Between the ongoing ( and apparently forgotten) sequester and the probable upcoming

refusal to raise the debt limit, how close are we to seeing the republican ideal of no government? If the press is paying any attention to either issue these days, I haven't seen it.

1. I don't think they realize

that without a government those who work together will succeed, and those who try and hoard and go it on their own will die. So liberals who are more than willing to help each other out would thrive in the end while conservatives who are extremely selfish would all be killed.

2. I don't think it will be that bad - but I am wondering how bad it will get.

The problem I see right now is that the consequences have been hidden. IIRC, defense contractors in Virginia start lay-ffs next month - maybe then people will sit up and take notice!

3. I'm talking long term

either the conservatives will die, or they will learn to work together with people which will make them far more liberal.
