The President (If it's still the same guy from before the blackout.) is an idiot is he has to use forces of arms to take back HIS country. A Populist uprising is simple, he says "Dude, I'm in charge, I've always been in charge, can you think of any reason why I shouldn't be in charge?"

It's worth remembering that Lincoln made the same argument but those pesky southeners had a different idea on who was in charge.

The larger question IMO is electricity - essentially nationwide communications and travel - the only thing that can bind a country as large and as diverse as the United States?

The Romans managed to control nearly a global empire without it.
