Obamacare, the NSA spying scandal and national debt are all social ills that beset modern American life. Now, David John Marotta, a top financial adviser has says that indeed, the sky is falling - he says Americans should busy themselves with a "bug-out bag" that includes food, a gun and ammo to weather out the tough times.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Fearing certain fiscal and social disaster, Marotta, a Wall Street expert, financial adviser and Forbes contributor made an ominous comment on a recent note: "Firearms are the last item on the list, but they are on the list. There are some terrible people in this world. And you are safer when your trusted neighbors have firearms."

His memo is in regards to a possible "financial apocalypse." Marotta says that this won't necessarily dovetail into Armageddon. "There is the possibility of a precipitous decline, although a long and drawn out malaise is much more likely," the Charlottesville, Virginia-based president of Marotta Wealth Management says.

Marotta says he doesn't see the end of the world - but a far more difficult one.

"I, along with many other economists, agree with many of the concerns expressed in these dire warnings. The growing debt and deficit spending is a tax on those holding dollars. The devaluation in the U.S. dollar risks the dollar's status as the reserve currency of the world. Obamacare was the worst legislation in the past 75 years. Socialism is on the rise and the NSA really is abrogating vast portions of the Constitution. I don't disagree with their concerns," he wrote.

Marotta says that Americans should have a survival kit to take in case of a financial or natural disaster, filled with items that will help them stay alive for the first 72-hours of a crisis. Part of this list includes firearms.

"A bug-out bag is a good idea depending on where you live even if the emergency is just power outages, earthquakes and hurricanes. And with your preparedness you will be equipped to help others who might be in need," he wrote. "Be prepared. Especially because it keeps you from being scared."

He provided a list of items and even a link to bug-out bags on Amazon.

The Basic Survival Bag includes: FOX Tactical Field Operator's Action Pack (Black): 22" x 16" x 9." Food/Water: Two 2400 Calorie Food Bar Packets by SOS Food Lab-Made in USA/U.S. Coast Guard Approved.
