Anonymous asked: Who do you think will the front runners for president in 2016? Who do you think will win?
Political insiders believe on the Right will be Rand Paul. Now on the left some see Hillary Clinton, but more buzz is coming from Elizabeth Warren from MA. 3rd Party Candidates like Gary Johnson for the Libertarians, will run again.
If you try to forecast political hot button issues, those will be debt, both nation and personal, like student loan debt. With the Fed pumping in 85 billion a month into Housing, the housing market is growing, but that is like curing your headache by taking Krokodil. So money will be on everyone’s mind. Unemployment will not because government can skew numbers. Plus all the candidates will have grand speeches about how their brand will create millions of jobs. What politicians will focus on is gay-rights, gun control, immigration, winding down of war, climate change, bipartisanship, issues that subvert your gaze from the Money, like who will pay for all this, besides your children.
Now who will actually win, if I was a betting man, I would say Elizabeth Warren. Now why you ask? She can gain the support of the Occupy Movement, who wanted cheaper Education. She can gain independents, who feel the government is out of control in spending by being a Bankruptcy Lawyer. With 47% relying on the government for assistance, she gains those votes by an easy margin. With Immigration reform going the way it is, she easily garner those votes as well. She is trying to lower student debt, by giving students lower interest rates. Yes that is a government sleight of hand in manipulating numbers, but most people drink from the statist kool-aid. Unions and teacher will mostly vote for who butters their bread. For the businesses that will give money to the DEMS, they know the corporatism gravy train, will collapse if we spend more then we take in or borrow, so they will fund a lap-dog they can control while making money.
Rand Paul is nothing like his father, but Libs who don’t want another Dem in the white house will vote for Paul, hoping he will lower the fiscal burden so there are those votes. Gun control and immigration reform will be hot issue for his side. Also getting rid of Obamacare. Republicans are pro business, not pro markets, so they will talk about how cost in government healthcare will be outrageous, and how a businesses can insure people cheaper. True to an extent, but still corporatism. Those same Corporations, will give you a politician they too can control, heck it’s their money, and the ROI (return on investment) is 2000 to 1, so even if he gets in they own him too.
2 Billion dollars was generated last election, the ROI for corporatism is huge.
But all these are effects, the cause is corporatism. The Military Industrial Complex, Big Pharmaceutical, Big Agricultural, and the Banksters sell you a product and that product is a politician. When you see commercials for Coke or Pepsi, they might have a blind taste test, but it’s Coke VS Pepsi, the choice is one or the other. Bing VS Google ads, shows you through Microsoft’s lens, that more people prefer Bing to Google. Once again two choices. The reason sales people limit the number of choices, having been in sales, is not to confuse the buyer. Too many options, means confusion, which is a lost sale. You buy into the packaging. You are sold a product, it’s now up to you to pick red or blue, The other colors of the rainbow, don’t exist in a THIS or THAT buy what we sell sort of world.
