Satisfying Election in a Number of Ways

I am not a Trump supporter and have no doubt that he'll be a perfectly dreadful president, yet this was a very satisfying election in a number of ways. Let me count the blessings:

1. The marijuana initiatives in 5 states are leading as I write. This will end marijuana prohibition in several more states and pave the way for ending prohibition nationally.

2. The senate and house will retain republican control which almost certainly will mean the end of obamacare.

3. Johnson and CFR gun-grabber Weld flamed out big time. In an election where the two main candidates were the least popular of all time, the LP had a chance to win big but their candidates blew it. This sends a strong message to the LP: Don't ever nominate non-libertarians again.

4. The mainstream statist liberal press got their heads handed to them. The election of DT is proof that they've lost the conversation. It was almost worth seeing DT win to watch CNN flounder and stammer for excuses on election night as more and more states turned red. Fuck you mainstream liar media. And fuck you again.

5. All the progressive liberal entertainers that swore they'd leave the country if DT wins now must leave the country.

What other things can we be grateful for?

Planned (un) Parenthood may actually get what it has coming, removal of government funding and RICO charges. (Thank you, Isabella S J for the inspiration for this one!)

Trump will have plenty of chances to prove he is either a liar, or not one. Tenth Amendment, Ending Executive orders.....

Hillary hopefully can get well and rest both physically and mentally. Maybe she can even see the light spiritually!

We won't have the world's most corrupt couple morally in the White House, nor will we have to figure out what to call Bill Clinton. (First Gentleman hardly seems appropriate ;)

The 'Will they stay or will they go?" Celebrity reality show will be both fun to watch and a net plus for America. (Personally, I hope they all keep their word and leave, but won't hold my breath)

Gary Johnson may go back to N.M., and stop running time after time for the Libertarian party nomination. We have already had one left-statist and several right-statists (https://www.zeroaggressionproject.org/mental-lever/left-statists-and-rig...) too many in the last 20 years, and to have one as the LP nominee was particularly galling. I may even join the LP now.

Speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly, defend the rights of the poor and the needy.~~ Prov.30: 8 & 9

The women's lib movement was in full gear. So young and dumb, I was confused about abortion. I live my life in remorse for not seeing through the smoke and mirrors of Women's Lib. Growing up in a "Catholic" environment/brainwash establishment from kindergarten to college. It was in college that I was exposed to the possibility of women choosing abortion vs. life.

This is a moment of my life I look back in horror and disbelief.

There was a young college professor that lived in one of the dorms in town she was about 30. In those days single catholic women in small towns didn't live by themselves. It was a big no-no. Single women lived in "women" only dorms in the small town island environment. You know, keep people from gossiping. Her family lived in another town.

The professor got pregnant from a married man that is. We were in horror to find her crying non stop one Friday afternoon when she was to return home like every weekend. She was only to work M-F and come home on weekends. Keep people from talking....

We asked her what happened and she confessed she was pregnant. As silly as this story may sound this is true. We were not street smart at all. We were very uneducated about life, sex and believed in wives tales. We told her we knew how to help her. We had heard through the grape vine that if you took 2 aspirins, a Coca Cola and castor oil the pregnancy would end.

Not realizing, none of it was true and ending the pregnancy meant the murder of the unborn. We went to the pharmacy and bought her the ingredients for a nightmare weekend on pooping all day and night long. Are you laughing yet?

Well, we where horrified. What was she to do? Catholic, single college professor, pregnant from a married man. She went home the next weekend and told her parents who forgave her on the spot. She went through her pregnancy very healthy and the child was beautiful. She brought the child with her every week and she kept her job at the "Catholic" college where she worked. Love was in the air. Until one day, I realize we could have been accessory to murder of the unborn.

Gives me the he-bee-gevies still to this day. I'm sorry God. Thank you the castor oil didn't work.

How many pennies did DT spend on media buy on MSM? LOL. I loved it when the mouthpiece of CNN kept begging DT for advertising dollars and DT said NYET. I got a kick out of HRC crying that the Republican establishment spent 0$ on TV advertising on DT. That was the ultimate accolade.

How much did DT spend on his campaign including staff vs. HRC? That is the biggest kicker. How much debt did HRC end up with and is she going to pay that money? Is she going to keep doing fund raisers and keep the money for herself and leave contractors hanging? JUST SOP...move along.

How much money does the Republican Party have left of the $ that DT fund raised for them? What is the Republican Party going to do with that $? Give it back?

All the way through the campaign the slogan was "Under budget and ahead of schedule" and did not fail on quality of the end product.....that's what the country needs.....

I think and pray that DT is going to hand deliver inside of a golden box what Dr. Paul has been saying. There are not 2 parties. There's one party. The party of $. The 2 party system is finished. "I'm trying to save the party" Ron Paul

The neocons will split from Repubs. and become the minority or 3 party. "drain the swamp" Let's bet and apple.

What if DT has been in agreement with Dr. Paul all the X and everything Dr. Paul wanted to do will be delivered to him openly and quietly. In front of the entire world to experience.

What if DT is working to earn Dr. Paul's final endorsement? DT is prepaying.

I am regretful to Donald Trump for his dismantling of and exposing the Republican party for what they truly are a collection of corrupt, dishonest RINOS and back stabbers and same goes for the MSM , last but not least, he made Obama look like a despicable loser which he certainly is..
Donald J Trump is truly a Iron Man .. he never gave up against all odds and was relentless, for that, I salute him, This win is for the whole western civilization..

A Trump win, while very satisfying in the sense that it meant a Hillary loss, is not a completely rosy scenario. I have no doubt that Trump will give us larger government. Reagan's rhetoric was more libertarian than Trump's, but he gave us a federal budget 75% larger at the end of his two terms than when he took office. If that is a "win," I think your values are messed up. What scenario in my lifetime with total Republican control of the federal government has ever given us even the same level of government, much less less government? Answer: none.

Good points:

1. The end of ObamaCare, if they keep their promise. We should work to make sure it is not replaced with "RomneyCare" or equivalent. Republicans were not so much against the principles of ObamaCare, in my opinion, but, rather, against the fact that it was created by a Democrat.

2. Perhaps the end of the new Cold War with Russia. That would be one mighty blessing.

3. The removal of all of Obama's unconstitutional executive orders, if Trump is to be believed.

Bad Points:

1. The worst of all: Building a new Berlin Wall on the Southern Border, and that is literally what it is - a wall to keep people from moving from countries with less liberty to a country with more liberty. Distinctly un-American and anti liberty.

2. Increased trade protectionism. This will cripple the economy even more.

3. More attacks on the Fourth Amendment and more torture.

4. When the economy collapses from the inflationary bubble bursting in a year or two, this collapse will be blamed on the free market, as Trump was perceived to be (wrongly in my opinion) significantly more free market oriented than Hillary. If Hillary had won, at least the collapse would have been blamed on socialism.

I could go on and on. In any event, while this election was a defeat for socialist rhetoric, it was not an overall defeat for socialist policy, and was certainly not a win for liberty.

Good point about better relations with Russia. I had not thought of that and I hope you're right. Another thing we might see the end of is the false-flag gun-grabber attacks that had become so prevalent under Obama.

on all those false flags. The most difficult x I have talking to people including my hubby is about False Flags. Even when I show video analysis of all those FF people are still in disbelief. Even breaking down all the evidence on 9-11 as it has been well documented all I get is disbelief.

Just letting some pressure out. It is beyond my pee-wee understanding how people have evidence shown to their faces and still tell me "you are crazy".

Airplane fuel fires did not blow 3 buildings to dust. NEVER.

Sham WOW

Not only that, but, if we luck out and Trump turns out to be an honest, decent man, we might even see revelations and disclosures of some of the secret government manipulations and activities, once Trump discovers them. Of course, if he followed through on that, his life would be in terrible jeopardy. It might behoove him to hire some private bodyguards.
