FEMA Camps Series Part 1 - Will They Happen In America?

FEMA camps, just reading the words invoke an immediate sense of foreboding and anger in many Americans. Call such emergency government facilities resettlement camps or refugee camps if you like, but the freedom-infringing will be just the same despite the text on the entrance sign. If following a guy who introduces himself by saying, “Hi, I’m from the government and I’m here to help” does not sound like a pleasant way to spend a few months or years, then you had better start preparing now.
A while back by husband Bobby was flipping channels and happened to land on Red Dawn (the original cult classic and not the cheesy remake) and we watched the scene where the townsfolk were herded in “re-education” camps by their new masters. Bobby turned to me and said, in all seriousness, “If you love me, you had better shoot me if I am ever ushered into a place like that.” Now, I love my best friend with my whole entire heart, and would surely rather use the expert target skills he taught me to rescue him than to put him out of his misery. Being captured and placed in a FEMA camp would be devastating, but feeling grateful that such a place existed and  voluntarily walking behind the barbed wire because you felt it was you only option for survival would be far worse.
