The presidential election was held six weeks ago on November 8, 2016, and Donald Trump was elected to be the next President of the United States. His election shocked everyone, including Trump himself, because the main stream media was claiming that Hillary Clinton won the election long before most of the votes were cast. Americans, liberal and conservative, watched in awe as state after state went to Trump.
No sooner was the election called for Trump than large groups of protesters – encouraged by no other than Barack Obama - appeared in numerous cities. The protests were called “spontaneous” until knowledge spread that George Soros was paying them to dissent. The demonstrators turned into mobs and “peaceful marches” turned into riots. Private and public property was destroyed. The riots lasted several days until the protesters finally understood their protests were doing no good.
The objections came because Clinton won more than 2.6 million more votes than Trump. She won the “popular vote” while Trump won the electoral vote. Since only the electoral votes count, the popular vote means nothing. Calls went out to eliminate the Electoral College and elect Presidents on a purely popular vote. As it turns out, if a popular vote determined the President this election, the voters in California would have determined the President of the entire United States.
Liberals, both politicians and media and including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, continued to do everything they could to undermine Donald Trump. Recounts took place in several key states with hopes of finding more votes for Clinton and/or proving election fraud on the part of Republicans. The recounts did find voter fraud; however, it was on the part of Democrats.
Meanwhile, Republican members of the Electoral College were being inundated by emails, telephone calls, letters through the U.S. Postal Service, and even threats calling for the electors to break with their states and vote for anyone but Trump. Members of the Electoral College met in all fifty states as well as Washington, D.C. on Monday, December 19, 2016. There were voters who switched their votes, but most of them were Democrats choosing to vote for anyone but Clinton.
The vote by the Electoral College was the formal ending of the 2016 Presidential Election. With the exception of one or two dissensions, Republican electors voted for Trump, and he easily reached the 270 electoral votes needed and then added more votes. The results of the election will be certified by Congress on January 6, 2017, with the inauguration of a new President of the United States on January 20.
I thought the hatred would decrease when the election results were made known. It did not, and it might have even increased. I again thought it would decrease with the vote by the Electoral College. It might, but there are still pockets of venom that are poisoning our nation. I had to unfriend an associate on Facebook because she admitted that she would continue to spew hatred. After reading her explanation, I decided that I could no longer tolerate seeing her bitterness on my Facebook page.
No matter who we supported in the Primary or General Election, the people of the United States have selected a new President. If we do not like Trump, we should at least give him an opportunity to show that we chose wisely. If we made the wrong choice, then we need to do what we can to limit the damage he can do to our nation.
I did not support or vote for Barack Obama in either 2008 or 2012. I listened to what he said, and I believed him. He obviously did not like the United States, and he was going to do whatever he could to destroy the nation. As soon as the announcement was made that he was the new President and Democrats controlled both the Senate and the House, I was fearful. I knew that there was no one who could/would stop him.
The first real act of “fundamental change” was the government takeover of General Motors and Chrysler Motors. The shareholders lost their investments in the companies when Mr. Obama gave their shares to union members. Many Americans, including me, simply refused to purchase any vehicles made by “Government Motors.” The companies came very close to going under, and property values in Detroit went into free fall. People lost their jobs all over the nation, and the economy tanked.
I was stunned at the speed and depth of the government takeover of private property, and I realized the plans had been in place long before the election. About six months later I began writing this blog with hopes that I could be instrumental in keeping Mr. Obama from a second term as President. I was very discouraged when he won a second time, and I began preparing myself and hopefully others for some really difficult times.
Americans began to come to their senses and started voting for Republicans. Republicans took control of the U.S. House in 2010 and elected more Senators. In 2012 Republicans picked up more federal offices as well as state offices and legislatures. In 2014 Republicans took control of the Senate.
There was lots of talk about Clinton winning the White House and Democrats taking control of the Senate in 2016. It turned out to be only talk. I have renewed faith in my fellow Americans who voted to end the “fundamental transformation” of the United States by stopping the liberals once again. I have renewed hope that we can eliminate the power of the secret combinations that have control of our government and bring peace and prosperity to our nation once again. Please join me in praying for the great nation of the United States of America.
