A Warning

To those of you who think your anxiety will get a break after tomorrow:  The rest of this year is going to be a time of almost unimaginable abominations from the Republican party, and this is particularly true if Democrats take control of the House.

If Dems do win the House, the next two months will be the last time (at least for two years) that the Republicans will be in absolute control of the entirety of the Federal Government, and their rich backers will expect them to use that time to push through as much filthy, antidemocratic, corrupt legislation as the can. 

Here are a few things I expect to see between now and the new year:  Another massive tax cut aimed at the very top tenth of a percent of the nation, combined with effective tax increases on everyone else, massive cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, rules for renewable energy with no purpose but to make it too expensive to be competitive, elimination of the already weakened protections for minorities and women, savaging of environmental law, and as a distraction from all of this, a war somewhere, anywhere Republicans can start one.  My guess is Iran, or if the Republicans realize what a hopeless move that would be, Venezuela.  Both countries are major oil producers, and embroiling either in a war would mean hundreds of billions in profits for oil producing countries (and Trump buddies) Russia and Saudi Arabia, as well as right here at home.

And there are so many other things, like killing Obamacare once and for all, that I have not mentioned, or haven't even thought of.

Can anyone doubt that the Republicans will take this last unopposed opportunity to loot the country and do as much damage as they can to every well-intended government program in existence?  So, get ready; it's coming.
