    Right now, the plan is to tank the economy and destroy their opposition.

    Once they get back the Presidency and the Senate, they will quickly ram through a Shock-Doctrine set of policies, getting rid of every discretionary piece of spending, privatizing Social Security, and eliminating Medicaid. Forget the EPA. Forget the FDA, for that matter. Regulation will be extirpated from the role of government, as industries are permitted to "police themselves."

    Every single government program that can be outsourced, will be.

    Because a;; this 30 years of work has been about one thing:  turning all tax revenues possible over to corporate CEOs. It will be a direct funnel from taxpayers - the little people at the bottom - to the winners - those Plutocrats at the top.

    They don't care about the American people anymore. Their roles as "consumers" is gone with their spending power. Their votes will be as meaningless as those in autocratic "democracies." We're a useless population, good only for tax revenues. They have new, richer consumer populations in China and India.

    We'll probably be eliminated in a land war or a plague.

    Democracy *means* Anti-Plutocracy. Democrats, be true to your Self and win!
