Trump won. Now what?

This is merely a post to look back on so I can say I told you so. 

Trump won. Now what?

I'm writing this on Nov 4, 2016, 4 days before the US election that will forever change our country. Four days before our country elects Donald Trump for President.

How did we get here? Well, we started by nominating a famous person to run for the highest office in our country. Historically, famous people have always done fairly well in politics. They get an insane boost simply from name recognition. Begin known is huge when it comes to winning elections. Just look at Ronald Reagan, Al Franken, Jesse Ventura, Clint Eastwood, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Once you're famous, you need to pick which "issues" will get you the votes you need to win. You're best to pick the "ride or die" issues that certain groups will do anything for.

☑️ Get the rural, south, west, white Protestant, Republican, male, and "some college",  vote by protecting the right to own guns. Bonus points for threatening the opponent will "take away yer guns".

☑️ Get the religious vote by promising to make abortion illegal.

☑️ Get the upper 1% vote by cutting taxes for the rich.

Overly simple? You bet. That's it. And, now here we are. President Trump.

So, Trump won. Now what?
First, the stock market is going to tank. Like, today. I think that even before he is elected, the mere thought of President Trump on November 4 is going to be the beginning of a crash like we haven't seen since 2008. It'll start 4 days before he is elected, and will last through 2017, possibly longer. Heck, Why not throw some numbers out there... I'll say by the end of 2017, we'll see the DOW drop below 7,000.

Well, I'm guessing it's going to take quite some time for President Trump to learn the ropes of his new career. I say we have until August 2017 before much of anything really happens. So, it back and enjoy what we had with Obama. Things are going to get bad. Oh, and for those of you looking to take a 4-year vacation before things get bad, start planning. Americans will start planning to embrace the expatriate life and fleeing to wherever they can... Canada, Switzerland, New Zealand, Germany, and Japan will be the new hot-spots for formerly proud Americans.

I'm guessing 2018 is the year things will turn to shit for the Americans who have decided to stay put and ride this one out. This is when Trump will really get on his power trip. This is when he'll make sure to overturn Roe vs Wade. This is when he'll raise taxes on middle class, and cut them drastically for the 1% of Americans who earn $350,000+ a year. This is when we'll see job leaving quickly, and not coming back. This is when we'll start to see America fall apart. Think Detroit... just everywhere.

In 2019, shit is going to hit the fan. This is the year we'll bring war to American soil. How? Either by other countries attacking us or through a civil war. The red states vs the blue states. It will be eerily similar to the dystopian futures we've only read about in books or seen in movies.

Oddly enough, in 2020, Americans will figure that perhaps maybe going from celebrity to politician isn't a bad thing. We just need to pick the right one this time. Celebrities, are, in fact, real people, and give the people a voice that might not be found from career politicians. In fact, I think many people would say that these celebrities have done fairly well in politics.  I'm anxiously awaiting the time I can vote for President The Rock in 2020. Oh, and I'm not even kidding. Shit, what I wouldn't do to be able to vote for Dwayne Johnson in 4 days.

Am I wrong about this whole crazy thing? What do you see happening in the next 4 years? Leave your predictions below. Thanks!
