I can not urge Americans to stay home and away from crowds strongly enough. We need time for the tempers to simmer to a cooling and fears to settle. I understand the fears & feeling of betrayal, but to add to the just-below-the-surface volcanic unrest is suicide. We need to step back and take a deep breath.
The fear for our future is understandable. Look at our recent past and how the Hillary supporters have deteriorated to violence against Trump supporters. Can we honestly expect peace and tranquility in the near future?
To add to the pulling of the thread of unlacing, the Stock Market opened among chaos this morning. Will we see prompt improvement? Not likely.
Please do not add to the lit fuse.
As the economy continues to deteriorates the labor market is showing signs of rolling over. Job hiring and payroll are starting to decline.Consumer credit and student loan debt hits all time highs, the Government is the primary source of consumer credit. After the elections the economic nightmare is going to begin, the economic indicators are showing that the economy will not hold together much longer and we are going to begin to see the economy to start to unravel.
STEVE QUAYLE – AMERICA ON THE BRINK OF CIVIL WAR
The Financial Nightmare Begins After The Election
This election was a cultural civil war. Liberalism lost. Intolerance won.
By Greg Sargent
THE MORNING PLUM:
For many of us who were wrongly convinced that Hillary Clinton would be elected president yesterday, there seemed to be a kind of upside to running against Donald Trump. Whereas the 2012 campaign centered on a big argument over government and the economy, Campaign 2016 presented the occasion for a grand argument between a vision of an evolving America that embraces pluralism, tolerance, inclusion, and cultural change — and one that is standing athwart those changes.
Trump crudely but shrewdly positioned himself as that latter vision’s champion, through an explicit embrace of intolerance, bigotry, ethno-nationalism, and white identity politics.
Simply put, our operating premise was that the inhabitants of that evolving America outnumbered those who are resisting it. Clinton could assemble large numbers of nonwhites, millennials, and just enough college educated whites — particularly women — who were horrified by Trump’s racism, misogyny, and hatred to constitute a winning coalition. Barack Obama had done something similar twice before, even without facing a monstrous bigot and hater like Trump, and the national majorities embracing culturally changing America would rally behind Clinton and continue to deliver Democrats the White House. Clinton — who came of political age in the south and rose to national prominence during an era when Democrats still winked at white grievance — was an imperfect vehicle for this argument. But she gamely took it on, and we cheered when she went all in on an effort to force a national debate over Trump’s overt mainstreaming of hate, as she put it.
