That’s entirely possible. Look at Greece and, to a lesser degree, some of the other EU countries as they try to reverse the huge mistakes of the past (that they’ve tried warning us not to keep making). Look at the latest news stories of the Wisc. governor prepared to call out the National Guard if necessary, due to the escalating ire of the unions/govt. employees over his (courageous) deep budget cuts.
