If you want security, a food source and water source, go to Hawaii or Alaska.
If there was a total socio-economic meltdown the mainland U.S. would be a bloodbath.
Buy a boat...fish, trap. If you are in Alaska you can *gasp* use firewood for heating.
Besides, if there is a collapse you can bet the US military gonna come in and commandeer your farm for 'national security' to feed their troops while your family gets squat. FEMA probably would love to take that farm too.
It's a tougher life living in the north country, not for everyone. But Alaska would do very well in a global meltdown.
And if you ain't got the skill to bait a hook you ain't gonna survive the meltdown anyways, so no worries.
