19. It's going to come in waves
First off will be a defunding of government programs, say goodbye to the new deal and great society. There will be an increasing emphasis on local government, if you want to feed the hungry or do anything to promote the general welfare of the people, well, either local govt. does it or you go beg at whatever fundy hate factory is sanctioned in your sector.

The circuses will be allowed for a while to placate the masses, but electricity will become scarce, we will be walking more there won't be oil available except for the military and super rich.

We'll desend into psychosis attack our neighnors on pretense, get the shit kicked out of us by the rest of the world, fracture and fall apart.

The line about the dead being the lucky ones is about to come true.
