Time to get started

Hello to everyone. I'm afraid I fall into the category of newbie, but it's time for me to get started, unless I just want to be a victim of what I believe to be some very tough times ahead. I almost think the greatest threat to our survival (Americans in general), comes from enjoying our high standard of living for so many years, having become accustomed to such a high comfort level, which unfortunately has us so dependent on others for that modern lifestyle. Frankly, that frightens me, as I see our country continue to deteriorate at such an alarming rate. I have to somehow find a way to become at least somewhat more self-sufficient, even though I sense that it may be too late for someone just starting from scratch. Anyway, I'm hoping to learn a lot here in these forums from all of you that were smart enough to see this collapse of our economy coming a number of years ago. And I hope eventually I will be able to contribute to some one else's preparedness.
