This has been a very interesting election cycle. One laden with surprises and more mudslinging than I have ever seen. One in which people have posted more STUFF on social media pages about candidates, fears, ideas, concerns, and the election process.
Allow me a few simple observations.
The 2nd Tuesday of November was Election Day, November 8, 2016. Votes were cast nationwide, tallied, and Donald Trump was declared the winner. Some were pleased, some shocked, and some didn’t give a hoot. From that night fears surfaced and more mud was slung. On Wednesday morning, November 9th I woke up to discover that the world was still turning, there were still 24 hours in a day, and the sun rose in the east and set in the west. WOW.
On the First Monday after the Second Wednesday of December, specifically Dec 19th the Electoral College cast their votes for the President and Vice President. How the heck was this date decided? There were a few Faithless Electors, simply meaning that they did not vote according to the results of their State Election. The votes were tallied and Donald Trump received the requisite number of votes and was declared the winner. Guess what? The following day I woke up to discover that the world was still turning, there were still 24 hours in a day, and the sun rose in the east and set in the west. WOW.
We are only a few days away from the Inauguration of Donald Trump as our President. I stand before you right now with a very bold prediction. On January 21st the world will still be turning, there were be 24 hours in a day, and the sun will rise in the east and set in the west. WOW.
I praise anyone who wishes to productively engage in the political process. Call your Senators and Congressmen (sorry I do not always follow PC guidelines) and let them know your concerns. Stand tall in your beliefs and ideals. You don’t have to agree with decisions made in Washington, you don’t have to like President Trump. Like it or not he is OUR President. If you want change find a civil way to effect that change. Only two days ago we paid homage to a man that did exactly that, Rev Dr. Martin Luther King. I do ask of one thing, put the bucket of mud down.
That’s the way I see it.
