Oh yeah, I definitely agree that the government needs to show more interest in the way the government is ran and the direction we are headed. Ron Paul isn't all bad, but his foreign policy stinks. Evidently he wants the country to go back to the way it used to be, solely based on the constitution. On that issue I agree 110%.

To put in perspective; biological attack, EMP, solar flare, asteroid / comet impact, HN51, avian flues, earthquake, multiple dirty bombs, numerous volcanic eruptions, economic national / world collapse, pestilences, plague, on and on... Individually in our own life time the odds are probably low. Taken collectively, what do you think the odds are?

Given the current climate with the economic system and all the countries that just love us to death, yea, I be a prepper

If we place huge tariffs on all imports those countries will put even bigger tariffs on ours and it turns into a tariff wars, which is very bad for an economy. Speaking by the military and political versions of isolationism I believe in it a little more lenient. I am all for letting Africa screw themselves over, but the Middle East is different. Not only do we have a vital ally there (Israel) but I believe we are holding an attack at bay by being there. If we pulled out the war would eventually end up on our soil, again, a very bad thing.
It just seems like we're doin all the back scratching and getting nothing in return.
How could the war end up on our soil ? With all the guns the general public have I think some country would have to have some big berries to actually invade us.

He didn't mention isolationism. Goods imported to the U.S. pay little to no tariffs, while our exports pay big. Why? Because the politicians that control these policies stuff their own pockets while screwing the rest of us. China is buying this country piece by piece. Corporations, malls, parks, the list goes on and on while numbnuts look to save 8 cents at Walmart buying Chinese products that are lucky to last a few months. Factories keep closing, but nobody seems to realize this downward spiral is getting out of control.

Korea, china didn't have enough firearms for the troops, they came blowing bugles, and in human waves. China has more than enough people to just overwhelm us, and damn the cost in lives.

A quick add to my ranting and back on subject ... Imports play an important role in every economy(we can't grow a good pineapple, we feed countries with our grain), but if we quit producing "things" our economy will really sink. What are people prepping for? A solar flare happens this weekend, peaking next year, with the potential for frying most electronics with radiation. A meteor passed close to earth last year, if it hit us it would be ugly. Science has proved both has happened multiple times in the history of the earth. Not if, but when? A year, a thousand?
