Here are four reasons why we think the government is watching us. And a final note on what to do about it. (see below)
Conservative Preppers are more independent minded than the average liberal.
It’s true that many preppers work in groups (see below), however as most of you know we preppers are a stubborn people. We want to find the answer ourselves. For instance Dad and I were recently trying to pick a tomahawk for his bug-out-bag so we ordered one and did a big review to help people like us. Check it out SOG Tactical tomahawk.
We are actively looking for ways to improve our situation, and this liberal heavy-spending government doesn’t like it. They want us to bow down and ask for permission to eat.
I could go on for hours on this topic… but I wont.
Preppers are more able (and willing) to defend against a hostile government.
I would say that most preppers love their country. I would also say that most preppers aren’t going to stand by while their government steps on their personal rights. This is a heated topic and I can just hear my dad fuming about it now. This is clearly one of the main reasons we as preppers have to be careful about what we say and do in the digital age.
On a side note there are a few other groups that the FatherSonPreppers belong to which are also regularly watched. This includes Military Veterans (me), members of pro-gun organizations, local and national Tea-Party groups, and the list goes on.
Most conservative preppers have at least a small support group.
These groups are made mostly of family and close friends. For anyone who has been in a tough spot you know how handy a support group can be, or the opposite for those who have no support.
It’s a bit harder for the government to make people dissapear when there are 5,10, or 20+ people that regularly interact with them. This may sound a bit far to the right for most people but its safe to say the government is paying close attention.
Conservative preppers are against big government. They actively seek to minimize government involvement in their lives.
Its no secret, we are tired of the handouts. Tired of our hard work being taxed and given directly to people who don’t think they need to be a productive part of society. I for one actively attempt to lessen the governments hold on my money and my life. I know there are many people reading this who agree. We are a threat to the current liberal system. Strong citizens tend to make their own choices and speak up when a mismanaged government tries to mismanage the people.
What can we do?
This is by far the most difficult question facing conservatives at the moment. Conservatism seems like an up hill battle.
I will tell you what to do.
Make yourself the strongest citizen you can. Be prepared for disaster, famine, and hostile government actions. Learn to survive where no one else can, and desire to survive when it seems like no one can.
My heart is with all of you.
