The Second Revolution by YNot1989 The Second Revolution by YNot1989
In the 8th year of the Great Deluge and the fourth year of the Famine and Water Crisis, the Coalition Party finally completed their promise to issue a series of reforms to the US Government with the blessing of President Dreager. These reforms while hailed by the media as well needed changes to the US Government did little to solve the fact that the American people were bankrupt and starving.

The same year the Waders March that had effectively halted business in the US by forcing the US Chamber of Commerce and the Stock Market to move to Tacoma, marched on Washington to riot over the President Dreager's inaction on the refugee crisis. This resulted in the DC Riot Police, under request of the US Speaker of the House (leader of the Coalition Party) firing on the crowd killing 50 people.

In this moment riots break out across the country and the act is hailed as the Coalition's Betrayal. Police are attacked in almost every state, and in many cases the National Guard refuses to put down the mobs. With the US Military spread around the world, and the National Guard's loyalty in question, President Dreager has the Secret Service escort him Camp David in the fear that the riots in DC may endanger his life. Disguised as a civilian, he is captured by revolutionaries at Reagan International Airport. This act leads to some of the more radical revolutionaries claiming that this act is akin to the President resigning from office and calls for a second constitutional convention to establish a new government.

What follows is the effective collapse of the US Government and the spread of revolutionary action across the country (the regions directly controlled by revolutionaries are in red). Revolutionaries beginning capturing business and religious leaders and hold tribunals that almost always result in a death sentence by lethal injection. While this method came to define revolution, more people were killed with guns in this period than with formal executions.

The majority of the country is officially under the control of the Assembly of the People of the United States (the quasi parliament established by the revolutionary constitutional convention) which in an attempt to solve the famine has placed government price controls on food as a form of rationing, which fails miserably.

With the US in the middle of violent revolution the European Union, some of the few countries that have managed to survive the Deluge with any degree of stability, deploys EUROFOR to the US Capitol and the surrounding metropolitan area to secure key financial interests and put down the revolutionaries. In Southern California, the Baja Narco State has de facto control of much of the region via patrols of Drug Squads, and the domestic attacks on police forces.

Around the world the US military, now with no command structure to report to, is desperately trying to stay alive, and in many cases troops are simply commandeering aircraft and returning home without orders from commanders. The only exception to this comes from troops loyal to USAF Colonel Andrew Vergara, who has control of most of the Air Force's unmanned arsenal and has led a Military Exodus back to the US.

Canada annexes US. Most of the former is probably unscathed anyway.

Wait, how does Baja get it's narcotics, with the ecological changes to destroy the crops? Shouldn't the San Diegan military be taking care of them anyways? How did Mexico seize Belize when their seems to be no land connection?

Belize was actually a mistake, as for Baja I'll simply say that they have their ways.

And why is Puerto Rico revolting? They fearing population flooding from American lands rather than the other islands?

No, its really just a continuation of the Puerto Rico independence movement. Nationalists tend to be the first to make waves during times of crisis.

Disguised as a civilian? Aren't all American Presidents civilians?

Yes, so perhaps it would've been better if I just said, "in disguise."

They didn't join anyone, they're just in full scale rebellion.

No way, the 6 New England states are the most European of the US and they are quite afraid of the other 44. They should at least join the Dominion of Canada...

High population of disenfranchised citizens (in this case climate refugees) + economic collapse + small population of wealthy elite + food shortage = Revolution.

By your logic when France was experiencing these symptoms, Brittany would have joined British, or Occitania would have joined Spain. People tend to have a greater loyalty to national identity than most would realize.

Very true. Your logic has moved me.
Well, if this ever does happen then call me an Expat 'cause I'm moving to England!

I can see the EU surviving. I mean, they have the German states, France and even Switzerland to fall back on.

And it seems that the Canadians are still suspiciously quiet...

Wow... things really went to Hell there... o.o

I'm surprised that the EU managed to stay alive without greater troubles though.

Also, what kind of revolutionaries are these? Socialists?

There are a number of different revolutionary groups with varying ideologies but they all have one thing in common; they're tired of the richest 1% having highjacked the country, and they are tired of the government that enables them. Some are socialists, some are libertarians, but that's all that unites them.
