I see a lot of truth stated here, but some Bull S**t too. First off, there will be so many die right off the bat. Then you have those that will be killing and looting the cities and towns. After a short time of those type of activities; diseases will start up. So in a very short time, our population will dwindle considerably. People are not given to change that well, so most will stay where they are, resisting that urge to run. We are creatures of habit and most times that will lead to ones death in a SHTF event.
Those that are not stay-put minded or more of the nomadic type are the ones I see as the true survivors. Look around you, who is it that you see daily that are true survivors. They are there and we see them everyday. They don’t hide, they don’t run away. they survive each and every day. Talk with vets that have returned from war torn countries, ask about the people they saw living day after day. Ask them about the type of life style that had in those towns, villages and cities. There is more of your true survivors. There are some of those here in America. Fine them and talk with them. You will be surprised at what you will learn. Wither its the sands of Afghanistan or the jungles of Viet-Nam, the survival of those who made it are all the same, not much different. The single most outstanding thing I found in all of it was this: their mindset. If you don’t have the right mindset, you will most likely die. And some people wonder why some of our boys come home with there heads not on straight, its not that, they see and it scares the hell out of them. Because we are not ready, and its coming.
The thing with he some not having the money to buy some land, is so right, when the economy took a dump, and many lost their jobs and now have to choice between going to the doctor or cutting back on their meals. Unless you’ve been there you don’t know crap, but continue to spit forth your stupidity, because you don’t know what you’re talking about. All those who think because they are this or that way, know and think that everyone has a means, I call BS on that. But they keep opening their mouths and telling everyone just how ignorant they truly are. I feel for them, because they will be some of the first that will do something stupid and die.
