The government has been shutdown since December 22nd 2018 and its not looking good. Just this morning the House voted on a bill to get things running again but it has not included wall funding which seems to be the main point.
Shock and Outrage
Our government has created a dependent class of people who know no life other than that which is bestowed by the government. Its a sad but serious reality for lots of Americans. Now that the window is closing on that stream of resources people are going to start becoming outraged.
When people realize that food is not going to come for free anymore things will get ugly. We saw something similar happen at a Walmart in 2014. A glitch in the system caused a total ransack of a Walmart who looked at the glitch as a chance to go on a spending spree.
This is just a peek into what people become when they have a long standing dependence that is threatened.
MUCH MUCH WORSE
Up until now we have only faced a one sided relationship to outrage and civil unrest. Typically a small section of the population gets upset and does some damage to others personal property. What we have not seen is the retaliation, thankfully. That could change if we see a wave of civil unrest in February.
In that instance, things get very, very bad. This is where we start hearing threats like MARTIAL LAW.
Hopefully we see some sort of resolution before February but you better be prepared to take action if the date passes and people start getting crazy. It could be a great time for a simple bugout rehearsal and a few days away from the masses. Take this time to sort things out and determine if and when it might be safe to come back home.
