Christmas is upon us. Some thoughts as Christmas is upon us and the year is winding down.
The recent Presidential Election is now well in our rear view mirror and yesterday the designated electors from all 50 states voted and Donald J.Trump is now designated as our 45th President. I’m hopeful that we, as a country can now begin to move forward into 2017.
That being said, I’m not so sure that moving forward is going to be so easily accomplished. As I read news stories and postings on the profusion of social media sites I am both concerned, and confused.
There continues to be what appears to be a great deal of hate for the newly elected president. Possibly not for him specifically and rather for the overall process which brought him to his newfound position. I can only speak for myself in this matter, and back in 2008 and 2012 my choice for president didn’t win either year. Those of my family and close friends while disappointed certainly didn’t display any of the outbursts which have been reported over the past few weeks.
No one went to the electoral college gathering in Colorado to shout furious rhetoric while acting like some whiny, bad-tempered child. We were not pleased with the outcome of the vote and moved on. We were wise enough to know that the Republican Party had not put forth a quality candidate. Nor had that candidate connected with the voters.
Back to current events, the Republican candidate connected with his voting base and the Democrat, Hillary Clinton didn’t. I’m certain that plenty of reviews and dissection of the 2016 Presidential Election will look at everything but how the candidate connected with their respective voters.
Now, six weeks after the election, there continue to be those statist democrats who are filled with and spew nothing but ungracious, scathing and vile sputum at one and all. I’ll assert that this is a contributing basis for the divide in this country. With the statist left continuing to act like the child who didn’t get their way, nothing will be resolved. Time to man up Democrats.
