* This list isn't extensive by any means, so please add more items/tips as they come to mind. Guns & ammo are a given the "list" failed to mention. I guess in order not to cause panic... Today, millions of Americans say that they believe that the United States is on the verge of a major economic collapse and will soon be entering another Great Depression. But only a small percentage of those same people are prepared for that to happen. The sad truth is that the vast majority of Americans would last little more than a month on what they have stored up in their homes. Unless you already live in a cave or you are a complete and total mindless follower of the establishment media, you should be able to see very clearly that our society is more vulnerable now than it ever has been. This year there have been an unprecedented number of large earthquakes around the world and volcanoes all over the globe are awakening. You can just take a look at what has happened in Haiti and in Iceland to see how devastating a natural disaster can be. Not only that, but we have a world that is full of lunatics in positions of power, and if one of them decides to set off a nuclear, chemical or biological weapon in a major city it could paralyze an entire region. War could erupt in the Middle East at literally any moment, and if it does the price of oil will double or triple (at least) and there is the possibility that much of the entire world could be drawn into the conflict.

Most of us are so used to running out to the supermarket or to Wal-Mart for whatever we need that we never even stop to consider what would happen if suddenly we were not able to do that. Already the U.S. economy is starting to stumble about like a drunken frat boy. All it would take for the entire U.S. to resemble New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina would be for a major war, a terror attack, a deadly pandemic or a massive natural disaster to strike at just the right time and push the teetering U.S. economy over the edge. So just how would you survive if you suddenly could not rely on the huge international corporate giants to feed, clothe and supply you and your family? Do you have a plan?
Scientists tell us that a massive high-altitude EMP (electromagnetic pulse) blast could send large portions of the United States back to the stone age in an instant. In addition, there is the constant threat that the outbreak of a major viral pandemic (such as what happened with the 1918 Spanish Flu) could kill tens of millions of people around the globe and paralyze the economies of the world.
But even without all of that, the truth is that the U.S. economy is going to collapse. So just think of what will happen if one (or more) of those things does happen on top of all the economic problems that we are having.
What an inane article.
The prudent see danger and take refuge,
but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
If you aren’t prepared now it’s probably too late for most people to start.
As you can see, lots of Americans think it can never happen to them, they’ll be standing in the bread lines.
My grandparents grew up during the depression and they not only survived but thrived because they were independent first.
If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and
especially for his immediate family, he has
denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Those who wish may want to review my Preparedness manual at:
lol our government is doing a good job prevent us from having anything to survive on.
Your failure to insert proper paragraph breaks enrages me.
We will all be in the same sinking boat and we will rally and some will survive.
Poor English composition skills are a sign of disorderly thought process.
They are also ZOTbait.
The first item should have discussed caliber, at least.
Well, actually there were “breaks”, but then I exceeded the # of words, went back deleted some things, & when I hit “post” it all ran together.
Let me suggest clicking link to read orig.
“My grandparents grew up during the depression and they not only survived but thrived because they were independent first.”
My parents did the same, they saved enough to start a business without borrowing and build a home in a high end area of los Angeles.
The answer isn’t to surivre but prosper!
