You Knew It – This Post Trumps the Others…

You knew it had to be coming.  The election ends; I have said so much about Trump (and against Hillary).  There had to be a post.  Well, here it is in all its glory.

(Not) – I had a very long night last night.  I ate out, followed the election. I played on my tablet at the restaurant, followed the election.  I worked out, followed the election.  I made chili (veg), followed the election.  In short, I followed the election.  That’s not really like me.  This has been the first election, really, in as long as I can remember where I was really into the election itself.  I looked at maps, read articles, listed to newscasts, and followed on my tablet.

I noticed the trend before they really started talking about it too much:  Hillary winning the big cities, but Trump covering the rest of the states.  I didn’t realize what a defeat it was, how surprising it was, until it was over.  Then people were like…shell shocked.  I head to some of my social sites and people are scared and worried and don’t know what to do.  I was kinda dumbfounded.  It has taken till now for me to really get ahold of what has happened.

IT WAS A GREAT UPSET!!! Both to the Democrats and to the polls.  The polls, I guess, had never been this wrong.

So, yes, it is over and my person, Mr. Trump, won.  Now, what happens, America?  Everyone is asking that.

I listened to Mr. Trumps acceptance speech after Hillary called him.  He had changed; he has matured; I think we will be okay.  He was not quite the power monger or the anti-Christ people had pegged him as.  He spoke of peace, moving forward, healing our country, and caring for the people.

I listened to Hillary’s consolatory (right word?) speech.  She, basically, said the same thing.  She tried hard to pull the people together, to have Republicans and Democrats work together, all people work together to help our nation and its peoples.  Good speech, good timing. I think it will help a lot.

I believe we are now entering something very new, brand new:  we have a Republican President, House, and Senate.  Never before, well in a very long time, have we had such a chance to pull together and work hard to get something very positive done.  We have the opportunity to rebuild, restructure, and unite our country.

Yes, the stocks are down; people are scared; however, I think Mr. Trump truly wants to do what he kept saying he wanted to do:  unite and rebuild, help our country become great once again.

I certainly want that.

It is my hope that we will all do just that and that he will provide us the leadership that lends itself toward those precious goals.

I am not boasting; I am not bragging; I am not saying, “I told you so.”

What I am saying is, “Let’s not blow this.  Let’s all work together hard and see how great we can become.”

U-S-A!    U-S-A!    U-S-A!    U-S-A!    U-S-A!    U-S-A!

Let’s make America “Great Again”.

    I do think much good will come of this result. I see it as the manure that will help the garden grow and bloom. Others will see this administration as the new growth and blooms from manure that was already laid down.

    the polls — yes, al those 24H-of-interest channels are only bringing it to the metropoles — their eyes must have missed what real Journalism might have seen coming — brexit warned about this.

    I voted for The Donald. He was not my first, nor second choice but ultimately the only choice. Since Mr. Trump has no experience with which to judge him in the political arena one can only hope that his native intelligence and business acumen will transfer to this new venue. On the other hand, his opponent has had many years of experience, all of which was seemingly used for personal enrichment with a complete and reckless disregard for any vestige of morals or ethics. I wish our President-Elect Godspeed and will suspend judgment until he has had a chance to prove himself.

    I was starting to roll my eyes at everyone’s “doom and gloom” posts, so thanks for actually writing something moderate and positive.

      I would have had to work at it, but would have been fairly positive even if he hadn’t won. I said my prayers and asked God to simply put in power whoever needed to be there. If we need a war, then so be it…then I just let it go.
      I voted my conscience, so I am okay.

        Exactly. I voted my conscience, the results are what they are and now we all need to move on and begin the next chapter.

    Certainly is a lighter cheer than what I’ve been reading all day from American bloggers. I really have no political standing in this as a less than politically correct Canadian, but I’m glad to have read this in your perspective.

      The people have gone 1/2 nuts over here! I mean, really, the President has power, but he doesn’t have all the power. That’s by design. I voted for Obama the first term. He didn’t do what he promised and things got worse, so I didn’t vote for him the second time. But through it all, I knew he didn’t do it all. The House and Senate had their hands in it, too. I am hoping that by all three being same party for 4 years, something good will get done.

    Well-said! I rarely comment on politics in general (yes, I’m a bit of an ostrich) because what will be will be. I’m old enough to have seen a few crappy presidents. I believe the key to a president’s success is his (or her–someday) relationship with Congress. I did not want to see another Clinton running the country. The Clinton era is over (as stated by Capitol Public Radio this a.m.) and Trump can and should be the new (no-nonsense business) model for running our country. Sure he’s a vulgar sh*thead, but he ain’t coming to my house for lunch, so who cares? Yes, he did mature. Your post was spot on. I’m from California where we just voted on legalizing marijuana! Still sorting out the 17 propositions we had to vote for.
