Question Where would be the best place to live if an economic collapse were to happen?

Since they're saying we're coming closer and closer to that day that our system wont be able to sustain our debt. Where do you guys think we should live if that were to happen?

If you are in the city and do not have guns you are a dead man walking when the SHTF. Right now would be a good time to move out in the boonies and learn survival skills.

I'll likely be dead by then anyway, and I don't have anything worth much, so if someone is going to kill me over my stuff, there ain't a lot I can do about it anyway, gun or no.

Away from urban centers. If there's an economic collapse, there will be chaos, looting, death and destruction in the population centers. Of course, many of these urban centers have strict gun control laws thanks to statist fools, so it will truly be survival of the fittest. I wouldn't be counting on the police to arrive in time to save your life, family, and/or property.
