A recent survey of 1,007 nationally representative Americans ages 18 and over suggests that most of us believe a doomsday scenario of some kind will occur in the next twenty five years.
With three million preppers in the U.S. getting ready for widespread disaster, gun sales sky rocketing, and retail precious metals purchases at unprecedented levels, the results of the survey performed by Kelton Research on behalf of National Geographic shouldnt be surprising.
Among other things, the survey asked respondents to choose which natural or man-made doomsday scenarios they believed are most likely to happen in the United States.

In response to this, in order to alleviate the job and economic situation, the government will continue to raise taxes, fines and fees, keep the borders open, make you pay for their medical care, housing, food stamps, social services and legally welcome in 1,000,000 more people per year from Muslim countries, and play global policeman, going into one country to another while looting the American treasure at home.
We got plenty of money and best printing presses that money can buy. What possible could go wrong?
I’m still in, but for several years now I’ve gone from an investor to a combination investor/trader.

This whole deal ain’t about nukes...
Well then obviously what we should do, is eliminate more American jobs and send more industry to a massive communist nation which is now becoming a ever-stronger rival nuclear superpower.
Sure. That should help.
Heh - poll was pre Palin. Maybe we should do it again.
I never thought of that “oil for gold” angle, but it makes perfect sense, the Fed misusing military power to keep the dollar propped up.
