Answer: YES

The main difference from the election will be whether the government continues to exert ever more control over the economy or expands at an even more accelerated pace. Unfortunately there is little chance for the government’s relentless expansion to slow or have less dominance over every facet of our private lives and business efforts. Instead of genuine granular, market-driven, unshackled capitalism allowing real economic growth to take place and the entire nation to significantly prosper, we are subjected to the continuing path of encroaching government control and interference, hampering healthy economic activity, and subjecting us to a perpetually underperforming, stagnating economy.
