We need economic chaos so Obama can justify to the American people the need to eliminate the congressional body and to replace it with a central authority figure who does not have to demean himself by having to negotiate with his ideological inferiors.
Once Americans become financially desperate, they will be ripe for agreeing to anything so long as there is a chance of regaining some degree of security in their lives. This method worked in czarist Russia and post WW! Germany, and it can work here too.
The reality is clear, if we agree to adopt Obama as our permanent ruler, he will then allow us to have some economic stability once again. Obama holds the cards, and we must surrender to his will soon or else we will face calamity.
