That election we've been building to finally has happened.
& as expected, its the day after & people are angry & upset.
It only takes common sense to know that there was going to be a side that wasn't happy. I mean, the divide is so intense & it seems right down the middle, so you can figure that nearly half of the US is mad this morning.
If Hillary did indeed win, it would still be half of the US upset this morning.
I know there are two things in life you aren't supposed to talk about - religion & politics.
& while I do talk about God alot, I dont talk about religion. I hate religion. It divides & causes wars.
.... & I guess same can be said about politics.
I grew up in a house where voting was HUGE... (you know you all said it in the Trump voice)...
but it was made a big deal. But politics wasn't pushed on me. I was never told who I had to vote for, but that it was my right as a US citizen & I need to take advantage of that.
I dont think my whole life, my parents have asked me who I voted for. It was my vote all on my own.
So even now, I'm not one of those people who put out there who I vote for.
Mainly because I'm also the person who sees both sides. I'm like that in every situation in life.
It's funny because I took that test online to find out what political party best suited me.... it brought me up as a centralist. Which I didn't even know existed. But that perfectly describes me in 99.9% of the issues in life.
I stayed up late last night to watch the results. Amazed at it really.
Watched as reporters & commentators choked on their words & actually was speechless at moments.
One channel's reporter even insulting people who had voted for Trump.
& watched as Clinton's people realized that she wasn't going to win.
It was history in the making & I sat in amazement of it all.
I just have to say, I see a lot of people saying cruel things about other people that voted for another party than the one you like (this is both sides)... but I honestly think this election is bigger than the people that ran.
Big Supreme Court seats are open.
Terrorism is terrifying.
Gun control is a hot topic.
Health care has gone so far down, I can't even talk enough about that topic without my blood pressure shooting up ... & then I dont have good insurance to get that checked.
I think people voted looking at the bigger picture. Not necessarily the person.
The way it should be really.
But we made it.
We survived this election.
An election that proved that anyone can run for President.
If Hillary won - it would have been amazing & so empowering to see a woman in office.
With Trump winning - we see you need obviously no political experience whatsoever to run a country.
... which honestly blows my mind. Its going to be interesting to see who runs for President in every year.
Maybe Kanye isn't too crazy an candidate after all?...nahhhhh...
... but I also said that about Trump when he put his foot in the race.
Ya Nev'r Know!!!
|haha!!! ... that these pictures are out there is funny... & terrifying!|
Today, let's all try to be nice to each other.
We need each other - to get through the next 4 years - to get through every day really.
& let's be thankful that we do have a country where we have a voice in the form of a vote.
Let's try to be understanding when the voice that has spoken isn't one that may not be for your side.
That is really all the power of America...
& today, I'm ordering you all to go to YouTube & put on some videos of puppies or people falling down & just laugh. Lighten your soul today.
