#2 Maduro is no Chavez. Shortages, blackouts, inflation, crime. A civil war is coming

#4 There will be no civil war, only low level strife, bitter tears, finger pointing and the occasional amateur assassination. Also looting, disease and a general super-charged entropic motion, ending in a honest to gawd old fashioned banana republic, with just enough oil to keep body and soul together.

#6 Of course, Obama is paying very close attention.

All he needs to do is to eliminate that pesky House of Representatives - or at least the Republicans, and he can rule by decree. A more compliant Congress can always rubber stamp his executive orders, and bureaucratic regulations if need be.

#7 Maduro has reached near the knee of the curve. Now all that remains is to go over the knee and drive the steep incline all the way to the bottom.
