When I stop and think about it, I envision a world where food prices have skyrocketed because of the shortages forced by sick workers as COVID-19 rips through the United States into 2021. I see an already-wobbly stock market beginning to tumble and fall apart as the president finds hims…

This isn't the issue. The cause was due to the ethanol mandate, and the youth and brain-drain in red and rural areas.
Blue and Urban centers now are going to see the effects of DC and urban centers on agriculture states.

Interest costs to the debt will exceed the military costs for being the world police.
Next up will be cuts to entitlements, or the nasty balance where COLA stays at 1% while the cost of living goes up 10-15% per year.
Also, businesses will just shutdown. Blue states I believe will follow the arc of Cleveland Ohio. Which means job and company flight and no growth at all.
