Sorry kids, but sometimes you just don't get your way
Like all of you, I've been wondering what the hell is going on here. America had an election, a candidate was chosen, some folks voted for him, some folks didn't. This election has been debated, hashed, rehashed and argued about for a year now. Everything that could be said has been said, right? And at this point, this is where we all just accept the results and decide what to do next. Until this one.
There are lots of theories as to what the hell is wrong with these people. Are they Anarchists? Are they stupid? Are they trophy participation generation mindless skulls full of mush? I don't know. But I bet I'm not the only one that has actual family members mad at me for voting for President Elect Donald Trump.
I know most of us were around in 2008 when obama was elected. We felt much the same way. How could my country elect a radical godless left wing pseudo Marxist president who doesn't even like this country? We feared for the future of our country. And we were right about pretty much everything, which is why we have Donald Trump now.
So what did we do? Riot? Demand a do over? Cry and retreat to our safe spaces to play with coloring books and play dough? Hell no. We did what Americans have done for 240 years. We sucked it up, organized and started planning the revolution.
I was at the early organizing meeting of the TEA party. I was at that first TEA party, over in North Topeka across from the Post Office. And we grew from there. There was the 912 group. There were more TEA party groups. We organized, we learned. We blogged and we talked. We promoted candidates who supported our ideas. We opposed candidates who did not support our ideas. We got TEA party candidates elected to office. We became a political force in spite of the godless left wing media pronouncing us dead. The left was so scared of us George Soros funded an opposition group, the occupy, rape and vandalize stuff group. Which did exactly what you would expect them to do. Lots of drugs.
But the American electoral process remained intact. And eight years later, we rejected the godless left and elected a Republican. And sure, it took eight years, but here we are. And now we start undoing the damage they did.
I don't know what to tell these young folks. I've tried to reason with one of them, my family member and it's just surreal. There's no sense of understanding anything, just raw emotion. I heard a commentator describe them as emotional hemophiliacs. No reason, no rational thought. Just raw emotion. And all driven by a carefully crafted, well organized propaganda blitz by the godless left and the support of the media which is under their control.
I have voted for ten Presidents now. The first one was Richard Nixon. I've seen my guy lose, I've seen my guy win. I've seen joy and hope when Ronald Reagan was elected followed by some of America's best years. I've seen America sink to the moral gutter with Bill Clinton. I've seen a godless radial left winger the last eight years. But America is the strongest nation on earth. We may hit bumps along the way but we keep going.
So to our leftist friends who believe the country is on the path to certain destruction and their very lives are in danger, I say this. Quit crying. Quit whining. Nobody cares about your crazy talk. You're talking to each other. No riots or protests or petitions are going to overturn this election, or abolish the electoral college.
If you really believe you have better ideas, organize, promote your ideas and let America choose. But accept this time we chose to reject those ideas. We tried them. They didn't work. Now move on. This is getting embarrassing.
