Considering the some total of the spiritual, financial, and other important areas of the American culture of today, do the Amish have it right? They are self and community independent. They are free from nearly all "laws" of the state considering their own statues override any law that is not for health and safety - even then they put limits on compliance. They are generally unaffected by the American problems that plague the US. They really are somewhat libertarian/tea party thinking when it comes to outside influence infecting the home. Do the Amish have it right - or at least more prepared for the future suffering that is coming? Are they really the original "preppers?"
