They have already divided us.
Everyday it seems that we are losing this once great country.
Somehow I can see this happening:
1) Purposely shut off all EBT cards. (Takes just two seconds at JP Morgan.)
2) Blame it on a cyber terrorist attack and use the crisis to institute harsh new police state controls over the internet. ("Never let a good crisis go to waste...")
3) Allow the "EBT riots" to unfold. Keep the National Guard away for long enough to let things get out of control and have scary footage broadcast on the evening news.
4) Once things are bad enough, announce Martial Law and bring in the troops to turn America's streets into a Nazi-style police state surveillance and enforcement system, complete with TSA-run checkpoints on all major roads.
