I didn't mark you up or down,

I didn't mark you up or down, let your post stand on its own merits.

"Does the United States government have control over food distribution within the US? Well, since it has all the guns and badges it controls everything."

Yes, and more particularly Obama has signed an executive order where under the name of "national defense" the government can seize essentially all resources, including food:

So if you stockpile food for your family, and perhaps a few neighbors that you know and trust, don't be surprised if "in a time of crisis" the government confiscates your food to distribute it as it sees fit, "for the better good", of course.

So my best advice is to be a prepper by all means, be ready for natural disasters, civil unrest, and hard times, but keep your head down and don't let the government know what you're doing.
