Many preppers have a hard time convincing their family members or friends that they are not crazy, and perhaps they should start to start prepping as well.

This may be the result of people having the wrong perception as to why we prep. Or it could be because they are afraid to admit there is a problem.

Below are 4 (not a comprehensive list) reasons why we chose to prep, and why you might want to start prepping…

We Are Stewards of Our Civilization:

Despite being called crazy, conspiracy theorists, nihilists, socially selfish, etc., preppers are actually socially responsible individuals. Preppers anticipate what disasters will possibly occur in their areas and plan accordingly.

This allows preppers to not be reliant on the government for rescue, food, water and emergency supplies. Where as the majority of American citizens who chose not to prepare would rather put their trust on the government to get themselves and their families through a disaster or crisis.

To Protect Our Family:

Being prepared can save your life and the lives of your loved ones. By preparing, you anticipate what might happen and when it does, you will have a plan in place, supplies on hand and piece of mind. Failure to plan is the same as planning to fail.

Economic Problems:

We are aware that the United States is in deep financial trouble. Sooner or later our creditors will call in our debt, which would likely trigger an economic crisis like we have never experienced before. So how do you prepare for this? Here are  25 Things to Do to Prepare for an Economic Collapse

Natural Disasters:

The United States experiences a variety of natural disasters every year, from tornadoes, hurricanes and droughts. So it makes sense to start prepping for any of these disasters now!
