Post # 104, Bob McKnight's Political Commentary
Elections always come down to choices. If I vote for that person, I get this. If I vote for the other person I get that. This Presidential election may be the biggest choice we make ever. The country is pretty much evenly divided, 50-50--liberal versus conservative, Republican versus Democrat, and Trump versus Anybody but Trump. Let's look at what we get either way we go:
1. Vote for Trump, Republican, and conservative:
We will have a good, but not a great economy because Trump has increased deficits to record levels, and has done nothing about climate change.
All the Republicans in Congress will support Trump and his policies--there will be no checks and balances against them.
Racial and minority tensions will escalate into conflict, fueled by some of the press.
Nothing truthful will come from the White House.
Trump will deliver the first State of the Union Address by Twitter.
White, angry males will be the central and most vocal noise in America, fueled by the internet.
There will be repeated violations of our Constitution, with no court involvement.
The Senate will repeal all rules for decorum in the Chamber.
Rowe versus Wade will be repealed by the Supreme Court.
Putin will be the most powerful person in the world.
2. A vote for anybody but Trump, liberal, and Democratic:
Minorities will be given preferences and priorities in American policies.
Smaller, less influential countries will be given equal access to the world stage.
The court will swing back to liberal, minority leaning appointments.
Extensive government involvement will be directed toward climate change, labor regulations and the environment.
Government run health care will become mandatory.
Union interest will be renewed.
Women will stage massive demonstrations over repeal of abortion rights.
Government investigations will be widespread based on racial, minority, and social charges.
Democratic Socialism will be an accepted term to minorities in America.
Jeff Bezos will be the most powerful person in the world.
