LaRouche: The U.S. is Heading Towards Ungovernability
May 13 (LPAC)--In response to Senator Chuck Hagel's remarks on CBS's Face the Nation today, in which he stated that he would make a decision on whether to run as an independent for President by the late summer, Lyndon LaRouche made the following comments:
From where LaRouche sits, those who reorganized the presidential primaries to occur early in February of next year don't realize that this move is going to enrage the American voters and create an opening for independent candidacies which will mean an end to the party system and lead directly to the ungovernability of the United States of America.
With the primaries all scheduled in a concentrated time period early next year the candidates will be isolated from the people whom they will not be able to address directly. Instead, the candidates will end up squabbling among themselves. The non-debates will then merely enrage the voters.
Hagel, LaRouche said, will exploit this rage against the major political parties. The result of this process could then be to reduce the United States political system to a condition of ungovernability such as already exists in Great Britain, in Belgium, France, etc.
LaRouche continued that if these stupid jerks are crazy enough to accept the early primaries, the resulting rage on the part of the voters could lead to the circumstances under which an independent candidacy could be the deciding factor in the outcome of the general election. The Democratic and Republican parties are engaged in a process of breaking themselves up.
LaRouche concluded: Look at Europe. There, the existing parties are losing it with this kind of behavior. There is a pattern of impotent governments with no clear leading parties throughout all of Western and Central Europe. And now the same thing is in the process of occurring here in the U.S. as well.
