ok, so lets say hypothetically the poo hits the fan and we get the great depression 2.
what would you do then?
as for my self I've always wanted to live as a early american pioneer, so I would either go out to eastern or wester NC and live off the land.
You kind of make it sound like a game. You won't have any money. You won't be able to obtain anything unless you grow it. You would be screwed considering the times we are living in (unless you're already a farmer).
Send everyone that can carry a rifle into the woods to find the only food they can, and it'll be hunted down to nothing in no time at all.
People would die, quick.
I don't believe that would be an issue due to the fact that while a lot of americans would be out of work the Government will never have to drop essential personnel like power plant workers police and fire ect, the US can always print money if they had to but, unless someone started dropping bombs on us I don't think you would need to worry about contaminated food.
as before mentioned let's say I'm experienced, at least I believe enough to live off the land if I had to, but with that said I don't believe I started this topic with "do you think I could make it?" as the question, it was what would you do?
You really have no idea, do you?
I have planned junk out 15 years in advance. Yes, I said 15 years. [...stuff...]
You're a weird and creepy man.
