Blog/2016 U.S. Presidential Election
Posted Mar 1, 2016 by Martin Armstrong
On the Republican side, the ENTIRE establishment is against Trump. They do not want him in, regardless of the people’s vote. So while they pretend this is a Democracy, it is all about maintaining the status quo in Washington. The voters in all but Texas and Vermont in exit polls said they were mostly looking for an outsider candidate. Instead of asking why the voters are so angry, they attack Trump personally rather than listening to the people. The voters want someone who is NOT a politician to actually change Washington. Put Rubio in or Hillary, and it will make no difference; they will be exactly like Obama and Bush. Washington remains in a state of delusional denial, as is the case in Brussels where they too fear a BREXIT. The smart ones worry that will lead to a contagion where the majority of Europeans are turning against the career politicians in Brussels.
CNN reported in exit polls that large numbers of Republicans across the board said they felt “betrayed” by their party. Nearly 6 in 10 Republicans in Georgia and Alabama feel “betrayed” as do roughly half of Virginia’s Republicans. The establishment still does not get it. This is not about Trump – it is a vote against them. Cruz is taking Texas and Oklahoma where people vote on religion rather than economics.
This is the peak in government that began on 2015.75. It was not the peak in stock markets, gold, or anything in the private sector. It was the peak in government, and voters are turning away from government in a massive manner.
I have stated many times that these people are totally incompetent and could not manage a bubble gum machine, no less run our economy. The mere fact that they constantly have to raise taxes proves they are not qualified to manage any budget. They could never work in the private sector for they would surely end up in prison.
