So Donald Trump is President-Elect the electoral college has done their job. Some are protesting and very upset that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, this has happened previously and the electoral college always wins. It’s a done deal and there is nothing anyone can do about this now. The protesting is fine as long as it’s kept civil. Burning flags, breaking windows, and looting is beyond ridiculous and needs to stop. These riots are not the opinion of the majority of the Democrat party, liberals, and anyone who voted for Hillary or against Trump. Regardless of what people say, it’s not liberals doing this it’s the uneducated animals that wanted an excuse to riot. The country is in turmoil over this election and it would be regardless of who won the Presidency. We were given 4 choices and technically only 2 if you know anything about politics. This in itself is not fair to the American people. Donald Trump has begun picking his cabinet and that should be the main topic of discussion everywhere.
Protesting peacefully I can get behind, although I do not protest because rarely does it solve anything and nothing good usually comes out of it. Many are not happy with the election results of Trump winning. On the other side, many were not happy with President Obama winning. So the people complaining that the liberals are babies, and crying have no cause since the exact same thing has happened by Conservatives. Donald Trump also had a lot to say on twitter that reminds me of child-like mentality. Protesting is an American right as long as it is done peacefully and without violence this shouldn’t be a problem with anyone. The rioting is uncalled for and just an excuse to act like animals all races are doing this and it needs to stop. There is no good that can come from that. Although, it has only been happening in Oregon of all places.
In the US there are only two parties that are prevalent is something that everyone should be fighting against. I may be considered a liberal, but I do not believe everything the liberal/democratic party believe in. We should be able to have multiple parties with a wide range of opinions in congress. As far as party lines go Republicans and Democrats may have different opinions in many cases, but they all get money from the same lobbyists. It’s pretty disgusting and until that stops nothing in this country will truly be fair. Of course collecting money from lobbyists does not mean the politician agree with what these lobbyists are saying, but 9 times out of 10 they do what they are asking. They want that money to continue to roll in. Donald Trump has said he wants to take money out of politics, but considering his cabinet picks thus far, nothing could be further from the truth.
According to many sources he has picked a white supremacist as his chief strategist Stephen Bannon. Exactly what does that say to the American people? Does he want to start or continue a race war? Lets face it during Donald Trumps campaign he said some pretty hateful things toward minorities, women, and Muslims. Still he won the election for President of the United States. It goes to show how the country feels about things. 48% of registered voters did not vote! It makes sense since many didn’t like either of the two running, but this is what you get when you don’t vote. A non vote shows you do not care who is running the country. Now I don’t like Hillary Clinton either, but I voted for her for the simple fact I was terrified Donald Trump would win. My vote in general doesn’t count for much since I live in Texas which is a big Republican state. Either way my conscious wouldn’t allow me not to vote. Many should have felt the same way. The election was not just about the Presidency it was also about some congressional seats. The Republicans have all of the branches of government as soon as Trump picks a Supreme Court Justice. This is unacceptable! Please get out and vote during the next election. If not for yourself for future generations.
If I was a Trump supporter I would be livid. It has been a week since the election and already he has doubled down on what he claims he was going to do. He said that he was going to get rid of the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) yet he has already said he was going to adjust it. Donald Trump had some big talk against the establishment, yet his choices of his cabinet thus far have been mainly establishment picks. This is just the beginning, Republicans may hold all branches of government but they surely wont let him do most of the things he claimed he would get done. They will not like the term limits and will surely not let that pass. After all these career politicians are mainly Republicans.
Donald Trump will be our President for the next four years. I am hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. Many things will be changing you can bet on that. Many have claimed the last time Republicans controlled congress and the Presidency was 1928, this is completely false. The last time George W Bush was in office and everyone knows just how well that went. Expect another financial crisis, that you can bet on. D0nald Trump wants to lower taxes for everyone, but has yet to talk about any cuts. This will crash our economy. Say what you will about President Obama, but since he was handed the Presidency he has fixed so many things the Republicans screwed up. If we learned anything from Reagan, trickle down economics just does not work. I rarely pray, but today and for the next four years I will be praying for our country and the future of my children.
If you want change in this country voting for someone like Donald Trump will not be the way to do it. Voting is only half of it, you have the right to speak or write to your congressman. If you don’t believe in something the only thing we as Americans can do is stand together. The violence and racial tension in this country is only going to get worse. Everything seems to be getting worse. If you watch or read the news you see it. Monsters killing their children, people killing police men and women, the police killing citizens, rapists getting 2 years in jail, the list goes on. It’s sad and horrifying how violence seems to be a normal thing in the United States. We can do something about it, but only if we stand together. Republicans, Democrats, Christians, Muslims, Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians, Gays, Transvestites, Pro Choice, Pro Life, everyone can stand together. We as Americans choose to separate ourselves based on our beliefs. I’m quite sure everyone thinks killing and violence is wrong. Peace is what is needed in this country. As far as I’m concerned voting for Donald Trump was against everything we as Americans stand for (or are supposed to stand for). It’s heartbreaking. If something isn’t done now, this will only get worse.
