I have to say, I had a great time on Tuesday night. I spent 2.5 hours in front of my computer, participating in the live chat with my Ricochet friends. There must have been over 200 of us, from all over the world, chiming in and giving reports of how the voting was going in their areas. People would come back from casting their ballots, and mention lines around the block at the polling stations. Many people were watching other broadcast and Internet media, and they would tell us what MSNBC and ABC and CBS and CNN were doing and saying. One member from Florida was very enthusiastic about how well the Republicans were doing in his state, which was considered a battleground. Many people mentioned how depressed the mainstream media folks were acting, as Donald Trump pulled ahead in state after state. Those who live in a bubble of liberalism were finally being hit with a big spray of cold, hard reality. I thought it was a joke, but it seems that the Canadian web site for potential immigrants actually went down under the weight of Hollywood and other celebrities and liberals making good on their threats to leave if Trump was elected. [I say to them, don’t let the door hit you on your way out!]
So, now it’s the Great Aftermath, and lots of liberals out there, especially the coddled young snowflakes, are reacting just like you’d expect them to. How? By protesting, of course! These cry-bullies seem not to know how to do anything except protest. In Seattle, they hit the streets. In California, the CEO of a tech company suggested very strongly that any employee who voted for Trump should resign! They are so blind, they who emphasize “tolerance and inclusion” proceed to exclude and discriminate against those who don’t think or vote like they do! Oh, and the Stock Market! Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up over 200 points. But the Nasdaq Composite Index fell over 42 points-another Liberal tantrum (tech companies are run by liberals who don’t know what side of their bread is buttered).
There are a lot of happy Republicans today. We hold out hope that Trump will really make a start on draining the swamp of Washington D.C. There are multiple posts over on Ricochet, with suggestions for a Trump Cabinet, and who he should nominate for the Supreme Court. We hope to say good-bye to ObamaCare in the new year.
I live in Deep Blue Washington State, where most western Washington voters voted for Hillary Clinton. I have a really hard time understanding why anyone would want an old, tired, sick, corrupt woman as president. If you really look at her record, such as it is, you will see that she had absolutely nothing to recommend her, and she had a whole litany of immoral, illegal actions for which the fawning Press will never hold her to account. Hillary Clinton demonstrably caused the deaths of four brave Americans in Benghazi, then lied to their relatives about how and why they died! She played fast and loose for years with confidential, classified State Secrets, for which many others have lost their jobs and gone to prison! I am disgusted with how the politicized FBI let her off scot-free.
We are fortunate that the Clinton Crime Family won’t be running this country.
I wish only for the best of a Trump Administration. I think he will do well as president, rolling back the misdeeds of the Obama years. Onward to Liberty!
