What will the new America look like?

It’s pretty obvious that we’re heading for a revolution in the next few months. But what will the new revolutionary government look like? I have a few guesses.

1-The most likely series of events is President Bush declaring himself emporer as American soldiers keep freedom fighters at bay. I see McCain as Brutus in this scenario. I truly believe he’d try to save the republic, even though his “country first” would have been a great slogan for Hitler.

Sadly, I’m guessing the republic wouldn’t last long in this scenario. America’s Augustus will be Sarah Palin. Don’t you think? It really will be a lot like the America we have now. But with less abortions, more hunting, and concentration camps for liberals. No hippies, at least.

2- Less likely would be a true communist takeover. I picture a junta led by Bernie Sanders, and featuring various NGO heads. Bernie would nationalize the banks and heavy industry, and round up rich people for re-education. Within weeks, fear and misery would be utterly destroyed. All Americans would have a good, interesting job. And it would mean something.

I’m rooting hard for this one.

3- The last scenario imagines that the state is simply smashed, and we’re left with an utter vacuum. Imagine Ron Paul and his crazy followers storming the capital and “liberating” everyone. They’d burn down the capitol and remove all trappings of government. This is sort of a worst case scenario. Nast, brutish, and short.

But hey, at least you’d feel ALIVE for a while!

And now: comics.
