Game change in Venezuela

Eventually, even the most orchestrated decline of a nation can reach a point there the game suddenly changes.

By this account, the Potemkin facades of normalcy in Venezuela have been pulled back, and the armed political thugs hiding behind them have emerged.

I eagerly await further reporting by other outlets on what's happening in Venezuela to clarify the current situation. I won't jump to conclusions based on the reporting of one blog.

However, I have a bigger question about our circumstances at home.

Will Americans take notice of events places like Venezuela, and understand we're experiencing a similar, orchestrated decline at home. It's just that the Venezuelans had a significant head start, and had a less affluent starting point.

Eventually, the cracks in America's facade will be too big to ignore or cover with excuses.

How then will we react?
