The Day After The Day After

The Day After The Day After

President Elect Trump.  There I said it.  It’s true.  Deal with it.  We all know that you’re not leaving the country.  That was just the usual talk. (Although, I hope many of you would).  Now, you’re all angry with the result.  Well, tough.  It’s plain and simple.  All of you living on the coasts, just don’t understand the rest of the country.  You treat them like they are peasants and expect them to follow your beck and call.

However, President Elect Trump gets it.  That’s why he’s will be the 45th President of the United States.  He knows there are many people in this country that are hurting.  He understands that these people want to feed their family.  And, most importantly, he spoke to them.  He spoke to them in ways that they haven’t heard since FDR and Ronald Reagan.  Even Michael Moore got it.

The political establishment in this country never did get it, not in the primaries or the general election.  For many years, they’ve been stuck in their houses in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco.  However, there is a large portion of the country that doesn’t live there.  Those people live in the so-called fly over states.  Those people live in the rust belt.  These are the people that elected Donald Trump.  And, these people have spoken loud and clear.

Too many people in Washington do not understand any of these people.  The left has been calling them racists, sexists, etc., but the reality is all they want to do is feed their family.  And, they believe the political elite have done nothing for them.  As Donald Trump was speaking to black Americans, what did they have to lose by voting for him.  They answered:  Nothing.

The political establishment has received it’s wake up call.  You cannot pander to a large portion of the population every four years and, then, ignore them the rest of the time.  Blacks, Hispanics and White middle class blue collar workers are a substantial portion of the population.  These are the people who are hurting.  Donald Trump was careful to speak to them.  Unfortunately, no one else has.

So, political elite and Hollywood elite, whether you like it or not, President Elect Trump is our President and will be so for the next four years.  Hopefully, he will be the President for all of us and, not just a portion of the country.  However, if your fears are true and he doesn’t live up the mandate, there is another election in four more years.  If he does live up to his mandate, then he will either run for re-election or be able to pick his successor.

However, let’s hope you’re all wrong and President Elect Trump does succeed.  After all, we’ve had bad Presidents for the past 16 years.  I know many of you disagree with that, but history will surely see it that way.

In the meantime, I pray that Donald J. Trump succeeds and he truly does serve America.

  1. Truly this was a very solid and blunt essay. The “inner circle” of radical ideologies, will never be contrary to that legend that created the need for hell. Truth or legend, Sal Alinsky gave us a clue with his dedication of “The Rules for Radicals”, Sal’s salute to Lucifer.

    The Hollywood pendulum swings, and is mirrored to the nationalism of the ending of WWII, the John Wayne era of anti-communism and patriotism, then deconstruction, to the other side, to Judeo-Christian antipathy and the policies most generally associated with democratic suicide.

    Let them, who would leave America, experience the depressing “real world” lesson of “skin in the game”, to wit neighborhood organizing in Venezuela. Let them go to Darfur; do not complain about what President George Bush did not do. Let them be “Doctors without Borders”, or elements of “hands on change” in Haiti, instead of complaining about inequality from a soft couch in one of many a magnificent Castle

    Little will be accomplished with those whose idealistic feet are cast in cement, both sides. The anchors for “good” are more essential than any rigid attachment to malevolence.

    And yet the “bounds of good” are the easily slipped for instant gratification rather than the necessity for discipline, sacrifice, and the high moral ransom required. This generation is not connected to WWII, even Iraq, Benghazi, and has no comprehension of the greatness of Reagan:

    “Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation. You will have opportunities beyond anything we’ve ever known.”

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

    And then there was the vision of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

    “Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”

    “For in a democracy, every citizen, regardless of his interest in politics, ‘hold office’; every one of us is in a position of responsibility; and, in the final analysis, the kind of government we get depends upon how we fulfill those responsibilities. We, the people, are the boss, and we will get the kind of political leadership, be it good or bad, that we demand and deserve.”

    But then some would remind us that we are nearing totally ignorance of the complimentary nature of Classical Liberalism (JFK) and Conservatism (Reagan), while distracted by radical progressivism.

    The psychologists tell us that there are predominantly three ways of change, death, religious conversion, and a frontal lobotomy. Essentially, the answer suggested is, we don’t have a chance.

    Well, maybe, Trump will not dally on the road to the social experimentation of the “What if”, but rather soldier on in pursuit of a return to our founding principles of those unalienable rights, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and “Why Not”.

    Just some more spaghetti on the wall! Will any of it stick?
