This election (2016) was, to say the least, interesting. In my opinion neither candidate was the person for the job, they both have major flaws. What person doesn’t? We’re a flawed society with people, or sheeple as I call them, that follow blindly without an ounce of research on either person, only armed with what the mass media tell them.
I’m not going to sit here and list the flaws of both candidates, I don’t have that kind of time. People had to make a choice between a career politician with a murky past and a career businessman that shoots from the hip and has no experience. Do you want to be shot or hung?
Now that it’s over and the people have voted, the results are what the results are. They aren’t going to change them no matter how much you whine, cry and protest. If that worked, the last eight years would’ve been different. I see the people around this great land of ours protesting in defiance, shutting down traffic and causing problems for citizens that just want to live their lives. That’s great, your right to assemble and free speech is clearly written in the same Constitution that spells out the election process that you, all of the sudden, don’t like because your person didn’t win. You don’t get it both ways, that’s not how this works. This is the entitlement factor that the younger generation has. This is the, we all get a ribbon/trophy just for being participants and we’re all winners philosophy. I didn’t vote for him and I don’t like him so change it so I’m a winner. In real life, their are winners and losers, you don’t always get that ribbon.
The beauty of the Constitution is that its written so no man/woman can hold the office of President for longer than four years without another election and no longer than two terms. This was done to insure a Democracy not a Monarchy. It’s one of the things that make this country what it is. If you don’t like the outcome, you have another chance to change it, don’t be sore if/when you lose. So lets unite as a country, live our lives and move on with our day.
