Having read the ops posting and giving it several thoughts on such the following can be stated:
Based off of the definition as to what a Prepper is then the op has left off a few individuals:
The Federal government, namely the executive and the legislative branch of the federal government.
Any military organization, as they would have all of the qualifications.
Most governments of the world, as they would have at least some if not all of what is mentioned there.
The Boy Scouts and any and all scouting organizations, as they are taught about how to survive in the wild, live off the land and be prepared.
People who live and have survived any natural disaster or live in an area where disasters have been known to take place.
People who live where they get snowed in for several weeks if not months at a time, like the rocky mountains or even Alaska.
So does that mean that large number of people, the millions of people who live in the US, who are in the federal government, (mentally challenged),
the US military (who prepare for scenarios of world ending, have large stockpiles of weapons, are trained for survival, and have a large number of
resources), the populations of gulf coast, the tornado alley, those who live on the front range, in the mountains of the pacific north west, and
Alaska, who understand the terrain and the natural disasters that happen, are all of those people terrorist?
I have lived in several areas where if you were not prepared for some kind of diseaster, you are an idiot cause if anything, recent history should
teach us don't trust that the federal government is going to be of any help when diseaster strikes. (Just ask the people of New Orleans, Katrina,
the BP oil well and the people who just went through Sandy.)
