In an upset for the ages, Donald Trump won the election. I’m stunned.
I have been Never Trump from the start, I warned my republican friends that if nominated, I wouldn’t vote for him. I went so far as to say that if I were forced to vote for Hillary or Donald, I’d have to go with Clinton [luckily there were three options for me].
I don’t think that he has the temperament, the character or the policy platform that qualify him for the highest office in the land. Yet he won.
I am distressed.
I’m distressed that the republican party couldn’t nominate a better candidate AND distressed that the democrat party couldn’t nominate someone strong enough to sway me to vote for them. Truly a sad day in America that we woke up to.
Now, is there any good news? Yes.
- Barack Obama didn’t win last night.
- Harry Reid didn’t win either.
- The republicans held the Senate.
- And the House.
- There was a massive down ticket win for the conservatives.
It cannot be overstated how important it is that President Obama is soon too be out of power.; it’s been a brutal 8 years. Further, with control of the senate there will be consideration for the Supreme Court – and if Trump holds too his word [not a guarantee] there will be a conservative Justice to replace the conservative Justice. And perhaps another and maybe even another.
Perhaps the worst fears of the left have been realized and the racists and the bigots and the fear mongers got their man. I hope that’s not the case. If there is any hope of a ray of light in this, it’s that true blue red blooded Americans were fed up with 8 years of failed policies, were fed up with an elite republican party structure that ignored them after 2010 and were rightfully fearful of an utterly corrupt and morally empty human being that is Hillary Clinton. Let us hope that we can find the better angels of our nature.
