The Decline and Fall of the Average Person

by chumchingee

Recently we have been entertained by a Billionaire!

Donald Trump is an original politician if nothing else.

Reminds me a lot of Archie Bunker.

Ted Cruz reminds me of a Christian Politician bound by his beliefs to vote or not to vote in our Congress. More interested in what he skipped voting on rather than what he voted for.

Ben Sanders appears to be a rigid politician a little too old for the game. I suspect he is the fall back politician if Mrs. Clinton ends up in jail. He is likely the next President of the Country if Trump does not get it.

All of which brings up what is happening in the average home across America.

At 7 in the morning, I see a lot of average people making their way to work. What they work at is nor really clear to me.

But given an average salary of about 30,000 a year give or take 5 thousand most of these people are barely making it even if they are working.

The villain here is mostly the revolution in the insurance industry. This in turn is brought about by government regulation forcing everyone to have health insurance whether or not they can afford it or not.

The increase in liability brought about by government regulation has skyrocketed the rates and has brought deductables out of sight. For instance before all this the deductable per person on a secondary insurance was roughly 600 dollars per year. It is currently around 6,000 in 2015.

People’s premium rates have gone through the ceiling. The penalty is around 1,000 dollars not to take insurance.

This means roughly a 40% increase in spending for insurance meaning a 40% decrease in disposable income for the average person.

Both parties appear to be lock stepped with the White House on this.

Meaning they will not change a thing. The new speaker of the house has just sold us all down the river even to financing Planned Parenthood for another year.

That basically means the poor person on the street is messed over big time.

What does this mean to fellows like Trump? More than you might think.

The key here is how much money is there out there for people to spend.

Because that 40% is directly related to how much people can spend in retail stores this next year.

Meaning a whole lot of businesses going bankrupt all at once over the next year. The market place has suddenly got close to 40% less money to work with than it did before the government regulation forcing money out of people’s pockets.

Mr. Trump and other billionaires are likely to take the fall on this. So that is why I think Mr. Trump is running for office. He sees things we do not. And one of those things is a world wide economic disaster of proportions we have never seen before.

Is he seriously running for office? I maintain he is not. I think he is throwing chaos into the mix and it has gone way too far for him to stop. I think he keeps making the statements he does in an attempt to legitimately be disqualified for office. It has backfired on him big time. He is likely the next President of this country. Because I think Archie Bunker could actually win an election in the current economic climate of destruction.

People do not care if you are white, black, purple polka dot, or anything else. They do not care if you are christian, muslim, hindu, budha, or anything else.

What they do care about is fixing the situation we have gotten ourselves into. If that means being politically incorrect so be it. They want to fix things and Trump has offered to do so with the most outrageous plans of anyone in the mix. Will it work? Probably not as the reality hits the fan.

Several of Trump’s plans are illegal.

Several are economically and logistically impossible to do.

People do not care that he comes across like an idiot in a china shop bull match. He offers something the rest are not willing to do. That is he offers them hope. Will hope be enough to win?

I suggest that the most likely candidate will be Mr. Sanders of the Democrats. He will likely win if Trump does not. He will win because he is the safest solution out there. I don’t think so but that is the image.

What will happen in the next year and there is no set time for it is the largest world crash of every market out there. Mostly because of that 40% decline in average net income after everyone pays their bills called discretionary income.

Against that background we will elect a President if an election is actually possible at that time. Otherwise we will be living under marshal law.

There is an incredible power structure underneath everything in D.C.

Will they accept Trump as President? He is going to change the entire structure of rules by which we live if he makes it to the Presidency.

I think that incredible power structure has much more to lose if he doesn’t make it to President than if he does make it.

When I was in charge in what I describe as a very small puddle I did one thing very right. I put people knowledgeable underneath my charge.

IF Donald despite the speeches, puts people under him that are very talented individuals with very creative ideas, he will be a successful President. But only if he listens very closely to what they have to say and rules with them, not over them.

In my opinion, that is the only hope the average, common person has.

Otherwise the entire economic world is likely to fall apart. That means a whole lot of dictators and tyrants ruling over everything and everyone.

I think I will vote for Trump.
