A Baker’s Dozen ™ Results of The Most Important Election in Our Lifetimes ™

Just a couple of weeks left until The Donald (Trump), Creepy Joe (Biden), and Jo Jorgenson face off. This is (according to every pundit and freak-out artist) The Most Important Election of Our Lifetimes (tm – Laissez Faire) or TMIEOL.

Let us briefly consider several Baker’s Dozen (tm – The Price of Liberty) things that will happen if …

Donald Trump wins on 3 NOV 2020. (Or eventually.)

  1. There will be agonized screaming of election cheating, intimidation, and voter suppression.
  2. There will be protests all over the place.
  3. Many of these protests will be accompanied by, or turn into, riots.
  4. Stores, vehicles, offices, parks, etc. will be looted, vandalized, and burned.
  5. The winner will be blamed by some of the media and all his political opponents for this.
  6. The FedGov will continue to spend money at an insane, even unbelievable rate.
  7. The Courts will go into hyperdrive with all the lawsuits over the elections.
  8. New laws will be proposed and probably passed to increase the powers of government and designed (admitted or not) to destroy certain parts of the society and the economy.
  9. Law and order will collapse, hopefully temporarily, in many places.
  10. People will be dying of COVID-19, flu, coronaries, AIDS, cancer, and suicide.
  11. Police will continue to abuse, wound, and kill people, and be abused, wounded, and killed by other people.
  12. The civil war now being fought (mostly without fatal violence) in the Fifty States will continue and probably grow worse.
  13. The United States military forces will continue to garrison and fight in half the planet, costing trillions, wounding and killing people and being wounded and killed.

Pretty grim, isn’t it. Now, compare it to what will happen if Joe Biden wins on 3 NOV 2020. (Or eventually.)

  1. There will be agonized screaming of election cheating, intimidation, and voter suppression.
  2. There will be protests all over the place.
  3. Many of these protests will be accompanied by, or turn into, riots.
  4. Stores, vehicles, offices, parks, etc. will be looted, vandalized, and burned.
  5. The winner will be blamed by some of the media and all his political opponents for this.
  6. The FedGov will continue to spend money at an insane, even unbelievable rate.
  7. The Courts will go into hyperdrive with all the lawsuits over the elections.
  8. New laws will be proposed and probably passed to increase the powers of government and designed (admitted or not) to destroy certain parts of the society and the economy.
  9. Law and order will collapse, hopefully temporarily, in many places.
  10. People will be dying of COVID-19, flu, coronaries, AIDS, cancer, and suicide.
  11. Police will continue to abuse, wound, and kill people, and be abused, wounded, and killed by other people.
  12. The civil war now being fought (mostly without fatal violence) in the Fifty States will continue and probably grow worse.
  13. The United States military forces will continue to garrison and fight in half the planet, costing trillions, wounding and killing people and being wounded and killed.

Finally, compare those grim, horrible outcomes with what will happen if Jo Jorgensen wins on 3 NOV 2020, 19 DEC 2020 (Electoral College votes), or 6 JAN 2021 (House of Representatives votes). [YES, I know – that would be a miracle indeed, courtesy either of the FedGov Department of Fairy Godmothers or the Department of Dirty Tricks – or even effort by both Departments working together. But bear with me.] If Dr. Jo wins:

  1. There will be agonized screaming of election cheating, intimidation, and voter suppression.
  2. There will be protests all over the place.
  3. Many of these protests will be accompanied by, or turn into, riots.
  4. Stores, vehicles, offices, parks, etc. will be looted, vandalized, and burned.
  5. The winner will be blamed by some of the media and all his political opponents for this.
  6. The FedGov will continue to spend money at an insane, even unbelievable rate.
  7. The Courts will go into hyperdrive with all the lawsuits over the elections.
  8. New laws will be proposed and probably passed to increase the powers of government and designed (admitted or not) to destroy certain parts of the society and the economy.
  9. Law and order will collapse, hopefully temporarily, in many places.
  10. People will be dying of COVID-19, flu, coronaries, AIDS, cancer, and suicide.
  11. Police will continue to abuse, wound, and kill people, and be abused, wounded, and killed by other people.
  12. The civil war now being fought (mostly without fatal violence) in the Fifty States will continue and probably grow worse.
  13. The United States military forces will continue to garrison and fight in half the planet, costing trillions, wounding and killing people and being wounded and killed.

In other words, people, the outcome really will not be much different, except in WHOSE OX GETS GORED. But someone’s ox is going to get gored, butchered, and either eaten or burned as a sacrifice! Different people and factions (and media and business and non-profits) will do much better and some – probably most – will do much worse. I am NOT saying there will be no difference based on who is elected, but the differences will be relatively minor both short-term and long-term.

Why? Because as domineering, stupid, wicked, and megalomaniac government has become, it is NOT all there is to society or civilization. So regardless:

  1. The sun will still rise in the morning and set in the evening (and in the East and West respectively, even!)
  2. The grass will still grow.
  3. The trees will still grow.
  4. Trees and grass will still burn.
  5. Babies will still be born.
  6. People will still die.
  7. People will still have to work for a living (even if their “work” consists of conning, begging, or stealing)
  8. The wind will still be blowing (and there will be hurricanes, tornados, blizzards, floods, and droughts)
  9. Lawyers and politicians will still be lying
  10. Children will still be children – and often disobedient and disrespectful
  11. People will still be doing bad things to other people
  12. People will still be doing GOOD things to/for other people
  13. There will still be (or not be – atheists) a God in Heaven.

So be of good cheer! Be prepared, but DON’T be panicked.
