So far, the first votes of the election season have been anything but stellar for the Republicans which leads me to wonder . . . Where were all the Republican voters that helped turn the tide on the Democrats in November 2016?
We still have a good many more state elections on list for 2018 and if the results continue with such a lack of enthusiasm on the part of the Republican voters we will face all the guaranteed promises of the Democrats listed above.
How soon the Republican voters seems to forget the joy the morning after voting November 2016. It was a pleasant surprise to the Republicans and, obviously, a horrible shock to the Democrats who believed what they wanted as that elections season progressed rather than recognize the snowball that was building momentum.
As we all know, from the moment the presidential votes were confirmed, it has been open season on Republicans and their elected choice for president. Given the turmoil, untruths perpetuated by the press, the grief of the Hollywood actors, and the subsequent verbal and physical attacks on anyone with some unapproved (by the left) bumper sticker or hat, you’d think the Republicans would have gathered forces to repeat their victory across the board again. Complacency just two years down the road from 2016 doesn’t bode well for the final election results of 2020.
Think about the previous eight years before the election of President Trump . . . Do you really want obama supported candidates to have a chance at our laws, our Constitution, and our freedoms, again?
Of course, we all remember the abuse we heaped on obama supporters the moment he was declared president and how it escalated into his second term of office . . . I think you might not recall that because the Republican voters respected the vote of the people, still maintained their love of this country, and went about coping with the next eight years. That is not to say that we didn’t loudly object to some rulings that came down through the eight years of the obama administration but we didn’t call for a national war on anyone that didn’t agree with the Republican viewpoint. Seems that Democrats are not quite so . . . democratic because it is getting to be a frequent event where some celebrity or even man on the street takes it upon him or herself to verbally or physically attack someone who doesn’t agree with the hillary loss but is happy with President Trump. During the election time, I saw so many hillary tee shirts and bumper stickers but can’t recall the news ever reporting someone screaming at someone or vandalizing a car because they bore such evidence of the person’s political leanings.
Somehow, being a rational person, I expected the outright hatred of President Trump would eventually dissipate as he has worked hard to defend and better America, thinking first of the needs of the American people. The following list should prove that Democrats are sore losers and feel that physical attacks, possible maiming, and vandalism is okay because their candidate lost. It is a sad day when grownups can’t act like mature grownups and even take to attacking 16-year olds trying to enjoy a meal in a restaurant.

One of the main concerns in the world today, are the children who are growing up without values, little needful education and a warped sense of what is right and wrong. There is a try to do unto before you are done to mentality which is wreaking havoc on our American way of life. In our pursuit of happiness, many are conveniently forgetting Who is blessing us with our gladness in life. The powers that be on earth are certainly not in line with the Power that is in Heaven.
An older person (who should have known better!) explained to me once that politicians have to please the majority in order to keep peace in the land. And, if the majority favors agendas that might be personally against the morals of the political leader, well then he or she will have to strive to keep his or her personal feelings out of it and govern with a compromised term of office. It is very much a contradiction when you consider “There is no power but from God.” yet many people translate authority to meet their desired way of life rather than using God’s Commandments.
The last few months have really brought to light the definitely skewed values that are held by so many people. The mentality seems to be that you should do your job and try not to get caught if you stray in any way with your personal life. Integrity doesn’t seem to have a place in many life styles and beliefs today. And anyone who is shocked at these seemingly sudden turn of events must have been sleeping the last couple of decades or so.
We now have laws in our land that sanction and even promote abortion for any reason. Euthanasia is no longer the stuff of science fiction novels. Partial birth abortions that result in total anguish and death for the unborn child is being fought over with the death squads winning. Marriage is an outmoded way of life and pro-creation is reduced from a God-given blessing to nothing more than pro-recreation thanks to the contraceptive mind set being cultivated.
The world is not a place to take at face value anymore. Simple trust is not feasible if you want to survive the spiritual holocaust that is feeding into our lives from all sides of our lives. Just perusing the morning newspaper reveals a climate that is, for the most part, incompatible with gaining the final glory of Heaven. The sad thing is that very few are being educated to care about this. And the future of the world depends on the education of the children of today.
I suppose you could read these mental wanderings of mine and find me rather pessimistic. Perhaps so, but take a moment to reflect. How many elected, political officials lack basic morality and integrity? How many laws have been passed that are in reality, incompatible with a basic, moral life? How many people overlook elementary yet essential values when voting in elections? How many Catholics are in this group?
Currently, we have been blessed with many good changes compliments of a President who cares about this country and not his popularity or pocketbook. President Trump gave up a private life of personal comfort and work to take on the problems besetting this country. The national news stations have turned into gossip columns with personal agendas they air as journalism. They suppress the good and emphasize the bad trying to make lies stick to the President and his administration. I hope more people are encouraged by the truths that are very evident and avoid the non newsworthy information the liberals spout and see the many good things that have happened since Election Day 2016.
Somewhat like the Civil War, the results of the Presidential election brought about a lot of arguing among friends, families, and religions. To this day, I keep a low profile when I go to Mass because there are still people who resent the fact that a pro-abort, planned parenthood supporter with a rather bad record of lies and deceptions didn’t win the presidency. Instead of a wait and see attitude of thoughtful people, they continue to bemoan the fact and ignore the facts . . . such as the list of accomplishments by President Trump among which there are ones many of us have been praying to happen for years.
*Reinstatement of the Mexico City Policy to prevent U.S. taxpayer dollars from funding abortion clinics oversea
*overturning the rule that forced states to fund abortion providers with taxpayer dollars
*appointing pro-life Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
*prohibiting the use of Title X funding any clinic that provides abortions
*defunding the United Nations Fund for Population and Development
*his pledge to fight for and sign a 20-week abortion ban bill.
Hillary Clinton is continuing her over a year-long hate tour on the subject of why President Trump stole the election from her. Of course, it has nothing to do with what she was promoting or the continued shadows of doubt covering her past and present actions. Nope, she didn’t take any of that into considering believing she was the best thing that could happen to the country and she had earned the right to be the first female present.
She went way out of bounds on her visit to India. In the year 2018, that she could claim such rampant white male chauvinism in declaring that said white males turned the election against her by forcing their wives, mothers, and sisters to vote for Trump . . . or else. Uh, or else what? What you tell someone your vote is, doesn’t mean that is actually where your vote went.
In addition to laying claim that white women are aided, abetted and forced to vote for the candidate of their choice rather than letting the woman decide her own vote is pretty weak. In some of my encounters, pre-election, I knew a lot of females who were asking that their husbands vote for Donald Trump.
Hillary Clinton seems to feel that challenging President Trump in the next presidential election will solidify her fan base and she will ultimately triumph. Seems to me that the voters spoke in 2016 and even with all the scheming, lies, and voter fraud, she still lost. Besides, I’m thinking the world has grown up more since 2016 and if they end up voting this woman into office after all, they will deserve what they get.
