As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests. – Gore Vidal
If you live in the United States then you are really aware of the tensions that come along with the election season. However, this election season seems to be the tensest that I have experienced. For good reason, there is a lot on the line.
During this last presidential term we have seen the middle class shrink. There are over 96 million people without jobs. There has also been a war waged on the first and second amendment which have awakened many Americans to the corruption that is going on in our government.
Over the last few months we have seen violent protests take part at rallies for Donald Trump. Now this blog post isn’t a political post. I’m not taking sides or blaming anyone. Some say that Soros and Sanders are behind the riots. I just want to state things that I have noticed and warn preppers of what could be coming to our country. There are things that we need to be doing to prepare during the election season.
Regardless of who is to blame for the violence that has happened at Donald Trump rallies he has also threatened that there will be violence if he is not nominated in Cleveland (http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/trump-warns-supporters-may-riot-fears-violence-escalate-n540516). His close ally, Roger Stone (who also was a part of the Jimmy Carter administration) has been calling for a “day of rage” if Trump is not nominated (http://www.redstate.com/streiff/2016/04/02/donald-trump-ally-plans-protests-violence-trump-win-nomination/). Now this could only be localized but it should be concerning to everyone especially the prepper. We have seen violent protests like this in other countries recently but Americans brush it off not believing that it could ever happen in the United States.
Now, if Trump is nominated it doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t see violence. I believe that we could see violent protests regardless of if he is nominated/elected or not. For example, if Trump wins the elections no doubt there will be further violent demonstrations by the Black Lives Matter group and Bernie Supporters. If this happens I believe that is will not be localized. This will probably happen on a national scale which could in return spark a civil war.
As a prepper we need to be aware of the potential. Many don’t believe that it is that bad. In my opinion this is all engineered. It is a part of the agenda to further divide this country. Over the past few years we have seen the mainstream media and politicians stir the racial tensions within this country. It is all a part of a plan to divide this country so that it will implode on itself.
As a prepper we should be concerned about societal collapse. It is something that we have seen throughout history. The United States is not exempt to the threat.
Now you could be a prepper that also identifies as a patriot. There is nothing wrong with loving your country and standing up for it. However, we have to realize that this is a part of a bigger plan that has been happening all around the world.
This is why we prepare. Being a prepper doesn’t only mean that you purchase massive amounts of guns and canned food. We need to always be aware of what is going on around us. You need to have a plan for what you would do if we see a civil war in the United States.
Would you plan to bug in if riots break in out in your neighborhood? Would you stand and fight or would you bug out? Leave a comment below of what you think is going on in this country and what you would do if a civil war breaks out.
