My post apocalyptic survival skill is...
I am a firearms expert, I can MAKE my own gunpowder and have made my own firearm out of junk in the garage. I also know wilderness survival and how to obtain fresh drinking water in the wilds. I am also diplomatic and can barter with fairness. Guerrilla tactics are a specialty (survival and offense). My creative and outside the box thinking will help. I also do not lose my "cool" when in a combat-type situation and can think clearly in the most chaotic and hostile (violent) conditions. I have been under gunfire and fought back - not going "crazy" from the chaos, I think clearly off-the-cuff.
My biggest challenge...
I am middle-aged with no wife or children. I have been married, but no kids other than a sort-of step-son (the son of one of my ex's from a prior marriage). I raised him as my own and still help him when he needs it, but I am limited in only giving him advice. I am challenged because I WANT a family (wife and children of my own)... meaning my wife would have to be half my age to safely bear children, so that isn't going to happen. Being disabled, I need a physical caregiver. Without a family, I will struggle with my broken neck/back and Adhesive Arachnoiditis in my spinal cord, when I am older. I will die alone.
I want to invest in...
Gold and Silver bullion, Subverse News, Manned missions to Mars, Firearms companies, Precious and semi-precious gemstones, YouTube personalities (content creators).
I can be most helpful at...
Being disabled, I am VERY limited in what I can do physically and get worn down fast mentally. I am best at mentoring and giving clear explanations to people's difficult questions.
I think we can fix America by...
America is not broken, only "infested". The Leftist ideology is turning the USA into a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah. The nation will fall if Leftists gain power in the government or take over the social fabric of this nation. Refusing to grant federal taxpayer's dollars to universities/colleges and high schools if they allow that money to go toward anything but STEM fields is how we can reduce the toxic influence that is the "infection" that spreads this ideology. Defunding these classes will force students to take these ridiculous/worthless courses because they will have to spend their own money on the classes. This will reduce the faculty as class size shrinks. Infestation of Leftist ideology will eventually become extinct.
My most influential mentor is...
My "Papa" (my dad's step-dad who I only know as "Papa") He was a WWII Veteran of the Pacific Theater and fought alongside the Marines in Saipan, Tarawa, et.al. (he was Navy). He was on two ships that were sunk by the Japanese. As a machinist, he taught me mechanical "tinkering" from a young age. He was the "Greatest Generation's" MacGyver... able to repair cars and electronics with "whatever was in the shop". He taught me creative thinking and application of that creativity. He taught me the values of a good, hard day of work.
