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

When the grid goes down, every single nuclear reactor will simultaneous melt down within a matter of days. There will be no people 15 years after the blackout.... [/quote] NOt true. They have enough back up power to power down. Only if the suffer damage (Fuku) would this be a problem. [/quote] yes but not enough to keep the spent fuel cool if the grid stays down... [/quote] hmmm...interesting. There MUST be a backup plan. They would not risk the US over an extended power outage. [/quote] Laughing. No - the plan was to temporatily store fuel rods on site until the permenate storage facility was ready. 40 years later, no permmenate storage facility. If you're worried about CME / EMP grid failure, dont live downwind of a Nuke plant. (And your comment "THEY" would not risk this - "THEY" don't live downwind from nuke plants, so you are technicaly correct). [/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.
