The Truth About Presidents

Download PDF Version

How much difference does it make if the president of the United States has been a whore monger for most of his life? In my opinion it would make a world of difference except that with presidents, a thing like whore mongering is perfectly normal. The president of the United States is the person who is the current winner of life’s ongoing dominance and subservience competition. Winning at the dominance and subservience game requires certain personality attributes ordinary people don’t have. One of those is a sense of entitlement as in everything in the world is his. He just has to figure out how to get it.

The President of the United States is the most prolific predator alive at least until an even more prolific predator takes his job. So, yes any president must have a super strong sense of entitlement. Odds of electing a non-whore mongering president are really slim.

In my opinion, this kind of thing makes a lot of difference but there is nothing we can do about it. That kind of behavior is part of the political personality and it takes a political personality to win a national election.

It is a bigger issue that the president’s constituents see him and the office through the prism of fantasy. The fact that Americans trust presidents and have blind respect for the office of president is the serious issue. The fantasy is that the president is filled with a burning desire to do good for the American people. It is a fantasy that a person runs for president out of a deep desire to serve humanity.

Donald Trump is a difficult case. Things like infidelity in marriage and paying women off and even the media trying to get rid of him actually help him. That way no one even notices the really bad things he is doing.

The big three are:

The trade war  which serves to create enough inflation to put the burden of the federal debt on to the backs of an unaware population.

Ballooning the federal deficit so as to create new frenzy feedings on federal money, further widening the income gap between the upper 1 percent and the rest of the country.

Funding more stock buybacks by reducing the corporate tax rate while knowing that is what it will be used for.

These three items get no mention in the press. The public is not interested. Together these three things may very well do more harm to the country than anything a preceding president has ever done.

The truth is a hard sell. Fantasy Free Economics gains readers one at a time. Major search engines simply do not list blogs which disagree with their political agenda. As long as folks share the link to this blog and others speaking out against the grain, the truth will at least trickle into the public consciousness.

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.
