Beto O’rourke Vs. Ted Cruz

Beto O’rourke is the type of candidate who wins elections. It is my opinion that he will beat Ted Cruz in the Texas senate seat election this November.

Never forget that the race is between two sociopaths. How do I know these two candidates are sociopaths? Only a sociopath has the skills required to compete in such a competitive contest. Texas is cited as a conservative state. Texas is a red state. There is nothing conservative about either siting senators from Texas. Beto O’rourke is a much more appealing candidate than Ted Cruz. I think he will win. I don’t support either candidate. O’rourke is a master at both telling voters what they want to hear and making folks who disagree feel good about voting for him anyway.

What are the issues in the race? The only issues you will hear anything about are the ones being talked about today in the conservative and liberal echo chambers. Are there any other issues? The biggest issues are the trade war and the new income transferring ballooning deficit spending stimulus initiative. There is the war for profit issue. There are other issues we know nothing of. Congress hordes information and keeps it from the public constantly. Formal elections are for the comfort of the citizens. Most of what happens in government is the result of who has or doesn’t have political power in the informal system. Expect all of the political dialog to focus on superficial issues with superficial information.

O’rourke has taken ownership of the legalize cannabis issue. That will help him a great deal. Chances are good that Trump will find a way to reschedule marijuana and or make other legalization overtures before election day. O’rourke is first with the issue, and that will help him.

Do not mistake Texas voters as conservatives. The average Republican in Texas, depends far more on government than Democratic counterparts. There is not one conservative initiative in the state right now. Elections today are about which candidate is perceived as delivering the most essence from government. Republicans generally benefit hugely but indirectly from government policy. Democrats are perceived as getting direct benefits like welfare or food stamps. In no case at all is price the preferred method of deciding who gets what in terms of goods and services. Texans like all others today expect to get their essence first from government.

The Cruz/O’rourke race is not about being a conservative or a liberal. The difference is in the style of extracting benefits out of the overall population.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
