Making Your Home a Haven of Security
The institutions of the United States of America are faltering and the federal government is now the enemy of liberty here and throughout the world. Economic problems are compounded by regulations, high corporate taxes and the Obama Administration’s War on Energy. We have always known that an economic storm was brewing and we pronounced, “It’s not if it will happen, the question is when.” The answer to that question is now.
The election of 2012 has been stolen through rigged voting machines, neglected Military ballots, and widespread and varied forms of voter fraud. The government of the United States is in a state of chaos and cannot be depended upon to care for the needs of its citizens. We’re on our own to meet the challenges that face us in literally a matter of weeks. Follow these simple steps to take control of your well-being and safety, as well as that of your family, and to provide an example to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers.

For your freezer: Properly wrapped meats and other foods will last in a freezer well over 90 days. The key to making your freezer an effective tool for home storage is to Store what you Eat, and Eat what you Store. If there is empty space in your freezer, fill the spaces with 3/4 full water bottles. Your freezer will be more efficient when it is filled with frozen items and, if your lose power for a time, the food will stay frozen longer, up to 72 hours if you leave the freezer door closed.
- Cured meats such as ham, sausages, bacon, etc.
- Frozen fruits and vegetables
- Prepared foods such as pizzas
- Butter, margarine, cream cheese, block cheese, shredded cheese
- Sealed packages of pork, beef or poultry
- Breads, bagels
- Candy bars
- Ice cream (don’t underestimate the value of comforting treats, especially if you have children)
- Bags of flour, biscuit or pancake mix (placing these items in the freezer greatly extends their shelf life and will fill up the empty space that may make your freezer less efficient)
- A basic first aid kit
- Several flashlights with batteries, tactical flashlights, emergency candles or lamps, fuel, matches or lighters
- If you have an outdoor grill, keep it well maintained and the fuel tank full
- Sternos, a hibachi or other simple cooking devices
- A battery powered or crank up radio S
- Short wave “HAM” radio and trained operator within your circle of friends or church group
GROW A GARDEN, OR POTTED VEGETABLES IF YOU LIVE IN AN APARTMENT:
- Obtain and store seeds properly
- Obtain basic gardening implements
- Become educated about gardening basics
- Teach your children how to work in a garden and enjoy the process of growing food
HAVE THE MEANS TO DEFEND YOUR HOME AND FOOD STORAGE:
Obtain firearms and learn how to use them. Know how to care for them, store them, and receive proper training so that you will be psychologically prepared to use them! Social chaos is often a life and death struggle and frightened, hungry people will try to get rid of you and take your stuff.
The policies of the Obama Administration are designed to squeeze ordinary Americans into desperation and dependence. Food and fuel prices are skyrocketing. At best, our home storage will feed us as we sacrifice other luxuries in order to afford the things we need to sustain our home economies. At worst, our lives will depend up on what we do today to prepare. We can defend against the garrote of Socialism at our throats through personal preparedness. Everything on these lists can be obtained at supermarkets, wholesale clubs, co-ops, or online specialty stores. Act now. We have only a few weeks to prepare for the Fiscal Cliff.
The only governments we can depend upon are those layers of government closest to the individual: ourselves, family, church, neighborhood, community, and county. There will be great peace and safety in acting now to make your home a refuge from the storm.
