The 72 Year Cycle

Dawn of a New Republican Era

by Brian E. Johnson

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Will the Republicans win the Election of 2012? Will they have a clean sweep of the White House, Senate, and House of Representatives? According to the 72-Year Cycle, that outcome is almost certain. As unbelievable as it might sound, this cycle also predicts that the Republicans should go on to control both the Congress and Presidency without interruption until 2026! Although one will not learn this in a typical history class, there is an incredibly consistent 72-year and 36-year cycle in American history. And it doesn’t take a Ph.D. to grasp it. With a few graphs and a few reminders of U.S. history, nearly all Americans will recognize these 72-year transition elections of the past. Three of America’s most famous Presidents ushered in these new 72-year eras -- George Washington (in 1788), Abraham Lincoln (in 1860), and FDR (in 1932). Each of these elections ushered in dramatic political change and a 72-year era that was overwhelmingly dominated by one political party. And its relevance is not just found in the distant past; it is pertinent to recent elections, the present political environment, and the future. The book is divided into four sections. Section I introduces the Cycle with charts and quick histories. Section II delves into the unexpected forces that are causing the Cycle to occur. Section III reviews American history since George Washington, providing insights into how the phases of the Cycle have affected our entire history as a nation. And in the last section the author combines the lessons of the past, brings us up to the present, focuses on 2012, and then takes us into the future decades. In the end, one should come away with a historically solid way of evaluating the past, present, and future that one will not find anywhere else. In short, the Election of 2012 should be a sweeping victory for the Republicans. But, as the title suggests, it will only be the beginning.
Description
Will the Republicans win the Election of 2012? Will they have a clean sweep of the White House, Senate, and House of Representatives? According to the 72-Year Cycle, that outcome is almost certain. As unbelievable as it might sound, this cycle also predicts that the Republicans should go on to control both the Congress and Presidency without interruption until 2026! Although one will not learn this in a typical history class, there is an incredibly consistent 72-year and 36-year cycle in American history. Every 72 years one political party overwhelmingly controls national politics and is then replaced by another party in the 72nd year. It is an amazingly consistent historical pattern. And it doesn’t take a Ph.D. to grasp it. With a few graphs and a few reminders of U.S. history, nearly all Americans will recognize these 72-year transition elections of the past. Three of America’s most famous Presidents ushered in these new 72-year eras -- George Washington (in 1788), Abraham Lincoln (in 1860), and FDR (in 1932). Each of these elections ushered in dramatic political change and a 72-year era that was overwhelmingly dominated by one political party. Of course, the details are a little more complicated. But, in short, all the significant changes of political party balance in American history can be explained by the Cycle. And its relevance is not just found in the distant past; it is pertinent to recent elections, the present political environment, and the future. So, what does it mean for the election of 2012 and beyond? How did the forces of this Cycle affect the elections of the last few decades, and the most recent elections of 2006, 2008 and 2010? How does the Tea Party fit into all this? What is the 36-year cycle? Will the political polarization and divided government of the last 40 years continue? The author answers all those questions and many more. The book is divided into four sections. Section I introduces the Cycle with charts and quick histories. Section II delves into the unexpected forces that are causing the Cycle to occur. Section III reviews American history since George Washington, providing insights into how the phases of the Cycle have affected our entire history as a nation. And in the last section the author combines the lessons of the past, brings us up to the present, focuses on 2012, and then takes us into the future decades. In the end, one should come away with a historically solid way of evaluating the past, present, and future that one will not find anywhere else. In short, the Election of 2012 should be a sweeping victory for the Republicans. But, as the title suggests, it will only be the beginning. As unbelievable as it might sound, a new Republican era is dawning that may well be called by future historians the Era of the Tea Party Republicans.
About the author
Brian E. Johnson has had a career in tax consulting, real estate development, and stock trading. He stumbled upon America’s 72-year political cycle in 2001, while researching historical financial patterns in the 19th century. Similar to the process of generating “buy and sell” signals for stocks, he created “buy and sell” signals for the political parties based on his research. It wasn’t until the political events of 2009 began signaling a huge negative outcome for the Democratic Party that he dusted off his old research. In 2010 he began working on this book, researching the parallels between the current political environment and the periods just before the political upheavals of the 1860s and 1930s.
