Picture for a moment:
Its about halfway through the year 2013.
All U.S. military personel are currently deployed oversees to combat Iranian forces, and the draft is "forced" back into effect. China and Russia are
very quickly getting involved, and neither have declaired who's side they intend to support.
The U.S. economy has yet to recover from the market crash. Jobs have become very limited, and most require some form of specialization to qualify.
Food and supplies are skyrocketing in price due to the need overseas for the war effort and imports to the U.S. are almost completely cut off. Many
people can hardly afford to put food on the table. Most grocery stores no longer even stock fresh produce, and the canned goods are gone faster than
they can put them on the shelves. Even gasoline is no longer affordable for most individuals. Many families have come together in communal living
areas just to be able to survive. Public schooling has been closed until the unforseeable future, and most colleges shut down due to lack of
Crime runs rampant due to many cities cutting funding for police, fire, and medical in order to keep the government up and running. Civil unrest has
become so rampant, most are afraid to come outside unless the absolutely have to.
One night you turn off the usual talking heads on the T.V. and head to bed...
When you wake the next morning all is unusually quiet. You turn on the television and find the power is out. Out on the street you find the outtage
has effected the whole community. Not only the homes, but all businesses, radio stations no longer broadcast on the battery powered handheds, and most
vehicles won't even turn over.
You hear bits and pieces of conversations on the streets. People talking about a possible nuclear attack or EMP. There are rumors of some unknown
contract security coming the night before to claim all food and goods as "military" property. A few yards ahead of you an unmarked military-type
vehicle rolls through the streets broadcasting over a loud speaker. They give an address and general directions, and state it is all citizens civic
duty to leave their belonging behind and depart the city at once to head to that location. All those that do not will be concidered terrorists against
the state, and acted upon as such. Rumors from indivduals claiming to have already been there state people by the thousands are being loaded onto
trains and makeshift transport vehicles.
What do you do?
