So, We Had an Election...

You know Trump was most certainly NOT my first choice as a presidential candidate.  That being said, I'm quite relieved (happy, even!) that Mrs. Clinton is not going to be our first female president.  Eight years of Obama and friends was quite enough, thankyouverymuch.

I shouldn't be, but I'm really VERY surprised by the immature and (dare I say?) hateful behaviour of many of my liberal friends toward anyone and everyone who would vote for Trump.  For my part, I would never assume any of my liberal friends who voted for Clinton really thought she was all that great, and I most certainly would never ascribe every word she says and every character attribute she has to them had she won. Yet that's precisely what I see many of my (perhaps former) liberal friends doing with Trump and his supporters. 

Whatever happened to taking the high road and losing gracefully?  I'm pleasantly surprised to see that that is exactly how Mrs. Clinton and President Obama are behaving, with class and dignity.

Just so you know, it's my blog.  You already know exactly how I feel about Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton, so no political comments on this post please.  Not here and not today.  Today, please say something kind or say nothing because I will delete any rancorous comments or... well?  Anything I feel even might stir up drama... thanks for respecting all your fellow commenters.  God bless xx

  3. Ha! It seems half my FB feed is exuberant and the other half is utterly devastated. It's very sad people are "unfriending" each other. I was very impressed by the show of grace and strength Clinton displayed in her concession speech...even my eyes were watering.

    1. Come to think of it, unfriending is better than meanness in "friendship" though.

    2. Bethany, I remember that Trump is the only candidate you could NOT get to pose with you! Sort of funny/sad in retrospect.

      I also appreciated Clinton's speech for the most part.

    3. My sister got a decent photo with Trump...plus I got autographs, so I'm happy. But yeah, we were worried if we missed a photo with one candidate (s)he would be the one to get elected. :D

  4. I'm shocked at these protest and even the flag burning. A generation ago if someone had burned the flag they would have been put in jail.


    The strength America is that we are supposed to accept election results without having revolution, and people who don't like it still need to accept the results and wait for the next election.

    1. Hello, Unknown! Certainly most Republicans accepted the election results for the past eight years and now it's the Democrats' turn.

      I do understand the disappointment or anger that these were our choices. All the more reason to get out during the PRIMARIES. I can assure you I voted for neither candidate in the primaries. Otherwise, perhaps we should all of us have gotten along better under President Rand Paul. :)

  5. Silly to get vindictive over either party, you never really know how things will turn out. It's very much a wait and see game.
