Yeah, sure, the Republicans have a nutjob and a suitably batshit crazy cabinet en route to inauguration, confirmation and so on. And, yes, the Republicans will control the House of Representatives and they'll control the Senate to boot. That's what's called a "unified Republican government."
It's not the first time the Repugs have achieved a unified government. Since 1900 there've been three previous unified Republican governments. And how did those turn out? According to Wall Streeter, Alex Palumbo, if the past holds true this time, disaster lies ahead.
The ONLY 3 PERIODS of extended unified Republican governments going back to 1900 ALL DIRECTLY led to banking crises….Arguably the 3 worst in US History. To be clear, I am defining ‘extended’ unified governments as anytime they control the House, Senate and White house for at least 4 years. This does not include short 2 year stints since it’s hard to screw things up that quick (FYI there was only 1 period of that anyway, 1953-1955). You can look up the periods yourself here and more detail here.
The list of Unified Republican Government crises include the Panic of 1907, The Great Depression, and the Financial Crisis of 2007-2008. Interestingly, the record of extended Republican control of Congress has also only led to crises. There have only been 4 periods of extended Republican control of Congress (3 of which overlap with the periods of full unified control just mentioned). However, the 4th period (I KID YOU NOT) ended in the 2000 DotCom Bust where the Republicans controlled the House and Senate from 1995-2001.
There's a word for this in High German, Gerfukt. What will the Gullibillies do when they realize they've been had?
