Unless you have been in a coma or hiding in your underground bunker to stay safe from the civil war then you know that Donald Trump has won the 2016 elections. Many conservative preppers have been celebrating this win or defeat over Hillary. However, many preppers don’t know what Donald Trump as president means or how it affects our preparedness strategy.
As I mentioned many preppers have been celebrating this outcome. In fact, I have seen many preppers foolishly proclaiming that the “NWO”, “the establishment,” and “globalists” (or whatever you want to call them) have lost. They believe that this is the end for them.
Yes, this is the first time since 1928 that conservatives have control of the White House, Senate, Congress and possibly the Supreme Court for at least the next 2 years. However, I believe that there are things that we still need to prep for because preparedness never ends. So it’s not time to relax with our prepping.
Here are some things that preppers need to be aware of with Donald Trump as president:
You still need a healthy distrust of government
It is a scary thing when people begin wholly trusting the government or an elected official. Politicians and government have always been corrupt and that doesn’t end with Trump as president. Thomas Jefferson once said “History, in general, only informs us what bad government is.”
So Trump may have won the hearts of many but I encourage you to be cognizant of what comes along with power. Power breeds corruption. No one is exempt to that temptation. So don’t be like sheep who blindly follows.
“Globalists” or the “NWO” will continue to fight
I’m seeing many preppers relaxed now that Trump has won the election. Many feel relieved because they believe since Obama “the tyrant” is leaving the office we no longer have to worry about anything. Many people were worried about Obama declaring martial law and taking guns among other things.
However, it is not time to relax and not focus on being prepared. If you believe that the opposition is just going to give up just because Trump won the elections then you are totally baptized stupid. They have much power and resources around this world. Their power is not limited to their hold in the United States government. As a matter of fact, George Soros has already funded and mobilized many anti-Trump protestors and rioters. There is still a plan and a fight to destroy the United States from within.
The opposition is going to continue to press their progressive, socialist and communist agenda. They are going to fight tooth and nail until the next elections for the House and Senate which are only 2 years away. As a matter of fact Obama made a speech after the elections encouraging others to continue to fight and make “progress.”
Obama himself is not gracefully bowing out. As a matter of fact he is looking to hold a high office in the United Nations. From there he will continue to prostitute the freedoms of the United States to the elite.
We’ve been given some time
Like I said, we only have 2 years until the next elections. The liberals are going to do everything in their power to paint conservatives in a bad light. This in hopes of regaining power in Congress.
So for now we don’t have to worry about the price of firearms sky rocketing because of Hillary coming for our guns. For now we can take that money to not only purchase the necessities but also invest in some training. Buying a bunch of guns is useless if you don’t how to use them properly in a self-defense situation.
Get back in the Fight!
The powerful thing that Trump has done is that he had mobilized millions to take action. Many people were not only willing to stand in lines for hours to attend his rallies but also vote for him. This mobilized and activated those that were previously disengaged with politics.
Now that he has won it doesn’t mean it is time to stop. As preppers we need to stand for conservative principals and preserve our values. We should all be involved with political action groups that protect our God-given freedoms like the NRA and free-speech movements. You need to continue to put pressure on locally elected officials as well.
PREPPING NEVER ENDS!!!
Preparedness is a lifestyle and not a destination. We will never get to a point where we can say that we are done prepping or don’t need to worry anymore. There will always be the potential man-made and natural disasters. There is still the threat of wars and domestic attacks that we need to be prepared for along with everyday situations like home invasions or robberies. So continue to prep the smart way now so that we can thrive later because shit is going to hit fan one way or another!
