    May 9 2012: Well. I doubt that this would even be a fair war. As Edward Long pointed out, a large group of people with money are on one side and the other side just has people who depend on the people with money.

    The Government side would obviously have weapons, intel, and money and the large businesses would have enough money to spend on defending themselves. The masses would obviously have people but that does not help if they are unarmed.

    So, even though I believe this is highly unlikely and more of a what-if question, I would fight for the clear cut winner, the large business and government.
