Excellent piece, and it recalls the shape the US was in at the beginning of WWI.  The history you fail to learn you are doomed to repeat, and this time around it will be much, much worse.

"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

What happens when the modern day Paul Reveres ride through the towns trying to warn the people of impending attack - but the townspeople close the curtains and go back to bed?

One very tired horse, a guy with laryngitis and a bunch of annoyed people who's self satisfied snooze was interrupted.
Pretty much the same as the last time, basically.
