116. It is one reason I decided to support Obama
Because I think that when the hull finally starts collapsing, Obama will will react appropriately.

At that point, someone will have to stand up and tell the nation that the party that has gone on since the 1950's is over. Cheap energy is gone, the dollar is in the crapper, China and the EU have decoupled and we are on our own with little oil and no manufacturing base to speak of. Oh, and your thirty mile one way commute to work in an automobile? So 20th Century.

We will need someone who can translate
"the long emergency" into a speech, and not have the whole nation
start practicing 9mm relay races.

In short, we need someone who can stand like Roosevelt stood, like Churchill stood, and rallied their respective nation to a heroic struggle, and a hard won victory.

I believe Barack Obama is that person. And I believe that time may be before November.
