Played Like a Trout

Here’s my prediction.

Republicans will take over the house and split the Senate. Government comes to a grinding halt in gridlock.

The economy stagnates because banks refuse to lend. There will be no job creation. The banks will say their hands are tied because of economic uncertainty and the threat of regulation.

Obama will lose in two years to a Republican with strong ties to big money and the threat of regulation will disappear. Banks will start to lend and jobs will come back.

Without regulation minimum wage and all benefits will completely disappear.

Healthcare and Social Security will be privatized. No one will have either because wages will be so low.

The disparity between the “haves” and the “have-nots” will increase.

Big money is already global and their power will continue to increase. The façade that we’re self governed will disappear completely as we accept the fact of corporate servitude.

Big government isn’t the problem, it’s big money. In words they can understand, the Tea Party is being played like a trout.
