With the results of this historic election, the mainstream media has made known its utter surprise after not seeing what was clearly in their collective faces -- that commonsense America was good and fed up with Washington, DC politics as usual.
Responding to a question from one of the talking heads who asked him why Trump won, Herman Cain recently said on Fox News, "Trump won because the American people are not stupid."
The following is from my good friend and fellow social media pontificator Stephen W. Browne, a noted conservative blogger, columnist, and author. I thought his observations during the elections apropos and shared them recently on one of my radio shows:
"The bottom line is people who are not on the left are fed up. Trump fights. Leadership at this time could have gone to anyone who fought this audaciously, but apparently, no one else had the ‘intestinal fortitude.’ I was as mortified as you that it was Trump - but he fights.
During the Civil War, people came to Lincoln complaining that Grant was a drunkard and a lout.
‘I cannot do without this general,’ Lincoln replied. ‘He fights.’
Things we know by now:
Stephen wrote this piece before the election. But it was clarion clear in depicting the state of one political party, its agenda, and the campaign platform of its candidate, who now may very well be brought up on criminal charges and blames the FBI for her defeat.
Congratulations, President-elect Trump, and your commonsense campaign platform.
In conclusion, as I say at the end of all my social media commentary, let the truth "rang out!" Why "rang" instead of "ring"? Because the truth is already out there. We just need to speak it!
