Financial Markets Voting No Confidence in Government

Financial Markets Voting No Confidence in Government

By    |   Sunday, 24 January 2016 06:45 PM

Do you trust the government?

I don’t. And I venture to say that most, if not nearly all, of the people who are investors in the financial markets, don’t either.

Investors have lost confidence in the ability of government to protect their financial security. Even worse, they are in fear for the future.

The government is consistent in that whatever the government does, it does badly.

Many people, I among them, perceive the government — that is Congress, the Administration, and the Supreme Court — as being actively hostile to private investors.

Congress treats investors as if they were indentured serfs on a federal feudal estate.  From the moment of birth (and you are given a Social Security number) to the moment of death (and your life’s work becomes subject to estate tax), everything in your life is subject to Congressional dictates. 

In effect, private ownership of property is an illusion. Investors are effectively merely property renters on a day to day lease subject to a market manipulated and controlled by the government.    

The Administration rules by regulations and Executive Orders without consideration to the harm they cause to the private economy.  The bureaucracy is a vast alternative government which Congress rarely challenges. It operates with impunity. Virtually there is no Congressional oversight or accountability.

The Supreme Court validates these actions by its standard operating principle of giving deference to the government over the protestations of investors and taxpayers.  Even the absolute right to free speech is reduced to the limited circumstances that the Supreme Court approves.  Your right to privacy and to be left alone from governmental interference does not exist in any meaningful way.

A vast array of industries has been created who owe their continuing existence to the largesse bestowed upon them by the government. These sycophants willingly sacrifice whatever needs to be forfeited for their personal gain.

Wall Street, the welfare industry, media, trial lawyers, unions, environmental activists, farmers, are but a few of the immense collective who profit from their unwavering allegiance and subservience to those in political power. 

As long as they act in the politically approved process, they will be well compensated.

Hypocrisy is the fuel which drives the engine of political power.

How else could diversity become understood as unity?  What sort of logic categorizes people by race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual preference, and creating quotas for legally mandated inclusion to achieve the ends of ending discrimination.

Investors are being discriminated against. Their self-earned financial resources are being confiscated by the government.  The government operates by extortion and uses the tax system to legalize robbing the private sector.

Are investors getting anything worthwhile in return?  Are they made more secure from existential threats and terror?

Clearly, the answer to those questions is no.

On a local level, people realize that a gun in their hand is worth far more that a whole police force on the telephone.

Investors have an awareness of international affairs to which the non-investing public fail to pay attention.  It affects their financial decisions.

They see the world in turmoil.

China is successfully challenging the power of the U.S. armed forces. North Korea is developing an ability to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile. Japan is rebuilding its military to defend itself from China and Korea.  Russia acts with impunity by invading the Ukraine and defending Bashar al-Assad. The European Union is financially bankrupt, and its multicultural policies are destroying the fabric of their Western culture. Nearly all countries in sub-Sahara Africa are in utter disorder. South and Central America are a mess.

The Middle-East borders on anarchy.  The Saudis, who are among the major supporters of global terrorism, are in a proxy war with Iran while exporting Wahhabism to the United States. 

Iran is promoting a proxy war with the Saudis and other Gulf countries, supporting Hamas and Hezbollah against Israel. ISIS is advancing to overthrow the Saudis, Iran, Egypt, Jordan and other Islamic countries. Various Islamic offshoots as the Boko Haram, al-Qaeda, and numerous others are evolving and creating havoc all over the globe.

Israel’s existence is threatened. The United States appears hostile to its interests by preferring to appease Iran, the Palestinians and other countries devoted to its destruction and the death of all Jews.  The United States still does not recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Christians are becoming an extinct species.  Even evidence of their historical existence is being demolished. 

Our government tells us we are to believe that Islam is a religion of peace while the real trouble-makers are this undefined group known in political circles as radical Islamic terrorists.

The United States is at war with an enemy its government cannot name nor describe what it will look like if it achieves victory. 

Investors are horrified, at least on a visceral level, that the United States appears impotent in its political will and ability to protect its people.

It is only natural that perceived threats to safety and security creates anxiety; which then leads to frustration; which in turn leads to anger.

Angry investors are motivated to take action.

They are taking the one action still under their control.

Investors are selling off their investments.

The financial markets are sending a clear message of no confidence in the government.
