The Op has asked for what we believe that the post-election would look like to us:
Having given this some thought in the past few hours, since seeing this, here is what I can best seen and figure out.
No matter the outcome, should there be a close enough margin of error on the part of the ballots there will be recounts in some states, especially
those that are quickly becoming battle ground states, thus delaying the outcome. We can only hope that it does not go as far as the Bush/Gore
election year where it had to be decided by a court. However should it go that far, we must pray that the US Supreme court is unanimous in its
decision, else it will be very bad and it would be the lower courts that would end up making this decision.
But beyond that:
If Hillary wins the election, depending on the outcome of the down ballot races, for the house and senate, it could be either something where the
government starts working, or we could be looking at another grid lock, last minute decision kind of effort on the part of Congress. There are
already rumblings on the part of the Republicans on trying to do to her what they have been doing to Obama during his last term in office, and that
should never have gone on. There will be in my opinion, a few assassination attempts on her life, from the Trump supporters, and maybe a few
grumbles. However, except for the major domestic policies, it may work where things go a bit far smoother than before. Many of the Republicans
publically say that they cannot stand her or like her, but behind closed doors would be willing to compromise and work with her on some issues. While
life may not get better, however, from a historical perspective, when democrats get into the oval office, and or have control over the congress,
economically the country does better. It tends to go further and runs with surpluses with the deficits and the debt dropping down. That shows a
remarkable means of running the government. There will be a hearing or 2 more on the part of the Republicans in an attempt to try to bring her down,
but it will stall out or go nowhere and eventually end. It may end if a deal, which I believe will happen, by her only wanting to run for the one
term, though that will not be public knowledge and in short things will continue on.
On the Foreign policy, that is going to be a bit trickier and ultimate here is what I do see happening. Many of the countries who do not like the USA
may soften with a female leader, and one that they know, it could see relations between the USA and some of the Islamic states, such as Iran and a few
of the other states easing of tensions. Syria will be a sticking point as will be that of Iraq and Afghanistan. Russia will present a stiff
opposition and keep complaining about NATO, along with show some aggressive movements in Europe towards former eastern block states. China may soften
and may back some of the USA foreign policies and get tougher towards North Korea, if they believe that this is going to be in their best interest,
along with back down on some territorial disputes in the Pacific towards some of its neighbors. Some alliances will be strengthened and renewed, a
few more may have some more weakening and fracturing, though I do not believe that much will change in that aspect.
If Trump wins:
Where to begin and let start with Domestic policy and issues.
If Trump wins the election, the first thing that will happen is that I believe there is going to be problems all over the United States of America.
We will see more people, especially minorities starting to protest and a few more riots. I do believe that it could get as bad as some martial law in
some cities and states, due to the unrest that is there. I also believe that we will see the rise of terrorism on US soil, where those born here,
either afraid or viewing that they are no longer represented by the government decide to take things into their own hands, spurred on by outside
influences to do such. I also believe that we will see a rise of hate groups that will try to go main stream, such as the KKK and the neo nazi’s
and other groups like that, emboldened by a Trump presidency, along with echo’s of an era where those who were in a minority groups being terrorized
by their neighbors, and a government that treats them like second class citizens.
The evangelicals and the religious extremists will take a hit as the candidate that they supported will end up embarrassing them if not turning on
them, like a viper, and making them regret voting for the man. I do not believe he will best represent their interest or have much influence on him
at all, rather they will like most feel used by him and then dumped after what he gets, and that is going to cause further problems.
The fourth estate, or the news will be a thorn in his side, once again, we will see echo’s of the past, namely Nixon, coming up. There will be a
problem starting with his trying to forbid various news organizations from attending the news Briefings, and if they go like they did before, it may
be that they decide to stick together and not report on what all he has to state. Combined that with now questions of a violation of ethics and
interests, will put his administration at risk for possible impeachment and or removal from office. He will have problems with the congress, as they
are not so sure about what he wants to do or if it is feasible. There will be law suits against the federal government if many of his policies do get
enacted as he would like to see such. And possibly it may go like Nixon, save I do not see the man walking away.
The part on the Justice department will be a thorn in his side, he is wanting things that can not be legally done, and they will tell him such. Look
for under a Trump Presidency, resignations and people quitting over his ideas. The same goes for the military, as there will be conflict between him
and the US military in some aspects.
On the Foreign policy area: This is going to be a mess. I do believe that if this man does what he says he is going to do, we are going to see cold
war kinds of situations go hot very quickly. We will see Russia getting very aggressive in Europe, and knowing what countries that are being pulled
out of, of Russia moving right in and taking over such, as the Trump becomes the new Chamberlin, to Putin. Many countries whose alliance with the USA
will crumble and have problems, and that is just the start.
Economically speaking it could result in a far worse disaster, than the last one. He is talking tough about China, and Mexico, yet fails to see that
making waves with the one country that holds much of the US debt and an economic partner is bad policy. I do not believe the entire wall thing or the
mass deportation aspect of his rhetoric, nor do I see Mexico paying for such. I do see a break down in relations with Mexico, and that it goes from a
cordial relationship with the USA to more of a cold one, if not right to hostile. China is not going to play the kinds of games that he is playing
and may start its own economic sanctions against the USA, by blocking or simply kicking out US companies from its boarders and that part of the world
where it starts to stall out the US markets. Combine that with Iran and now it starts to hit the USA hard, very hard when it comes to the economy.
Iran can put a strangle hold on the USA through one waterway.
