The Contrarian

“In the investment markets, what everyone knows is usually not worth knowing.”

“The Establishment is frightened to death…”

so writes the political correspondent for Bloomberg in an article in the New Yorker magazine.

Here is an Excerpt:

The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not because they believe he will harm the nation.  They are afraid he will upset their taxpayer-subsidized apple carts.  While Obama threatens to veto legislation that spends too little, they worry that Trump will veto legislation that spends too much.

You can be certain that if an establishment candidate wins in November 2016, … [their] cabinet positions will be filled with the same people we’ve seen before.  The washed-up has-beens of the Clinton and Bush administrations will be back in charge.  The hacks from Goldman Sachs will continue to call the shots.  Whether it is Bush’s Karl Rove or Clinton’s John Podesta, who makes the decisions in the White House will matter little. If the establishment wins, America loses.

The above is not an endorsement of any candidate. Unfortunately, some good candidates have already dropped out. Republicans are now trying to destroy each other, without even mentioning the opposition. Americans need a strong third political party.
