(NaturalNews) You've probably seen the news all over the 'net: If Romney wins the election on November 6, many Obama supporters plan to riot in the streets
. A surprising number have announced their plans to "kill Romney
." Simultaneously, FEMA has announced it is preparing for an event involving "mass casualties."
Regardless of who you support in the coming election, the possibility of post-election riots is a reality. Here are 12 things you need to realize right now if you hope to stay safe should such an outcome unfold.#1) The riots will likely occur in the inner cities
. If at all possible, get out of the inner cities. In fact, you might want to think about moving out of the city altogether. Middle-class and upper-class suburbs will be safe, by the way. It's mostly the inner cities that are likely to riot.#2) The police will be almost instantly overwhelmed
. Local peace officers are ridiculously short-staffed in cities all across the country, largely due to budget cuts. They have very little capacity to deal with any real outbreak of riots, so don't expect calling 911 to have any impact at all.#3) One of the greatest risks from riots is FIRES
. Rioters love to set things on fire, as if burning down your own neighborhood is somehow an act of defiance against "The Man." Even worse, rioters tend to shoot firearms at firemen who are trying to put out the fires. This causes firemen to evacuate the scene, after which fires burn out of control and do a lot more damage than they would have otherwise caused. The risk of fires spreading out of control in the inner city is surprisingly high.#4) Innocent bystanders may be targeted with violence
. Don't be a "bystander" and you won't be targeted (because you're not around). The primary strategy is to simply not be in the wrong place at the wrong time.#5) Don't join in the riots
. Even if you're angry at the election
outcome, taking part in any sort of violent protest or riot is only asking for trouble. Even if you don't bring weapons to the riot, somebody from the other side very well might. You could easily find yourself arrested, beaten, pepper sprayed or even shot. STAY HOME
and find other outlets for expressing your frustration (such as tweeting all your friends to say how much the winner "sucks bad!" which is always a sign of astounding intelligence).#6) Think long and hard
about the possible ramifications of having an Obama
sign (or a Romney sign) in your yard or on your property. If your candidate wins, the haters on the other side of the aisle may take revenge on you and your property. You may wish to pull the signs on election day, before the results are publicized, in order to avoid being vandalized. Everybody has already made up their mind by that time anyway. Only a tiny percentage of the U.S. population is undecided even right now.#7) Stock up on at least a 72-hour supply of extra necessities
such as water, food, medicine and so on. Because if there are riots, there may be fires. And if there are fires, there may be infrastructure damage
which could cause a 3-day outage of power, water, food supplies and so on. Election day in the inner city is not the time to be running out of food in the pantry and needing to head to the grocery store.#8) If you're in an at-risk area, stock up on pepper spray and bear spray
. Pepper spray devices are not my favorite self defense item, but they can be surprisingly effective in crowd control. In fact, you can even buy "pepper spray grenades" online, which are really just canisters of pepper spray that you activate and then lob into, say, your apartment's entryway if it's under attack from a crowd of rioters. It will clear out the crazies in just a few seconds, giving you time to call 911.
Oh wait, 911 will be flooded with calls and police won't be responding, so you'd better have a revolver or some other self defense weapon at the ready just in case you're threatened with violence. This is the moment you'll wish you had something more powerful than pepper spray...#9) On election day, stay tuned in
to not just the mainstream media but also the alternative media
like Natural News
and Info Wars
. While the mainstream media may censor stories for political reasons, alternative news websites will be providing uncensored reporting
throughout the day.#10) Don't be stupid enough to actually make threats against anybody
on your Twitter feed or your Facebook page. The act of threatening a Presidential candidate is, of course, a felony crime, and those who make such threats on their own accounts should expect a visit from the U.S. Secret Service. Making such threats online only makes you look like a complete moron
, providing yet more evidence to the other side that "supporters of candidate X are all complete morons" and thus furthering the divide.
As you may have noticed, neither Obama nor Romney has a monopoly on moronic supporters, although from what I can see so far, Obama supporters seem to be making a lot more violent threats online so far.
For the record, I'm not voting for either one
. What you wish to do on election day is up to you, but I've decided to stop participating in the two-party fraud
which operates much like a gang. Neither the DemoCRIPS nor the ReBLOODlicans gets my vote.
Additional predictionsIf OBAMA wins:
• Expect gun sales to immediately surge to all-time highs.
• Watch for a revolt by small business owners who are fed up with healthcare mandates that are putting them out of business.
• Watch for a surge in gold prices and a sharp drop in the stock market.
• Get ready for mass arrests of government whistleblowers, journalists and critics who will be rounded up under the NDAA and sent to secret military prisons.
• Watch out for a massive increase in the signing of executive orders, where Obama will bypass Congress on everything from gun control to immigration.If ROMNEY wins:
• Expect to see inner city riots in cities like L.A., Detroit and possibly even Houston.
• Watch for a joint U.S.-Israeli military attack on Iran to happen before February.
• Watch for a temporary DROP in gold prices to occur as the business sector experiences a (short-lived) surge in confidence.
• Expect a temporary stock market surge, reflecting optimism in business and finance sectors.
No matter who wins...
... expect MORE banker bailouts, MORE expansion of big government, MORE prosecutions against farmers and home gardeners, MORE fiat currency creation by the Fed, MORE welfare handouts to the masses, MORE TSA roadside checkpoints, MORE abuses of civil liberties by the government and MORE erosion of the Bill of Rights, which is already largely ignored by the government.
