I never gave up hope. I was addicted to Fox News, Tivo became a way of life for me, roaring through the nightly news programs and picking our the people I wanted to hear.
My husband told me I was going ’round the bend and it didn’t even bother me.
I love History and have always been interested in Politics. I am far too impatient to have ever been a politician and I am not politically correct! I have no problem telling you where to put it if I don’t like where you’ve got it, but nicely.
I prayed Donald Trump would win this election. Sometimes on my walks I would say things like “God, I know you don’t care about our stupid politics but wouldn’t you like someone in there who would bring You back into our lives?” The art of the deal comes to mind.
I just kept thinking, People are fed up, they simply can’t keep doing the same things and looking for a different result. But, mostly, I worried about the people who would vote for a woman they knew accomplished nothing substantial in thirty years and constantly lied to us. A woman so paranoid she risked the Security of this Nation to hide her nefarious deeds.
I faltered, I couldn’t comprehend it. I justified in my mind they were voting for Bill. They were remembering the prosperous 90’s and forgot what the Clinton’s were really like, the corruption, the scandals, the suspicious disappearances, all forgotten. A man who had oral sex in the Oval office with a 20 year old intern, lied and was impeached, lost his law licence…how could they be so stupid! Bill had nothing to do with the prosperous 90’s, he was busy chasing the ladies, it was the dot com boom and Newt Gingrich and “the Contract for America” but people don’t do research, they have feelings and emotions and little actual data.
The night before the election my dear husband said to me, “Look, if Hillary wins it isn’t going to change our lives and we only have one vote each so worrying about it doesn’t matter.” I knew he was right, but it never was about us. It was about the country we are leaving to our grandchildren…we got ours and I want them to get theirs, to feel the power of success…the American Dream for themselves!
And then came the night of the election and after being glued to the television nightly, I couldn’t watch! I put on Netflix and watched “The Queen”. I love this country and had come to love Donald Trump, warts and all. Then my husband came into the room and said, “I think Trump is winning.”
And he did! The best is yet to come and Donald Trump with the smartest people in this country working with him will bring it. it’s on the way!
God Bless America!
