    Running a country. It is an assumed consensus that there is no reaction to Trump. The Democratic establishment is caught in a catch 22. They are on record with everything is fine and Trump was an unforseen anomaly. In order to establish some sort of unity and structure let me offer this idea to the status quo establishment. We can accept and stipulate that the last 30 years benefited everybody, incrementalism is fine but now we want more. We want lots of good paying jobs with full benefits. We want to make America the best. That will captivate the imagination and offer a sane solution to everybody that felt we should be doing more. Nobody denies that high velocity money produces jobs and prosperity although most are afraid to say it out loud. High velocity money will create new jobs and eliminate unemploying other countries to get better jobs here. High velocity money and increasing the velocity of money is the only way to better jobs with full benefits for everybody. I'll put that up against Trump who still doesn't have a plan for lots of high paying jobs, unless he is looking at increasing the velocity of money. The Democratic Party of High Velocity Money Solutions. That or extinction, in more ways than one.

    There has been and is now, people like Brooksley Born that know what an economy is. Hopefully something will entice somebody like that to enspire a new Democratic Party:
    The Warning: Brooksley Born's Battle With Alan Greenspan, Robert Rubin And Larry Summers
    "We didn't truly know the dangers of the market, because it was a dark market," says Brooksley Born, the head of an obscure federal regulatory agency -- the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) -- who not only warned of the potential for economic meltdown in the late 1990s, but also tried to convince the country's key economic powerbrokers to take actions that could have helped avert the crisis. "They were totally opposed to it," Born says. "That puzzled me. What was it that was in this market that had to be hidden?"

    Your title is : "How to run an country" I've got just one answer: Not the way it is done here!!! As I said many times this country has only copied the British stupidity in governing as well other stupid things from the Brits. Thus then you are asking for it. Keeping an 1800' document intact without daring to bring it into 2017, is ignorant and naive. The structure of two parties only is asking for an dictatorship as is the case now. Sorry to say once only one party rules, then the 3 controlling parts of government have little to say; sure there will be legal haggling, but injustice will prevail if the Supreme court is in hands of the ruling party. Thus welcome to the UN-United States of La La Land.
