Just a Few Words

Just a few words and then no more, life will go on as it always does.  The election is over, I did not vote for Trump, but many people I know and respect did.  Good people who thought long and hard about their vote.  Let's stop demonizing them, they aren't evil bigots who suddenly decided they hated minorities, gays, women, etc.  They're people who get up every day, go to work, raise their families and hope for a better future for them.
A good friend who is a minister's wife had said that she couldn't vote for Hillary because she supports abortion, for that she lost friends.
Aren't we allowed to be different and have different opinions any more?
It's time to move on and do the best that we can.
That's my few words.

  3. America has voted, I imagine it will be a time of great change but hopefully by working together it will lead to a better future.

  4. I couldn't bring myself to vote for either candidate, so chose a write-in option, even knowing it wouldn't carry much weight.
    This election year has been very polarizing.

    1. If I had lived in another state I would have done the same. I didn't want either one.

  5. I have just watched an item on the news showing protesters, mostly in their 20s, shouting about the result and how they want it changed. Then an older man spoke about the protesters, saying that they are protesting against democracy ...... but that seems to be the way thins happen now. We have been going through it for several months since the "Brexit" vote - the losing side have gone to the courts to try to get the result overturned.

  7. It was a democratic decision and if one supports the system then it has winners and losers.

  10. What a great post, well done !
    Can you believe the protesters in the street ? They don't think Trump is their President. Well sorry he is your president. There have been so many Presidents I did not vote for and didn't want. But for 4 years they was my President till I could try to vote them out.
    Tough, grow up and understand this is the way the vote goes. What a huge bunch of whining little poos.

    cheers, parsnip


    Oh and I didn't vote for either.

  16. I just wish that we could find a fairer way to elect our leaders. I'm not sure what it would be, but there must be something that would avoid situations where the loser had more votes than the winner.

  17. That's democracy, there'll always be people who aren't happy no matter what the result, it's just a case now of hoping for the best.

  18. It is so sad that there has been so much division and disrespect between people and even families. Both in the USA and here in the UK the results are what they are and our communities have to come together with mutual respect, love and understanding.

  19. Well said.
    How bizarre that those that protest are protesting against democracy. We have seen it in the UK too re Brexit.
    A scary world we live in...
    Kind regards
