The election process will be co-opted and goonified.
The town hall meetings of this August will be goonified by the end of the month. The RATs think they have a winning "frame" by saying people in the meeting are "outsiders" and "agitators". The non-Acorn type.
A few more yelling sessions, even if it's the RATs doing the yelling, and they'll claim they are in danger from some domestic terrorist group, and demand federal marshals, or the 0bama Youth, to keep the peace and take down names and license plates.
