Back eight years ago we were about to have an election for President, after eight years of war and the Presidency of George W. Bush. The election was eventually down to a war hero and female state Governor against a half-term US Senator and an
nitwit another US Senator. It seemed like a unequal contest, a sure victory for the GOP.
Then the economy was crashed, deliberately I thought then and I still think so. The housing ‘crisis’ was centered in an ill-conceived government (Democrat) construction that had been wasting huge amounts of money to buy the loyalties of the poor. Having control of it, much like the control the Jihadi had over the airliners they hijacked and like those doomed planes they flew the housing market and the economy into the ground. Using the damaged economy as an issue they turned the election around (and by their incompetence) after the new administration came into office with a new Democrat majority they totally crashed the economy. Which has never fully recovered.
And now it seems that they are about to do it again.
The huge stock market crash that is playing out makes no sense. In the past the high price of oil caused recessions, that is understandable. If the cost of the most important energy component is too high then industry, travel and disposable income stagnates. But ‘low oil prices‘ (and the subsequent drop in energy prices) can cause a stock market crash and imminent recession? How? Why? It’s not the price of a barrel of oil that is the trigger but the impending national election. The control of the Congress and the Presidency. And this time it’s an inside job.
And rather than see an outsider, Donald Trump, get elected the GOP is at least compliant if not complaisant.
Raise the militia, if they don’t want an honest election then lets have a Revolution.
