Call it a fluke, call it an upset, call it disappointing, call it what you want but whatever you call it…Donald J Trump is President Elect of the United States. I’m not exactly sure why that seems to strike so much fear into the hearts and minds of the American people in particular those Americans that obviously wanted Hilary Clinton or someone else to assume the responsibilities of commander and chief. Is it because he’s arrogant? Maybe it’s because he isn’t as well-spoken as other candidates. Is it because he doesn’t have the political experience of a typical presidential candidate? I don’t really know why people are afraid but here’s my two cents on why you shouldn’t be.
As a future billionaire, yes you read that right, I watch closely the actions of actual billionaires and successful people in general. As far back as I can remember, every interview I’ve ever seen of Donald Trump he’s always being ask if he’d run for president. It seems to me as though someone has wanted this man to be president for a long time. In all the early interviews it was always a strong no, but as I continued to watch over the years that positioned changed and now here we are. In what seemed like the longest presidential campaign ever Donald Trump beat out Hillary Clinton to secure his seat at the White House and as Head of the free world. Why am I not afraid? In a word CAPITALISM.
Let’s remember people that America was founded as a capitalistic democracy. Since capitalism is at the foundation this nation it doesn’t really matter who the president is because capitalism will ALWAYS reign supreme. That’s why I don’t fear a Donald Trump presidency and you shouldn’t either. Unless, of course, you find yourself on the wrong side of capitalism and plan on staying there. The American free enterprise system rigged but at the same time fair. It’s rigged in the sense that all the rules, regulations and benefits favor the business owner. However, it’s because anyone in America can become a business owner and reap all the benefits of any other business owner no matter how big or small the enterprise. That’s CAPITALISM and that’s why I don’t fear Donald Trump as president.
You may be thinking to yourself, “I don’t know how to run a business.” My friend you don’t have to know how to run a business to get on the right side of capitalism you just have to OWN a business. This where most people get lost. We tend to confuse a business owner with the person that runs the business. While many business owners do run their own businesses, most don’t have to if they don’t want to and there are millions of people that own pieces of a business and will never run the company that they own, that’s call the stock market. So I don’t fear Trump as president because I’m an entrepreneur and since capitalism is the foundation of this company whoever the president is, they will always ensure that the business owners and entrepreneurs are in position to win.
In closing, if you have fear of Trump as president you my friend need to get on the right side of capitalism. As an employee you’ll get one paycheck each pay period. As a business owner you can get a pieces of many paychecks each pay period. So the right side of capitalism is as an owner/producer vs. an everyday consumer. We’ve all been blessed by the creator with special gifts and abilities, many of which can be turned into a business enterprise to put us on the right side of capitalism. You’ll position yourself to capitalize off the knowledge, skills and abilities that you possess and thus get yourself on the right side of capitalism.
