It is August 3rd, 2011. The deadline for extending the debt ceiling has come and passed, with no compromise on either side. The House's Tea Party
Caucus has successfully blocked the extension of the debt ceiling; their Cut, Cap and Balance Act, unpassable in the Democratic Senate, has done its
job and sabotaged Democratic efforts. It is Wednesday morning, and reports are coming in that the U.S. credit rating has been lowered to A. The
currency markets of the world shake and rattle; the financial stability of a world dependent on U.S. dollar reserves is at risk.
The leaders of the Tea Party come to the public to announce their success. Finally, an end to the welfare state! Social Security, Medicaid, food
stamps, Planned Parenthood, foreign aid; all of these programs and more now must be slashed and burned so that America can survive! The
announcements by Boehner, Cantor, Bachmann and Palin are welcomed with cheers across the nation. This is a great day to be an American!
It is August 4th, 2011. The President now addresses the nation. The United States Congress has failed to raise the ceiling on the debt limit. Now, the
nation will go into default; interest and inflation rates will skyrocket, the cost of living will be out of reach of the ordinary American, the
military will be unpaid and essential services will be shut down across the country. This is not acceptable; the House has failed in its duty to the
American people, it has stood in the way of the preservation of the American Way of Life. By Executive Order, the President is extending the debt
limit according to his original compromise plan. The Cut, Cap and Balance Act, never approved by the Senate, is overridden by this Order.
The response sweeps the continent; Tyrant! Dictator! The call to arms is given; now is the time for all patriots to rise up against a President who
has rejected the will of the people, who rules the country according to his own whims and disregards democracy! Militias and vigilantes and rebels
mobilize their resources, while the Tea Party leaders advise caution and discourage violence.
It is December 12th, 2011. For three months, explosions, shootings, and gas attacks have rocked America. The targets were not only federal government
buildings, but buildings and employees and members of both political parties; by discouraging violence, the Tea Party Caucus brought itself into the
crosshairs of the militias, as well. One month ago, as the waves of attacks intensified, the President had enacted a virtual martial law. Now, the
attacks are waning, and the majority of Americans are relieved. Now, opposition to the martial law and to the decrees of the President intensifies;
the Tea Party, reinvigorated by these assaults on liberty, grows in numbers.
The GOP in Congress, consistently blocked by the Senate in its legislative efforts, dedicates itself to preventing any Democratic initiatives from
succeeding. Congress grinds to a standstill, and the President is increasingly forced to rely on Executive Orders to break deadlocks one way or
another. He regularly informs the American people of the necessity of these Orders, of the breakdown of American democracy into bitter partisanship.
He implores them to support his efforts, and they, for the most part, accept his reasons. Congress is more unpopular than ever.
It is November 4th, 2012. A hard fought campaign has come to this, and it is not clear who will win. Backed by vast corporate funds, the President's
campaign has overwhelmed the opposition in media coverage, but its message rings hollow, over-produced. The economy has not recovered, nor has it
weakened. The Tea Party reminds the American public of this fact, and that the extraordinary, undemocratic measures taken by the President have done
little to help Americans and much to destroy the ancient institutions that protected their liberty. Polls suggest that the President will win
re-election, but it is not certain.
The election results come in; the Democrats have won even fewer seats in the House, the Tea Party a narrow majority in the Senate. The winner of the
Presidential race, by a small margin, is the Perry/Bachmann ticket. There is much rejoicing, and the Democrats go into a panic, sensing that their
time has gone.
It is January 20th, 2013. On his first day as President, Rick Perry issues a slew of Executive Orders. The previous President is repudiated, and many
of his Orders revoked. The new President issues the longest Executive Orders in history to this point, outlining the need for strong leadership tied
to strong patriotism. The debt limit is severely lowered, social programs are drastically cut, and income tax and Federal Reserve are abolished as
unconstitutional. These Orders are unanimously confirmed by the Republicans in Congress and the Senate, and are welcomed by the businessmen of the
Social Security, Medicaid, Interstate Highways, the Department of Motor Vehicles and many other government agencies, assets and departments are
privatized. Only the military remains as a significant public institution and expense, maintained by a new tax required of all citizens to provide for
the protection of the nation to which they owe their livelihoods. By Order, the military now enforces the new laws designed for the protection of the
homeland from domestic and alien threats. Police forces across the country, when not privatized, are subordinated to the National Guard, and the
National Guard to the Pentagon. The military it itself incorporated into Homeland Security, the only remaining Federal bureau. Morality, immigration,
and treason are strictly monitored and offenses are severely penalized.
By the end of his second term, President Perry is the most popular U.S. President of all time and the liberal elite have fled for other countries, or
else denounce their former convictions. Unopposed, the Tea Party unanimously repeals the 22nd Amendment, and President Perry is re-elected to a
further five terms. America becomes the home of utterly free enterprise, Christian morals, and security.
