A Call To Action


Tragedy and Uprisings Daily

We certainly live in “interesting” times. We start a new week with our nation and the world in chaos! Every day a new horror is revealed. The United States is at a tipping point. Not since the Civil War has our country been so divided. Our president  and other leaders are directly responsible for a large part of what is happening in our country. The media is fanning the flames as fast as they can! Everywhere we turn we are faced with Anger, Hatred, and Uncertainty. People are rioting day and night against the very people protecting them!  And it only looks to get worse as we move into the upcoming  elections.

No Wonder Things Are Out Of Control!

I did some research on our population, and uncovered some shocking facts. Did you know that as of Feb. 2016, over 80.1% of Americans live in a urban area.? And here is where it gets crazy- 94.7% of the land in America is classified as rural. That means that 80.1%  of all the people in the US live on only 5.3% of our land. I got all of this information from the U.S. Census Bureau Website. Think about that as you are sitting in a traffic jam on your way to work, and as you look out of windows at the masses shoved together.

There’s No Chance for Equal Representation

Here’s something else to think about- 19.9% of Americans actually work and produce almost all of your food, raw materials such as paving material, concrete, metal ores, and energy such as coal, natural gas, and oil. All of the rest of you are stuck working in cubicles, staring at computer screens, or  in the service sector.We actually have way more college graduates than jobs for them, and yet we increasingly rely on illegal immigrants to provide our labor force. And of course there are the millions upon millions of Americans who do nothing at all, while blindly relying on the government to provide everything for them. So the sad truth is we folks who live in the country, working hard to provide our fellow Americans  with the resources they need to exist have no chance at any actual representation in our government.  Here in Missouri where we live it’s even worse- 93% of all Missourians live in only 3 counties. We see all these people screaming for gun control, more handouts, and the continuous increase of the government’s power with alarm.  But we also know that we are the people who can provide for ourselves in an ever more precarious world. And don’t kid yourself, things are going to get a lot worse (SOON!) before they get better!

I’m An Ex-City Boy!

The odds are that most of you reading this live in or near a big city. I was raised in the suburbs of Houston,Texas . Fortunately for me I also spent most of my summers and holidays at my grandparents farm north of Fort Worth, Texas. That plus a lot of reading convinced me at an early age that I wanted no part of big cities! I married a country girl, which pretty much slammed the door on city life for us. But the more I look at what’s happening today, the more I’m sure that NOW is the time to get out. There are some really bad times ahead for America, and the last place you want to be is in a city where there is probably only a few days worth of food and supplies on hand. Do you really want to trust the government to feed and protect your family?  I don’t!

A Call To Action

It’s time you sat down with your family and discuss these things. You can get out of the city and into the country with less difficulty than you think. All it takes is the decision to do it, and the pieces will start falling into place.  I am convinced that if you don’t do it soon, then you won’t be able to. If these riots and crazy attacks keep happening, then the next thing will be some sort of declaration of emergency, followed by martial law. Think about seeing soldiers in armored vehicles at every corner checking ID’s and mandatory curfews. Far Fetched?  Not really- for the last few years the Military and The Department of Homeland Security have been holding joint exercises which are described as “Urban Pacification”.  They are ready to step in and take over at a moment’s notice. And the worst part is that most of the people will welcome them- at first….. And by the time they realize how bad that is, it will be too late. Please don’t let your family be trapped !

First Steps

So you’ve decided to get out. Now what?  First read about some of the ways to get your own piece of land as explained in the archives of this blog. You’ll find lot’s of ideas and steps to take. I know there are a million and one “Prepper” and “Survivalist” blogs out there. Most of them just want to sell you lots of stuff. A good guideline is to look at all the ads they have posted. The more ads they have, the less likely they are to have your interests at heart. I don’t have any ads on my website, and when I do mention products it’s because they work- I get no commission or kickback.  What I want is to save as many of you as I can, and maybe get some good neighbors in the process. You can do this! There are lots of opportunities and land for people who want to start a new life.  Yes it’s a big change, but it’s worth it. Start looking online, talking to real estate agents, and going to look at the areas that interest you. Trying to move 20 or 30 miles out of the city and commute is not the best way to go- when people can’t find food at the supermarkets, they will be pouring out of the cities.  And they won’t be asking  you to help them, they will be trying to get what they need by any means possible!

Don’t Wait Too Long!

OK, I’m going to stop for now and let you think about your future.  There are job’s available in rural areas. As long as you are willing to work hard, and become a part of your new community, then people will welcome you and help you. Just don’t complain or constantly tell everyone how great life was in the city. Internet is available everywhere now, so home offices work just as well in rural areas as in the city. Now is the time! As our cities become more and more dangerous and lawless and tragedy and uprisings occur daily,  then more people will start to flee them. Don’t get trapped, instead start the process today! I’m here to help you, and others will too! Don’t forget to visit our Facebook page: and comment, also please subscribe to this blog, and stay on top of the latest developments.

  • Great article, I couldn’t agree more. I’ll be reading your other articles on how to make the move. I did have one question. What kind of jobs are available in rural areas?

    • Hi John, Great question. There are many types of jobs in rural areas. The best way to learn more would be to check out the classified ads of the towns nearest where you want to live.
      Here in the Missouri Ozarks, there is a wide range of jobs, including retail stores, office, truck driving, manufacturing, and service jobs such as mechanics, carpenters, etc. We also have temp agencies that are always hiring. If you can’t get a job here, it’s because you don’t want to work!
      Another good source of info is the book: How to Make Money Homesteading by Tim Young. It’s available through Amazon, and most major book sellers.
      And there are also many ways to work online from home. Broadband Internet is available in rural areas via Satellite Providers, and local wireless providers.
      I hope that you can see that there are lots of employment opportunities in rural locations, making it possible to get out of the city, while still providing for your family!
