While I did look into Titor subjectively, I no longer can do that as I have concluded, rather quickly, that Titor is a false profit, if you will.
One reason for this is I don't believe time travel is or ever will be possible, time is what you make of it, an illusion, not something that can be harnessed or altered in any way other than what we are and always have been doing. Even if it was possible, I don't think the "Back to the Future" car would be the way to go about it.
Another reason is Titor is quite vague with his statments, he doesn't seem to have any detail, but only what a generic view of what occured.
Yet another, Titor stated "we should not eat meat of an animal which eats other dead animals" or something to that effect. That's in the bible, it's a sin to eat scavengers.
The biggest reason of all, though, is that he is telling us what is to happen. He states that we are a different "world line" and because of this, if anything is changed, it will have no affect on his origional world line. This is why he can tell us what's going to happen. However, he doesn't go into detail, because he doesn't want to mess up the natural order, he has said, right? Then why say anything at all? Wouldn't it be best not to interfere in any sense if you wish to keep the "natural order" ..?
Plus, he has gone back in time and returned to his true time before. This isn't possible as if he goes back in time, he would not be returning to his origional timeline, but instead a totally different future. It may appear the same, but the people are not the same. This would make time travel one-way and unproductive. Sending a man back in time to solve a problem will only solve that problem for another worldline. Someone from another wordline may not actually come into yours and solve the problem for you..you see?
Anyways, I doubt Titor is true, however his predictions do seem possible. I could see these events occuring, I always expected something of that nature to accur *around* that time frame. Logic, I spose. If these events do occur, it doesn't mean Titor has told the truth. Titor will always be a debateable subject no matter what. Excuses can always be made up, whether or not his story comes to life.

Besides, why cover it up? You are crushing these rebels, better to let them know that they infact don't stand a chance.[/QUOTE]
The Patriot Act allows for random searches without warrants,
random indefinite detainment with no charge,
Basically, a guy could smash your door down[...]you wouldn't be seen again for years.
Because of the Patriot Act, murder can be committed
I'd already have gotten a group of friends together and started trying to incite true revolution,
If what John Titor says happens to be true, well, I think I know his Farmer General.
contingency plan when he was younger about what to do if the government ever got drunk on it's own power.
he would continue to go out and look for people, only, with larger and larger groups,
and the GO would realise that he was no longer saving individual farmers from wrongful arrest - he was now, in a way, commanding an army.

He explained why he was so vague. Remember his reference to WWII? About Germany building the atom bomb all by themselves? And he did tell us that our timeline is different just because he is there.
For the record, I do believe in John Titor.
