Let's discount the people who think their vote doesn't count 20%. Let's discount the people who vote one way no matter what 40% OK, that leaves us with about 40% of the voting population will decide a left turn or a right turn. Does it matter? - NO! It's about Evolution! The future is about the changes that are made today. This road... or... that road. Lots of legislation will hold the brakes as much as they can... that just slows down Evolution. There are no course corrections in Evolution. Those who adapt go forward. Those who do not adapt - fall by the wayside. What is God's will. He told me He'll go whichever way the wind blows.
10% Unemployment is a fall by the wayside concept. Workers, who thought their jobs were safe. Workers who felt they had enduring skills. Those who did not contemplate, introspectively their specific road ahead!
Public Programs - Social Security, Medicare, Food Stamps, extended Unemployment (which was never paid for) Medicaid - that never had the funding that was required to satiate the appetites of the participants.
Pastimes, taking up more and more time, Television, Computer Screens, observing Sporting Events (more TV) Shopping - using more credit that ability to repay. Wanting "Now Things" like they were deserved - Magazine pictured Homes, Automobiles, exorbitant Vacations... Must haves out of "wants" rather than "needs" - Cigarettes, fats, sweets, drugs, "Altered States" - you name it.... Denial!
Add all this up..... Evolution (required change and adaptation to survival and reality!)
The Beneficiaries to Evolution are those who can adapt to Change.
Over 4.5 Billion years, Evolution (maybe 1/2 million changes) that were decided by "chance" (not right or wrong) caused where we are today.
Coming up, the next change............are you ready and flexible?
