    But I don't know how successful it will be.  

    Agreed.  But reality is not their strong suit.  They really are just vandals.  Their goal is to tear things down.  And they've done a pretty good job of it.

    They did a pretty good job of it in the '20s, too.  All of these ideas should have been forever discredited by the spectacular failure of the Great Depression.  And yet, they continue to argue that it was all FDRs fault.  They're counting on us not to know better.

    Here's another lesson of history:  It's a bad idea to really piss off the American people.  (Hell, even Admiral Yamamoto had that one figured out.)  They may have to learn it the hard way.  FDR stopped the mobs in the 30s, and they never forgave him for it.  Maybe this time there'll be no way to stop the mobs.  Then we can be rid of these people.

    Maybe then they'll be happy.
