While my prescience on issues has been solid for the most part, certain predictions I’ve made have either been wrong or haven’t played out in quite the way I foresaw them. In certain of these instances, despite a seemingly inaccurate vision, my sixth sense still plays over this scenario as if the prediction just hasn’t been fulfilled yet. It’s with this in mind that I bring attention to the issue of Republicans facing their constituents during the recent raucous town halls this week. I know this may be a case of doubling or even tripling down on bad predictions, but no matter what I do, the feeling doesn’t go away.
As lawmakers face fearful voters over a number of Trump policies, reminiscences of the tea party protests and those disruptive town halls were prevalent. What troubles me about the comparison is how the anger and hysteria upon Obama’s election in 2008 led to a period of right wing uprising that eventually led to the attempted assassination of then congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. I have made a number of predictions about assassinations that either were fulfilled politically, thwarted by law enforcement or didn’t materialize. In spite of this, no matter how hard the government works to suppress violent threats, cracks in the shield are inevitable. With Trump’s unpopularity even greater than Obama’s ever was, the potential for another assassination (or several) is rising again. While dating isn’t my strongest forte, if these town hall scenes continue to escalate, then someone in power is going to die. The end result of all of this hysteria will not be pretty.
