Have you been watching the show "Revolution"? I see similarities with a near future USA...here's what I see at this point.

[quote:Anonymous Coward 6406905:MV8xOTk5NjMyXzMzNTkwMzA4X0Q3OEM4NEMx] [quote:Anonymous Coward 19791558:MV8xOTk5NjMyXzMzNTkwMjc0XzkwQjkzNDFB] Anyone remember the movie "escape from la" from the mid 90's? In the end they turn all the earths electricity off with a device. Ever since then I have always believed that scenario would take place eventually. Having just gone through 6 days with no power during Isaac let me tell ya. It was ok for the first few days because it was overcast and cooler. But once the sun came out and heated things up? By day 6 we were about to lose it. And we were well prepared...... Imagine it happening worldwide. Not being able to talk to family in other places. Not being able to even connect with your friends who live in the same town. That alone will freak people out. Let alone the immediate food problems involved with power outage. Last night about 20 minutes before revolution started our power went out. Came back on just in time to watch the show. I was a bit taken aback with the flag thing. I was thinking to myself. "oh we are going to go there are we?" So far i like the show. A little predictable to me, but most tv is these days. [/quote] No power does suck. We went without for 5 days after Hurricane Juan in 2003. It was tough. We had a 5 month old baby at the time. I could only imagine what it would have been like if it were winter and we had not prepared. [/quote]
It's only 2 shows in so far, but...
Power goes out...something we discuss a fair bit here because it could actually happen. Perhaps TPTB believe it will or know it will.
The "bad" Militia leader...looks like Barry O. Is a man of power, but not the ultimate power. Has a way of speaking to people that will make you empathize with him. However, he has a very darkside as well. He works for a real bad dude (Munro). They hate America. Your not even allowed to speak of America, own an American flag, own a firearm, all these things that Americans have always enjoyed...gone...Slavery has been reintroduced. Incarceration without cause.
Now just for a second imagine Sharia law taking hold of the U.S., probably sound like this eh?
Takes place in Illinois.
I'm sure there is more to add, but that's what I have so far.
