I’m not sure if you know it, but everyone involved in the presidential election race are directly to blame or credit for Donald Trump becoming elected to be our next President.
When Donald Trump came on the scene saying he wants to run for President, I thought it was a pretty cool idea. Then he started spouting off about one thing or another through these last few months, to the point that there is a large segment of our population that calls Donald Trump a racist, a bigot, a fascist and a sexual predator… and the list goes on. The angry and happy tirades about the election results go to quite the extremes, with people calling or referring to the states that helped Trump win, some rather vile names.
There’s even a “social media movement” for California to secede from the United States.
Yet what’s done is done.
The system that we have installed in our country, the one we accept to do its job for us, has spoken, and that system has declared Trump our new President.
Think about that for a moment. The system we approved of, elected the next President. And every single one of us is to blame, no matter who you voted for because of our complacency about the system.
The Distraction of Facebook and Social Media
For the last several weeks social media was enraged with bashing one party of the other. People venting with memes of Trump or Clinton, labelled with text about their evil ways. It was getting pretty disappointing how empowered people felt, to post their angst on social media.
But while people spent a ton of energy venting about their concerns, no one stood up and started a movement. No one started forming a cohesive group to take action with. Instead, folks vented about what scared or worried them.
There were those that did not, in any way, want to vote for Clinton, so they took the other route. And same could be said for Trump.
If half these distraught folks actually took action in formulating a plan and getting the support of like-minded people to agree on and focus on a similar goal among themselves, to say, write in Bernie Sanders name instead of voting for the lesser evil as they saw it, who do you think might have been voted into office then?
Instead, millions went to the poles with no plan, just hope, hope that their vote would matter. And when an army goes into battle without a tactic, they will always loose.
Reality TV Is Where It’s At
Instead of a cohesive group plan, millions of people just voted, hoping it would be enough. And to be honest, it was great to see so many people actually turn out at the polling locations.
