Well folks, here we are and the election is finally over. Not a moment to soon, I might add. It has been, was, and is one of the nastiest election on the books. Both sides got and gave some things and entered into areas which should have had a “DO NOT ENTER” sign. As “JACK WEBB” always said, “JUST THE FACTS”. I’m showing my age and completely confusing the youngsters out there. Jack was a member of an old show called “DRAGNET”. That has a complete different meaning to the millennial group. Just to clarify it was not a show about “drag queens”.
Now, that I got that cleared up, it is time to accept the results of the election and move forward and be as civil to one another as possible. All these people, of which most are young, need to realize that the democratic party did in fact ignore them as to Bernie Sanders; and, Hillary just simply was a flawed candidate. I would like to point out that the party has for years ignored them and will continue to do so if what they are saying on TV is to be believed. The party is “tone deaf” to the real reason they lost. Please take a look at the map below and if it does not open your eyes then there is no hope for you. The map is county-by-county and is in color to show you who, where and how each county voted. It is amazing when you study the map and realize that if not for the “electoral college” almost the entire country’s vote would have been ignored. In “fair disclosure”, I myself thought it would be a close election but leaned toward a Hillary win with “THE DONALD” winning the popular vote. If that had come true, then I would have been unhappy; but, would have accepted the fact and moved forward. It just amazes me that our founders established this system so many years ago and it seems to do the same today of not allowing the populist areas to dominate the rural areas. If not for the system, a very small part of the country would elect every President. Look at N.Y. and how N.Y.C. over powered the rest of the state. Same thing in California. How were the founders able to do this and without a single computer? AMAZING, just AMAZING !
I know it has been a great disappointment to the young people; but, the system worked just as designed. They have been coddled their entire life and have now gotten out of college and entered the real world where everything “DOES NOT GO YOUR WAY”. It is a lesson that they should have learned from their parents, teachers and any adult in the room. The coddling has ruin them in so far as their expectations in their life. Life is hard at times. And if, like these youngsters, they are not taught that early in life, then it is “horrible” when it happens. They are so distraught that they can not go to class and have to have “social puppies” to make it thru the day. Can you imagine what your parents would have told you back “WHEN”??
As mention before, please study the map and try to let it sink in as it only makes “COMMON SENSE” to do so. Let’s all give this “barbarian” a chance and try to offer support to what is going to be a very hard job of “MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”.
