    We won't get a Democrat at all. It will be time for the GOP to have its turn in the big chair. Thanks to Obama, the Dem brand will have been crapped up so badly that the Democrats will cease to be a viable political party and the 1% will turn to the GOP as the better vehicle to get what they want.

    And by then, the kinds of presidential candidates they dredge up will be outright fascists.

    Once they get power again, they'll never let it go, ever. Elections will be abolished and all those drones and indefinite-detention laws will be used to shut down the opposition. It's the only way they can stay in charge. Otherwise, no matter how gerrymandered they make the districts, or how many votes they cage, they'll eventually be kicked out of power once people realize how insane they are.

    So naked force and tyranny are the only way. And that's what we'll get.
