The Survivalist Congressman

Representative Roscoe Bartlett is a long serving Congressman from Maryland, this year his seat is in jeopardy as Democrats redrew the Congressman’s District to include a heavily liberal area (not a missake!) so now he is in jeopardy of losing his seat.  This is not what makes Congressman Bartlett unique however.

He is known as the Survivalist Congressman.  A devout Seventh Day Adventist, Patent holding Scientist, Engineer and Farmer his is also a Preppper and the subject of a documentary called “Urban Danger”

Deep in the Hollers of the West Virginia woods Congresman Bartlett has a cabin stocked with food preps, alertnative energy systems and wood burning stoves, and other items needed to survive off the grid.

Congressman Bartlett is very concerned about the Nation’s Power Grid and has expounded for years on the danger the U.S. faces from an EMP attack and has had the Book One Second After by William Forstchen entered into the Congressional record advising Americans to read it.  I loved the book myself, it takes place in a small North Carolina town after a EMP device has been detonated and everything with that needs power has been fried and anarchy ensues as individuals have to adapt to the new “normal”

He believes that 80% of the Americans living in cities today should relocate, You should have a year’s supply (or whatever you can afford) of emergency food and have a emergency plan for you and your family.

Congressman Bartlett will be giving the keynote address at the Sustainable Preparedness Expo in Spokane Washington this year.
