45

Well, we did it, we elected Donald Trump. Maybe it’s a good thing, I think so. But mostly because Hillary and her entitlement is so yesterday. In fact, maybe the day of dynasty in America has passed as well, Jeb didn’t do so well either. Something we’ll have to see about. Greg Gutfeld nailed a good bit of it here.

 

One of the more interesting things for me was that I ended up watching the election results on the BBC, there too it was a continuous broadcast until I gave up about 1:30 CST. What we do here is important. America is important to the world.

 

Winners:

Trump, of course. But strangely with the NY business dealmaker, who is somewhat reminiscent of a used car dealer, small town America won. It’s a potential victory at this point, but it could be a full on counterrevolution. Lots of work ahead, though.

See also: Brexit, and all the so-called right wing parties in Europe, this should give them hope as well. Again, America leads.

Losers:

Both political parties, maybe. They’ve both become too much of the Acela corridor.

Dynasties, as I said above.

And biggest loser of all: The old media, they threw off their cloak of objectivity, and while most of us said, “So, what’s new about that?” There were, I suspect, a lot of low information people who suddenly had a glass of cold water thrown in their faces.

A new day in America? Well, the sun came up in the east this morning, for the rest, it will be what ‘we, the people’ make of it. Because what really won yesterday, was America. Always new, always revolutionary, but the oldest continuous government in the world. On we go.

  1. I would myself not call this a time of losing for either of the American political parties, at least per se, but as a time of “change”. It’s time for both to learn and change, and the change is of course a return to the American Constitution and the American people (for the people, of the people, etc.), and to my mind the truth that there is a real interior aspect of humanity that can only come from God! If we in the West do not return here and with great truth and desire, we are simply doomed! But again, this is my opinion at least, but I always write as a Christian presbyter & pastor. To God be the Glory!

      I can buy that Fr Robert. How about failing in their present outlook, goes to that always revolutionary thing.

      • Indeed the best and real lasting “revolutionary thing” is always humanities interior and God given reality! “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Cor. 3: 17) Let us NOT fail here! (i.e. ‘In Christ’)

          God’s choice, I think. Nothing is going to be easy, but all is possible.

        • Amen! This verse comes to mind: “He saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding-garment? And he was speechless.” (Matt. 22: 12) Indeed always redemption & regeneration, and always GOD’s work!

        • Of course the more modern ESV translation hits it hard here: “And he said to him, Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment? And he was speechless.” Of course this is something of a parable, but with real spiritual aspect to one’s “marriage” or wedding feast in God, again a metaphor. And without this, “speechless” means this one did NOT belong!

    Yes I’m glad for Trump’s win. Now we get to be told why by pundits and leftists. I’ve already read old people “skewed” the vote in Florida and because of rural America.
    But I have a funny feeling. And question of what’s next? Funny that I wouldn’t have that with Hillary. I’d feel bad and know what’s next. 🙂
