    This is crunch time. We have the most radical left wing element of our nations history in the White House and Senate. We have the most fiscally conservative wing of the right in the Tea Party gaining power in the House and national local level politics.

    We are gripped by a financial reality in that America is on the verge of literal economic collapse. Food and fuel are soaring. And that trend is not reversing.

    Basically, this is political ideology apocalypse. Probably the nastiest politics we'll ever see in the next 2 years trying to unseat this tyrant in the White House.

    Who will win?

    I believe it will be the wealthy that win, as there are wealthy in both parties. The middle class will loose because the wealthy like to keep an exclusive club, and the middle class infringes upon that club. The working poor will continue to strugle and fall into the ranks of the truely poor, as the war between the wealthy and the middle class continue.

    I don't see any winners, it looks to me like the whole world is headed for a drastic depression, it's just a question of when. Both political parties are going to dig in and resist any important changes that negatively affect their constituents, whether it's really the best thing for the country or not. Everybody seems to have a sense of entitlement now, and until that changes the course we're on is pretty much set in stone.

    You think The President is Radical left? You are astoundingly ignorant of politics. The Tea party controls nothing as they are the right wing fringe.

    On the contrary, I think the worst is over. Unemployment is falling, sales and profits are up, business is expanding, tax revenues are up and most economist expect the recovery to continue through 2012. We have at least started to cut spending although there's a lot more to be done.

    I'm astounded by the number of ways you're completely wrong in this post.

    We have a status-quo corporate stooge President, and status-quo corporate stooges in both the House and the Senate. There's nothing radical or extreme about either Obama or the Tea Partiers.

    This will be the same as every other election cycle.
