What is most frightening about the political left is that they seem to have no sense of the tragedy of the human condition. All problems seem to them to be due to other people not being as wise or as noble as they are.
Famously liberal gasbag Gore Vidal is predicting that a military dictatorship is in America's future. I've always considered Vidal to be somewhat of a fringe element on the left. However, for someone who could probably be counted on to be a fervent Obama supporter, it is disturbing to hear Vidal predicting that only a military dictatorship can hold things together now. This is not inconsistent with information I have received from some credible sources about population control efforts in the event of a national, or even regional, crisis. Although Vidal can be reliably counted on to bash Republicans and conservatives, his commentary on the Obama leftists is somewhat enlightening. Vidal views the Obamites as inexperienced and unable to effectively lead. Not good news in these trying times. A short article at Newsmax, but worth the read to get the view of an unabashed liberal on the current administration.
