In less than a month, we will know who our President will be for the next four years (cough President Pantsuit cough cough). Way back in January, my post about the election stated simply: “Hillary Clinton will win the election if things more or less, kinda sorta stay the same. In other words, the status quo begets the status quo.”
In case you didn’t notice, over the nine months since I did that post, things have sorta kinda stayed the same. Central bankers still control the world. Lloyd Blankfein and Jamie Dimon are billionaires that will never be charged with a crime. Hillary and Bill can act with impunity. Nothing has changed. No big terrorist attacks. No financial panic has been allowed. It’s all……the same.
Trump actually had a better chance than I gave credit for. If he (1) didn’t suck so bad at the first debate (2) hadn’t been caught shooting his mouth off about women, he might actually have won. As it is now, though, with two candidates everyone hates, it seems like the lying, crooked one is going to beat the megalomaniac. So, given that, here’s what I think is next:
So there you have it. The only good news for me is that Clinton is going to get completely blamed for the disaster that’s approaching. The public is too dim to understand Presidents have nothing to do with economic cycles (sorta like how her husband got all the credit for the boom years of the 1990s, even though he just happened to be in the right place at the right time). It’s too bad someone so corrupt is going to win, but least it will be entertaining to watch her fail.
