Thing about a representative republic - sometimes your goofy second cousin get a representative too.
The Wyoming House has advanced a measure to study what the Cowboy State should do in the event of a total U.S. economic or political collapse, including possibly issuing its own currency, the Caspar Star-Tribune reports.I don't know. As a Southerner, if I was stuck in Wyoming, first on my list would be "shelter;" as in well insulated shelter. A boy would get cold in winter over there.
Under HB 85, the task force would study "potential impacts on Wyoming of, and preparation of the government and the people of Wyoming for, a potential disruption of the United States federal government including, but not limited to:"
(i) Potential effects of the rapid decline of the United States dollar and the ability to quickly provide an alternative currency;
(ii) Potential effects of a situation in which the federal government has no effective power or authority over the people of the United States;
(iii) Potential effects of a constitutional crisis;
(iv) Coordination between the governor's office, Wyoming national guard and any federal military in Wyoming;
(v) Potential effects of a disruption in food distribution;
(vi) Potential effects of a disruption in energy distribution.
Here is teh funnie,
But lawmakers today dropped earlier proposals in the so-called doomsday bill to study raising a standing army, instituting a draft and acquiring an aircraft carrier.Dude - get a map.
Hmmmm .... post apocolypse in Wyoming ... didn't they make that series about that?
