Implications for stocks if Democrats win GA runoffs
That’s a bold prediction, I admit. But let’s be clear, this bull market in stocks – which began in March 2009 – is very long in the tooth by historical standards. In fact, it has been the longest and strongest in history. And we all know it will end at some point.
With literally EVERYTHING on the line in these two Georgia Senate races, we are about to see a political spectacle as never before. George Soros and other billionaire Democrat donors are basically writing blank checks to their Senate candidates. I just hope big GOP donors realize what they’re facing and will be ready to pony-up as well.
The bottom line is, Senator Perdue should win his race, thus maintaining Republican control of the Senate by the narrowest margin. Yet while he beat his challenger Ossoff by a decent margin on November 3, it remains to be seen if liberal donors can reverse that outcome on Jan, 5.
Senator Kelly Loeffler, on the other hand, is more questionable. She is trailing her opponent Warnock in some polls, even though he is a very controversial character. You’ll have to look him up to read that he’s a piece of work – but, of course, the media won’t tell you this.
Since I’ve elected to focus on the importance of the Jan. 5 Senate runoff elections in Georgia, I’ll finish with some excerpts from Victor Davis Hanson’s latest piece on the subject. Regular readers know Hanson is one of my favorite writers. He is a classical historian at the Hoover Institute at Stanford University and the author of several excellent books.
Hanson points out how rare it is for incumbents to face runoff elections in the first place, and even rarer to have two incumbents facing runoffs in the same state in the same year. Hanson emphasizes early-on in his column that the Democrats have already warned, should they win the Senate, they will change many of the long-standing rules by which we are governed.
Hanson then points out some the many hard-left changes the Democrats have promised to try should they win the Senate and complete control of the government – including:
- The end of the Senate filibuster after 180 years
- Eliminate the Electoral College after 233 years
- Expanding the Supreme Court from 9 to 15 Justices
- Washington DC and Puerto Rico become US states
- New restrictions on gun rights and open borders
Victor Davis Hanson goes on to make numerous other salient points in his latest column regarding the importance of the Georgia runoff elections on Jan, 5. I highly recommend you read it for yourself HERE.
