This is not the normal sort of post that I would write.
While a am very opinionated as far as politics goes, it is a subject that I tend to stay away from because it tends to be divisive.
Also, I experienced something ten years ago that made me realize that politics can be to personal.
I tend to put politics in the arena of logic, the cerebral and debate, but I have realized that many people make politics a matter of the heart.
Let us take for instance the amount of crying that has gone on since the victory of Donald Trump over his rival Hillary Clinton
It's true that we are all disappointed when our candidate loses, but while it is a matter of sadness for a day or so, there really is a time to put on your grown up pants and get on with life.
Here is what I would like all of you sad people to do. I would like you to sit down for an hour or two with a copy of the constitution of the United States of America. It's not a terribly long document, but it has genius in it that might relieve your suffering.
Here is the preamble:
(Just a note, this Christian conservative has memorized it)
We the people, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity, to ordain and establish this constitution of the United States of America.
Please read the rest of this valuable and genius document.
It allows for the PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER!
This is something almost unheard of for most of history. (You should read world history too).
The whole of Europe followed suit with this kind of government, most African nations, almost the whole of South America, some of Asia, Australia, and Canada.
In short I would like to say, YOU WILL GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO TAKE POWER IN FOUR YEARS! IN CONGRESS IT WILL ONLY BE TWO YEARS!
So stop your whining, get educated, and thank God that the people who created the incredible document that allows for this.
No worries about us having a female president either. It will happen, it just has to be the right woman.
I'm thinking me.
