The country is going to end up Libertarian anyway, once we default on our debt. You have to look at it realistically ten years down the road. NO matter Obama borrows another $1 trillion a year to prop up the welfare programs and bankrupt state pensions, no matter the Repubs were to have borrowed another $1 trillion a year and started a war with Iran, the bottom line is we are paying $450 billion a year in interest on the debt NOW, and we have 80 million baby boomers now beginning to go onto the government big time, onto SS and Medicare, and that would cost us about $4 TRILLIION each year, and at the same time, the country is going majority race Hispanic and they have an average IQ of 83, and over 50 percent of Hispanic women are now having kids out of wedlock to get welfare, and 80 percent of black women do that, and add in those 80 million retiring baby boomers - how many of them will be collecting fat state or local pensions too? So you have the tax drain from hell on a bankrupt country in debt. That spells default and austerity measures to the max. It's about 2 years away the U.S. is going to collapse in total, the dollar is going to collapse and the dollar will no longer be the world's reserve currency, so we won't be able to print up money any longer. Add in cheap oil is gone, oil will sit at $150 a barrel forever when any country tries to grow, so there is NO way to ever grow the GDP. The real model is the end of growth, end of cheap oil, the end of globalization, the revamping of localization, dealing with global warming, the end of SS, Medicare, welfare and state and local government pensions. You would have to have a big working generation who is highly educated, a low amount of people on SS, Medicare and welfare in order to not collapse. The country is going to be Libertarian, just like Ron Paul says, in about two more years by having to default on the debt. Look at the picture of this nation ten years down the road, the aging population, old infrastructure, younger people being on welfare and in gangs and in the prisons. Look at the demographics, that tells the whole story. It's going to go third world. And the price of oil in the future is a really big part of it too.<quoted text>
Libertarianism is nice but will never appeal to the masses. The people who voted for Obama didn't want less government, they wanted MORE. The Libertarians will remain a fringe party unless they offer free drugs.
We will be spending maybe $2 trillion each year to deal with FEMA cleanups from extreme weather from global warming. There won't be ONE cent to spend on welfare or on government pensions nor on social security and medicare. It's a new world all the way around.
