Robert Kennedy Jr’s Vice President and his Chances

This is a question I answered on a public forum where I am apparently still welcome and for now uncensored .I don’t like the fact that she is a billionaire.
Never trust a politician broadcaster or billionaire.
She is two out of three.

As for Kennedy, I think he has a good chance of being elected.
Based on today, he has no chance at all. Live life as if it is a still picture and that is good enough.

Recognize life as a moving picture and his chances improve significantly
Odds are truly great  that one or more events will occur between now and November. The country could very well enter a crisis period between now and then. All of the ingredients are in place. Continue reading

The Logic Of Voting

This is a question I answered on a public forum where I am apparently still welcome and for now uncensored .What good does it do to vote when those we elect are not the ones in charge anyway?

Unwittingly, popular opinion is that if we vote for the right candidates, that will bring about the changes we are looking for. How often has that logic produced positive results? If thinking like that has never worked in the past, What are the chances it will work now? Surely there is a reason this rationality has not worked up until now. Continue reading

How to Save the United States

This is a question I answered on a public forum where I am apparently still welcome and for now uncensored .To save the United States citizens will have to give up personal happiness for a period of time. There are those who choose to believe and there are others whose beliefs are determined according to what they actually see and experience. Choosing to believe is the mode that is almost universally employed. Fantasy is the universal source of happiness. Happiness comes from choosing to believe what is pleasant and indulging in pleasure. Happiness is generated by seriously believing many things that are untrue. Why? Dealing with it that way makes life tolerable Continue reading

Treacherous Dangerous Times

This is a question I answered on a public forum where I am apparently still welcome and for now uncensored .This is a question I answered on a public forum where I am apparently still welcome and for now uncensored. American citizens along with the rest of the world’s population are in serious danger. Danger from outright violence is present of course. Economic danger is present, growing and certain to increase. In the face of this there is a genuine lack of awareness of the gravity
of the situation. There is a black out of any relevant non superficial news. There is little concern and little meaningful information available that might make folks concerned. Continue reading

The Future of Gregg Abbott

Prior to his new prowess as a border crisis hero, Abbott had earned a reputation as an admirer of the WEF and other collectivest  initiatives. Does one case of being a states rights hero change his stripes? Previously, I posted an article explaining the impossibility of a politician being elected to a high office without being a psychopath. As hard as this is to swallow, take the time to read the article (link below). Make a counter argument to each point made and explain to me how else it can be that way. Continue reading

Like Dogs Without A Master

An American without his government is like a dog without a master. We have a nation of people who identify as Republicans, Democrats, liberals and conservatives. Ostensibly, these self designations represent a person’s actual posture in the world. They don’t Continue reading

Biden Crime And Reality

I am not the least bit surprised at the newly disclosed activities of Hunter and Joe Biden.  At these levels, I expect massive corruption. Corruption at high levels is the norm. Folks act as it it is an exception. Here is the way it works. Continue reading

The Stock Market Is All There Is

As far as I know, I am the only economist in theworld who is predicting the collapse of the United States of America. I don’t mean that we are just going to experience a depression. I am talking about our political system collapsing as well. Expect an event of the same nature as what took place in the old Soviet Union when that system collapsed.

Why am I so sure? While other economists focus on numbers alone, I look at the forces in nature that cause those numbers to be what they are. All one need to know is that the ingredients that cause prosperity and peaceful living have been removed from our system. Our free market system has been dismantled. In politics, belligerence has replaced democratic principles. as the driving force. Without these two items, the country has no prayer of recovering from a depression or restoring itself politically. From this point on we are living in an every man for himself situation. The country is going to collapse. Watch and remember who told you so.

The same people who have no doubt that the 2020 presidential race was tampered with and rigged are completely unwilling to entertain the idea that the stock market is completely rigged. The stock market is not just rigged, it is micromanaged higher. What the GameStop retail traders on steroids are doing on a daily basis has been going on with high frequency firms for decades. So, what is driving GDP? It is high asset prices and government spending. The collapse will come when the stock market finally breaks. The driving force behind economic growth since 2009 has been nothing other than the purposeful elevation of stock prices. So, what is driving stocks higher right now? In many cases, we might as well be trading bags of sand from the beach. There is no actual thing causing stock prices to rise other than the staunch determination to keep them moving higher.

There are two scenarios that are reasonable. Prices can continue to mush down in a tepid downtrend until a serious decline accelerates the process. Or, It can all happen on one day from hell that comes out of nowhere. I am inclined to go with the second potential case.

With limit down rules in place, it could take days or weeks for retail customers to liquidate. The stock market really is all there is to the economy. Once it breaks, everything in the world will change suddenly.

Trouble Shooting Democracy The Fix

Wherever you live, surely you have noticed that citizens are concerned that democracy based governments around the world are not functioning properly. There is a solution.

Since I am in the United States, what I am going to suggest here is based on observations of our system. In the United States there are two possible solutions. One is to change the method of choosing members of the House of Representatives to a jury system. If you think issues of passing laws are so complex that ordinary citizens would not be able to handle the job, you are wrong. I am not talking about a jury of 12 citizens. I am talking about a jury the size of the the membership of the House of Representatives. They would not have to be underpaid like jurors in court trials are paid.

The second method is slightly different and would entail the equivalent of a fourth branch of government. It would still be based on picking a jury. The role of the public jury would be to rule on the constitutionality of any law passed by the House and Senate and whether or not the law would be good for the citizens of the country. The decision would be made just like decisions are made in a jury trial. Notice that of our institutions, the jury system works very well, not perfect but very well. Our system of government, the way it is now is failing. The second system suggested is the better of the two.

When our leaders formed the country they anticipated issues with democracy. That is why the United States is organized as a Republic. The fear was that the masses would vote everyone else’s money into their pockets. That was a reasonable fear to have but they did not anticipate other ways the system could be corrupted.

As it has turned out, in a democratic system, it takes a very unlikely set of personality characteristics to get elected to a high office. Only folks with a political personality have the manipulative skills necessary to get elected to a high office. Political personality is like a euphemism for psychopath. The races are so competitive that the truth gets pushed out of the political dialog.

The founding fathers also expected that ordinary citizens would be more independent minded than it turns out they are. What determines how citizens vote. They vote for the candidate who tells them what they want to hear. That is not the truth. Voters serve only as a resource candidates use to win elections.

Today the United States government is used as a marketing tool for rigging markets and forcing citizens to buy goods and services they wouldn’t otherwise.  For sure, self government won’t survive if folks are not willing to make necessary changes required to make it work properly.


The truth is a hard sell. Fantasy Free Economics gains readers one at a time. Major search engines simply do not list blogs which disagree with their political agenda. As long as folks share the link to this blog and others speaking out against the grain, the truth will at least trickle into the public consciousness.

Your Punishment For Believing Lies

I have a saying. When a lie is told, there are two guilty parties. There is the liar of course. Then there is the party for whom the truth is not good enough.

Without that arrangement few lies would be told. The punishment for believing lies is suffering. Suffering always follows the believing of lies but the suffering is not distributed evenly among believers. It is possible for a person go a full lifetime
believing a slew of lies and never experience any meaningful suffering. Continue reading
