Now that Election Day is upon us here in the United States, I will repeat what I wrote in this space months ago: Like it or not, Hillary Clinton will be our next president. Personally, I don’t like it, but I am an American and I accept the mandate of the majority, even when I find myself in the minority.
If you voted for Donald Trump, sorry, but every election has a winner and a loser. Those who backed the winner may feel smug or elated; those who backed the loser may be devastated. I say good for those who backed the winner; those who backed the loser will just have to get over it. We’ll all have to get used to it and get back down to business now that the dog and pony show is over. That’s how our democratic system of government works.
As for those who have vowed to relocate to Canada if Mr. Trump wins, I say do us all a favor and just leave now. The fact that he has lost this election has nothing to do with it. What if he had won? I say to those who are unable to accept the will of the people, to those who are unable to accept the election of the duly nominated standard bearer of one of the two major parties, that you are not only sore losers and crybabies, but also un-American. Those who can’t deal with our system of government when it doesn’t happen to go their way should do us all a favor and decamp for some other country that they think does it better.
Oh, and don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.
Tuesday is Election Day. Get out there and vote, folks (whoever you support).
