As I write this, it looks like Barack Hussein Obama is going to be the next President of the United States. God help us all. Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen there are some big changes coming. Those with eyes to see and ears to hear know it. But he is not POTUS yet. There is still a sliver of time in which to prepare for what is screaming down the pike towards us. To that end, I offer you the following:
Get ready for economic hard times
I do not believe Obama’s economic policies will work. To the contrary, I think they will ruin our Nation as we slide right into a Socialist (if not Marxist) quagmire.
Pay off debt - When you lose your job or when prices rise beyond what you are able to pay, any debts you have will start choking you to death. Debt is bondage – flee it.
Obtain self sufficiency tools - You may have to do without power, or heat, or groceries – get ready to make do or do without.
Secure your home - As the economy falters many will turn to crime to support their families. Do not be an easy mark. Ensure your stuff is difficult to get to.
Prepare for social upheaval
As they start feeling empowered and entitled, certain sectors of society are going to feel like it is payback time. They are already out of control in some parts of our land – just give it time – it will get worse.
Start paying attention to your surroundings - If you continue to walk through life in Condition White you are going to be preyed upon. Remain vigilant.
Have and train with the means to protect yourself - I suggest firearms. I also suggest you learn how to make do with other weapons. Enroll in some classes. Today.
Secure your home - I know I already said it. It’s important. Lights, Locks, Alarms and response mechanisms.
Have a plan for the aftermath of defending yourself - Yeah, I know it was you against four criminals. “But why did you have to SHOOT them?” That’s what you are going to hear – as they slap the silver bracelets on. Have a plan.
This will be the most anti Second Amendment government we have ever seen
At least they are up front about it. No firearm will be safe. You have been warned.
Buy the guns you need now - They are getting more expensive by the minute and will be unavailable very soon. When you get them – zero them if needed.
Buy a lifetime supply of ammo and spare parts - Yeah, they are gonna close that loophole also.
Cache at least one gun and ammo per family member - Consider this your Plan B.
Have a plan for what you will do when they start coming for your guns - It will happen quickly and when you are least prepared. If you don’t think it through now you will be acted upon. OODA Loop.
Prepare for an attack on the USA
Our enemies have already taken the measure of this man – they are unafraid to act.
Establish a network - You are going to need friends. You are going to need help. You are going to need support. These things do not materialize overnight.
Stockpile supplies - Commerce will cease – If you don’t have it, you won’t have it.
Learn first aid - As much as you can. Get supplies.
Have and practice a bug out plan - Your little slice of Heaven may be a designated assembly area for all kinds of ugly people with guns – big guns. And radios. Alternatively, your retreat could be marked by a big plus sign on some bad guy’s map.
Prepare for a loss of Liberty
W was granted enormous powers under the Patriot Act and other executive orders. Very soon now, Obama will have those authorities. Any excuse will be found or created for a crack down and consolidation of power – “it’s for the good of all don’t you know…”
Think the deep thoughts - Take time to quietly ponder things. Remain calm. Think it through.
Make contingency plans - Primary, Alternate, Contingency and Emergency. Plans A, B, and C. Be able to flow smoothly from one to another as the situation changes.
Do not share them with strangers - Do not talk about them in public, do not discuss it on the phone or in a letter or on the Net. Exercise some discretion.
Prepare for God’s judgment on America
God will judge individuals at the end but He judges nations in the here and now and we have it coming.
Get right with God - You have no idea how much time you have – do not put this off.
Repent of your sins - I am a sinner and so are you - the awesome thing is we have a loving God Who has prepared for us a Way of salvation.
Fast and pray - Because it works.
Go back to church - It’s where God wants you to be. Go to be strengthened. Go to uplift others. Go to focus on what is really important.
I’ll see you out there.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. - 2 Chronicles 7:14
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. – Romans 10:9
