Sometimes one spends so much time dreading the lawlessness of government, recognizing the level of destitution, fiscal and legal, that it represents, that somewhere the alternative fails to register on the mind. This is the condition I find myself tonight. Donald Trump was elected President of the United States and whatever might come is hard to decipher, except that at least I know he believes in America and the people who live all across the nation who stood up for him and the rule of law.
Democratic pundits have been spending every second with veiled threats and recriminations. They are stunned. They felt that the illegal votes would put them over the threshold, but they didn't. There are still many, many people in this nation who recognized a chance to defeat the criminal enterprise that threatened this nation and they gave the presidency to Donald Trump.
What we have to fear is the tantrum to be thrown by the current resident of that office. That I can imagine his defiant refusal to give up the office without doing inestimable damage to it is a stain in and of itself. I have had eight years to witness his childish reactions to disobedience to think any better of him. So, we wait to see what his reaction will be, how much damage he is able to inflict? His choice as a Supreme Court justice just went out the window.
But, I also look forward to the power of commerce that might be unleashed. I don't know what metamorphosis might take place between tonight and January 20, but one thing I do think Trump knows how to do and that is to get the American commercial engine reignited. Hopefully, he will be true to his word and rid us of this "green" economy that has, in fact, stalled and hindered all proven means of production. I would hope for a reduction of regulations on business and a restructuring of the IRS, but perhaps that is a wish too many.
There are some smart things he could do without too much effort that would do a great deal for industry and I believe he will do those things, but make no mistake, it is not government I want from him and it was not more government that all of those people came out to vote for him want.
In short, if he would just take the brakes off and stop punishing the producers of this nation, that would be enough.
Trump is not the answer to anything. He not a solution. He is a respite at best. All of the important things are still in place. All of the violations of rights and the surveillance government continue. The media is still hates most of those who voted for him. His ability to select a good Supreme Court justice is still in question. We have been given a few more months to prep and train and learn. He cannot solve the debt issues, or the fact that we still have enemies.
We are in a lot of trouble, but for tonight I can sleep without the knowledge that Clinton will bring her corrupt and evil plans to the Oval Office. One night of peace, I suppose and worry about the rest tomorrow.
