My "Takeaway" from this Election...

Whenever something of historical significance happens, I try to learn something from it. Here’s my “takeaway” from this election:

#1) You can’t believe what the media tells you. You MUST do your own research. In short, modern media sucks.

The media was so overwhelmingly biased in this election, I didn’t recognize my own country. 
I felt like I was living in a fascist society, because the media coverage was complete propaganda. 

Moreover, the media only reported HALF of all relevant news. They focused ad-nauseam on Anti-Trump smear snippets, while ignoring important issues.

The media had Americans completely convinced that Donald Trump had no chance at victory… and obviously, in hindsight, nothing was further from the case.

Ideally, the media is supposed to report facts only, and omit their personal opinions. That’s how newspapers and television stations operated, when I was a kid. Our media has gone right down the crapper.

#2) Celebrities can suck my left nut.

For some fucked-up reason, Hollywood personalities (actors, actresses, musicians, comedians, talk show hosts, etc) have convinced themselves, that their vote (and political opinions) are more important, than anyone else’s.

The election is OVER… and these crazy celebrities STILL believe, that if they kick and scream long enough, they can STILL change the outcome.

Here’s a newsflash for Bruce Springsteen, Robert Deniro, Bill Maher, Rachel Maddow, Lady Gaga, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Amy Schumer, the entire cast of “The View”… and all the others:
MY political opinion is JUST as important as yours! MY vote is JUST as important as yours! So please, go fuck yourself.  Have a BIG piece of humble pie on me…and get lost already.

It brings me great joy to know, that the “common man” proved beyond any doubt, that their vote (and opinion) matters!

#3) The pundits, celebrities, and Democrats underestimated (and overlooked) several key groups.

For starters… senior citizens. Do they realize how many people in this country are over 65? (Roughly 45 million people, or 15% of the population)

Secondly… the folks in rural areas. Evidently, only city dwellers count. 

And last but not least… they underestimated the political clout of Catholics, Christians and Evangelicals… because hey… they’re all just antiquated jackasses right???? "Extremely backward" right???

#4) Money can’t buy everything.

BILLIONS of dollars in dirty money was thrown behind Hillary Clinton… and all for naught.

George Soros, the “Super Pacs”, and “special interests” threw insane amounts of money down the tubes.

It brings me great joy to know, that all the dirty money in the world, couldn’t buy a US election (this time around)…

Evidently, all that money, celebrity backing, and media propaganda, just wasn’t enough leverage to convince Americans that a poor candidate was a smart choice.

As my Portuguese friend often says:
"You can’t make chicken salad out of chicken shit, no matter how much mayonnaise you use".

#5) In closing, I’d just like to say, that I’m proud of the American people.

Americans invested the time and effort necessary, to research the facts for themselves.

Americans were not deterred by the constant barrage of media propaganda.

Americans weren’t brainwashed by the countless celebrities who tried to discourage independent thinking.

 Americans proved, that money can’t buy everything.

And most importantly… Americans proved that ANYTHING is possible with God.

Maybe when we become “One nation under God” again, good things will start happening for us.

As Mike Pence said it best (while defending unborn children):
"You can judge a society, by how it treats it’s most vulnerable".

EXCELLENT post! You should send that to the newspapers!

Well said Lynyrd! I think the Democrats had all taken of big sip of "I think I'm better than everybody else and I can get away with anything" and that big cup was splashed in their faces. They found out that they don't "own the world".

And the media was ruthless toward Trump. I expect they'll cut back on all the derogatory comments.

This is the first time in 8 years that I've looked forward to an Inauguration. That will be a good day for a change!!

I loved it when he said that he didn't need any celebrities to endorse him (although he had some, of course), he didn't need to parade them around. He had the people that counts--NORMAL, hard-working, every day us!!

That's true Venus!

Aware said...

The American people voted for Hilliary, votes were cast, counted and verified. The electoral college elected the new President. So, your point is wrong.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Hello Aware,

Evidently, you don't understand how our election process works...

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

It's funny how the Democrats were campaigning very hard in the "swing states" (just like the Republicans), and eagerly watching the electoral map (while the votes were being counted) just like everyone else.
And now, because their candidate lost, they're harping about the "popular vote". Lmao

The Democrats knew the rules of the game beforehand. You can't change the rules of the game, after the game is over.

The Democrat's behavior following this election (poor sportsmanship) only validates my decision to vote Republican.

katie8753 said...

Aware you need to go back to Government 101. The Electoral College is the deciding vote. Hillary didn't get it. Trump did. That's why he's now the President of the United States.

Hillary Clinton is a career criminal. She's been under investigation since the 1990's with her career criminal husband Bill. They always "skink" away because they blackmail and threaten people.

The Director of the FBI announced days before the election that he was investigating her illegal e-mail activities, and due to the tremendous pressure of the DNC, the Justice Department and the Clintons to "shut up about it", he did. That was more leverage to know that Clinton is so dirty she stinks to high heaven.

If you don't like the Electoral College decision, then I suggest you write your congressman or woman to change that law. Otherwise, keep your stupid trap SHUT!

And if you're so worried about Hillary Clinton, why don't you just go get in your bed and SOB!

katie8753 said...

Hillary Clinton has been in so much trouble it's unreal. I can't even mention it all. She's unworthy to even be a part of our government. She's so dirty that even a Brillo pad won't get her clean.

And BTW, more women voted for Trump than Clinton.

I think these college kids are having a giant tantrum because the democrats had promised them free college. Well kids, I'll tell ya. Nothing is FREE. P. T. Barnum once said "there's a sucker born every minute".

If we give government that much control to pay for your college, then they will also tell you what you will do for a living. That's called Communism. Freedom is never free. There are certain sacrifices to be made to keep our country free.

I suggest you all get back to class before you end up flunking out this semester and having to PAY for the same classes again!

And what if they change the law to say the popular vote wins, and next time your favorite candidate wins electoral instead of popular? Be careful what you wish for...
