The Country Will Survive This Election – No Matter Who Wins

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

There’s a lot of consternation about the choices available in the 2016, and for good reason. Hillary Clinton is terrible, and Donald Trump might be worse. Gary Johnson’s running mate is doing his best to talk us all out of believing that he is even a viable protest vote. One way or another, it seems likely that the country will either continue on a decline or suffer a disastrous four years that will potentially destabilize the political situation across the globe.

I will not lie to you and tell you that things are likely to get better as a result of the 2016 elections. They will not. Neither of the major candidates inspires confidence in their ability to do good, and we are left squabbling about who will do the least harm. All that having been said, this country is great enough to survive either of these clowns.

Politicians of both parties like to pretend otherwise, but the President has a relatively small impact on the American economy. When it’s all said and done, America will will still be a place of impressive natural resources, abundant skilled human capital, and an economy that is buoyed by the relative stability of our governmental system. Again, I’m not trying to suggest that both Clinton and Trump cannot do significant damage to particular sectors of the economy, or to specific areas of the globe with misguided and misinformed foreign policy, but America’s fundamentals are strong enough that four or even eight years of mismanagement won’t be able to permanently alter that.

And to the extent that either does something truly disastrous, mechanisms exist within our system of government for the American people to remove them after four years or to elect a Congress that will impose corrective measures in two.

The choices in this election are not great. But we all are lucky to wake up in a country that is blessed beyond measure with natural and structural advantages, and that won’t change, regardless of which of the bad choices this country decides to make President.

So when you go to work this week, don’t let yourself be depressed and unhappy that it’s come to this. Sure, it’s not a great reflection on us as a country that this election has come to this, but a lot of bizarre and unpredictable forces played into that, and if you’re looking for a silver lining, this is probably the last time a Baby Boomer will have a serious opportunity to ruin this country.

We’re gonna be fine, and so is America.
