Governmental intervention

All the usual right-wing web sites are now out with a “Light out” warning about the devastating effect of an attack on our power grid,
whether by ISIS or other insane groups, claiming that Government has been totally inadequate preparing for such attacks, and is now woefully unprepared.
Right they are, the consequences would be immeasurable and potentially very destructive.
However, from extreme views on government having no business meddling in anything, – all of a sudden they now cry out for more intervention?
What would be the next? Asking for Government to prevent Democrats from taking over for a Republican party declining in popularity?
