Comments: When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence
There's really no 'may' about it. If Obama loses, expect riots. If Obama wins, expect celebrations that look suspiciously like riots.

I was thinking it will happen right after Obama loses.

At some point, these flash 'social gatherings' will be considered a target rich environment.

It's gonna happen whatever the election outcome. Ain't no football game here, folks. Sex-Money-Power the prime movers and what ya gonna do when the food runs out, uh? Darwin rules.
After the crash it will be on a tribal level. Forget red states/blue states, so forth. The stadiums will be empty and nothing is sadder then wearing the jersey of the losing team. Para-militaries, gangs, the Mob, bikers, “patriots”, so forth, will have no need for ideology. An empty belly will be sufficient motive for members to devour whatever is in their path. Whatever. True impartiality, color-blind, equal opportunity prey. Darwin rules.
As the Spillers are fond of saying, “the sword is mightier than any pen ever yet invented”.

Food and money ran out in Europe and they just started a war or two and then elected more and more socialists. Nothing would give me hope like seeing signs there really is an opposition to post-modern socialism. An opposition is our only hope, but we just keep nominating Pomeranians and Poodles and then hoping they will be Dobermans and German Shepherds.
The Republicans have fought precisely one budget battle with Obama. Shockingly, they converted a "can't lose" poker hand into a pistol pointed at their own head this January. But because they aren't full-time Marxist agitators we feel happy things haven't gotten as bad as possible. We are busy replaying the GWB experiment. Anybody want to argue GWB made the country or the party better than when he found it?
Even if the GOP only wins 99 of the 100 Senate seats they still won't have enough courage to start dismantling the parasite state. A GOP majority just gives the RINOs more energy to moderate the GOP since there aren't enough DNC commielibs to stop the GOP. Get ready for "tyranny of the majority" 24/7 in every new story. Get ready for Lindsey Graham and John McCain telling you why we can't do this and can't do that. Nobody is more talented at screwing up than the GOP.
