Smuggling, traveling off road and cross country to avoid Gestapo checkpoints will become the norm. Small towns will be ghost towns during the day, a hub of activity at night.
LOL . . . LOL !
Okay, which IMF said that?
Oh, the organization. Never mind. I thought it was a senior Obama administration official.
