17. The Republicans will block the next Dem president...
...just as they obstructed Clinton from governing and Gore from taking office. The very system of govenment is broken...making it impossible for Democratic institutions to prevail.

- The Republican crusaders simply switch from offense to defense...depending on which side is in power at the time.

- Their success at watering down abortion laws will be followed by a complete ban in the next battle in the war of the classes.

- Now that they have the 'corporate' media on their makes it that much easier for them to privatize the government and turn it over to the corporations. At the same time...look for social programs to be 'defunded' or eliminated.
