Reply to Carol Ring: My, my, so much gloom. Let me write a different scenario.
The national debt is over $17 trillion. We are saddled with an incompetent, ever-expanding, spendthrift government. The country will go bankrupt. The economy will be destroyed. No jobs. No welfare. Mobs will pour out of the cities looking for food. The countryside will be devastated. Riots. Thousands killed.
President Barack Obama will seize total control and become the tryant he longs to be. We will lose all freedoms, all private property and live in poverty, slaves in the totalitarian state the progressive elites envision. We will long for the days of capitalism, free enterprise, liberty and prosperity.
But, on the bright side, it will solve the problem of illegal immigration.
Meanwhile let's worry about man-made global warming (unproven), the dangers of fracking (maybe), etc. Right?
