A Republican hold of the House will see the stock markets jump as fears of the Democrats undoing everything Trump has accomplished recede. The dollar will rally and the focus will shift to Europe.
But at the same time the outcome of election day will be messy. There will be lawsuits, hanging chads, evil Russians and a showdown on the Texas border. The news media will be full of reports of violence stoking further enmity and division because their job is the enforcement of control.
Everything has a price and on Tuesday we will know just how high a price Americans are willing to pay to set things on a different path. Trump is no savior, he’s a vessel, an imperfect one for sure, but he’s what we have right now.
