Which begs the question . . .
When (not "If") Hillary Clinton Is inaugurated in January, what will be Bill Clinton's official title? First Dude?
Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

Trump suggesting that more countries should have nuclear weapons capability is foreign policy insanity, and it is no wonder that many countries are looking at the 2016 American presidential election cycle and wondering what diabolical chaos has infected the American electorate.
> Bernie Sanders' social programs assume the continuing success of the capitalist American economy to generate sufficient products and profits to provide a better standard of living for a greater proportion of Americans. Choosing greater tax equity and less unproductive expenditures will allow Sanders' proposals to proceed to success for more people than the current trajectory of public policies.
> Harnessing capitalism's natural tendencies to reorganize around flexible and changing profit centers as markets evolve toward newer economic realities will provide plentiful profits and better satisfy a wider diversity of people's needs for health care, education, and returning employment opportunities. There likely will be a larger number of somewhat smaller firms providing more specialized services.

Additionally, specialized insurance companies providing supplemental coverages to complement coverages from an expanded single-payer federal health care program could well represent a reorganized and more efficient and productive health insurance industry. Consumers will likely spend money saved in one area in another area, thus keeping the velocity of money high. Investors who recover money from one venture may reinvest it in others, so there will be plenty of opportunities to make plenty of money during a Sanders presidency, but those opportunities will occur within an environment of greater fiscal justice and more social responsibility.
> We can be thankful that our more highly interconnected social media environment is encouraging more people, especially younger people who grew up concurrently with the maturing of digital social interactions, to investigate, to understand, and to improve the consciously constipated corporate systems that funnel money upward to those who do not need it rather than to those whose personal productivity would be greatly enhanced by implementation of a variety of basic human services available elsewhere in the industrially developed world.
