The only silver lining to all of this is that the system will collapse long before the liberals will have a chance to create their perfect world of citizen-serfs toiling away for the greater glory of the collective.

What i'm curious to experience is how liberals broach the subject of a VAT. They either have to say the republicans got us in so much trouble with the overspending (wars, tax cuts, medicare D) that we need a new temporary tax to pay for it......and then make it permanent, or they have to exempt a large part of the population by having some tax treatment where a certain income level is exempted but it isn't indexed to inflation so eventually it gets most everyone, like with the alternative minimum tax. Whatever they decide i guarantee the media hails it as being fiscally responsible.
