Trump winning does not frighten me because it is so unlikely. What does scare me is Trump losing after he has spilled so much hate and vitriol. That will create a very volatile situation with so many Trump supporters who likely will be armed and dangerous.
From Bush by Jean Edward Smith:
“American tax rates are among the lowest in the developed world. According to figures prepared by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United States ranks seventeenth in terms of the percentage of gross domestic product collected in taxes. The OECD figures include all forms of taxes: income, sales, value added, state, and local. Sweden leads the list with 50.1 percent, followed by the other Scandinavian countries, France, Italy, Austria, the Netherlands, Britain, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Canada, Turkey, Ireland, and the United States (28.2 percent).”
Beware of John McCain and other Republicans who may try to mislead you with a partial narrative.
In the past 84 years, since 1932, the most likeable presidential candidate has won, with a single exception. That exception was 1968’s victory of Richard Nixon over Hubert Humphrey. That is why the GOP will try to picture Trump as more likeable than Clinton. That will be a very tough sell.
To paraphrase FDR, the only thing we have to fear is the party of fear itself, the GOP.
Last night’s Republican National Convention set a new Guinness world record for the number of fools gathered together in one place at the same time.
