Are you ready to Flee?

Earlier today I posted an article, Adapt or Overcome. This posting highlighted the struggles that Nechama Tec endured in order to survive the onslaught of the Nazi Party. Literally thousands of Jews were murdered from her home town. Her family was only one of three family's that survived. They survived because her parents decided to take on a false identity and become Christians, all in the name of survival.

Then I read an article over at Survival Blog about leaving the country. This article highlighted the Adapt or Overcome post and showed, me at least, that prior preparations are the key to surviving an unexpected change in political direction.

One thing is certain. Ideologies such as Conservatism, Christianity, and Liberty are becoming increasingly unwelcome in our country, at least with the federal government. Click here to read the report for yourself. Today, Tea parties are being held all across this nation, as the people are attempting to make themselves heard. I believe their cries are falling on deaf ears.

Like young Tec's hometown, the situation can turn on us, overnight. Those of us on the wrong side of the political spectrum can instantly become public enemy number one. Are you ready, right now, to get out of dodge, should the need arise? Not sure? Then ask yourself the following questions.

  • Does everyone in your family have a passport or visas?
  • Do you have cash, on hand, in the currency of the country you wished to flee to?
  • Can you speak the language of your destination country?
  • How long does it take to get a visa to the place to where you wish to flee?
These were just a couple of thoughts I had after reading Survivalblog's post. If fleeing is part of your plans, you need to have a working knowledge of your new destination. Pay attention to how they dress, speak, local traditions and customs. If you bug out to a different country, the last thing you'll want to do is stand out.
