But instead, they're going to deny reality, vote in the upcoming election, and pretend that whoever occupies the Oval Office has both the intention and the power to make any real difference. That belief is delusional, as is the belief that the national debt somehow doesn't really matter.
The delusions are, of course, leading us all directly into a head-on collision with history, where the global debt collapse unfolds at a quickening pace and becomes "real" for hundreds of millions of people in North America who have so far escaped the reality of the financial collapse happening across Europe. Before that day comes, here are 26 things you might want to get done.
26 things to get done before the global debt collapseSee a holistic dentist and get the mercury removed from your mouth.
Buy some hardcopy books so you have something to read when the power grid fails.
Move your money out of the big globalist banks.
Bury your gold and silver. Use an appropriate container to protect from moisture and don't forget to tell someone else where you've buried things, just in case you don't make it.
Get the heck out of the city and learn some country living skills.
Pay off as many assets as you can so you have a clear title to anything you don't want the banks to seize.
Get right with God or whatever spiritual focal point you practice.
Wrap up needed apologies or forgiveness. Don't allow regrets to burden you in a time of crisis.
Make color copies of all your important documents, then store them in a safe place. (BTW, a bank's safe deposit box is NOT a safe place. Those will all be looted.)
Get off prescription meds. Any dependence on prescription drugs is a death wish in a collapse scenario.
Stock up on diatomaceous earth (DE) to protect your garden vegetables. The stuff stores forever.
Stock up on extra glasses or contact lenses if you might need them.
Get fit, you'll need to be more fit if you hope to survive.
Take out some cash and start saving nickels. Why? Because nickels are actually still worth a nickel in terms of what they're physically made of.
Learn to use shortwave radio, or better yet get a radio operator's license.
Learn and practice basic gardening skills.
Learn how to raise chickens, goats or other small animals.
Buy a premium-quality set of basic gardening tools, even if you don't yet garden.
Get training on how to use your firearms. When you really need them, there won't be time to practice. If you want to practice on your own, buy the new book by Joe Nobody, entitled, "The Home Schooled Shootist" and start using it.
If you own rifles, sight them all in and use threadlock on anything that might work itself loose in a firefight. You don't want your gear falling apart when you need it most.
Plant some figs, aloe vera or other low-maintenance food-producing plants. Do it now to give these plants as much time as possible to start producing food.
Stock up on salt, colloidal silver and other hard-to-get items that you'll routinely need.
Spend more time outdoors to get used to sunlight exposure.
Store away an emergency seed kit.
Get a reliable guard dog who can help provide protection for your family and property.
Buy extra pairs of socks. You can never have too many pairs of quality socks. And you absolutely do not want to have to make them yourself later on.
Obviously, this list can go on forever, but these 26 things should be at the top of your "preparedness to-do list." Bang out as many as you can while staying healthy, informed, well stocked and as far away from high density population areas as possible. The cities will suffer the most in almost any conceivable debt collapse scenario, so take advantage of the relative tranquility that exists right now to move out of the city and get squared away out in the country.
Trust me, you'll be glad you did very, very soon. In terms of timelines, many smart people think we are on the verge of a sudden global debt collapse. Others think we're heading into a "slow collapse" that could accelerate over the next 2-3 years. Some people believe a lot is riding on the upcoming election, and what I'm hearing is that if Romney gets elected, many Obama supporters are going to riot in the streets. Whereas if Obama gets re-elected, U.S. business owners may very well revolt against the failed economic policies Obama has so far pursued. Either way, it's not a pretty picture. Either way, you need to get prepared now for the inevitable.
