We are living in an historic era ("Re-elected," Nov. 7). We have read about the fall of other once great civilizations like the Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians. Now, we actually get to live it. We will see America, a once great country, become a government-controlled, third world socialist state. No shots will be fired, no army will invade. It will all happen from within. Unemployment, health care costs, and entitlement living will all increase. Civil unrest, demonstrations, and riots will be widespread.

Baltimore mayoral candidate Otis Rolley needed to get some attention and to boost his name recognition.
