7. It would cause a second Great Depression.

 

Cacerolazos in every major city. Because people would be literally starving to death.

Their economic policies are doomed to fail.

results were.

10. I don't have to imagine it.

I live in South Carolina. It's run by Teabaggers, including our very corrupt, very brain-dead governor. I don't see the rest of the country being much different if the POTUS was a Teabagger.

how many Democrats continue to defend the NSA.

25. "If This Goes Onó" by Robert Heinlein describes it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_This_Goes_On%E2%80%94

As does "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood.

Both are horrifying predictions of what it would be like.

28. Ever play Grand Theft Auto?

That's what it would be like. Everything privatized, rampant corruption, guns everywhere, life has no value, money is everything.

It would be a horrible existence if those assholes had their way.
