Are We Pricing in a Trump Prison Stay?

I know so many of you republitards have hope for the judicial system and that Trump will be ‘vindicated’ and he’s not going to jail. But that’s where you’re wrong and that’s why you’re weak. Hope equals weakness. If you want something, you have to go out and get it. No one is going to give it to you out of the kindness of their hearts. Trump is heading to jail for the remainder of his life and you’ll just vote even harder next time to make sure it never happens again.

I don’t think we’re truly appreciating the spectacle of Trump and how this portends to the end of America as we know it. Gone are the days when America was a benign clepto corporate hegemony ruled by a select few for the benefit of the “elite.” Now we are a highly intrusive, highly tyrannical, highly criminal element in government hiding behind the guise of equality and feminism to soften the veneer of their evil. They want your guns and then they’re going to shoot you with them.

That said, have markets truly priced this in yet? Let’s say Trump gets 500 years in prison and the RNC decides to ignore the voters and appoint Haley as the candidate by default. Would you be surprised if that happened?

See the problem most people have with the govt isn’t because “the elites” are hogging resources and wealth all to themselves. The issue most people have is they suck at what they do. It’s like managing money for people. If I managed your money for 20 years and did a fantastic job and then all of a sudden lost you 50% inside a few years, you’d be pissed and likely want a new manager. The same logic applies here: the conservative right is being taxed, but not represented. Sound familiar? I think it should.

All we want is to be left the fuck alone and for the nation to flourish in peace and magnanimity. We do not want white people erased from the face of the planet and would prefer if our children weren’t targeted with gay propaganda? Is that too much to ask? Oh, and if you could, try to avoid entangling our men in your fucking wars in the Middle East or wherever you deem it necessary to defend the wonderful grift called “democracy”, which is, as you can plainly see now, a highly flawed and absurd form of government that produces nothing but division and status quo.

The reason why America sucks now is because it is a democracy. Let that sink in for a moment and think about pricing that in to equities as we near Trump’s sentencing.

    Government’s problem is that it makes decisions based on an increasing number of self-described smart, elitist thinkers who are loath to admit mistakes. In such an environment decision-making necessarily trends towards the average and mediocre, i.e., the average, consensus output from a large number. Thus, the risk of singular, original thinking and action to your bureaucrat at some point outweighs its benefit. But government insanely believes the solution to all that is to keep hiring more bureaucrats thereby depleting the pool of potentially original thinkers while increasing output that is relentlessly average. In short, we’re all fucked…. Unless we throw out the government.

    I think actions are proving USA is not a democracy.
    Even the long time financial requirements to be a representative were accepted as democratic which is questionable.
