    These sound like extremely dangerous and hateful people.  It's interesting to note that these right wing "militants" who eschew the authority of the Federal Guvurnment in favor of their own "laws" will normally do a flip-flop on their antiauthoritarianism as soon as they are in control of the laws.  Thus, after they've made abortion illegal under penalty of death, they will not tolerate any state's efforts to legalize abortion.  

    Once in power, it's also reasonable to suspect that their positions and ideas would suddenly radicalize since they don't have to compete for public approval.  

    In the event of a US economic meltdown, these are the sorts that I figure will gain power.  We got lucky last time with FDR, but the current climate of ignorance and fear favors the rise of a religious demagogue - one that makes Bush look like a secular zealot in comparison.
