Sobering words

Over at Wilson's place... Read the whole thing.

All along I assumed that I was an 'average American voter' and that certain things important to me were also important to most other voters. I assumed that this mythical 'average voter' was more concerned about the country's long term wellbeing rather than their own petty personal gain. I assumed that their future freedom and that of their children/grandchildren was actually important to them. You know what they say about assumptions.
Time is running short. Good luck to us all.
MrsZ and I are slowly making some of our own plans. Like Wilson, being OUT of debt is high on our priority list. Admittedly without giving up all of our hobbies, which aren't cheap, but are important to our sanity.

Like Wilson, I'm not really planning on any more guns once the pending WallyRifle is done. I'm trolling a few pieces here and there to potential buyers; any income from that will be turned into ammo and reloading materials.

Our garden for next year is roughly three times the size it was this year. We canned and froze a tremendous amount of vegetables this year, and we're getting into them already.

Once the rest of the budget is under control, I'm putting silver on the list. We've got a small amount already; it's time for more.

Hedge your bets, kids.
