    I realize guns and ammo aren't the only part of prepping but man it would be nice if he would end the embargo against russian guns/ammo and allow the korean garands to return.

    Having emailed with a few preppers who were worried about opsec and being on this site.
    While I know the NSA probably is monitoring this site or even bought a few months ago, it
    doesn't bother me. But some people are spooked by it and have left the ranks. It doesn't
    appear that they have stopped prepping. My prepping needs to get going again. Wife used
    a lot of the foods while I was laid up. I guess it's ok, one way to rotate the foodstuffs.

    I'll give you my 2 cents worth, since you asked & since you are a moderator and part of the site administration. I'm relatively new here but a long time, very hard core prepper. IMO, this site has an identity crisis. If you want to know what I mean, hit the link for active topics. What would a newcomer, browsing the discussions, surmise this forum is about. Is it right wing politics or prepping? If the newcomer was looking for validation of his right wing views, he may stay for awhile, buy maybe look elsewhere as the election concluded. If the newcomer was not interested in politics but just wanted to learn & pass on their knowledge, they might easily go away due to the nature of the politics openly discussed.

    I understand many here are very right wing, and that is fine. But you must realize prepping is not the exclusive domain of conservatives. I'm personally middle of the road... very conservative on some topics, less so on others. Note this is the last I will say about my political views. But there are plenty of folks that lean liberal that also prep & also love guns. My point is, all the politics discussed openly here, especially the hateful thread titles, will run off many folks, some conservatives but lots of folks middle of the political spectrum. I happen to have thick skin and learned my lesson here real quick about joining a political discussion. I'll never do that again and was exceedingly hesitant to answer your question. Only reason I am doing so is because I believe in giving back.

    I've moderated forums in the past & would not begin to ask you or other site admin to add work for you by adding rules & policing them. But my suggestion would be to separate the politics from the prepping, so that preppers not interested in political hate could find a home here and preppers wanting to spend time discussing politics could do so in their own place (maybe private subforum).

    Thank you for what you & the others do here. I know it is not easy & not always fun.

    The term political hate. Odd. Is there any other political discussion?
    What is the difference between disallowing political discussion and simply not participating?

    One is censorship. Do the forum masters have that right since this is a private site? Yes, I believe so. They also have the right to allow it.
    Each one of us has the right to join the discussion or not. If not comfortable with a discussion, don't join in.
    Just because I am peaceful does not mean I have forgotten how to be violent.
    If I am to die tonight I shall see that the night does not pass quietly.

    Haven't stopped prepping yet, my wife and I just discussed a couple days ago about taking an inventory after the Christmas season. We rotate our stock continually so every once in awhile we need to inventory to make sure our stock is appropriate . We need to tweak our bug out a bit to accommodate for the winter months.

    Know the Trumpster is making me feel a bit less apprehensive about the future. Might be affecting other folks the same way.

    Good point, maybe the feds stopped checking in so traffic on this site is down.
