Prediction: Le Pen will be the next French president. I type this with 95% certainty. If she is does not win this time and barring something major that I cannot possibly foresee, she or someone like her will be the French president next time. Le Pen is only the beginning. People like her will be taking over leadership throughout Western Europe in the coming years.
