After watching the seizing of parts of cities, riots, and general anarchy, I'm wondering what the supposed champions of freedom will find in the coming weeks. I don't think they realize they already lost, or that they will find some serious problems ahead.
Looters have their escapades on video. As in the past, they'll eventually be prosecuted. Many will get away with their crimes, but some will find what they thought was shoplifting is a felony. Shop owners, if they reopen, will not be gracious. Honest citizens won't be either. With the loss of the only businesses willing to open in such neighborhoods, those willing to have a normal life will find it's not possible any longer. Their section of the city will deteriorate to the point nobody will live there, and wealthy investors will be eyeing the possibility of turning the area into prime real estate.
The occupiers will be cleaned out. How this is done is a crap shoot, but since they've taken up arms, the first to go will be taken out by snipers. Those that linger will find the citizens not taking part in their shenanigans will point them out, be witnesses for their prosecution, and the college dream of being a revolutionary has the reward of long prisons sentences. Escape is impossible, except for a few. Those that do will find simple family visits are perilous.
The politicians willing to allow the protesters to take over their cities might as well quit. They face criminal prosecution, any supporters will abandon them, and a trip to the post office might lead to spittle on their shoes. They showed they have not respect to those that pay their salaries, and the loss of federal funds will be the reward for the citizens that elected the reprobates.
The media will coast along as usual, but revenue will continue to fall. The same can be said about the businesses that cowed to the ridiculous concerns of the supposed enlightened. Political opinions can have disastrous outcomes for investors. Layoffs will be in the near future, and jobs may be hard to find in the same vocation.
Regardless of what is on the television, or social media, the majority of U.S. citizens were finding contentment with the way things were. They pay attention, know who causes the problems, and the next presidential election will be their show of force.
