positive news stories about preppers
I've been reading good news stories about preppers from the New York Times to the Seattle Times. One of the caption from The Seattle Times I liked and sums it up;

"Preppers are no more crazy than those wacky people who have homeowners insurance. ... "

Back in the 80s - 90s before the word 'prepper' gone mainstream it was the survivalist movement and nothing that was printed was positive though I still prefer the word 'Self-Reliant' The liberal rag mother jones still insist we are nuts/wackos even the replies to the article painted us as nut jobs... so be it

Only the weak relish the thought of an All-powerful government

Seems people, especially officials, always seen to think the worst of things and others they do not know. It pays to be friendly with them. Everyone is a prospective Pepper. Prepping to at least some degree is just good solid common sense here in FL.

A good number of Pols and and the public assumes we are nuts because a number of preppers involve firearms in the plans and prep for situations a good number of people deemed impossible in today's world given the magnitude of government resources (thus the problem; complacency) Many of people put us in the same league as the POS timothy mcveigh's of the world effectively labeling us for no other reason but to discredit preppers like they did with the survivalist movement.

Granted we have nuts just itching for confrontation with the government that claim to being preppers, those people are NOT preppers and certainly not friends to any serious prepper, as a serious prepper I want to be left alone under the radar and avoiding confrontations!

We have on one side the fence where the government says be prepared for natural disasters and on the other-side of the fence Pols deemed us a threat because we take it seriously (bureaucracy)

And welcome to SCP Scotty

I think the weather is more of a danger to us here in FL than the bureaucracy. The .gov these days is composed of mostly professional hobbyists. The true Statesmen who speak truth and understanding seem to get squelched pretty fast.
