Under der Herr Drumpf, these folks will be in a terrific position:

Oilmen, big-energy types, corporate thugs, right-wing extremists, liars, unethical politicians, cheaters, Climate Deniers, racists, homophobes, and rich people.

These folks will be in a bad spot, however:

Workers, union members, average Americans, homeowners (except of the upper class), schoolchildren, small businesses, college students, the elderly, sick people, the handicapped, and minorities.

IOW, it's the usual fallout from a rePONElican "victory," and America will be the worse for it.

Ill Duce Trump fake promised to protect Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid, and the Koch Brother members of both parts of Congress are already fixing to undo that. This "tax reform" and the easing up on regulations will further concentrate wealth amongst the already ultra wealthy.

Ill Duce Trump's white, working class base of support voted for this. Whether they know they did or not they are responsible...and they'll bear the brunt of their gullibility and choosing of racist dog whistles.

There's no question that's what you Koch Brothers-think, but the point there was about how fake Ill Duce Trump's fake promises were - protecting Social Security and Medicare, making Mexico pay for a wall, banning muslims, deporting fifteen million people, having a Special Prosecutor put Hillary Clinton in jail, pursing the Birther line, maintaining that climate change is a "Chinese hoax." He has reversed himself on all these things.(The attacks on Social Security at the moment are coming from the de facto kkk Caucus of the House.)

It's the liberals who are doing their best to tap into free energy sources so every family can be independent from the chain of a utility grid that drains our fortunes from our bank accounts and doesn't give a darn who freezes or cooks. If they can they will push for taxes on fireplaces because it's costing the utility companies profits.

Only the greedy want to bind us to toxic, out dated fuel sources by eliminating everything else. We demanded better fuel mileage for cars and we got it. Why go backward? To make stockholders in oil companies richer? Not me. Economic common sense and then desperation forced us to buy fuel saving foreign cars, which killed the US auto industry that refused to adapt. Change has to happen or progression as a society, an economic force stagnates. Forcing people to buy polluting fuels while lesser nations have moved decades beyond us, is financially suicidal.

DEMAND each house or building generate or store it's own safe renewable energy instead of being chained to the city utility where you pay for some CEO's summer home, but you pay for your neighbors and factories electric bills and you pay for company employee parties and perks when you can't afford parties for your kids. Why tolerate an outdated grid that can and will be hacked by any fool with an agenda?

With natural gas you have three or four houses and businesses blowing up each week. But hey that's the Troglodytes old world way of making billions off of the whipped and chained. They don't care about pipes lines not being where they are on utility maps or that the aging pipe lines break and leak, or that they weren't buried deep enough. Let the survivors and lawyers figure all that out. Oil companies priority is to make themselves money.
