And I am glad of it.
A campaign season tooooo long and exhausting. However, though there will be the usual detractors…..the American People Have Spoken. And a huge chunk of Americans…who have been ignored, neglected and demonized by the Elites of all stripes….the American Working Class made up of all races… have had enough. The Rust Belt who saw their jobs whipped overseas and the cities and towns who have fallen into despair are silent no longer.
People will say that we are divided more than ever, but a very large mass of Americans obviously have come together and have shown a unity that is greater than before.
Hopefully their trust is not misplaced. To me, both despicable candidates, but others felt different. And that is the essence of our nation: The freedom to think differently and to hold forth on their views.
