The Stock Market
One developing social strife that will have an enormous negative effect upon the stock market and the economy is the civil war that is breaking out in the United States between liberals and conservatives. It is time to call it what it is, a civil war. We see this in Washington's inability to govern and negotiate. We see this with our judicial systems' decision-making being driven ideologically, interpreting laws according to the justices' in power political views and personal values, with relativism and the ends justifies the means enforcement of American jurisprudence evident in many cases. The divide is wide and passions are at the brink of violence. Truth is being redefined as a point of view. The U.S. Constitution is being rewritten by court decisions and precedent cases that could be completely distant from what is written on that sacred piece of paper. The plain language of the U.S. Constitution is being ignored and replaced by pseudo intellectual hyperbole. This brewing civil war will be a contributing factor in the destruction of the economy and the stock market in 2015 and beyond, not to mention America's traditional values and way of life.
