The government is already shot - an obvious kleptocracy.
The government (verb) of the country is proving to be untenable.

Deep divides in culture, with the right an obvious but desperate minority, will result in domestic uprising.
Just today, they arrested some nut in a otherwise quiet community near me for road rage, including racial slurs (the vic was an African-American with little kids in his car). They found a fully loaded AK47 in his car - ready to fire. He had a US Navy plate on his car. They're out there folks and they will go off eventually. This guy is driving around the same streets as you and me. Factor in the smaller safety net - coming soon to a mailbox near you - and you have issues.

The catalyst will probably be from outside the country - either and Act of War or a sustained terrorist attack. The banks will close, money stops, and the proverbial shit hits the fan. There's little "loyalty" anymore to anyone in government since they quit working for us. I don't see a happy ending here. I only wonder what role the military will play when the music stops.
