Trump as President?

It never seemed a real possibility to me until this morning, when I read the major newspapers carefully, checked into the dependable polling organizations, and decided to face reality! by Charlie Leck

It appears to me that Donald Trump is going to win the current presidential race. To take my mind off that dangerous and frightening possibility, I took my camera and wandered around my town on an incredibly beautiful, 70 degree day, and took some photographs. One is of the small lake that was discovered by white people on the 4
th of July much more than a century ago (therefore named Lake Independence) even though it had been a favored home site for Native Americans for many centuries before we came upon it; another is of the old farm silo on Windsong Farm Golf Club right next to our property. The other two are shots right here on our own lovely farm. They will allow you a sense of peacefulness and beauty
before you advance to my frightening and ugly predictions.


Trump is geared up to win in Florida and Ohio!
Frightening! I wrote here a couple of weeks ago that the candidate who could grab both Florida and Ohio would be the winner.

This is how I see the next several years in America…
No more prognosticating from me about the 2016 presidential race. Now I’ll turn instead to guessing just what might happen to Donald Trump, to our nation and to the world in the next couple of years. He’s going to be very sorry that he ran for president for the following reasons.

The job is too big for him. He is not bright enough to handle it. He hasn’t the psychological fortitude or the patience to be the leader of the free world. His ties to Russia’s Putin are too strong and tight! He will make many and enormous mistakes
The American economy will tank. All the amazing gains under the Obama administration will disappear. Jobs will be lost and, therefore, unemployment will rise to levels we haven’t seen in 50 or 60 years. The stock market will take a major hit and the American economy will falter badly.

The United States Congress will be in total disarray. Both parties will be stalled and unable to restart their engines. The problem will be so serious that Democrats and Republicans will seek ways to cooperate in order to save the nation from chaos.

Mr. Trump will face major criminal charges for improper sexual activities (some of them very serious) and he will also face severe criminal charges related to his family foundation. America’s major newspapers will continue to report freely and vigorously about his unethical practices in both his businesses and his personal life. It will force the congress to seriously look at the possibility of impeaching him.

Contrary to his great boast, America will be viewed far differently around the world than it is today. We will no longer be regarded as a great nation, but, instead, as a nation in great disarray and with little influence on national issues.

The ecological and climate advances we’ve made over the last decade and the goals we’ve set for ourselves in the future will stall out. There will be international panic over the lack of leadership in these important areas.

Mr. Trump will be aghast at the esteem in which Hillary Clinton will be held over the coming decade. It will be recognized that she was and is not guilty of any crimes whatsoever. Her tenure both in the U.S. Senate and the U.S. State Department will be recognized as important periods in our nation’s history.

China and Russia will each makes moves on other nations and international territories and attempt to declare authority and ownership over them!

The world economy will be shaken vigorously and dangerously during the first two years of Mr. Trump’s presidency. International poverty will increase and there will be serious rebellions and revolutions in several nations.

World-wide financial corruption will increase to levels we never dreamed possible. Our nation will be called upon to meet demands for aide to which we will not be able to respond because of our weakened financial condition.

No wall will be built along the southern border of the United States of America; however, the movement of people from the south into the United States will slow to a trickle because our nation will not be an attractive place to live – not at all great again!

The Republican Party, in an attempt to save itself, will disavow any connection to Donald Trump; and the Grand Old Party will scramble to rebuild itself into an important political force again.

Enough! It is all too frightening and, for the sake of my grandchildren, I pray that I am mistaken about each and every one of the predictions above.


As soon as the novelty is over and the force of contrast dulled,
it ain't happiness any longer, and you have to get something fresh.

  1. I wish I could say that you are way off base but I can't. There really could be a President Trump come Jan 20th. After all the Cubs did become World Series champions. May God have mercy on us.
