#1  When demographics become valid predictors of political outcomes, then democracy becomes theocracy and ethnocracy.s

Now where could I have read that before....?

#2  We have had a republic.

Egypt is heading toward a true democracy, where the majority of uneducated, unemployable, sheep ... herders will decide who rules, and how.

The Athenians had a democracy, until it devolved into mob rule - see V. D. Hanson. That's why our Founding Fathers gave us a Republic - for as long as we could keep it.

The Fiscal Cliff and Chinese Windfall

#1  Except the Chinese aren't buying. Rather the Treasury is printing more money to buy the bonds back. As the subsequent hyperinflation hits, those who have an income will all be in the 'one percent' tax bracket, in effect arriving at a flat tax structure.

#2  OTOH DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > GERMANY REPLACES CHINA AS US CURRENCY VILLAIN, along wid Hollad + EUZ-States due to their huge trade surpluses.

and

* SAME > BBC: US: CHINA NOT A "CURRENCY MANIPULATOR".

Before + during the 2012 POTUS Elections - hell yeah China is a currency manipulator;

After the 2012 POTUS Campaign - NOT SO MUCH = WHATS "CURRENCY MANIPULATION"???

In the US' defense, its apparently denying anyone, CHINA OR EUZ, ETAL. is a harmful "currency manipulator"???

* WORLD MILITARY FORUM > UK "ECONOMIST" MAGAZINE: MEXICAN MANUFACTURED GOODS TO REPLACE "MADE IN CHINA" IN THE US AFTER 2018, US IMMIGRATION TO MEXICO CONTINUES TO FAR OUTPACE THAT OF MEXICAN IMMIGRATION INTO TO THE US.

The Mexicans are coming, the Mexicans are coming.

versus

* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > POST-US WORLD BORN IN PHNOM PENH.

ARTIC > 15 Asian nations includ Australia, Russia to form "REGIONAL COMPREHENSIVE ECONOMIC PARTNERSHIP" [RCEP] WIDOUT THE USA. POTUS Obama fails to get support for his favored TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP [TTP] schema.

* CHINA DAILY FORUM, DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > US DOLLAR COLLAPSE: 7 OF 10 ASIAN COUNTRIES TO DROP US DOLLAR IN FAVOR OF CHINESE YUAN.

* WORLD MILITARY FORUM > ANALYSIS: US GLOBAL HEGEMONIC EMPIRE IS "UNSUSTAINABLE" AND COULD COLLAPSE WIDIN 5-10 YEARS [2017 - 2022]. LOSS OR DECLINE OF MAJOR US DOMESTIC INDUSTRIES TO FOREIGN-BASED MULTI-NATIONALS TO CONTINUE.
