I hope this never happens but if they keep grabbing guns, attacking preppers, calling patriot groups radical and the economy tanks, I think it is a possibility. But I do not think it will be within the next couple of years, they still have many things to get into place first.

I've been waiting for it to begin since 2008 and this thread just seems like all the others of years past.

Nothing can transpire until the right to bear arms is abolished. Expect more and more school, mall, and baby killings. It's the only thing that will cause people to emotionally respond with a "demand" that the government "do something". You're right, OP, it HAS begun.

I'm sorry but as long as I've been on ATS (10 years) these types of threads have been popping up. They're coming to get you, they're going to put you in fema camps, they're going to this do that bla bla bla.
All this does is scare people into the perpetual circle of fear and consumerism. I, for one, am tired of it. And I am glad to see that this thread doesn't have many flags.
It's coming, it's coming.....meanwhile it's years later and nothing has happened.

Contrary to popular belief in spite of the recent slide and sluggish economy, the USA is still the engine of gobal economic growth with Asia coming on strong and set to double in size in the next eight years.
The worst is OVER.
The time is ripe to start a new business and really get cracking.

Sorry, I disagree. In small town America where I live, nearly 1/2 of the businesses on main street downtown are shut down. They cannot afford to stay open. True value hardware store, in business for decades had to go. Many others. They are gone and no one can come back. Mom and pop shops, gone. But what is coming in the fall? Brand new super center walmart.

With regard to our own homes (another 2008 but worse and with different variables), I was told today that you can file declaration of homestead. This means if something happens and youncannotmpay your mortgage (and it is your only home), they can't make you leave. The lady who told me she did this did it when her husband lost work. I am checking it out "just in case".
