I believe in the Constitution, and the only country in the world that does not have a name, The United States of America.
The US is not faultless by stretch of the imagination, but it is still the greatest place on earth. There are many that admire and despise what we are and stand for. I cannot change the latter attitudes. You do have to agree that there are many people and countries that want to be “like us” within their own cultural or societal views.
I say the above statement based on having traveled extensively throughout most of the world and spent a considerable amount of time in third and second world countries during my adult life. I am not a apologetic at all for what this country has done for me, my family, who I am, and being only a third generation American from immigrants who toiled and died in coal mines and how I feel about it all. I come from no “old money”.
I consider myself a patriot and will defend my country with my all,but not my government. Some may ponder that statement a bit of a oxymoron, but think about it for a moment, our founding fathers have all gone on the record extensively about repressive governments. Jefferson, Monroe, and Madison are three that come to mind.

christopher Parrett, Thank you sir fir the above information,Leaving religion aside, every person can only gain by learning about prepping from the LDS, they are beyond doubt the only real constant source source of information on prepping as a way of life.
Check out EDC Forum. Great community of all kinds of Everyday Carry types. Gear reviews galore.
We’ve put together a free Skills Library for Preppers. It’s more of an “aftermath” library since it’s made up of several thousand books from the 1800s through early 1900s. They’re all public domain books or expired copyrights which are freely available however they’re scattered across history libraries and other sources all over the world and can be time consuming to track down.
They detail skills and knowledge that has been lost in the last few generations but are the skills people would need to survive, rebuild and prosper in the aftermath of an EMP event, natural or manmade.
There are a few places that sell them collected on CDs but that’s a barrier to some people and we felt they should be freely available to everyone. We’re trying to spread the word about the library and we’ve set up information so any other websites who care to can also post the links directly to the books without having to actually host all of them (40gb-50gb).
The library isn’t complete yet but it’s growing rapidly and we expect it to continue growing. The number of books that are suitable for inclusion is huge and I’ve barely scratched the surface.

p.s. We run a commercial site but also want to openly contribute something to the Prepper community as well. So we’re using the commercial site to sponsor the library.
Just wanted to pass this information along to you for your subscribers…
