It took a great depression to wake the sheeple up two generations ago
It will take at least that to make it happen again. There is nothing unpatriotic about hoping the disastrous effects of the Repug dominance occur quickly so we can get it over with.

In fact, the greater the pain in the short term, the better the chance we can get our country back on the road to peace and prosperity for all--in the shortest amount of time.

Otherwise we are looking at a slow death of liberty and the middle class.
