Ok, this might be a surprise for some of you, but to me the ultimate SHTF is a martial law scenario. Here is why, its both a slow burn & a flash fire SHTF. Martial Law means the basic spirit of what makes America, America is gone. The Constitution is thrown away & with it rights as recognized by the government. Call what you like but governments are invented by men & men are corrupt & weak, myself included.
The lights work, the water runs in your sinks but you have no rights& well Katrina comes to mind but so does a lot of other things including having to defend myself against other Americans who think they are doing whats right I bring this up off a conversation I had with a friend.
