The left SCREAMS the merits of diversity and how we are all better for it. What they truly mean is that diversity is acceptable and good for the country when it is diversity in name only and diversity they believe to be beneficial. Have a viewpoint or belief that varies from their agenda of diversity and suddenly diversity of thought is evil, dangerous, and unacceptable for the country as a whole.
The Electoral College exists for a very valid reason and is working as intended. The cities and states with the largest population should not be able to dictate the politics for the rest of the nation. Popular vote does not mean that the most ‘popular” candidate won, it means that the states with the largest concentration of population overwhelms and overrules states with sparser population. Popular vote means that those in the center of the country would always be ignored.
The protests over election results are just petty and childish. Just because your candidate lost you have zero right to demand that the winning candidate be ejected from office. You have the right to voice your displeasure and fears but you do not have the Constitutional right to demand that your voice and candidate be installed in office instead.
Had Hillary Clinton won and Trump supporters taken to the streets demanding change, the left would be up in arms (well not literally since they want to take away everyone’s guns) pontificating on how childish, racist, misogynistic, mean spirited, and elitists those protestors were. Trump supporters, for the most part, sit home and just quietly laugh at the protestors and moan their incivility and pettiness. There have been a couple of bad actors scattered here and there but they are the exception not the rule.
As to all of those Hillary supporters that feel scared and are in tears, I’m sorry but good. No seriously, I’m not going to apologize for saying it. The left has been stopping on the religious liberty of every citizen for decades and we are tired of it. Your sexual preference is no one’s business and to be honest, we could care flipping less what you do behind closed doors. My religious liberties are Constitutionally protected rights that have been trampled under the banner of diversity. Why does the left of the political spectrum feel free to tamper with one of the world’s major religions? Why does my faith and Church need to be targeted by the Democratic Party for change? Sorry Democrats but my faith and Church are not subject to tampering to fit your social agenda. I, my Church, my faith, and others of religious belief are not “backward” because we hold different beliefs than you and we will not tolerate change from the outside to suit your political purposes.
Want to know why Hillary Clinton lost the election? Look in the mirror, Hillary and every one of her supporters. Stop blaming others for your failures and look at yourselves. Forcing your left leaning agenda down the throats of everyone that does not share your beliefs backfires. Your tax and spend policies that take money from those that earn it and redistribute it to those that have not backfired as well. Your continual attempts to erode Constitutionally protected rights and freedoms has backfired. Your attempt at forcing healthcare on the country has been filled with lies and has backfired.
The country is more than just the leftist elites that live on the two coasts. The middle of the country fuels this nation and no longer will we sit silently and be ignored. We grow your food, harvest your crops, make your cars, manufacturer your goods, and everything else in between. We are tired of the left shoving their agenda down our throats without regard to our concerns, beliefs, needs, and voices. We will no longer allow the left to be the sole voice that is heard in universities, schools, Congress, or the world.
We could care less who or what you make love to behind closed doors. We don’t care what color your skin is. We don’t care who you worship. We care about the country as a nation. We demand that the money we work so hard to earn stays in our communities to be spent as we see fit. We demand not to be taxed to support programs and policies that are offensive and abhorrent to us. We are the silent majority that may not have the population numbers of the coasts combined but we will no longer be ignored and stomped upon.
We are democrats, republicans, liberal, conservative, libertarians, white, black, red, straight, gay, religious, non-religious, educated, farmers, we wear blue and white collars. We vote from the middle with our hard earned paychecks. We vote for the candidate and party least likely to steal our money for policies and programs we find abhorrent and objectionable.
So, feel free to continue protesting like the sore and petty losers you are. The rest of us pity you and know we will no longer tolerate being treated like an adult relegated to the children’s table at dinner time. Hold up a mirror and realize you, your political agenda, and policies of your political affiliation is responsible for the predicament you feel you find yourselves in currently. It’s time to decide if you are an American or not? If not, I hear Canada and Mexico are willing to shelter you and your ilk. Don’t let the proverbial door hit your ass on the way out!
