Trigger to America’s Day of Reckoning

Troy Grice, author of Indivisible, discusses his recently released book with Doctor Prepper. This book paints a picture of a failing American economy as the trigger to America’s day of reckoning.

Triggered by a Japanese liquidity crisis, a global run on U.S. treasuries overwhelms the Federal Reserve and collapses the American economy. Mass inflation sparks civil unrest and panic as store shelves are cleaned out, gas prices rise tenfold, and American’s life savings are wiped out. Desperate to maintain control, the federal government grows increasingly totalitarian. The president orders the Army home from all its foreign posts in an attempt to restore law and order, but the army’s battle-hardened attitude and heavy-handed tactics only manage to spur the rebellion on. People panic as the leadership dictates WROL and battle is enjoined by the population.

Prepper Fiction gives us a look into what possibly could happen when the “poop hits the propeller!”
