      Just wanted to point out COD plan is to make sure the government survives ironically marshal law would take affect and generals would have absolute power. Democracy would be an after thought when institutions are built up again.

                  I could see why the government likes to hide things. Putting this up on the Internet is risky because sleeper cells or any anti American agents can watch this. Creepy

                      It was never intended that the president should run the government per se. also the presidency is an office, not a person and the only reason the president currently wields as much power and has as much protection is power projection.

                                  Got to love a well planned government.  So during this doomsday  I'm pretty sure nobody is going to give a shit who is in charge.  Oh and how the hell do you change oil on air force 1 if its flying around for weeks at a time ?

                                    America is such a baby. Always scared that someone is going to hurt them. Always preparing for and fantasising about the end of the world. While in reality America is responsible for millions of others actual deaths.

                                              Also we are not a democratic government. The UNITED STATES IS A REPUBLIC. No where in the pledge of allegiance does it mention democratic anything.
