I Fear This Possible Future

Much as I dislike cartoonist Lisa Benson's work and worldview, I have to admit I fear the possibility of her being right in this cartoon:

I disagree that the "tax cuts" are what's revving the economy, but it's an empirical fact that the economy continues to grow at a health rate, as it has been for the past eight or so years. And all too often, it seems, voters react to that and not to the many other important aspects of governance (like, oh, I don't know, separating children from their parents, fomenting climate change, or starting trade wars with our closest allies).
