This is a rather lengthy video but worth watching. If you don't understand the dangers we face as a country you need to begin paying attention. We are on the verge of a collapse of our economic system, regardless of all of the feel good reporting you see on the news every night. I'm not so sure that at this point even if the government decided to do the right thing it would make any difference. I believe we have passed the point of no return.

One point that is made in this video is extremely important because most of us have it within our power to do something about it. Grow a garden. Food is beginning to hyper inflate. This has been very obvious to me as I have watched our weekly food purchases begin to skyrocket in price. Look for sales, buy in quantity and stash it away. This isn't about hoarding, it's about buying at a low price to save money down the road. You might as well get it while it's cheap. You'll need to buy it anyway.

Learn to can. If you get a garden going you need to be able to preserve what you grow. Buy the supplies off season when they're cheaper and learn how to do it. Simple as can be and nothing beats the taste of summer in the middle of winter.

Partner up with your neighbors. Gardening and preserving are a whole bunch easier when you do it as a team. Besides, as the economy starts to go in the tank survival will be all about community. We will need to relearn to work together for the common good.

I guess what I'm trying to say here is that we need to start thinking about what is coming. Make plans and put systems into place. Nothing crazy. Do things like starting a garden that will benefit you regardless of what happens in the future. You know food is getting more expensive so it will benefit you to buy or produce it cheaply and use it later regardless of what happens. You still save money.

Just start to think, "What if?". It doesn't cost anything to plan and it may save you, your family and your friends down the road.
