Admiral Nimitz had said, “God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless.” I believe that was the mental state of those opposed to the Clinton candidacy. Nevertheless, Americans voted their conscience and the unbelievable became a reality: Donald Trump won the presidential election of 20016.
And although I voted for the man, I was never a believer. I could not grasp the meaningfulness of what he represented; frankly, I did not trust the American people — I had no faith. Well, faith restored.
The Republican Party has control of all three branches of government and a majority of governorships. Undoubtedly, conservative values “trumped” the ideology of liberal progressivism.
Of course the Democrats and their siblings are in shock. Suffering through a tremor of variant, graduated denials, generally befuddled by the astonishment of Trump’s achievement. This election was won before it began — or so every media source reported. How could the crude leader of the irredeemable despicable(s) solidly defeat their progressive heroine?
Answers start to formulate: Unmistakably the progressive pundits confidently exclaim white racism has prompted a xenophobic revival, black, brown, yellow colored Americans are in danger. Beware! Is the vague but focused warning… the bogeyman is unchained.
Of course such warnings are nonsensical, when deductive thought is put aside in favor of emotionally derived rantings, the result is finding someone or something to blame. After all, it is not possible that the American people rejected President Obama’s policies and his entourage of selected progressives. Gosh, that is not possible, the president’s personal ratings are upwards of 55%… that is if one believes the polls.
The elected establishment, NBC specifically, and the media in general did their very best (though to no avail) to insure a Clinton victory. For the betterment of American democracy and the safeguard of the Republic, thanks to the American people they failed.
I am overjoyed…
