MSM keeps hinting that it's coming. This one bothers me more than the others if it is true.

They would have to involve the military for something like that and the woke highway/State patrol.

Checkpoints are fixed targets and there are too many crossing points for the military to cover. The USA is too spread out for a traditional type of travel ban but geo-fencing newer vehicles via their on-board GPS may be one of the plans.

Didn't the new "infrastructure" bill have a provision for tracking every vehicle so they could be taxed by the miles driven?

The border patrol does the check points. They would be overwhelmed if the public in mass's decided to go out on the road. The early vehicles have no tracking abilities. Im thinking they would halt all gasoline production too stop all travel.

I live on the border between two states, one has jobs and the other has lower taxes. Guess how much commuter traffic we have twice a day. Border patrol would be a joke, there aren't enough uniforms for the number of people that it would take.

It sounds like Washington and Idaho But we get double taxed here if we work over there and live over here.

Same here. I switched jobs to work where I live and took a pay cut to save money. The lower taxes offset the pay cut.

My job is essential so I work all over the place in 4 States. It's time to retire early. I took no pay cuts I raise my price. They keep calling.

Where I live, there's multiple cases where a road runs the state line for miles and there's dozens of side streets on either side. That's just a couple of roads in one state. Good luck shutting it all down. Also, the Feds don't own these roads, they are state highways or city streets.

Now the Federal Interstate Highway System? Yeah, I could see them trying to shut that down.

in a dictator take over, they restrict movement, shut down communications, go for the guns, and then imprison the loudest protesters. People start disappearing.

People on both sides would start disappearing. It's attrition at that point and there are more of us than them.

Probably so. Sad but true.

Plant a garden

Yup. Got a bunch of mostly useless fruit trees in my back yard; one decent tangerine tree, a passable orange tree, and a grapefruit tree that's great if you like grapefruit.

The rest grow fruit I can't ID; well, there's one really old fig tree that no one touches.

Grow what you can, trade what you don't want.

Yup. Fall starts a nice growing season.

Fall is harvest season. I live and work in farm country, most of the corn grown around here is trucked to a processor just across the state line. We're talking 300+ trucks a day, every day. Add in all of the workers that cross state lines every workday and it would be impossible to run physical checkpoints.

No I don’t think so but who knows

It would be a great way to crater the economy so bad that it would never return to normal. If the goal is to replace it with digital currency tied to a social credit system, this would be a good way to start.
