The task now is to relentlessly educate the American voters about the Republican Party's willingness to blow up the American and world economies in order to destroy Obama, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. The American Bund of the 1930's would have delighted in using such pyrotechnics if they had the power to do so in their day as would the leaders of the Confederacy decades before them.
