Why Clinton lost in one chart.
There was no “Whitelash”.
The democrats just didn’t care who won.
He. Is. Not. Conservative.
Word for word from the Coyote:
Dear Conservatives: As you wallow around in your election-day schadenfreude, I offer you this note of caution: Except perhaps on immigration and a few miscellaneous issues like climate, Trump is not a Conservative. He has no apparent respect for the Constitution, or free speech, or any number of individual freedoms. He is a serial abuser of eminent domain and has lived off of crony rents for decades. We often compare government unfavorably to private individuals when it comes to budgeting, observing that most of us can only spend as much as we bring in, unlike a profligate Federal government — but Trump can’t control spending in his own private sphere and has run up huge amounts of debt he has had to disavow in various quests for self-aggrandizement. Do you really think he won’t do the same thing with public funds?
I said this morning I would give up political prognostication, but I am fairly sure in less than 6 months we are going to see prominent Conservatives coming out publicly with buyer’s remorse.
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.
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.
