Gridlock as Virtue

I think a split Congress is a reasonable expectation. It means nothing too extreme will get passed and it’s an outcome the market could surely get used to. Yes, bipartisanship is highly unlikely, but the economy is doing well in spite of all the dysfunction in DC. From a political standpoint, this election is no different than any other election because every election matters. What’s changed is our emotional state. We spend too much time online instead of reading books and doing actual thinking. The amplified rage has also distorted people’s perception of reality and everything nowadays is about feelings. So, yeah, I’m looking forward to gridlock, if only to regain some sense of normalcy.
