What Happens In America If Trump Is Re-Elected?

Thom plus logo If Trump gets reelected and Republicans stay in power in the majority of our states and in the United States Senate, what could be the worst outcome? Would it be the further transfer of wealth from the middle-class to the very rich? Would it be greater and greater student debt burdens on working people? Would it be the acceleration of the destruction of our environment? Will he launch a final assault on the media and try to turn the entire American media landscape into something resembling Fox News? Will McConnell's corrupt judges with lifetime appointments kneecap enforcement against white-collar crime?

How much damage will be done by their war on science? Will religious fundamentalists step up their efforts to burrow deeply into our political parties and subvert the separation of church and state? Will the world be plunged into a war starting in Iran or Venezuela? Will the government begin rounding up liberals the way they are undocumented immigrants right now? How might Trump's privatized prisons and concentration camps be expanded and who might he be putting in them to generate more profit for his billionaire buddies? Will Trump's expansion of the use of poisonous pesticides and deregulation around pollution cause a larger explosion of cancer and other diseases?

How bad could it get?

My prediction is that if Trump gets re-elected, a whole lot of democrats will need to put on suicide watch.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
