Libs Catch the Prepping Bug

Postby anita » Tue Jan 17, 2017 1:15 pm

This is the second story I've seen about this.

Liberals are catching the prepping bug.

We’re tired of being perceived as wusses who won’t survive when poo poo hits the fan,” said Stacy, a Texas Democrat who recently caught the prepper bug. She spoke with Vocativ on the condition we not publish her last name. “I, for one, don’t like to be thought of as some precious snowflake.”


Pretty ironic.

Glad to see it here too. More exposure, more are informed.

just shows how poor a prepper these liberals really are - takes more than "things" - takes knowledge along with savvy, common sense and practicality ....

bad enough to be a good prepper and have the unprepared liberal sheeple to contend with - but purposely move into a liberal enclave of nothing but sheeple ... that takes a Hellery supporter to explain that logic ....

Be interesting to see if a few of them, after spending a few years homesteading, woke up one morning and discovered they identified more with conservatives than they do liberals.

I love this. More people being prepared is a bonus.

More people who choose to educate themselves is a bonus.

More people who decide to responsibly exercise their 2A Rights is a bonus.

But will the libs be able to take their preps with them when they are placed into re-education camps?

Good for them. We all have our reasons for prepping and they've found theirs. I don't know how many will stick with it though, since prepping is a long term commitment. Most likely most will buy a gun and a bucket of freeze-dried survival food and that will be that.

There probably getting a little worried that the new PRESIDENT might cut them off, from all the free stuff and they'll have to fend for themselves some day.
This should be interesting.

Hope some do, everyone should be prepared for financial issues, health issues, weather events, or just unexpected problems that go with life.

It's not as easy as it sounds, takes commitment, unless like me, I grew up prepping before it was called prepping, for us it was a matter of survival and it just continues. My husband's family did not live like we did though they were very frugal. We were much more self reliant from necessity. So both of us brought parts of prepping to our marriage, DIY, saving money, planning for the future, having skills to keep us going instead of depending on others, living a life with deferred gratification, that's why we are so late doing a lot. But it did work, now if we can live to enjoy what we sowed. We can survive pretty much anything long as we can maintain our health, at our age that is one variable you can't control.

PS, common think about it. You are conservative if you believe what you just wrote. Democrats/liberals don't believe in being self reliant, saving money, planning for the future, not depending on others, unless the government does it for them.

Watch out preppers we are about to see a run on crayons and coloring books.
There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.
