81% of the population is dissatisfied with the way the nation is being governed – this is GOOD.

At 81%, people of the right, left and center are fed up.  When you have that degree of disgust you can expect “non-linear” events . . . incumbents are thrown out, new leaders emerge, new plans are tried . . . It will be fascinating.  Never before has the public been social media enabled to express their points of view and inform themselves from unconventional sources.  Just as in professional sports – the fans are calling for firing the coach and trading for new players.  The commanding viewpoint is current conditions are not acceptable.  BTW – after the spike in negative sentiment in 1974 (remember – back when President Nixon resigned in 1974 following VP Agnew’s resignation in 1973, back when we had NYC at risk of going bankrupt in 1975 and we had a recession and a bear market) the S&P 500 gained 31.5% in 1975 and 19.1% in 1976.  After the spike in 2008/2009 the S&P 500 gained 46.6% in the 12 months following the low in March 2009.  Change is on the way my friends.  Markets rise when people are looking up instead of down.
