As Democrat-led cities in America continue to crumble under the weight of soaring violent crime and skyrocketing inflation, more and more people are taking matters into their own hands. The housing crisis has reached unprecedented levels of unaffordability, leaving many on the brink of homelessness. In response, individuals are turning to alternative lifestyles, such as living off the grid.
With a growing desire for self-sufficiency, searches for “live off grid” on the internet have skyrocketed. Faced with the harsh reality of the housing crisis, people are exploring options like buying or building tiny homes on affordable plots of land, where they can source their own food and water. It’s a creative solution to a dire situation.
Even companies are capitalizing on the trend. Home Depot, for example, is now selling tiny homes called “Getaway Pads,” catering to those looking to escape the grips of the housing crisis. The RV industry has also seen a surge in popularity, with parked mobile home shipments hitting new highs compared to last year. People are finding refuge and flexibility in these alternative living arrangements.
Unfortunately, the housing crisis is not only driving people to seek unconventional housing solutions; it’s also fueling an increase in homelessness. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that over 577,000 Americans are homeless today, representing an 11 percent increase compared to the previous year. This alarming rise is the largest recorded increase since 2007, underscoring the severity of the crisis.
Shockingly, while thousands of Americans struggle to find stable housing, President Joe Biden is prioritizing spending hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money on housing for illegal migrants. This misplaced focus only exacerbates the issue and neglects the needs of American citizens. It’s clear that the Biden administration’s priorities are skewed.
In the face of such challenges, it’s commendable to see individuals taking matters into their own hands and seeking alternative living options like going off the grid. It’s a testament to the resilience and resourcefulness of the American people. However, it’s disheartening to witness the lack of effective action from our government in addressing the housing crisis and prioritizing the needs of its own citizens. The Daily Fetched will continue to shine a light on these important issues and hold our leaders accountable to the American people.
