Yes, I’ll admit to having a moment or two of schadenfreude watching the Liberals lose their minds over the election of Donald Trump. Now I’m more than a bit annoyed.
Incivility appears to be the soup de jour of the political Left. Anything from protests & riots to death threats to outright calls for the President-Elect to resign. Announcements by the President-Elect for appointments to his cabinet are met with unsubstantiated charges of racism and other accusations. Even the Vice-President-Elect is heckled and booed at a theater.
For some reason, I cannot for the life of me remember any similar actions on the part of Conservatives or Republicans when Obama was elected.
The political and progressive Left are throwing what I would call a full-blown hissy-fit tantrum. They have been in charge for the past eight years, lording it over the opposition without even trying to compromise, and they absolutely do not like that their chosen flawed candidate was defeated (for the second time) by a person with no political experience. They are in shock that Felonia von Pantsuit went down in flames, and haven’t a clue why. Perhaps this should help:
Perhaps this is where the politicians of both parties need to understand that the American in “fly-over” country is tired of being talked down to, ignored, and generally screwed over. These are but a few reasons why Trump was elected – we’re tired of the career politicians pandering for votes and not representing the interests of the American People. Ramming through Obamacare amid public opposition is but one example.
Perhaps this is what the political system has needed – an outsider to come along and shake things up. If Trump puts forth an agenda that is obviously for the American People, but the political elites of one or both parties block the agenda, fully expect the rise of third-party candidates to supplant the two main parties in power and support.
This is a short post for this week. Hopefully, I’ll be out of the food-coma by next weekend to post another one.
