The Economic Cycle Research
Institute says a new recession is unavoidable. This probably means that the Republican nominee will be the next president.
It also means that we will likely be entering into a proto-revolutionary period. This gives fringe-dwellers their big chance to take over. The Libertarians have their act together -- "sacred scripture," organization, a robust media infrastructure -- while the left does not.
Thus, while I fear this new recession, I fear even more what comes next.
