(Newser) – For the burgeoning ranks of political paranoids, a scenario in which President Obama dissolves the Constitution, bans guns and drags the US into a union with Mexico and Canada seems not all that far-fetched. Now, thanks to some Ron Paul supporters, you can prepare for 2011 (yep, that soon!) with an online game called United States of Earth.

In the game, “patriots” fight to take back the country from Obama—who’s declared himself the “Legendary Lost Imam”—and the Cong, leftovers of the Democrat-controlled Congress. Glenn Beck is dead, but with Michelle Malkin firing up the troops with a second Declaration of Independence, victory is at hand. So why, libertarians, make Obama the target? “For the most publicity,” one tells Mother Jones. “There's a lot going on with Fox, the White House, and we wanted to capitalize on that.”
