Well, the election is over and you would think people would start moving on with their lives.
However, we are seeing “paid for” disruption of the democratic process that has made the US the model democracy in the world. People like George Soros are funding vast protests to cast doubt on the legitimacy on Trump’s presidency. Trump has been elected the President of the US. Those who want to say, “He is not my president” should pack their bags and leave. Many of them are already in Panama.
It has happened before, but once again you start hearing that Hillary won the popular vote and should be president. Luckily the founding fathers of the US Constitution saw that popular votes could disenfranchise a large portion of the nation and created the Electoral College.
Many people don’t understand the reason for the Electoral College. Following is a very good presentation of the rational for its creation and its benefits.
When Obama ran for president, I voted against him. He won and I said, fine, lets see what happens. I felt he was a good speaker and might be what the nation needed. I didn’t get upset because my choice lost. Disappointment should only motivate people to be more involved the next election.
In fact the transition from George Bush to Obama was the model that should be followed. Following the transition, Bush backed out of the public spotlight and let Obama do his thing without any comments from Bush.
I hope Obama can do that with Trump, but I don’t expect it to happen. It is not in his best interest.
This time my candidate was Trump. I think he deserves a chance, the same way I thought Obama deserved a chance. If he doesn’t perform to everyone’s expectations or desires, you have your opportunity to vote him out next time.
Now it is time to stop pouting and start enjoying our time on this planet. I know I have fewer days in front of me than behind me and intend to enjoy them independent of who is in office.
