Martial law is a terrifying thing to experience. Imagine waking up to find the world in chaos. Looting and riots spread like wildfire, while law enforcement guns down civilians in the streets. The power grid is down, and there’s no telling if it’s ever coming back. Rape and murder spiral out of control as society collapses around you. Everything you’ve come to rely on is gone due to martial law.
Do you have what it takes to protect your family from the scum of humanity?

How Possible Is Martial Law?
The current political divide between conservatives and liberals threatens to destabilize America. Corporations and corrupt government have brought us to the brink of class war. The mistrust of police and authority causes riots in the streets and only gets worse as the number of cops and civilian deaths increase. Our monetary system is connected to the rest of the world, but, just like England, who’s to say that our government won’t pass a law that sends the U.S. economy into the Stone Age? What about the possibility of a coup d'etat?
Even if none of these things come to pass, the fact is, the bubble we currently live in cannot hold out forever. With the retirement of the baby boomer generation, America is going to find itself financially bankrupt. When that day comes, you’re going to find yourself in the middle of a situation you can’t control. Civil courts will fail, and military courts will take the reins. Regardless of how much you have prepared for it, you have to make some tough decisions. If you want to survive, you need a plan. So what is the first thing you should do?

Stock Up on Food and Water (Well Ahead of Time)
Just like in a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, store shelves will empty in a matter of hours! Make sure you have plenty of food and water stocked and stored long at all times! (At least 3 days' worth of food should always be on hand.) Water is particularly valuable as it is the first thing that will run out of in an emergency.
Following a disaster, your regular water source could be cut off or contaminated, so it is vital that you secure as much clean water as possible. The average person needs about 1 gallon of water a day for drinking and an additional 2 gallons for proper sanitation. You need twice as much if you live in a hot climate. You won’t have time to gather supplies in an emergency and everyone else will have the same idea, so again, stock up long before a disaster hits!
If you do find yourself caught without something you know you’ll need, I recommend sticking to gas stations and avoiding large stores like Walmart. Remember, credit card machines may crash during a crisis, so it’s always a good idea to carry cash… and prepare to pay extra for supplies (the law of supply and demand goes into overdrive in a crisis.)
If it’s too dangerous to leave your house, fill up your bathtub to use as drinking water later. Once you have as much food and water as possible, its best to hunker down and play it safe until you can assess the situation.
Avoid Authority at All Costs
With riots and looting happening around you, the last thing you want to do is confront police or the military. In this stage, civil liberties will play second fiddle to whatever Congress decides the Constitution should be. Unless your life is directly at risk, you should stay indoors and avoid any situation where you might deal with by authorities. Once the violence starts, you’re just as likely to get shot down in the street as the rioters next to you.
The authorities are only concerned with their own safety and won’t think twice about murdering you if they think their lives are in danger. Public safety becomes a secondary objective. The president might even completely legalize something like this. Police and the National Guard have been ready for the martial law since 9/11 and are trained to view all civilians as the enemy. If possible, avoid them at all cost. If you’re held at gunpoint by the authorities, do whatever they say. Any sign of resistance will get you killed.
The best thing you can do in a crisis situation is to know exactly what’s happening around you. In today’s digital age, we have access to the latest information at the touch of a button, but we take for granted how much we rely on it. American citizens have relied on fast, immediate communications that when civil unrest becomes commonplace, we would be at a disadvantage.
If the government has resorted to martial law, there is a good chance they will shut off cell towers to try and contain the situation. Television might also be useless if the power grid goes down. Your best bet is a wind-up radio to pick up AM and FM stations. This will become increasingly important if you decide you have to leave your house and flee the city.
Should I Stay or Should I Go?
This is the most important question you have to ask yourself. The safest place for you and your family is inside your house with the lights out. But what if you can no longer stay in your home? Running out of food or water is one of the worst things that can happen to you under martial law.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to make a plan. The National Guard military forces are trained to respond to these kinds of situations in a very fast, very calculated manner. Know how many days you can stay in one spot, and have a backup location ready in case you have to leave in a hurry. Just because it’s your home doesn’t mean you have to die for it. Always be prepared to leave.
