Time for America’s Left to grow up

President Donald Trump

 

I really don’t know what the Left truly believes is going to happen the day after Donald Trump is sworn in as President.

Do they believe that people will be rounded up and shipped off to concentration camps?

To judge by the comments on social media, it is literally the end of the world.

I can appreciate the sorrow at losing an election. No one likes to lose. It hurts. I get it. But try and be a gracious loser.

After all, Trump was elected fair and square. He gained the most electoral votes and that is how presidents are elected.

Those who seek to delegitimize his victory argue that he didn’t win the popular vote or that he was aided by Russian hackers.

It’s all nonsense. Presidential elections are not a national popularity contest. It’s 50 popularity contests. A candidate has to win in a sufficient number of states to earn the 270 electoral votes to win the election.

Hillary Clinton forgot that. The media forgot that. The pollsters forgot that. The only one who didn’t forget that was Trump.

That’s why he was stumping and holding rally after rally in key states. That is where he won.

Clinton won big in California and New York. That’s it. California is what gives her the edge in the popular vote.

Big deal. It just doesn’t matter. It’s not how the race is won.

As for the role of the Russians, it was non-existent. No evidence, not a single shred of evidence has been presented that says the Russians hacked the DNC email servers or the account of John Podesta. There is nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. If there was, you can bet your bottom dollar we would have heard about it. All we have are assertions. Nothing more.

So Trump’s presidency is legitimate. There are no ifs, ands or buts. He is president. Period.

There is nothing in Trump’s campaign, his speeches, his track record that suggests in any way, shape or form that he will be some sort of crazy, dictatorial president.

If anything the last few weeks have shown his priority is on creating jobs and reaching out to people who can help rejuvenate the crumbling inner cities of America.

Obamacare will be replaced with something better and more affordable.

Existing laws governing immigration and security will now be enforced.

Parents are going to get some choice in how their children are educated.

US allies will be asked to pull their weight in NATO.

A rapprochement with Russia will be attempted.

There will probably be extensive efforts made at deregulation.

Energy resources will be developed.

And there will be less government involvement in people’s lives.

None of this is radical and none of it threatens anyone’s lifestyle or ability to participate in American society.

So grow up. Quit your bitching. Be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
