Tuesday, November 8, I could only think about how happy I was. I could not believe what had happened or how happy I was that it had happened. As you can only guess it was the final numbers, states, votes of the 2016 presidential election that was the source of my elation. I was alone when my daughter in Anchorage who was following along with me as each Florida county reported in said, “aw gee, I wish there was a election return party I could go to”. About that time, I got a text from the District Chairman that read “Are you coming over?”. I texted back, “Am on my way will be there shortly”. — And I was there to celebrate with other joyous Republicans in the after math of almost the greatest happening since the election of Ronald Regan.
When I awoke on Wednesday November 9, my first thought was to recall how I had felt first thing every morning since this day in 2008. That morning I could not believe who or what had been elected as president. And every day since has been the same way. I relied daily on Matt Drudge to reveal what kind of dog pile had been dropped by the White House from a group of academicians with no consideration for other parts of the world, least of all for the many Americans living outside the beltway, or even whether there were Americans living outside the beltway
This past week has further clarified that election in 2008. All of those days since 2008, I felt all those thing we are hearing from college students and protesters, but I never took signs to the street demanding the electoral college concept be ended or beat up on people who voted for the winner. There were many people around me who could not believe this individual had been elected. Again, there were no protests or supporters beaten around where I live. But I will admit that I was derogatory toward the person elected in 2008, and I refused to acknowledge him as my president. My refusal to recognize him as president was based solely on my determination of his shortcomings. Those shortcomings had nothing to do with the color or his skin.
Each passing week since November 9, 2008, there have been actions on the part of the elite Washington establishment that have been devised solely toward the destruction of this country, and with each week the destructive nature of the “change of 2008” has become more and more evident. The change I wanted to see, if it was going to happen, was not racist, xenophobic, or anything else; it truly was a change to the restoration of traditional family value and patriotic values of our founding fathers.
So I was surprised and disappointed to hear and see acted out the accusations of these current protestors and college students. They talk of feelings of abandonment, homelessness and fear; and at the same time they are unilaterally accepting of dishonesty, corruption and continual deceit by the candidate representing the democratic party.
