To say I am disappointed would be an understatement. But I have been disappointed before. In my years I have seen many elections, winning some and losing some. Such is life. Dealing with this disappointment is always the issue.
morning, the day after, I heard a commentator say that America is
basically changing. I certainly agree.This is no longer the country of
my youth. Today two states have approved the legalization of marijuana.
Other states have approved same sex marriage. Illegal aliens are being
granted in-state college tuition instead of being deported. Some are
saying this is just the beginning of huge social changes facing this
country. It appears the majority favor these changes by their choices at
the ballot box.
told my grandchildren these changes will not affect me. They will
affect you and the other young people around you. The cost of these new
social phenomena will be borne by future generations and that cost is
not just in money. Morality changes will affect the future of this
country and to my mind, in a bad way. Time will indeed tell.
previous writings I stated clearly that after an Obama reelection, all
of the matters he has been delaying will surface. Sadly we will now see
what I meant. The true financial impact of Obamacare as well as its
detrimental effect on our health care system will soon be known. It will
not please me to be right. Several lawsuits are winding their way to
the Supreme Court and those outcomes will yet have an impact on
Obamacare. This law’s assault on religious freedom is appalling and we
still have an opportunity to fix it. Again, time will tell.
still amazes me is that even this morning the vast majority of those
polled believe this country is headed in the wrong direction and yet
they voted to continue that direction by their vote. The policies that
created our financial mess will continue and this mess is not going to
fix itself. Obama says that four years ago he inherited an economic
disaster. If he thought that was a problem, look at the disaster he
inherited with this election. Who will he blame this time? Only time
sat down at my computer this morning to help you deal with your
disappointment as well as dealing with my own. The sun will rise today
and tomorrow. Life will go on. I cannot honestly say this morning,
however, that our country, which is split down the middle, will recover
anytime soon. You can’t find your way out of the forest unless and until
you know you are lost. It would appear that at least half of our people
do not realize they are in trouble. They don’t know that they are lost
in the woods. I can only hope that we don’t have to sink too much
farther before this country wakes up.
is good news though. Today I believe as I always have, that idiocy has a
time limit. It cannot go on forever. Money and patience runs out. The
ideology which has caused our economic woes has a sell-by date.
Historically we have always come to our senses in time. Every four years
we have an opportunity to unscrew the mess. Will we fix it this time?
Only time will tell.
