Just a thought, but does anyone actually expect the USA to last forever? If so, it would be the first in the history of the world to do so. If not, what's next?
You don't have to be a prepper to be a realist, and the country is fundamentally different from what it was in 1776. Back then, people despised and mistrusted government, but nowadays they want to know why their check is late.
Lastly, and quite frankly, I don't want to share a country with a bunch of neoSocialists. I'd rather throw down and get it over with.
