Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right

The thing I am hearing a lot of right now is that people want to wait and see what happens in this election. The little voice in my head, you know, that screaming lunatic that I have to filter every waking moment of my life says “Why? It does not matter!”

Oh, I know. It does matter. If X is elected to office you’re moving to Canada. Or Mexico because they now have a wall keeping Americans out…right?

The truth of the matter is every four years this country holds a Presidential election. While this is the most contentious of my life time, every four years in spite of the rhetoric, the Republic stands.

The Republic will stand this time as well. It will stand because we have checks and balances. We have three arms of government for the specific purpose of allowing the Republic to stand in spite of political shenanigans. The Executive Branch can only do so much without the Legislative Branch which can only do so much without the Judicial Branch. Those old guys were pretty smart when they set this thing up.

At the end of the day, the Republic will stand. The question is where do you stand? Are you an early adopter? The early majority? The late majority or a laggard?

In real estate the early adopters get the return. The early majority do well in real estate. The late majority generally see a midland return and the laggards are the ones that get beat up in real estate.

Who are you?
