I came here because it was about prepping and to learn more about it, but this is a political site more then it is prepping. And yes I got caught up in the politics too because we have problems and likely will have more.
I know what you mean. It seems like there is a polarizing split in just about anything these days. To top it off “conservatives” are not really conservative any more. A true conservative would be pro choice both for financial reasons (a abortion is way cheaper than welfare) and political reasons (it is a decision that has nothing to do with government) but that is not the case when you ask a conservative. Freedom of religion is another hot button issue that a true conservative would champion, but it seems that christianity has got its hooks into conservatives and twisted it to mean freedom of christianity. As much as I don’t like fags, lgbt rights should technically be a conservative value because the government has no business in someones bedroom. There is a laundry list of true conservative values that are largely neglected in the modern conservative movement. I find it truly amusing that even when talking about preparedness there is a polarizing split, since when was basic survival based solely on political persuasion.
Granted I think many of the liberal ideals of fairness and equality and charity are garbage, because they defy the laws of nature that demand that only the strong & smart should survive and breed. But to discount a whole portion of the population based on their political persuasion seems shortsighted at best. I trade with a couple of ultra hippies that I would classify as extremely liberal, and they are as prepared as I am if not more. I think most of their preparedness is due to wanting to live a “carbon free” (whatever the hell that means) lifestyle, but they are prepared none the less. From bullets & arrows to solar & wind to dogs & horses their homestead will survive many years if not decades after a collapse, due to proper planning and efficient execution of those plans. The fact that they are bleeding heart liberals has no bearing on their long term survivability.
