16 Signs That Most Americans Are NOT PREPARED For The Coming Economic Collapse

16 Signs That Most Americans Are NOT PREPARED For The Coming Economic Collapse
http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/16-signs-that-most-americans-are-not-prepared-for-the-coming-economic-collapse


Reading this article was really troubling for me.  While I don't worry too much about people not having all that cash and gold on hand (you can't eat a dollar) some of these statistics really concern me.


* 44 percent don’t have first-aid kits

* 48 percent lack emergency supplies

* 53 percent do not have a minimum three-day supply of nonperishable food and water at home

Really???


And one that I was completely shocked by....

* It has been estimated that there are approximately 3 million "preppers" in the United States.

3 Million???  Out of 313.9 million?  That is less than 1%.

Even if this statistic meant 3 Million Households, out of 115 Million?  That would be 2.6%.


So MORE than 97% of people are NOT preparing for any emergency or disaster to come their way.  This is a serious concern for those who believe that a disaster or emergency could and probably will occur.

The prepper stocks their pantry, learns skills, and encourages others to do so.  The prepper plants their garden, saves their seeds, raises their meat and learns to butcher it humanely and safely.  Every prepper I know also tries to stock extra for their loved ones who are not so moved.

But the others.....
Shall I say, those who ignore the passage of history and the tales it tells, of hardships, of disasters, toil and hard times...


They will loot, they will pillage, they will kill for a loaf of bread.

And while they may find a prepper and steal every ounce of food and supplies that he has.....

They will still eventually die, having sold their soul for their belly.
