Here is the second guest post from reader “CC Cooper.” More good insights:
Preppers are all about mind-set. Making the right choices. We understand the concept of “Sacrifice NOW for greater rewards later”. We understand that living a prepared life is just as gratifying as a life that includes the normal excesses and fluff that most people have as their priorities.
We try not to SPEND money or time. We try to invest money and time. Invest in knowledge and stored information that will make things easier in the event that we need to use it. Invest in family and friends of good character, high moral standards and good ethics. We have FOOD INSURANCE in addition to the generally accepted Home, Life, health, Dental, and Auto Insurance. We believe in personal responsibility and place absolutely NO FAITH in the US Government to solve problems. We are Constitutionalists. We understand history and the IMPORTANCE of understanding history. Also, that those who fail to learn from History are doomed to repeat it.
Your whole life should be consumed with Freedom, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Use some common sense and understand the true meaning of that. Understand the meaning of personal responsibility. Maybe, just maybe, you will have a revelation. I sure hope so…
