It should be clear that the U.S. government is and has been actively preparing for a major crisis or disaster for nearly a decade. They've spent billions of dollars on everything from ammunition and riot gear to emergency food supplies and internment camps to house the masses. And though Congress considers anyone who stockpiles for an emergency a potential terrorist, even President Obama warned Americans in June that they should prepare for disaster.
Officials at the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency want us to believe that all of the supplies and planning have been put into place to assist the American people. But as we well know, should real crisis strike the government will not only be overwhelmed, but all of those preparations will be directed to Continuity of Government programs that include only top officials and essential personnel who will be responsible for maintaining order.
