I like your comments and agree that the best way to survive is to stay in your own home as long as possible.
The thing is I can't ever see a situation, apart from a massive exchange of nukes where society will break down to such a level that the government can't keep the Country running and order be reinstated.
During World War 2, my gandparents generation had bombs being dropped on them night after night, food shortages etc. They only had radios to inform them as to what was happening. S did HTF big style, yet life went on, people still went to work, they even carried on watching films in the cinema whilst raids were taking place. Maybe you are saying Americans are different and if your Country did get attacked, even from the inside, people will crumble into anarchy, killing each other over food and water. Maybe that is the result of having an armed society, I don't know.
i don't think they will crumble. They are very patriotic, regardless of who is in power.

You do realize humans survived long before electricity, modern medicine and running water right?

I completely agree with you and gave you a star! I don't want to survive if I must turn my back on the most innocent of all to do it. I've lived a very varied and full life so if I go tonight or tomorrow I've no complaints and I would risk my life for that of a child any day of the week. Who knows. Perhaps the child will pull through and I and my husband will pass, and my preparations will still not have been in vain.

But, don't the elite have the biggest and best buggout arrangements all ready in place? There are those deep underground affairs, or places carved out of mountains with everything that could be needed.
Won't they be the ones most likely to survive? Then again, unless they allow a certain amount of "grunts" in with them, to do the dirty work once they open the doors, their survival won't be extended much beyond the time in their bunkers.
I wonder if we here in Canada, and places like NZ, still living in our comfortable homes, will get live tv coverage of the SHTF down there in the good ol US of A? Some of you bring your cell phones and cameras along in your BOB so you can upload UTube stuff for the rest of us to enjoy.
I'll be watching.
