Default may scare socialists, but it doesn't scare the Marxists. Marxists want a default to create a crisis opportunity. Then they can nationalize every corporation they blame for causing the default.

That’s true, and worth war-gaming.
My intuition says that in the post-default world, we can anticipate a fairly orderly restructuring, as in Eastern Europe post-communism.
Those living off of the taxpayer may riot for a brief period, but will lack the resources to do more, even with outside aid. See the Occupod movement. They will rapidly run out of resources, and will be busy looking for work and finding relatives to move in with.
Regardless, this is where we’re headed, like it or not.
That reminds me...
During his "energy" speech, Hussein had the ***** to say that the Republicans don't miss an opportunity to exploit political schadenfreude?"
Didn't the "progressives" invent the concept?
Has there been a Freeper thread on that? Did I miss it?
