Political Predictions for 2017

Constitutional Convention

  • Constitutional Convention. We are 2 states away from approving a constitutional convention. This is where the U.S. throws away its existing constitution and a new one is written from scratch. The Radical Right has been slowly pushing for this state-by-state for decades. When they get the last few states to approve it, all hell will break loose because the left will have been caught off guard. The new constitution will be a Right Wing Wet Dream: No civil rights for women, people of color, and LGBT people… plus an explicit ban on them. A ban on funding for social programs, public education will be eliminated, etc. As a result, only the rich will get an education, everyone else will become enslaved by corporations.

  • The Mosul Dam will fail, killing 100,000 people. Iraq will rush to blame Trump. Trump will blame Obama.

  • ACA will be dismantled, with the actual dismantling scheduled not to happen until after the 2020 election so that 20 million people losing their health insurance won’t be hit hard until Trump can get re-elected.

  • The department of education will be terminated. We will have a generation of kids that can barely read… well, except the rich kids.

Trump will “Kansas” the country. It will be worse than anyone predicts. You aren’t using your imagination.

Constitutional Convention

  • The container format wars (which I predicted previously) will heat up, stalling progress and putting at least 1 company out of business.

2020 dems wok run as “I’ll bring back the dignity of presidency” and nobody cares. (the people that were already going to vote Dem care, but everyone asks, “Why isn’t your slogan about making my life better?” and “FoxNews tells me that the president is dignified and Dems are not….

2020 dems will run as “I’ll bring back the pride of presidency” and nobody cares.
