Will a man on horseback come to rule America?
I think the US will take longer, but a man-on-horseback can still happen in the US. Remember that virtually the only trusted institution in America is the military. The difference in America, as opposed to Europe, that the left isn’t going to get its chance, if at all, for quite some time. Obama trashed the left’s reputation since the hoi polloi think he’s left, and since the left refused to primary him, which I and a few others, told them they needed to do.
This generation of left leadership, with almost no exceptions, needs to be retired. They are almost always willing to sell out, and when not willing to, they are ineffectual twits who won’t do what’s necessary and worse, will make sure that no one else can.
So for the US, there is no “left gets its chance and IF it fails”, because the left already failed.
Also in the US there’s going to be one more (shitty) boom, based on fracking. The US will be a post-apocalyptic wasteland when it’s over, but in the meantime, enough people will be kept employed, and thinking they might make it, to keep the game together. How long that’ll go on, I don’t know. Stirling Newberry thinks its good for as much as 20 years. I think it’ll be less, just because these elites are so frickin’ incompetent. More on that in a post soon.
