Many preppers are having trouble convincing their family members or friends to start prepping as well. This could be due to the fact that a lot of people have the wrong perception as to why preppers well, prep.

The following are 5 (but there are more) reasons why we choose to prep and why you too should start prepping…

1. We Are Upstanding Citizens

Despite being called freaks, weirdos, doomsayers, socially selfish, etc., preppers are actually socially responsible citizens. Preppers anticipate what disasters will possibly occur in their areas and plan for it well in advance. What does this mean? It means that preppers are not reliant on the government, rescue groups and private organizations for food, water and emergency supplies. Unlike the majority of American citizens who chose not to prepare and simply put their trust on the government to get through a disaster or crisis.

2. We Want To Protect Our Family

Prepping can save your life and the lives of your loved ones. By preparing for disasters, you anticipate what could happen and when it does happen, you know how to act the right way and not panic or lose your head.

3. Impending Economic Problems

Are you aware that the United States is in deep financial trouble? Sooner or later our creditors will come after us and that will trigger an economic crisis like we never experienced before. So how do you prepare for this?

4. Natural Disasters, Obviously

The US experiences a variety of natural disasters every year from tornadoes to hurricanes to draughts so it makes sense to prep for any of these disasters and start now.

5. The Gradual Collapse Of Society

Incidents of mass shootings are becoming more frequent and the number of terror attacks around the world is increasing. We need to be prepared because these events don’t only happen to ‘other people’ or in ‘other places’.
