"In 'It’s Even Worse Than It Looks', congressional scholars Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein identify two overriding problems that have led Congress—and the United States—to the brink of institutional collapse."
It would seem scholars have already stated -- some might say "as prediction" -- what was predicted. Of course, I'm more interested in how ancient writers could, some 2000 years ago -- predict the effects of Climate Change; the Holocaust; and what might prove to be the fall of Washington.
We know, as fact, they got the first two correct -- even if evangelicals are in denial and are seeking the end of all life, when only a third was said to die-off.
The third, if my calculations are correct (and they worked so far) is due to happen between Sept 2015 and Oct 2016. Thus, even if they avoid the economic disaster of a Government Christmas Shutdown (evidence of the ongoing Republican "War on Christmas"), the will still have ten months to bring down Washington.
Closet Anti-Americans (known as Republicans) can then, proudly, come out and boast of their true nature.
