Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States. A guy who has never held public office will be serving in the most powerful position in the world. The world of politics today is crazy, to say the least and as some people are happy with this victory, others are crying their eyes out! What will 4 years of a Trump presidency bring us? I fear it will be a much bigger government and we will continue to add to our debt until the day of reckoning finally comes. The biggest conservative voice in the land, Rush Limbaugh, thinks a Trump victory was a repudiation of big government! I think Rush completely misses the boat with this comment among others he made the day after this historic election.
Out of 330 million American our 2 choices for President came down to an alleged criminal or a crony capitalist! Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump want to grow the size of government. Our national debt is nearing $20 Trillion in debt and the next president will continue to spend like we don’t have a debt at all! I think we got to this moment because the vast majority of citizens out there are economically illiterate! Nobody understands what truly makes an economy grow and it surely isn’t the government! Unfortunately, those in power think that to get out of a massive debt problem we need to go deeper in debt! Hold on to your hats folks, this economy is going to have a very bumpy ride!
Hillary says the rich don’t pay their fair share and she wants to go where the money is! Where is most of the money at? The majority of people are in the “middle class!” The dirty little secret is that Hillary will tax the middle class to get through her programs! The top 1% pay an effective tax rate of 27.1%, while the bottom 50% pay an effective tax rate of 3.3%! The rich pay more than their fair share! We are less than a week from Election Day and regardless of who wins the government will continue to grow! Our national debt is approaching $20 trillion and our day of reckoning is fast approaching. Prepare yourself now because the politicians out there will not protect you!
John Hunt talks about the new book he has co-authored with Doug Casey called Speculator. John talks about how it is living in Africa and he points out how they actually view money in a much different way, than we do in the United States. If you have money, it’s best to hide it and not tell anybody about it because they like to borrow it without any intention of paying it back! John also explains how Doug and him started on this project together and what’s to come in this incredible series! This book is a must read and you can purchase it from amazon at this link: https://www.amazon.com/Speculator-High-Ground-Doug-Casey/dp/0985933259/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475817771&sr=8-1&keywords=speculator
