Many of us are concerned that the U.S. economy is a house of cards with high deficit spending as the primary structural feature, but with President Trump’s reelection tied so closely to the economy, Trump supporters have a clear choice – keep building.
If your goal is to keep Trump in office for another term, your job is to power the economy with consumption. Allow me to offer you a few tips on how to achieve this.
- Max out your credit cards – buy, buy, buy.
- Refinance your mortgage to pull out all the equity you can and buy more stuff.
- How about the money you have put away for retirement – that’s not helping the economy now. Take it all out and spend it.
If all of you loyal Trump supporters take these steps, the president will be able to point to a strong economy during next year’s presidential campaign and get another four years in office.
And then you can reap the rewards of his reelection, too. He’ll cut capital gains taxes for his supporters (you do have stocks to sell, don’t you?) and he’ll take steps to reduce the budget deficit by cutting unnecessary spending (you weren’t really counting on Social Security and Medicare, were you?).
Just imagine the utopia that awaits every American during Trump’s second presidential term. I think I’ll begin my consumption by constructing a bunker in the woods. I have a feeling that could become a valuable asset in a few years.
