Election Day 2016

This is it.  Today is election day.  Will today spell a new beginning for the country, moving it in a positive direction for the first time in a decade?   Will we let a real leader who will ‘Make America Great Again’ take charge?

Will today be the beginning of the end of the nation?  Will we be a nation electing someone who believes the founders were ‘flawed’ and that pesky document , the Constitution, should be changed through an activist court?  Will we turn it over to the ‘evil screecher’ who will sell every nook and cranny of America…at least the areas that she hasn’t already sold?

I am still holding hope that Americans actually think about issues and aren’t swayed by one-liners and hidden recordings.  Unfortunately, with the average attention span of Americans toward politics, one liners work.  The sad part is the duped ‘I’m female so I’m voting for Hillary because she’s a woman’ electorate.  The people who are voting for the ‘first woman’ title without giving a shit about the ramifications of putting a corrupt criminal in charge of the country.  Duped because the Dem. Party elite will be laughing at them, knowing the ‘Hillary’ they are electing is just a temporary formality soon to be removed from office for her crimes or collapsing from her hidden illnesses.

It has been an amazing adventure.  It truly shows an America that is ready for change when someone is continuously attacked by almost all of the elite media, every progressive activist and billionaire in the world, the entire Democratic machine, the entire Clinton machine, many ideological purists in his own party, and the upper elite of his own party who doesn’t want to relinquish their iron grip on their constituency and still maintains a position within striking distance of victory.  That shows what real people want.  It shows what Americans really want.  It’s shows that there is a large group of Americans who care about real issues.

Let’s see what happens.  Let the wild ride of election day begin!!!
