I thought Wyoming WAS the plan ...

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.
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.
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.

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?
