So, After The Election, What’s Next?

The American people have been clamoring for someone – anyone – to stand up and change the corrupt ways of our government. Unfortunately, in their zeal, they nominated two clowns to run the circus. The angst over military adventurism, regime change, the debauching of our currency, corporatist bailouts, and special-interest giveaways goes unanswered, yet again.

On both sides of the spectrum, I see the same caustic, fatalist rhetoric. It’s some variation of this refrain:

We need ______ to fix the problems. If we can’t get that, then destruction is the only option left.

I’m as guilty as anyone of this view, but I’ve gone a step further and openly called for the dissolution of the republic. I do not believe it can be fixed. I believe we have outgrown the size at which a representative republic is a viable form of government.

For the tards of the new left, the savior was Bernie Sanders. For the alt-right, it was the Orange Menace. In the end, the choice is a continuation of the same failed policies or a total question mark, both of whom I will begrudgingly admit have managed to steel the resolve of two (opposite but not-insignificant) demographics who despises the insular, self-serving political class in this country.

(As I’ve shown, I chose “Option C”, neither of the above. You don’t have to agree with me. I don’t care. I didn’t ask anyone else to choose for me and I wouldn’t presume to choose for them.)

Of much greater concern to me, is what comes next. When the global financial markets (inevitably) implode, who do those people clamor for? They clamor for a tyrant who will force their will upon the unrepentant political class. Note the tyrant bit. This is how history plays out, always & everywhere. If someone manages to harness the passions (and more importantly the power) of both these disaffected demographics, we will have officially paved our own road to ruin.
