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.
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.
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.
