This timeline is a spin off of Death of a Nation by Blackwater Nik/Psychic Octopus.

Death of a Nation: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=122066.0

I’m not going to update you on what happened in Death of a Nation because I think it’s a great read. I believe he was writing it from the first person perspective of  former Senator Russ Feingold. I will continue the story in first person but not only from the perspective of Feingold.


June 4th 2013 – From the diary of Roland Burris, resident of Chicago, former United States Senator

“It’s the worst its ever been here. I went to city hall today and was nearly killed along the way. I swear that some of the people I threw in jail as Attorney General are back on the streets –every one of them. The Chicago Police are no help after the Mayor was forced to strip more and more of their benefits, they need to feed their families and criminal organizations are paying them better than the city can afford. I have heard rumor of one criminal organization that has even been able to recruit doctors so they can give health care to their members. It’s become a fiefdom in a sense. This isn’t just a gang, it’s more like a mob. I don’t know their name –or what they call themselves –I wouldn’t be surprised if they have supporters in city hall or the state house already. I know they’re after me –they wrote threats on my mausoleum.
   Mayor Emanuel is not confident about the future of the city or country. I have never seen him look so scared, tired and helpless. There are food shortages in the country, but he has access to food so its not that. The stress of the job is getting to him. It shows how committed he is to the city that he’s still in the job after they killed members of his family. It’s a tantamount to the guards closest to him that he hasn’t gotten hit yet. Emanuel has to know that the Aldermen are trying to oust him. The whole city knows. He cut their benefits and pay entirely, and is barely paid himself.
   I learned from Jose, some Deputy in the Mayor’s staff, that Barack is hiding out somewhere. Biden’s pardon might have pardoned him legally but it didn’t help the anger that people feel towards him –I think wrongly..."

June 18th 2013 --- A moment with FBI Agent Luke Daria of Los Angeles, California
   
   ”Today the Republican Congress dismantled the remaining gun control laws…President Palin is expected to sign the bill calling it “a step towards  a society that our Founders wanted us to have…”

“Why did they do that daddy? Aren’t guns bad?”

“At this point, the repeal was more of a formality because gun laws are simply not enforced in most places anymore."

“What?"

“Because people want to protect themselves, honey. The government thinks they’re trying to help but they’re just making it worse…”

July 20th 2013From the Diary of former Senator Russ Feingold

   President Palin’s approval rating dropped into the 30’s for the first time this week as Social Security was formally fully dismantled. The government had not been paying for it since Republicans took control in 2010 as the government crashed, but now the work of President Roosevelt is truly undone. Unemployment is over 40% with the number of underemployed over 60%. Military recruitment is up because there is nowhere else to go but there’s little money left to pay for soldiers. The only liberal aspect left in government is Veterans health care benefits –and that’s only because Congress fears a military revolt if their benefits are slashed anymore.
   I truly think at this point people are more loyal to those around them than the idea of the United States.

July 21st 2013 – From the Diary of David Millband, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

   I spoke with President Palin today. I was hoping for good news, or reassurance but I had none. Churchill once wrote that when the United States entered the war he knew that the Allies would not lose –I feel the opposite way –the more the United States withdraws from the global stage the more I feel hopeless. The European Union exists on the books but not in the hearts of Europeans. This crisis has destroyed any chance we had at a European identity. President Palin told me today that the United States will announce its withdrawal from NATO later this week. Palin said that this withdrawal was due to security concerns in Eastern Europe that the United States did not want to be drawn into.

August 8th 2013 – A conversation between two Congressional Democrats

”We have a vote on the floor soon.”
“What is it?”
“A resolution affirming support for the President’s decision to quit NATO”
“She’s tearing this country to pieces. Why bother going to the vote? I don’t know why we do this anymore.”
“There’s so few of us. Someone needs to stand up and be the opposition to this.”
“Its hard to stand when your legs are cut from underneath you”
“We need to keep hoping that tomorrow will be better. It will get better.”
“No, it won’t get better. There are one hundred Democrats in the House, and twenty of them show up to vote if we’re lucky. Twenty.”
“Would you rather them govern on their own?”
“The party is dead, John. The party is dead.”

September 1st 2013 – From the Diary of former Senator Russ Feingold

   I know I have wrote before that urban areas are no longer safe but now I can say that they are not only safe but they are havens of crime. Roland Burris was killed yesterday by those who he once put in jail. He was killed walking out of city hall. No one reacted to the gunfire that rang out. It has become too normal in urban life. President Palin is truly an idiot or puts on a good show for the cameras –acting as if everything is okay.
   Democrats in Congress are in shambles. Few even show up to vote on the floor anymore. Speaker John Boehner was forced out of office in disgrace for opposing a more right Republican policy. An old friend who still works on the hill had told me Boehner knew the day was coming where the the far right would simply outnumber the moderates like him. A few days ago was that day. Congressman Pete King of Iowa is now the Speaker of the House –his election was personally blessed by President Palin. With Boehner’s resignation from Congress, 20 other Republicans resigned –all moderates.
   I am truly worried about the security of the few friends I have left on the Hill. DC, having military patrols constantly, is probably the safest place in the country but in these days trust is hard to find.
I find myself thinking about the election in 2012. Unfortunately there can be no grassroots movements to elect anyone with a real change of changing things for the country because people are more worried about their security, feeding their families and fighting to keep the roof over their heads. They have no interested in electing politicians who they still think are overfed and corrupt. They’re right.

September 23rd 2013 – Diary of Jane Leibowitz, an American Citizen

   I remember September 23rd 2013 like it was yesterday. I was only ten years old at the time but its just so vivid a memory. I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t remember what happened. M father was an outspoken liberal who had the respect of our local community. He even served in Congress until he resigned when he felt that the safety of our family was at stake. I was young and didn’t think anything of it. My father, even though he wasn’t working in Congress, used to stay out late and came back looking distressed. Our area wasn’t a bad area but one day my parents kept me home from school –and then another, and another. Soon, I wasn’t going to school anymore. Other than the boy next door, I never saw my friends. I liked him, so I didn’t mind.
   On September 23rd my father came home earlier than usual. I heard him say to my mother that “things were not going according to plan” and that “we might have to leave soon.” I remember seeing my mother drop to her knees as she heard this. I think she said something on the level of “they turned on us” and my father tried to console her saying that they had no choice to. I heard car doors slam and my father looked at me and said “Go upstairs honey, pack your bag –you’re going to your grandmothers tonight.” I was ten, so I was confused –I hadn’t seen my grandmother in a while so I was happy about that. I went up to my room, and heard a loud bang which I later learned was the door getting kicked in, followed by gunshots.
   I didn’t know what the loud sounds were so I ran back downstairs and saw a man aiming a gun at me –I must have startled him because he fired and it hit me in the leg. The pain was nothing like I’ve ever experienced before. I hope to never experience it again. After that everything went blurry but I do remember the men yelling and surrounding me and then it all went black.
   Who were they? A militaristic arm of the FBI meant to put down revolutionaries.

November 7, 2013 – From the Diary of Hillary R. Clinton

It has been one year since the American people decided to hand the fate of the United States back to the Republican Party. These aren’t the Republicans that  I grew up knowing –this isn’t the party of Nixon, Eisenhower, Roosevelt, Reagan or either of the Bushes. These are a new breed –a breed set on turning this nation into a theocracy while the economy crumbles. The President has all but declared the United States to be an isolationist Christian nation. Her incompetence is the only thing impressive about her.

I have been thinking about giving the Presidency one more run. One last try for the sake of the nation but I don’t know if I can bring myself to do it. Bill is sick, and health care is increasingly sparse even for us. Chelsea has the kids now and I know I would be putting them in danger if I angered the wrong people. We are no longer protected by the Secret Service which is something Bill and George went down to Congress together to oppose. Palin refused to meet with Bill, George and Joe. I don’t know where Barack was. I really thought he could turn the nation around. Who would have thought the results of a caucus in Iowa in 2008 would have led to this?

This seems like something out of "A HandMaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood. That book took place as demographic, ecological, social, economical and political decline created an environment where Christianist Jihadis from inside the military systematically 66'd Congress and created the Republic of Gilead, where the state micromanaged all the nation's spiritual, genetic and cultural processes. Eventually, there were armed uprisings by moderates and liberals and that eventually resulted in placing Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, Sterile Females, Homosexuals, Jews, Muslims, Seculars, Christian Heretics, the Mentally Retarded, Liberals and "Moderates" into "colonies" in the empty quarter of our country...namely for extermination or to work in toxic and nuclear waste facilities.

In a Epologue of the story, it was implied that the revolutionaries eventually won and created a politically fragmented and Multicultural world from the death throes of a dying nation.

November 30th 2013 – An excerpt from President Sarah Palin’s diariy

It is always a great time to be an American. The liberals and anarchists are rioting in the cities but we’ve taken steps to put them back in line and restore this Christian nation to its former glory. I knew it would be tough but we were moving there, we were on the right track. I talked to some of our European allies today and advised them to let their economies loose because it is the only way back to economic prosperity. Look at their socialist countries now –60% plus unemployment. Our unemployment would be lower if it wasn’t for the liberals rioting. They need to learn some work ethic and get back to work or we’ll have to convince them.

December 25th 2013 – An excerpt from Senator Russ Feingolds diary

There is no Christmas in America this year. I am more convinced than ever that if no one stops this Administration there  may be no America.

January 1st 2014 – An excerpt from John Mattews, an American Citizen’s diary

This is the coldest New Years day I can remember. I don’t mean cold like weather…but there was no celebrating when 2013 eneded and 2014 began. I’ve begun to lose hope…I think America has lost hope…

January 15th 2014 – AN excerpt from the diary of former President Barack Obama

If I said “It was the best of times; it was the worst of times” I’d be lying. This is the worst of times. I have not seen Michelle, Malia or Sasha since shortly after I was removed from office. Pardoned legally, but not by the public. Many blame me for this catastrophe and they want my head.
I have had limited contacts with those still loyal to me –and they are few. Congress made me out to be a traitor…and showing my face in public will not end well for me….The country is in shambles, people look fondly on the George W. Bush presidency…Palin is destroying the very fabric of America…
Three rogue Secret Service agents are all I have left. They sacrificed their families to continue protecting me…they were close to me and saw what really happened –they may be the only ones who did.

January 26th 2014 – A clip from a news broadcast

Today, Republican Governor Sam Brownback of Kansas called on President Palin and Congress to provide more subsidies to farm owners and to “make food suppliers exempt from federal taxes” citing global and national food shortages for what would be a radical policy…

…Today, Congress passed a law making English the official language of the United States…President Palin has been a chief supporter of the law and has said she will sign it into effect immediately…

…President Palin’s approval rating is estimated to be below 30%...

…I’m sorry –we have to interrupt –to tell our viewers that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has just been shot and killed outside of City Hall…

…Mayor Emanuel has been increasingly at odds with rising criminal organizations within Chicago and rumors said he was also at odds with the police force…


January 30th 2014 – From the diary of Roland Burris, resident of Chicago, former United States Senator
   
   The service for Mayor Emanuel was quick, but the room was packed with pale faces of not sorrow –but fear. Fear for themselves, fear for their loved ones and fear for the future of our once great city and this nation. I feel like Emanuel died a martyr, a martyr for what this nation once was. I hope that his death inspires people to challenge what is happening in America now but unfortunately I think fear is dominating over hope.
   No one will be prosecuted for what happened to the Mayor. The police are divided and loyal to whatever criminal organization they associate with. There are few amongst them that can afford to stand alone in this new order.
   I read today that some cities are without electricity or running water now like New York. I guess its worse there than this cesspool.


February 4th 2014 –From the diary of Anthony Romanelli  a Defense spending economist within Palin’s  Executive Office of Budget & Management

President Palin fired the last few people who had a critical viewpoint of her Administration’s policies. I don’t like just this go with the bandwagon mentality, but I’m getting paid –and if I tell  the real problems, I won’t be getting paid anymore. If she wasn’t so insecure…maybe things would be better…no its more than insecurity…
   I saw some projections today for our revenue stream going into 2017…the Administration is going to have to cut defense and drastically…its practically the only thing being funded right now…revenue is going to drop off…big time. They’re going to have to borrow to keep the military at this level…the exact thing that Palin is opposed to doing…and the exact thing that got us here…January 20, 2017 we will not be able to pay the Armed Forces of the United States.
   I need to keep this job…I can’t deliver the bad news to the Director…things need to look good, I have to make them look good…as long as I’m not working here on January 20, 2017…

February 3, 2014 – A conversation between two friends in Manhattan, NY

“They’ve literally closed the island. I was on the east river before and there are people jumping in the river trying to swim across. They’re not making it. The Coast Guard is stopping boats, but they’re not doing anything to the swimmers because out of 100, maybe 1 person will make it.”

“They can still afford to pay the Coast Guard?”

“Apparently”

“Is Tony still making pizza?”

“If you want to pay a fortune for one. He doesn’t got the supplies, he’s running on reserves.”

“Times are pretty bad then eh?”

“Yeah, they are.”

“You think we should try to get out?”

“No point, we’d die trying.”

“It’s a surprise we haven’t already”

February 6, 2014 – An unaired interview with Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York
“Sir, with Manhattan closed off due to –what your people are saying are health and safety concerns –how are you going to get these people’s votes when you run for reelection?”

“Well, I won’t be getting their votes because I won’t be on the ballot in November.”

“So you don’t care about the people in Manhattan?”

“No, I care –and I care a lot about them. Since I’m not running again, I can be honest –this President is forcing the hand of the state governments. The other day they completely ignored a request from Republican Governor Sam Brownback. Most of the Governor’s have been united behind some solutions that we have –but President Palin and the Congress won’t hear it. Few of us are willing to stand up to her because the few federal funds that we get –we need badly. Many states have military forces operating inside them. I stood up against her, or I tried –me and Governor Christie. Christie’s house is under military guard. It’s not a military guard, it’s a military threat to keep his mouth shut for “the good of the country” and “the good of the Union.” It’s a load of bullsh**t if you ask me.”

February 6, 2014 – A conversation between Secretary of Defense Rudy Giuliani and a subordinate.

“Sir, Governor Cuomo has claimed that we ordered the US military to guard Governor Christie’s house not to protect him but to threaten him.”

“I don’t know what Cuomo’s problem is, we have credible threats on most of the Governors in the nation, you tell him that. I need to take a call”

The subordinate leaves the room and Secretary Giuliani picks up the phone “Betsy, get me Chuck”

“Hello?”

“Chuck, its Rudy.”

“What can I do for you?”

“Up protection on Cuomo. Apparently he did an interview with the Albany affiliate of NBC.”

“We’ll handle it.”

“Great, thanks.”
February 23, 2014 – A phone call between Governor Dennis Daugaard of South Dakota and President Palin’s Chief of Staff

“Dennis, its been a long time.”

“Governor, to you –I didn’t know we were on a first name basis…”

“We’ve been on a first name basis since the inauguration, now how can I help you?”

“Look –a few of us want to see President Palin.”

“I thought you were calling about security concerns on Mt. Rushmore?”

“25 other Governor’s couldn’t get through about security concerns, I’m not sure why you took my call either”

“Its cause we’re friends Dennis…”

“Governor.”

“Governor, fine. I told the other Governor’s that the President has a tight schedule. You see the chaos in the country going on now. She’s out there leading and we need you to be out there leading as well.”

“Leading? Yeah, leading us down the path to ---“

“I’m busy, I can’t listen to your complaints all day. I can’t get you in with the President –“

“Your going to have a civil war on your hands if you don’t change your attitude to people like me.”

“What are you going to do? Abandon the party? The opposition exists in name only. You can’t do anything. You rely on us now, and we’re calling the shots.”

 “Tomorrow morning, South Dakota will be the first state to secede. The United States has abandoned us.”

February 24, 2014 – Breaking News Broadcast

“Governor Dennis Daugard of South Dakota was found dead in his home this morning. What looks like an attempted robbery has gone horribly wrong. Lieutenant Governor Matt Michels has been sworn in as Governor –and the suspects are still at large.”

“President Palin has called the death a terrible tragedy and said Governor Daugaard was a real American and a patriot.”

February 24, 2014 – A conversation between Mr & Mrs Chris Christie

“I can’t believe it. They ordered it. They actually did that.”

“You think so? They’re saying it’s a robbery.”

“Dennis was supposed to try to schedule a meeting with Palin last night. This is bad.”

“Can we do something?”

“Not if we don’t want to end up like them.”

“Should we leave?”

“I don’t know.”

March 18, 2014 – From the diary of California Governor Jerry Brown

I’ll read back on this, or maybe someone will read this once I’m gone and say this sounds cliché –but never has it been this bad.  I’ve been Governor three times and this is the only time I have felt unsafe. Insecure. The others are afraid too. Cuomo and Christie –two of the most vocal of the Administration have been basically silenced for now, Feingold is trying to scream but no one hears him.
   The worst part is, I know my fear is real. Dennis called me after he spoke with Palin’s office. He was going to submit a bill to secede from the Union in the morning. His mistake was telling the White House. The new South Dakota Governor looked pale as a ghost when he was sworn in. He knew what happened. We all did.
   As for California. She’s been better. Like the rest of the nation, the government barely functions. We’ve cut budgets and tried not to undermine the poor but the burden on the state is too high. The policies enacted by the Administration are only making things worse. I don’t know what the President sees when she drives through Washington DC, or when she flies around the country. Actually, I don’t know if she flies around the country.
   No sitting Governor is running for reelection. They’re all afraid. I’m thinking about it. Someone needs to stand up.

An  undated excerpt from former Senator Russ Feingold’s novel Death of a Nation

“I’ve gone back and read the diary of Governor Jerry Brown. He was a great American, and maybe one of the bravest in history. After the murder of South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugard he stood in front of camera and accused the President of ordering the murder. The President responded calling him an Alzheimer’s patient and accused him of just trying to stir up trouble. Palin even said he was disrespecting the family that he left behind.
   Governor Brown called me and said he was going to bring cameras and go to the front door of the White House, to expose the President for what she really was. He died the next day of a heart attack. I don’t think he was murdered, I think it was just his time. It was too much for him. People would immediately remember him as a wack job, because that’s what the White House wanted. History would exonerate him, but he wasn’t entirely right either.

I don't think  would have thought it was possible for a timeline to plausibly (and chillingly) make Dennis Daugaard a martyr.

If anyone is interested, I got the idea for the writing style from World War Z. Another dystopian novel with a very interesting part about Israel (and zombies).

Ehhh...that's no fun. It would be cool to have it be more complicated than a cut and dry war of succesion or coup. Perhaps there are suceeding states that are trying to restablish a new federal Goverment and perhaps there are various factions  at both the federal and state level. Perhaps there is an Occupier hipster militia at the Federal Level a string of both conservative and liberal succesor political entities and perhaps some tactical nukes are used. Basically think Shattered Union...but that its not just happening here.

I could think of four factions of the top of my head-

The Allied States of America- Conservative Anti-Palin succesor states in the Great Plains and upper South that are supported by desserting unpaid military elements.

The Occupy Wall Street Movement- Various Celebrities, Military and Business Leader and charismatic Left-Wing Politicians aligned themselves with a few Northeastern and Western States and cities to create a paralell nation. (State of Vermont, City of Salt Lake and the Free Republic of Cascadia were amongst the original members)


The Tea Party - Another group of economic and social NGOs that form a paralell patchwork across the nation to essential abolish the Federal Government and vest all powers in the remaining states or in various religious or economic institutions. 


The Federal Government (Those loyal to Presidient Palin).

I'd prefer a coup and a Coalition for National Salvation, but a civil war would be interesting... as long as all supported one USA. I just don't like secession.

A shameless agrarian collectivist with no respect for private property or individual rights.

His idea of freedom is - it is a bad thing and should be stopped at all costs.

Nathan-land.  As much fun as watching paint dry... literally.
