benjammin, When I went though hurricane Andrew it wiped a very large area. I saw many standing together and helping everyone and this lasted more then a year. In my area it was not as bad as the center. In my area we all got together and helped each others for three months. It didn’t matter if you were left or right or whatever everyone helped each other.
I think that in a SHTF there will be some of that but when food ends all will turn to bad things. Many that I talk to here do not trust the government even the left wingers are turning, they believe they have been lied to.
