I for one would pay good money to see these idiots try something that drastic. The end results would, while vicious overall be exactly what this country needs to learn a hard lesson about who we pick as leaders.

Venezuela's main power distribution network failed Tuesday, depriving 70 per cent of the country of electricity and creating traffic chaos in much of Caracas, which normally escapes such outages.
Electrical Energy Minister Jesse Chacon said on state TV that the failure was in the "backbone" that carries electricity from the Bajo Caroni region, where 60 per cent of Venezuela's power is generated.
President Nicolas Maduro said Tuesday night that 14 of 23 states lost power for much of the day and blamed "sabotage,"
The Dear Leader said sabotage, so
BTW, it wasn't sabotage, it was Obamanomic or Detroitonomics or whatever you want to call the anti-ecomonic science of the leftist fantasy world that thinks they can fundamentally change society even though they have never run a small business with 2 employees, let alone the insanely complex economy of over 310,000,000 that is intimately tied to the economy of roughly 6,900,000,000 other people doing and trading things that you have exactly zero relevant experience with.
The Venezeluans were going to fix their sub-par economy just like Obama is fixing our sub-par health care system and the results are the same, but neither will stop and cling desperately to their insane ideas as they force the people to pay for their fantasy through ever lower quality of services when they are actually available.
Think how many people are claiming that the Republicans sabotaged Obama's grand vision of health care. Right out of the playbook.
Slow steady heat until we are all cooked.
Large numbers are already dead in Detroit, Chicago, and how many will die that lose their health care, how many will die because they can't get a job, how many will die because they get cut to part time to avoid the Obamacare penalties, ...
A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of the country. The statesman wished to steer, while the politician was satisfied to drift.
