Hey, I do love the new avatar. It's different, and makes a contrast to the same ole' same ole'.
First off there is a 10% referral fee for all info shared
No doubt the US economy is fried, and the dollar will be toast in no time.
I personally wouldn't worry about bills, as there are so many People in debt..... The only thing possible when they steal the rest of the value in
the dollar will be erasing the debt............ Yes, that is what I said, probably the only one on ATS saying that, but
I am sure.
I would do a few things with savings, no doubt they will steal it. One is to simply convert it over to junk silver; which is older 95% silver US
coins from the 60's, and older. I'd stay away from gold just because it is worth so much for so little..........how are You going to barter for
simple food should You have a coin that was valued in US $ of 950 bucks......... not gonna work.
So, should Your savings be a lot I would actually consider a home outside of the states as an investment. Places such as Mexico, and Central America
are a just a couple safe days drive from Texas.
The economies are growing, and People from all over the World are immigrating there to escape pressures in their own govt.
Should You be interested in that u2u me, and I can give more info.
From there I would look into a rural property in the states, or a RV should You need to get out of the larger cities.........RV's are a dime a dozen
used. A fairly nice clean older one cost's under 6k.
Between either a rural property, or RV I'd recommend enough food to sustain Your family for 4 months.... Way more than enough to adapt to anykind of
I have no doubt the US govt. will go down, NONE. I don't think it will be for over a month. Things will get back to a "sense" of normal after
that time frame.
It's only a matter of the difference in time You'll need to have the preparations for. So, I wouldn't blow Your savings on perishables.
Rural land, RV, or land/house out of the country.
Did I answer Your question?
