Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree. But things have been bad especially 2008-9, have gotten better and will likely get even worse soon. Which is why I think we may have a chance to bring about substantial change in the USA by peaceful means. This is, essentially, what FDR did. And while there is no real spectre such as the Bolsheviks with which to frighten the elites, many are concerned about the percieved decline of US power and our decline in or loss of even critical defense manufacturing capabilities.
