anybody else noticing the tide turning?

    Most will pay the price by not having the money to get ready.......but all that you really need is a gun and a bullet to take what someone else has........and that's what you call a real survivalist........you can I?, we are only preppers.

    I think the first baby step, even before you've bought your first extra roll of toilet paper or can of soup, is awareness.

    People who are less prepared, but are aware, can at least be an asset to those who are prepared, rather than a hindrance. It will be easier to help your loved ones if they are aware and cooperative, rather than resistant and disruptive.

    One needs to look no further for evidence of people getting a clue by comparing Ron Pauls vote totals from 08 to now.

    PC: your vid reminded me of this one!

    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint - Isaiah 40:31

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. ~
    Matthew 7:7

    Yes, I have noticed it. Several friends of friends that, when I met them say 2-3 years ago, were Obama supporters/voters have begun asking me about Ron Paul. A couple others that were on the fence about Paul several years ago now fully support him.

    I'm very thankful I listened to hoarder when I've, at times, begun to lose hope. His posts suggesting, "keep planting seeds", is wise advice indeed.

    I have been seeing some fruit coming from those seeds planted firmly and steadily over the past several years.

    My dad is possibly my biggest convert. From an adamant "911 is not an inside job!" Fox news style conservative, he now wants to know "what did Israel do regarding 911", claims "there is no way the official story explains WTC7!" and pushes other family members to buy gold.

    Keep planting seeds folks. It's worth it, even if you can't see the sprouts yet.

    That's what they are most afraid of....more so than a revolution. I just keep planting seeds, usually without mentioning the dreaded "J" word. The masses need a foundation of the obvious, which is our duty to point out, before they can connect the dots.
    They eventually come to you and acknowledge that the obvious is what it is and will ask you your opinion on other matters.

    When the level reaches 10%, they will have to kill us or go on the defensive and back up from their current position.

    ^ Exactly this. You can attempt to shove our conclusions (the result of years of careful observation and study) down their throat, but without the proper context they will just puke it back up again.

    I'm curious...if 10% is the goal, where do you think we're at now? Is 10% the tipping point?
