When the financial collapse hits for real - and its going to be bad - the criminal elements in this country will undoubtedly and quickly coalesce to form gangs of freebooters.
These will be tolerated to a degree by the government, as their lawlessness will give the rulers a pretext for enacting oppressive laws: voiding the Constitution and, among other things, confiscating privately owned guns. Taking people's guns away is probably THE lynchpin in the NWO plan. After that, all that follows will be much easier.
Instead of "bugging out" when the stuff finally hits the fan we'd do better stocking up on non-perishable foods; getting to know our neighbors and planning out how to defend our own "hoods" from those who will come: felons and/or Feds.
