I am really hoping we can have an intelligent debate about this topic as I wrestle with it myself from time to time. Easy scenario, some sort of natural disaster be it a mudslide, forest fire, tsunami, flood, hurricane, tropical cyclone or tornado is headed your way. Or, you live in an area where they have detected a highly infectious strain of flu, ebola, small pox or whatever nasty infectious bug. Some government agency, be it Federal, state, county or city, comes to your door and asks you to leave the area voluntarily for you and your families safety. You've got 15 minutes to pack and go. Lets assume that all the people who normally reside at the residence are already home. Do you heed their advice? Does it mean more coming from a different tier of Government i.e., you'd listen to the Fed or State, but not the local or vice-versa?
