Warning, worst-case scenario doom and gloom. If that's your thing, and it is for many these days, enjoy.
Though things certainly appear bleak, we are not turning Japanese. But with the repubs back in power (so soon!), we can expect wealth to continue its decades-long concentration into the tiny upper class, at the expense and decimation of the middle class, a.k.a. the taxpayer. Expect jobs created, possibly with the help of more business tax cuts to be low wage and without benefits, thanks in great measure to the large pool of available labor.
Maybe someday, if the border fence is not completed, we can slip into Mexico to find temporary work.
