NOW THAT TRUMP WON: A Conservative Father’s Letter to His Daughters

Written by Michael Cummings on November 19, 2016

My Dear Cummings Daughters,

When Donald Trump won the election earlier this month, I knew the Left would be upset. What I could not have predicted was the adolescent wailing and gnashing of teeth that took place over the course of a few days, and continues today. Insufferable prigs like reporter Dana Millbank and Hollywood elite Aaron Sorkin wrote letters to their daughters about the election, so I write this to you because I believe you deserve truth, and a bit of snark.

When Barack Obama won in 2008, I was shocked. That someone who had precious little experience to be in a position so important, who constantly berated Americans for being racist and intolerant, and someone who wanted to fundamentally transform our great nation (which could only mean he didn’t like the current iteration) — that he could earn the votes of so many, I learned I did not know my countrymen.

Like so many freedom-loving Americans, I witnessed what Obama had desecrated in four years, and feared what he would do with four more. We saw so much corruption, so many broken promises, more taxes and regulations, a destructive health care law no Republican voted for, and no accountability for the multiple laws that seemed to have been broken virtually every day. US presidents shouldn’t affect American lives so directly, yet the pervasiveness of the Obama rot seemed to attach itself to our lives like spoiled leftovers.

So when Hillary Clinton stepped up to give the presidency another shot, we all knew if she were to be voted into the White House, she would no doubt advance every cause Barack Obama had started, and more. More taxes and regulations, additional foreign policy fires raging throughout the Middle East, a runaway train of a health care law that careened toward single payer, and massive, verifiable corruption on a level America has never seen. Had Hillary Clinton won the election, her immediate and pre-inauguration pardon by Barack Obama would have set the scene for our next four years and beyond: A political, social, economic, and cultural darkness settling into America’s bones.

Thank God she didn’t win. The last of my chosen candidates, Donald Trump did win. I voted for him not because I thought he was a good candidate or the person to help lead our great country away from the last two terms, but only as damage control against Clinton, and to give us a little breathing room to set a new course. While the Trump transition continues as of this writing, there are reasons to be optimistic – but I won’t list them now.

What I want to tell you is America needs your prayers every day. I also warn you not to trust the media, for it has shown itself to be Leftists first and Americans sec– well, frankly, I don’t know where they put the USA on their list. Just remember they do not care about truth, justice, and the American way. They care only about winning elections, and imitating a crumbling Europe.

Seek God, his Son Jesus, and traditional, American values. Don’t forget to clean your rooms, be good to each other and respectful to your mother, and grateful that you live in the greatest country the world will ever know.
