change but govt power REMAINS!!!
There are two kinds of government power, SR. Military and economic. The Democratic Party has used the latter in an attempt to "fundamentally change this nation". And we all know that they have been wildly successful.
Howerever, the "REMAINS" part of your supposition is questionable, happily so. Because our governemt is at the end of it's economic power rope. Bernacke's fiat money can only plug the unsustatinable government (vote-buying) subsidy dam for so long. Crash is a virtual fait accompli...Obama et al and their lies nws.
And when it does, all that will be left in the government power structure...will be the MILITARY. Or at least what can still be paid for and maintained of that. When push comes to shove, when a government that has bought votes with subsidies can no longer fulfill those expectations other than to forcibly confiscate whatever private wealth/assets are left...that's when the real *election* will begin...to determine the future ideological structure of this nation.
Most likely, the military will stay out, but for the support of the States and Local law enforcement entities. High population urban areas will go rogue - and just like with Katrina - will attempt to head to the more stable and relatively secure country side. Bringing their poison there. Which WILL NOT be tolerated. The locals will do exactly what they did on that Bridge down there on the West Bank. And that is where the military should and most likey would intervene and help in keeping the two groups apart. Hell, we've been doing that in Libya already...with Syria on the board.
Bottom line. All is not lost. In fact, all concerned are apt to learn a good lesson. It'll hurt...but well it should. Ideas and government that are sold on the basis of lies and manipulation of an ignorant and mis-guided electorate will only ensure division and 'wailing and gnashing of teeth'.
It's the Democratic Party that holds aspirations for Fascist/Socialist/Nazi control. It's the Tea Party that KNOWS it; and organizes to stand in the gate. How ironic, that the Socialist Authoritarians own plan (Cloward-Piven) will end up being THEIR undoing. The devil eats it's own. "I will take the wise in their own craftiness" (Biblical).
Stock up. Find good neighbors who you can trust. Strap in. The "Desperate Democrats" will do just what we see re Obama, Holder, IRS, DOJ, ObamaCare, etc. etc. Until the money runs out.
