Looks interesting and on topic for our ping list. The discussion of scenarios like this seems to have come from the darkest corners of the back net to front and center these days.
Gray State the movie trailer.
From the Web Site:
FREEDOM. STRENGTH. UNITY.
What is the plan for the Gray State Concept Trailer?
This film is an extremely ambitious independent project being shot in the Twin Cities, Minnesota. Following the many models of success film has for projects made outside of the Hollywood system, Gray State is seeking the funding it needs before plunging into production.
Gray State was conceived in November of 2010 by David Crowley and Danny Mason. The scale and nature of the material indicated that not only did they have an obligation to craft a human story out of the morass, but they had an obligation to tell it properly, far from the typical financial hangups that have become the convention for independent film. They began the process by first developing the narrative through months of slow revisions, and then in the summer of 2011, forged ahead with shooting a concept trailer.
Many films that have particular visuals or unique plotlines first invest in concept material that can be used as a tool to gather funding from interested parties. Gray State is no different. What WAS different was the unanticipated explosion of interest Gray State gathered from the local film community who participated in the shoot. This buzz spawned throughout the area via word of mouth, steam-rolling into an unprecedented movement of interest that has already reached national attention in some circuits, and this was before the concept trailer was even released.
The filmmakers have barely been able to control the hype, and now, over a year since the shoot, they are finally ready to release the trailer and begin the national campaign to gather the funding they need to push this extremely popular concept into a brilliant and commercially viable feature film.
Thousands of films, even the ones that reach production, never see the light of day through various failings of the filmmakers to market, promote, and distribute the films. Thousands more filmmakers sit on projects that are never even made, having no marketable tools to show that A) their film is a good idea, and B) that they can pull it off. The Gray State team fully intends to harness the amazing capabilities of the MN film community and prove that they can beat Hollywood at its own game - first, through showing a concept trailer.

It’s a good concept trailer.
Do I think that it could come true? The words possible and probable come to mind. Is it possible? Yes , it’s possible. Is it Probable? That’s a tricky one. Under certain circumstance, Yes it’s probable, but only under some really severe ones.
Do I think that the Government would use force on the citizens? Yes, I certainly do, they’ve already done it. Waco comes to mind right off.
Would the citizens fight back? Probably not in the beginning, most people only fight back when there’s nothing left to lose I’ve found. Or if they are highly motivated to save their lives or the lives of their loved ones.
So, let us pray that this sort of scenario never happens. Or most of us who survived will be in a Gulag wishing we had fought back while we still outnumbered the Bureaucrats and their faceless/anonymous minions.
They won't need to.
It would be a combination of unmanned drones for the strategic stuff which would only need a hand full of "loyal" soldiers and ChiComs under U.N. command for urban combat.
The Chinese would easily tolerate a one-to-one loss of their soldiers for every American and still have 700 million people left over.
I would say they are from the Ron Paul part of the political spectrum. They go right ahead and call Obama and Hillary traitors in the interview, so I wouldn't say they are typical lefties.
The blue helmets will make fine targets.
Please add me to your ping list.

I think we can be pretty sure that governments of the blue states, places like Oregon and Washington where I live, will kneel down to lick the boots of whoever the FedGov tyrant sends in as the appointed regent for our zone.
I don't imagine purple states, lets say Wisconson which currently has a lot of GOPers running it, but a ton of lefty Democratic trash in it - they won't do much better.
So you are left with Dixie, and the Empty Quarter states like North Dakota and Wyoming. And Texas. Might some of them act on a state level? How quickly would the Obama regime take out dissident lawmakers and Governors in places like Wyoming if they didn't like the direction that state was heading.
It's not like 1860 where you can sit safely 600 miles away from DC and calmly plot your secession in open session, with occassional letters informing FedGov what's happening. We live in world of Rapid Response.
So, I don't know. So far the states, even the red states have been gutless. I guess Montana held out on speed limits for a while. I'm not expecting much from any of them, sadly.
We who oppose them are counter-revolutionaries.
FedGov's standing army of 500K(and shrinking) isn't going to occupy any single state. Let alone the entire South. That would require an Army of 10 million. Do the math.
Serving the Republic isn’t the same a serving someone, but then I believe you know that. Are you feeling a bit surly today?
What if, after some sort of collapse than brings about hunger in America, Obama, or someone like him, arms inner city types who already hold a generational grudge against those whom they've been told to blame for their poverty? That army would make the SEIU look like the Red Cross.
The New Black Panthers writ large.
You can build for yourself a nice AR15 for under $600 now, if you get at it before little barry bastard commie’s thugocracy shuts it down in 2013 and 2014.
It hasn’t happened yet. It won’t happen as portrayed in various books and movies. And the outcome is far from certain.
Live free or die. Death is not the worst of evils...
Mack: Shame what this town’s come to.
Charley Waite: You could do something about it.
Mack: What? We’re freighters. Ralph here’s a shopkeeper.
Charley Waite: You’re men, ain’t you?
Mack: I didn’t raise my boys just to see ‘em killed.
Charley Waite: Well you may not know this, but there’s things that gnaw at a man worse than dying.

Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is.
