The coming American Apocolypse, brought to you by the GOP with a little help from the Dems

MarketWatch takes a deeper dive into Stockman's recent Op-Ed in the NY Times, and provides a little more insight.

There is a difference between nihilistic thinking, and realism, and this is it:

First, that most Americans, 300 million, are helpless, will do nothing, sit in the bleachers passively watching this deadly partisan game like it's just another TV reality show.

Second, that, unfortunately, politicians are so deep-in-the-pockets of the Wall Street conspiracy that controls Washington they are helpless and blind.

And third, there's a depressing sense that Stockman will be dismissed as a traitor, his message lost in the 24/7 news cycle ... until the final apocalyptic event, an unpredictable black swan triggers another, bigger global meltdown, followed by a long Great Depression II and a historic class war.

So be prepared, it will hit soon, when you least expect.
