Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThey've mastered it.  Slow hand clap.  Huzzah!

The US democratic fasco-communist system has finally mastered the US elections.  Before it used to at least hold out some sort of imagined hope of a change.  McCrazy versus the Obamanator?  The creator of the internet, Al Gore, versus the wretched filth offspring of the Bush Crime Family?  At least they had a perception of having a difference!


But, Obambney versus Robama?  Well done, political/eite class. Well done.

I've had a few people ask me to prognosticate who will win the US presidential election and what the investment implications will be.

Well, here goes.

It doesn't matter.  The only conceivable difference between the two is which country gets bombed next.  The people in Syria, Iran and a multitude of other African and Middle Eastern countries have a way bigger stake in this horse race than any of us do.

That aside, it really doesn't matter.  I am only even commenting on it now, fully, in the finaly week before the elections because of the general interest level.  The US, however, is done.  In a time when the main sources of hope for freedom are Russia (particularly Russia Today) and China, well... Let's just say no one was predicting that 30 years ago.  But just like we keep saying: the near future lies in Asia and Latin America.  You should already be moving your assets and your ass to those land masses.

In terms of assets, as we've been saying for years, you should be moving towards hard assets that Ben Bernanke cannot create out of thin air, nor destroy.  Democracy and fascism/socialism/communism has focused its eye like Sauron upon the US and people like the Obama phone lady are now the majority.  Or the woman who declared someone else's home in Detroit her own. She seems to believe she is somehow entitlted to take over people's homes.  Maybe she has some foreknowledge of Obama's next "home transfer" plan that he hopes will get him re-elected. 

I offer this as proof that it really doesn't matter.  People in the US have been voting for the lesser evil for decades now.

How's voting for evil working out?  What makes anyone think this time will be any different?  Einstein said that doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is a form of insanity.

The great, great majority of people in the US today believe that the US was prosperous was because they were "special".  They believe that if things start to go bad you just have to print more Federal Reserve Notes.  And many of them believe that by bombing and killing people around the world they can salvage the American Dream.

Here's the good news.  This system is dead.  It was dead the moment the US went towards communist style centralized planning on December 23rd, 1913.  It had its final nail put in its coffin on August 15, 1971 when any last link to a hard asset was taken away from the dollar and by default from every currency.  And now after this, the most disasterous experiment in human history, the sytem is reaching its terminal stage.  In fact, judging by the stench coming off of it, you'd think the Western World was already a corpse...and might have been for a while. 

Who will fall first?  Europe?  Japan?  The US?  It really doesn't matter too much.  They are all going down.  And it will be beautiful, once it is over.  The biggest problem will be the transition.  It will be chaotic and devastating to many who are not prepared.  Those who read and subscribe to the TDV Weekly Dispatch will be in an enviable position.  Those who put some of their assets into things like gold and gold stocks, which we cover regularly at TDV Premium and TDV Golden Trader may be in a position for life-changing gains in wealth.

For those who cannot nor will not leave places like the US or the western world as a whole, we are working at TDV Homegrown to provide resources and info to survive what will be looked back upon as The Great Upheaval.

We'll be watching the US elections on the sixth of November like a sadist watches a car crash.  But does what happen that day really matter to us?  Absolutely not.

This game is over.  We've already placed our bets.  They are on getting your ass and assets outside of the Western World for the next few years.  Like in a zombie movie they will eat each other.  It's sad, but the die is cast.

Things change fast in the human experience.  Just ask anyone born in 1905 if they can even believe the changes they saw in their lifetimes.  The whole species went through all manner of wars and amazing technological innovations.  I would have had to send this dispatch by Morse Code in 1905, not through my 4G Korean made phone on my Japanese-made Sony Vaio while travelling from place to place in a matter of hours what used to take weeks, months or even years.  To paraphrase Neils Bohr, more technological advancement has happened in the last handful of decades than had literally happened in the last few millenia before the. 

The next step in our evolution is to move beyond collectivism and statism.  It's already happened.  Only those who still cling to those old systems haven't figured it out yet.  It's okay.  They'll be dead soon enough.  Since I'm quoting scientists today, consider what Max Planck said:

"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."

By being ahead of the crowd you can take advantage of the massive wealth gains that come regularly at paradigm changes.  

As I sit here on a balcony of a bar in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, I guarantee you that not one person here has any interest in the outcome of the US election.  Life here is good... and life in many places that had not bought into the debt-based fasco-communist democratic nation state system is going on fabulously.  For those in the USSA, however, things are going in only one direction no matter who wins.  If you haven't yet started to prepare, what are you waiting for?
