Do You Wonder What Will Happen To The Jails Given The Election Results?

Do you wonder what will happen to the jails given the election results? It would seem that in the immediate aftermath that jails are going to be rather busy in some major cities. Protests against the designation of Donald Trump as president-elect are sometimes turning into riots, so many arrests are being made and filling local jails. However, nonviolent offenders are often being bailed out of jail rather quickly with simple fines or judges determining there is no need for them to be confined pending their hearings or trials.

Longer term, prospects for jails look rather daunting. Trump, if sworn into office, promised to be a “Law and Order” candidate who is likely to boost funding for law enforcement agencies. The also promised crackdown on illegal immigrants is also likely to fill jail cells around the nation as they processed before being deported and sent to other countries.

Now that the Republican Party is set to assume control of the White House and both chambers of Congress for the next two years, many voters think that criminal justice reform might not happen. However, this is an issue that has intrigued legislators of both parties, so there might be a further lessening of sentences and punishments for nonviolent drug offenders, which might empty some jail cells. Mass incarceration approaches do not seem to have won the ‘war on drugs,’ and do come at significant financial and societal cost.

Many local and state entities also passed referendums on their own minimizing or even decriminalizing penalties for some drugs, especially marijuana use. This easing of legal restrictions should also result in fewer individuals being put in jails.

For those involved in the jailing industry, there are signs that prison use might rise for some things during decline for other. The future is uncertain at this time.

Looking at the Future of Politics in the US

Trying to predict the future of politics in the United States is often considered a fool’s game, and it’s not hard to see why. Many different predictions have been wrong in the past and when it’s hard to predict a primary a week before, how do you predict US policy 30-40 years ahead? However there are some major trends that we can figure will probably make a huge difference going into the future.

The Demographic Changes

By 2050, if not before, even with minimal immigration the minority population will be more than the white population. While some see this as a boon for the Democratic party, there are some significant reservations to this. One is that not every ethnic group automatically goes one direction or another. Another is the fact that most minority groups are actually among the smallest participants in the political process percentage wise – which blunts some of those changes.

Another thing to keep in mind is: in many cases there is a natural tendency to go a little bit more conservative. How much of a movement varies, and it’s interesting to see if this trend will hold true for a generation that did not see reasonable opportunity early on in life.

Birth Rates
One possible counter to the shift towards liberalism is the simple fact that couples who both see themselves as very liberal tend to have one kid. That’s it. The much larger families tend to be conservative and religious, which also means there might be a built-in balance to a significant shift that people aren’t considering.

Populism – What Will it Lead to?
Let’s make one thing clear: Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders don’t appear to be aberrations. If anything, Barack Obama’s election in 2008 and the rise of the Tea Party seem to indicate that there’s a lot of anger. Will this lead to both parties going a different direction, or could we see the possible start of a four-party system?

While that seems insane even a few years ago, the idea of two large parties (Democrat, Republican) and two smaller but pronounced populist left and populist right parties that still can win handfuls of seats in Congress doesn’t seem so out of line in these modern times.

Hillary Clinton: Foreign and Domestic Policies in 2016

Hillary Clinton has been a big name in politics for decades, and now, as a potential Presidential candidate for the 2016 election. It’s important to have a solid understanding of each candidate’s platform and policies, what they plan on bringing to the table and what key issues they feel it is essential to address. Following are a few basic talking points, and a small overview of Hillary Clinton’s policies.

Domestic Policy Talking Points

On domestic policy Clinton has emphasized issues like affordable college education, workplace policies and income inequality communicating her understanding of the average American’s basic needs.   She stood firmly behind the Affordable Care Act, arguing that it has made it possible for millions of americans to afford healthcare.

When it comes to social issues her approach is far more liberal than her husbands were, issues like gay rights, campus sexual assault, criminal justice reform and early childhood education are key elements of her platform as she emphasizes ensuring every American has a basic right to safety, education and opportunity.

Foreign Policies

As former secretary of state under the Obama administration, Clinton stands by many of the policies, including the nuclear deal with Iran, most recent approach to Cuba, but does take a different stand on providing weapons to Syrian rebels who are fighting ISIS.

Immigration reform is also an important talking point, as she introduced her comprehensive immigration reform act that aims to plug many of the security breaches, and create a pathway to citizenship that keeps families together.

Hillary Clinton, former secretary of state is the frontrunner in the race for the Democratic Candidate. Her foreign and domestic policies demonstrate her years of experience in politics and her ability to tap into what everyday americans are concerned about. By marketing herself as a champion of the people, she has become a strong candidate in 2016.
