I am indeed guilty of a lack of faith by questioning now-President Donald J. Trump’s potential to defeat not only Hillary Clinton in her egomaniacal quest for the White House but also the vast majority of the mainstream media, the “Washington Establishment” (both parties), most members of the “entitlement” voting block, government and civil unions, Democrats in general, and the Left in all its virulent and hysterical forms. Yup, he was not my first choice as a candidate and many questions for me continued to surface over his conduct and “Presidential-timbre”. But faced with the prospect of Hillary and Bill Clinton once again in a position to pillage and loot America I cast my vote in hope that a miracle was in store and our nation would have the opportunity to escape the ravages, restriction and ennui imposed over eight years of rule under an inept, anti-American miscreant.
I have never been so happy to be wrong in my evaluation.
It is alone worthwhile to relax and observe the nearly total demoralization of President Trump’s opponents, the caterwauling, weeping, gnashing of teeth, the other-worldly retreat into their hastily constructed cocoons while impotently lashing out with ludicrous accusations of everything from a Russian takeover of municipal voting machines to FBI collusion in plotting to defeat a poor, helpless victim of the ever-present “Right Wing Conspiracy”. Liberalism has been described as a “mental illness” and the reaction of so many of those apparently terrorized by the prospect of this new President really does indicate leanings in that direction.
For those with an open mind, and there are many of all political persuasions, races, religions and creeds, the general reaction appears to be “let’s give this guy a chance”. After all, he is a successful businessman and perhaps it is time to give a results-oriented individual the opportunity to solve some of the problems facing our country that the elites and the political class have ignored for so long in favor of advancing their own interests. President Trump has promised to steer government toward working for the best interests of the American people.
Perhaps the results of this latest election will truly result in the long-awaited “hope and change” that was promised and fecklessly abandoned eight long years ago.
Why not give him a chance?
