If by planning you mean looking forward to or hoping for a civil war I would have to say I do not believe that to be the case. If on the other hand you mean that they have contingency plans just in case it happens then yes. I believe that the Government has plans on how to react if the Canadians decide to domesticate polar bears and ride them across the border during an invasion.
Doesn't mean anyone believes it will happen. Or that they want it to happen. Only means we are prepared.
Should the Government wait till a disaster hits before deciding how to deal with it? Nothing wrong with having the polar bear guns ready. Once they ride across the border its to late to start planning. You don't want your children growing up speaking polar bear do you?
It's amazing the stuff that you can do in this country with little or no government interference. Forget J.T. Ready and his neo-Nazi associates. Yeah, he was on several watch lists, but he still had his guns. Instead, take a look at somebody like Darren Huff who was intent on taking over a Tennessee courthouse. State troopers stopped him. He was armed. He made his intent clear. Eventually, they let him go. Of course, Huff went through with his plans and was eventually arrested, tried, and convicted.
But really, stuff like this goes on and you think the government has me on a watch list because I have a couple of guns and a case of Beenie Weenies in the pantry? If they do, so what?

Keep in mind that most of those underground bunkers where built for the Cold War, not an upcoming Civil War.
They were built for a very real threat of nuclear war. And to keep the continuity of the US Government.

Well, Ill be in my lazy boy if they want me.......
I find it rather startling, that a lot of you guys find this idea so far fetched, and out of the realm of possibility.
You guys took the time to obtain a concealed weapon permit, train and train and train,,,, for what?
In case something as remote as an armed robbery, you would be prepared.
Why is it a stretch, for something like this to happen, yet some of you obsess to the point of ridiculous continuum with carrying a firearm for protection?
Everyone thinks the USofA must somehow be immune to anything of the sort, contrary to a lot of indications around the world that shows the powers that be wish it to be so.
Why does our government try to mainstream everything?
Political Correctness, is lurking around every corner, why.?
The United Nations is a farce.
Why does it exist, and recieve the money it does when it is useless?
Because it will be the rule of law around the world.

Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy." -- Ernest Benn
Extreme measures are indeed needed during extreme times. We must make sure that they are only used during those times. The Government if not closely watched will use those powers we have given it against us. Having a handy secret group of Judges that approve warrants would be scary if they used it against us instead of the terrorist it was meant for. But, how will we ever know for sure it isn't abused?
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
