I think the dream is prophetic, too. Interesting correlates, liplock, re Obama and Great Lakes. I am thinkin the Statue of Liberty down in the water (but not out) is the current assault on our freedoms/liberties here in the US or maybe just our economic collapse.
I like your idea about 3 possible futures, but my first impressions are that it is an indication of time (like a date on a calendar). ALSO, the description of the man/stars sounds like Orion's Belt doesn't it? A storm brewing from the west -- cld just be political (China maybe getting ready to pounce - or their current fascination w/weather warfare . . .) OR
the storm which is the fulcrum/pivot point in the upcoming changes/cleansing of earth energies. Did the storm look odd at all -- a lot of people see green -- was the lighting odd for a storm, nappy4life? The storm I refer to will be a geomagnetic storm triggered by intense solar flares. It is the storm the lady of Fatima refers to as precipitating the 3 days of darkness.
From "Say a Prayer Tonight" (all rights reserved)
the sky grew dark w/the sound of the wind
deep in my heart -- a voice within
said the time is now
it will soon begin
better go inside
and in the candle light
say a prayer tonight
the sound of the wind was like a roaring train
as the rain crashed down on my window pane
a man without faith wld surely go insane
on this night of nights . . .
