Time to get real.
The Hillary machine claims that college-educated people favor her while the uneducated are followers of Trump; a real knee slapper for the lucid among us. However, college-educated people who reside in the never, never land D.C. area qualify as Hillary people.
They work for the government and enjoy a wonderful compensation package while being insulated from the up’s and down’s of the economy; unlike most of the rest of us, many are unionized.
Unfortunately, America is presently saddled with a corrupt over bloated government that employs a staggering 21,995,000 employees. With all the exposed wrongdoings no one has gone to jail (ever) not even a deserter!
Hillary claims the economy is solid and growing. That should be good news for her open-border voters, don’t you think? All Americans are fully employed, right?
Let’s take a close factual look at the economy and see what we find.
The Federal Reserve is terrified to raise the prime lending rate a paltry quarter point. Why? Because they are afraid of driving a fragile stock market over the cliff!
The Gross Domestic Product is currently running at an anemic 1.2 percent for 2016. Even a higher GDP won’t support the market at its current level.
The trade deficit is forecast at $426 billion for 2016, not encouraging, for sure.
The budget deficit projected for 2016 is $534 billion (CBO), $100 billion higher than in 2015. The national debt for 2016 is projected to be $19.3 trillion and the accumulated states’ debt is projected to be $1.17 trillion.
America has suffered socially and economically for eight years because of the reign of ideologues who excel at creating strife, division and distraction but know nothing about running a successful economy and a healthy safe country.
