Take a moment to ponder the hypocrisy of the angry demonstrators who think they lost something big last week. The Constitution and our free society honor their right to protest. They have the freedom to voice dissatisfaction after losing a completely legitimate election. What doesn’t make sense is why they would use this freedom to demand reforms that will make them slaves to government.
It began with a mean-spirited remark about Americans being deplorable. The reason? We were supporting Hillary Clinton’s opponent and she didn’t like it. Republican campaign rallies were disrupted. There were reports of violence. The trouble was pinned on conservative voters. The media stepped in. This week The Hill reported that we have proof of a coordinated effort by Democrats to create these incidents,1 but the damage is done.
I suspect a lot of people have made the decision not to vote this year. They don’t want to have anything to do with this election or our candidates, though I’m not sure why. There is a clear choice. One talks too much and the other doesn’t say enough. When it comes to policy one candidate wants to give away the farm and the other says he wants to take it back and make it better.
There is one absolute worst reason to vote for Trump. Ironically, it is also the best reason to support his candidacy: you are being told not to. As an American, being told not to vote for someone should make you really, really angry.
Everyone has turned on Trump. Democrats hate him. We expect that. Republicans fear and dislike him.
