So here's what we may see take place in America in the not too distant future. As has become very evident, there are many millions of former supporters of Mr. Obama, Democrats, progressives and independents, who are thoroughly disillusioned with his failures of leadership, his apparent ties to Wall Street, his escalating use of deadly killer drones, his kill list, his failures to investigate and prosecute torture and other crimes against humanity committed by the past administration. And there are those that believe that he has sold out his base supporters to become a charter member of the Washington Establishment. And many of these former supporters are very adamant that they will not vote for him again.

Now suppose those millions of Americans either stay home or go to the polls with that anger welled up within them. And let's suppose that, as a result, Mitt Romney becomes president and frustrated Americans also have voted the GOP into full control of the House and the Senate. Then suppose Romney, as we might expect, installs the GOP sociopathic agenda within his administration. If this comes to pass, then the American people will watch in mounting rage as they see the dismantling of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and numerous other very important government programs.

And then, as this sociopathic ideology is being put into action we will see the corporations of America fully unleash their massive power on this government and this society. Just think of what would happen if we had a Republican president, a Republican-controlled Congress and Supreme Court, together with the might and unlimited money of U.S. corporations backing their every effort.

So, at that point, what would be the probability that this nightmarish scenario would actually take place in America? Consider the fact that millions of Americans had already reached their boiling point and were desperately hoping for relief from a newly installed government and then, to their utter dismay, they suddenly became aware that the sociopaths in charge had every intention to make their lives even more miserable. How long do you think it would be before this society experienced an eruption of monumental dimensions?
