I went with economic collapse. While its true that our pols got us in this mess, they won't be able to get us out when SHTF. We saw this with Katrina & Rita. The real tsunami heading our way is economic in nature. If countries like China, Japan, Saudi Arabia & S. Korea ever decide to switch to Euros, we're toast. They are funding our debt and keeping us afloat. Our country is one big economic bubble waiting to burst. Stock market, housing market, energy, etc. You name it and we're way hung out. While the pols got us here along with our own lack of responsibility, we all won't be in the same boat when it hits the fan. The pols will take care of themselves and the rest of us will be somewhere between Katrina & Rita & 9/11. Better hope you don't have any debt. However it will be a great time to buy just about anything for real cheap.
