Everyone remembers the self-appointed hall monitor in school. The one who writes down names without being instructed to do so when the teacher leaves the room after telling everyone to be quiet.
The one who yells, “I’m telling!” The playground dictator that insists on reporting every alleged infraction of the rules.
This same person is always the first to cry loud and hard if fed any of his own medicine. He will yell about how it isn’t fair and everyone is mean. The person who tries very hard to make himself or herself feel important by making others unhappy.
Our society appears to have around 15,070,178 people who voted Democrat overall in the 2016 election.
While it would be unfair to say that the entire total would be super liberal, left leaning and intolerant of opinions other than their own, at least a good percentage could be considered in that category, although many that squeal the loudest have been outed as non-voters, such as the cast of Hamilton of whom many did not vote in this election or the one prior.
How did our society come to such a pass where one faction mandates how everyone around them are supposed to live and they will make life miserable and call names for those who disagree?
Then there is the recent controversy with the American Flag. Some are refusing to salute it, (ironically, some of those who have received the most benefit from the American way,) some are burning it and some have decided it is no longer relevant as Trump is just such a bad guy and the world is going to blow up as Hampshire College has decided.
It appears that the remaining 20,375,925 actual voters that voted for Republican candidates overall have made themselves heard in a big way, giving both the House and the Senate a majority.
The election wasn’t just an election; it was, to quote Judge Jeanine, “a revolution.”
So here is American today with the majority of people who hope for better jobs, more fiscal responsibility, more border security and enforcement and respect of the laws that exist on the books already.
It has to be called a majority because those who do not vote are outside of the process by their own choice and do not count.
When this majority is dissected, it would find working class Americans want the opportunity to have a decent paying job that they have made proper education and skill building preparations for and were banking on an economy that included manufacturing, and non-service related positions. These are people who feel that a minimum wage job is not a career choice nor validated for a fifteen dollar an hour wage.
These are the people who have gone from middle class to working poor in the last eight years. The same ones who have struggled to make ends meet while the food stamp and public assistance rolls have grown exponentially.
Those who are willing to let people live as they chose, but do not want the choices of others to be forced upon them by a court that is no longer interpreting law as is their duty, but trying to make law.
The numbers indicate that working Americans were fed up with a government for itself and by itself. A government that feels it knows more about what people needed rather than what they wanted in an elected official.
This election was decided by the People and for the People, or by those who chose to participate in the process.
The American Spirit was always one of rebellion and independence. The People will not allow any faction to dictate how individuals will live by bullying and name calling.
It is time for the tattletales and whiners to buck up and take it. Grow up and get a life that includes a job and start paying your own way. Once this happens, the election results will finally be understandable.
