  •  Means matter: if they break the govt & THEMSELVES (2+ / 0-)

    then the necessary rebuilding can take place without the Insane Clown Posse making a shambles of it.

    If they break only the govt, then 2014 will be epic battle for future of union, etc - and very possibly a prelude to a renewed civil war.  'Renewed' because their goals are, tho even more comprehensive, unchanged:  reinstitution of slavery in the US, rollback of women's suffrage, workers' rights, industrial regulation/accountability, und so endlich wieder.  if GOP "wins" - takes  '14 and '16, we will have slavery back in place ~5-10 years.  "Private" interests will have no trouble recreating their favorite parts of the antebellum South.  Not just a reversal of "Obamacare", a means-tested redefinition of "citizen"....

    •  The saving grace will be our environment. (0+ / 0-)

      They will only have an environment that makes it possible to govern for about 10-15 years.  Then things are going to become very chaotic and maintaining law will be next to impossible.
