Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

The possible legacy of Donald Drumpf!

Dear Friends:

I had one of our faithful readers ask:  What's the worst that can realistically happen under a Trump administration with a fully Republican Congress?

By Jacob Sommer, Student of politics, both formal and informal
The worst damage Trump could realistically do to the world… Damn, I really wish I wasn’t writing this…
  • He could nuke parts of the Middle East, killing millions quickly and tens of millions more slowly.
  • He could repeal the PPACA without putting in a good replacement, kicking tens of millions of Americans off of health insurance and dooming some fraction of them to die.
  • He could pull out of the Paris accords and pivot us to drill baby drill! levels of carbon burning.
  • He could end the EPA and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • He could hollow out NATO, which would destabilize Europe and the Eurozone while giving a wink and a nod to an aggressive and militaristic Vladimir Putin.
  • He could default on US debt, ending our status as the world’s reserve currency and raising borrowing costs for businesses.
  • He could start a trade war with China that would leave American wallets gasping for air.
Excuse me, but I’m feeling a little ill right now. I find Trump's views sickening.
