    Three Years to "THE Election" - It Can Go TWO Ways

    Three Years to "THE Election" - It Can Go TWO Ways

    Democrats Win
    Hillary Clinton, Ira Magaziner and their ICANN
    machine expand and more of the population works
    longer to fund the "Great Society". More empty-desk
    jobs are created and more and more The Process
    becomes The Product. Well-funded ICANN Groupies
    travel almost 100% of the time, with funding from
    the Society. They talk the talk, there is no walk
    to walk. Physical America falls into decay and
    ruins as people ignore the physical world and
    move to cyberspace for the pure Internet plays.
    The world becomes borderless, and Hillary invites
    everyone in to grab anything they want in
    physical space, as the population moves to
    cyberspace. Anyone want a National Park or the
    Presidio to build a home ? Sure, no problem, have
    a ball. Would you like a Government grant from
    The Society to build that house ? Sure, no
    problem, add some TLDs and sell more names.

    Republicans Win
    Corporate America continues to lock-down all of
    the physical assets and continues to turn
    cyberspace into a TM and IP police state. ICANN and ARIN
    are just two of their vehicles used to carry out
    the mission of Homeland Security (stability, etc.)
    Major U.S. telcos continue to grow and lower
    prices for physical connections that are
    discovered to be more secure and reliable than
    wireless. People with a clue, move themselves
    and their assets off-shore to watch as America
    gravitates to be a nation of baby-boomers watching
    cable TV and migrating to geriatric care. Nations
    compete for talent and attract people with a clue
    to help them build their nations.
