    Default Predictions for 2012

    Democrats, terrified of another Republican presidency, come out en mass to re-elect Barack Obama. Romney get the Republican nomination, but is defeated due to concerns over his commitment to reform. Low employment drives moderates to fury that they cannot find anyone to seize control of the U.S. economy from business leaders. The fuel for the fire is unemployment that still remains above 7%...

    Demonstrations against massive state government cuts, forced by Republican recalcitrance in Congress, are the catalyst for the reversal.

    Sarah Palin is defeated early on in Republican primaries, and is a part of the Tea Party movement's implosion. The movement loses momentum and faith due to half-hearted efforts by congressional Republicans to confront the public debt. The blocking of a states aid bill reduces strain on the debt, but threatens the ability of local governments to provide basic services. More than anything, the Tea Party's characteristic refusal to accept anything but complete obedience by its leaders leads to a series of poorly advised challenges to Republican incumbents, the failure of which discredits the movement as a political force.

    Democrats narrowly retake the House and hold the Senate. The new Congress is remarkable for the anti-corporate stance that is marked by New Age-type influences. It proceeds forward with a mandate to destroy national corporations via tough anti-oligarchy laws, making way for a new age of regional competition.

    The Democratic victory is a watershed moment in the history of American politics, and marks a passing over of Democratic values to Republican values as Republicans realize their values have become unelectable. Many moderate Republicans consider running as independents in 2014 to improve their chances of winning.

    Between defending Wikileaks and his idiot son who is now a senator, I think he'll have his hands full.

    Yeah right - Democrats are going to start destroying national corporations while the economy is still in shambles.

    I guess we'll have to "soldier on" since the world won't have ended after all.

    I don't think it's going to recover if they aren't beat, because it's lack of competition that is killing us. If these companies were actually scared of each other, they'd be hiring more, trying to make more aggressive moves. But they aren't. They aren't fighting each other. Massive companies like Time Warner never should have been allowed to form. The mergers never should have been permitted.

    I have contacts with left-wing academics who are chomping at the bit to put through anti-MNC legislation. Elizabeth Warren is the beginning of this berserker rampage, from what I understand. All that intentional community stuff... it's gonna be coming main stream pretty soon.

    Seriously dude, anarchy is on the march. Just ask your moderate left buds about it.

    You're such an optimist, TC! I hope you're right that Obama gets reelected and about the house and senate, but I bet I'm in the minority in this group.

    I've heard predictions that gas prices could reach as high as $5 in the US by 2012. Please tell me it's not true.
