The scenario is this. A person with an ounce of common sense is elected and doing some quick math with an Abacus determines that we cannot afford all
of the entitlement programs we have erected over the past 70 years to buy votes and decides to reduce the entitlement programs including Social
Security, Medicaid, and Medicare which are the three worst but also including the programs to give away free housing, cell phones, and internet.
Will you seek out like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, plot which stores you want to set fire to and rob and engage in "political"
Which stores in particular would you rob? In other words, for those of us that have an interest in investing - where should we not put our money?
You can assume from the question that I would not support rioting against local businesses nor would I support defending an indefensible entitlement
program. I remember watching a C-SPAN debate in one of the committees back in 1996 full of charts and graphs about how the entitlement programs would
be unsustainable past 2017 and the end result of the warning? Nothing. Its the third rail of politics so instead of fixing it and harming a few
people we seem intent on harming everyone.
