Episode-123- There is No Downside to the Survival Lifestyle

Today we examine some misconceptions about what survivalism is, how survivalists prepare and what actually being a survival minded person is all about.  The media paints us all as camouflage fatigue wearing, war game playing, gun nuts that live in bunkers full or rice, beans and MREs.  Nothing could be further from the truth…

Tune in today to hear…

  • How you save money as a survivalist vs. blowing your life savings on MREs and Guns
  • Why storing food will make you sleep better at night and not cost you a penny more then you will spend on food anyway, if you follow the mantra, eat what you store and store what you eat

  • Why you are better off as a prepper even if nothing ever happens and something always happens sooner or later
  • Why prepping and survivalism is for everyone but modern media hype turns off so many
  • The reality that the good guy doesn’t always win and what it means to you
  • How realizing your own mortality leads people into practical common sense survivalism
  • How businesses save money with capital deferrals and so can you

  • Yes guns are a great investment (no guys you can’t now use this excuse to buy every gun you want, don’t tell you wife I said that)
  • More in developing independence from multiple systems
  • What we can learn about prepping from failures by dieters

  2. “There is No Downside to the Survival Lifestyle”

    Sorry Jack but you got that title wrong.
    The downside is that once my eyes were opened, and I started to prep, it continues to cause me pain watching my family continue to be sheep. Even worse knowing I have done all I can to help open their eyes, and have them not care one bit. That is the one any only downside.

  3. Good show Jack, I enjoyed it. Your numbers on term life were ultra-conservative though. I bought $750k of term for $99 a month and I have substantial family history that prevents me from getting the best rates. Your show hit our strategy on the head. If we think of something that has no downside, we do it. Apply that rule to all aspects of your life and we and the country would be so much stronger.

  4. Very good topic Jack.
    What has keeped my wife on board so far is the realization that any money I’ve spent on preps we will eventually eat, use or profit from. Not a penny wasted.
    It is “indeed” an insurance policy were the premium goes from one of our pockets to another and without agent’s fees.
    Keep up the good work,
    Gary

  5. Awesome episode. One additional reason there’s no downside to storing food: if there is no crisis, you can donate any uneaten food to a food bank.
