Never say never.
What jmsfmtex wrote could certainly happen and given the current mass media treatment of the minority party placing all blame and national woes their direction the past 15 years or so, coupled with the current populace thought process or lack thereof... just, never say never or think it cannot happen here.
This is, afterall, a nation that once outlawed beer, for goodness sake.
Or for our kids sake.
Or because women finally got the votes sake.
I'm just sayin... keep your guard up.
