Post-Election Commmentaries (With Addendum)

For many of us, those who didn't vote the way each of us voted will view the supporters of the other party (or parties) as their personal enemies.

Can America ever again be the United States of America?

Have we lost our republic?

What will the consequences be once the newly-elected POTUS takes the reins of power?

Opine in the comments section after reviewing the guidelines for commenting here at Always On Watch.

ADDENDUM

Must-read commentary: Those who think - for a moment - this is a WHITE victory of race, hate and misogyny.

Also, here is my post today at Infidel Bloggers Alliance: Hey, Karl! Can you hear me now?

  2. I'm not sure why someone who didn't vote for Trump would be another's "personal enemy".

    But our Republic has been dying more and more each day, and today is no different. We have our first Twitter Troll POTUS....so we'll see how he does.

    3. I have taken considerable trouble to LISTEN to MOST of Mr.Trump's extended remarks thanks largely C-Span. The picture one gets of Mr. Trump when he is freed from "editing" and the twisted sound bites produced by the enemedia is very different from the grotesque caricature the media perpetually makes of him.

      If you had stayed up, as I did, to witness this historic event in its entirety, you would have had the chance to hear Mr. Trump's acceptance speech, which came close to 3:00 AM. He was extraordinarily gracious, generous, quiet-spoken, and kind.

      What impresses me most about the way Mr. Trump addresses his audience is the way he never fails to talk of "we working together for our country." A stark contrast to Mr. Obama's incessant use of the first person pronoun "I" in nearly every public statement he's ever made.

      Mr. Trump never fails to acknowledge those who have helped him along the way with considerable warmth and even affection . Unlike Mrs. Clinton's harsh, toneless, abrasive, uncouth Midwestern twang Mr. Trump's tone is gracious, gentle and genuinely appreciative when speaking to or about those who have aided him during the arduous process of campaigning.

      Of course, I may well be wrong in my enthusiastic appraisal of Mr. Trump's performance, but I have watched him closely for at least six months, and have seen him evolve and grow tremendously along the way.

      If you received your impression of Mr. Trump only from sound bites and video clips heavily edited to present him in the most unflattering light possible, it's unlikely you've really seen him at all.

      Like most I regarded him as a bombastic boor at first, but I have since come to realize that there could be no reason for him to put himself through the grueling process he's endured for fifteen months other than a genuine desire to help rescue our country from the steep downward spiral on which the Democrats and the Internationalists have callously put us.

      I believe Mr. Trump when he says he ,over this country and is grateful to her.

      I contrast I've never been able to believe a SINGLE THING Mrs. Clinton has said in public. She continually radiate excessive pride, conceit, arrogance and a cold almost reptilian detachment from others. Not only have I found her unappealing to the point of repugnance; I also find her frightening. She is somene I'd make every effort to avoid meeting if we ever found ourselves walking in the same street.

    2. Mr.Trump's acceptance speech, which I saw in real time close to 3:00 AM, was a perfect model of statesmanlike magnanimity and gracious diplomatic spirit.

      Unlike MOST I actually have taken the time to LISTEN to Mr. Trump's extended remarks n several cases. He's FAR more serous, FAR better informed and a great deal NICER than most have been led to believe by the ENEMEDIA.

      I supported him at first, I admit, primarily to defeat HER, but I got to now him better I came to believe he really has been our best possible choice all along.

    4. Yes I saw the acceptance speech, as well, FT. I agree with you, it was well stated.

      Found it sort of strange that John Podesta from Jake Javits Center,announced the HC would have a statement to make in the morning, and quicker that Podesta could exit the stage Trump was announcing he'd received a call from Hillary conceding.

      Maybe Podesta has a flight booked on the Lolita Express with his pals ...

    1. So just what have you gained?

      1. Health care costs -- Notice that pharma stocks were up big today? Coincidence? You'll probably get a repeal of the ACA and as a result a large number of people will lose coverage while costs are not constrained.

      2. "The culture war" - If you look at ballot initiatives like Colorado's legalization of assisted end of life. We are becoming more liberal and it isn't going to stop.

      3. Economy -- Trump's claim to fame is threat of a trade war. That's constructive. Otherwise I didn't hear much of anything.

      4. Debt -- Tac cuts and a huge infrastructure investment. Sounds like a deficit increase to me. Not that the infrastructure investment is a bad idea but I doubt it will be efficient or anything forward looking like high speed rail.

      5. Climate -- Burn more coal and do more fracking. Big win here. What can go wrong?

      6. Foreign policy -- Beside fallout from the trade war he's going to get into a more warlike posture with Iran. That means Iran ramps it's nuclear program and the Saudis decide to ramp up to compete.
      Good news for the end of days crowd. For others, not so much.

      7. Race relations -- Here comes stop and frisk back. Look for the progress in drug sentencing reform to be rolled back. In other words it gets worse.

      Other than feeding a dislike for the Clinton machine, which I share, can you point out the benefits of a Trump presidency? I don't see much of value.

      The rest of it will sort itself out. Have you ever heard of how market forces affect prices?

      Do you understand how a manufacturer of something cannot just charge whatever they want? (unless they enjoy a government-granted monopoly).

      Keep it up, you're sounding just like your hero Rush Limbaugh in 2008. All that's left is for you to declare, "I hope Trump fails."

      Go listen to Hillary's concession speech, and perhaps learn from it. I found very little there to disagree with.

    13. @ Nostradumbass:

      I'm going to do a tad of fisking here but first Let me thank you for, once again, showing everyone why I call you "Nostradumbass", vis-à-vis your election predictions.


      "1. Health care costs -- Notice that pharma stocks were up big today? Coincidence?"


      Who gives a $!*#? The Stock-market also posted a record high which didn't make any rational sense.

      "You'll probably get a repeal of the ACA and as a result a large number of people will lose coverage while costs are not constrained."

      A large number of people have already lost their coverage because of the boondogle laughingly know as the Affordable Care Act.

      "2. "The culture war" - If you look at ballot initiatives like Colorado's legalization of assisted end of life. We are becoming more liberal and it isn't going to stop.

      It isn't a "liberal" policy. Its more of a libertarian policy. The way you use liberal cheapens its true meaning and hides what you repulsive Progressives really are. You lot used progressive in the beginning then socialist then liberal and now progressive again as people caught on to what you really are, fascists that use any means possible to garner authoritarian power a step at a time.

      "3. Economy -- Trump's claim to fame is threat of a trade war. That's constructive. Otherwise I didn't hear much of anything."

      Of course you didn't hear anything. You simply deal in cheap mockery when your feeble mind hears something beyond its capacity to understand.

      "4. Debt -- Tac cuts and a huge infrastructure investment. Sounds like a deficit increase to me. Not that the infrastructure investment is a bad idea but I doubt it will be efficient or anything forward looking like high speed rail."

      By efficient I guess you mean like Obama's infrastructure investment which was just a payoff to the unions and didn't do anything but provide feather-bed jobs and payoffs to the party loyal.

      "High speed rail" forward looking? What next, a buggy whip factory?

      "5. Climate -- Burn more coal and do more fracking. Big win here. What can go wrong?"

      Yes I know what you mean. If we don't do something soon all the polar bears will have drowned and England will never see snow again and all these terrible hurricanes that we have year after year, in increasing numbers, will wipe out Denver Colorado. Thank big Juju that Obama rolled back the waters.

      "6. Foreign policy -- Beside fallout from the trade war he's going to get into a more warlike posture with Iran. That means Iran ramps it's nuclear program and the Saudis decide to ramp up to compete.
      Good news for the end of days crowd. For others, not so much."


      Ever hear the story of Ronald Reagan and the Soviet Socialist Republic? I've got news for you screwball, Iran is the "end of days crowd".


      "7. Race relations -- Here comes stop and frisk back. Look for the progress in drug sentencing reform to be rolled back. In other words it gets worse."

      Just another Nostradumbass prediction.

      "Other than feeding a dislike for the Clinton machine, which I share, can you point out the benefits of a Trump presidency? I don't see much of value."

      No, but a continuation of failed "progressive" policies would serve this country just fine. Wouldn't it?

  11. One casualty of this election campaign, at least in my opinion is credibility of the media has to have reached an all time low. Having listened to the talking points put out daily by the likes of MSNBC, and their star morning attraction, Morning Joe, who the grim panel has assured the audience for the last couple of years that the Republican Party is disintigrated, and will never win another election in our life time—this was one pleasant surprise.

    CNN has shown its true colors as being the garbage dump network. A contingent of Baghdad Bobs, especially Chris Cuomo, the Baghdad Bob of Columbus Circle.

      But the fact remains that no nation can survive without sovereign borders. Just as no house or apartment can take in an infinite number of dwellers.

    3. Funny Ducky should say that...Van Jones was saying his children were "terrified" and a friend called tonight saying "How do young children KNOW what's going on? They're all asking 'what do I tell my children?' and I'd say 'go to school'"

      SO much has been blown out of proportion about Trump's RACISM and HATING IMMIGRANTS...what rubbish. Oh, and he's so racist that his Black VP of something or other, practically a family member to hear her tell it, adores him. Ya, it'd be better if he was a smooth talking politician and rarely misspoke but that's not him...some of us like his not being as slick as others are...if the Left could all calm down and accept this election and assure their kids rather than get them even more 'terrified,' we'd be in better shape.
      After all, what was it Obama said when he won in 2008? "Elections have consequences and I WON" And, trust me, we were as against his platform and his inexperience every bit as much as the raving Left is about Trump.

    4. Z,
      Van Jones, huh? Oh, there's a man of integrity. NOT!

      a friend called tonight saying "How do young children KNOW what's going on? They're all asking 'what do I tell my children?' and I'd say 'go to school'"

      Good grief! Are adults that stupid? Have they never grown up?

      People need to get over themselves.

      Hell's bells! So many times, "my" candidate didn't win. If a child, I went to school every time. If an adult, I went to work every time.

    5. Well Z, I guess kids react that way when they think their parents are going to be deported. Seems natural.

      Time will tell but reasonable people realize America has committed a grave mistake.

    6. Progs should be ashamed of themselves for all the scaremongering and bogie man building they do.

      Shame on you all for scaring children. And shame on you for fueling the multi-billion dollar international human trafficking industry with your tragically misguided policies.

    7. @ Ducky: "...reasonable people realize..."

      Cracks me up when adherents to a fantasy-based ideology of emotions, feelings and virtue signaling begin talking about "reason."

    1. Bunkerville,
      How many times have such riots happened before after an election here in America?

      It's one thing to be disappointed -- even to grieve. But to riot after an election here in America? How far we have fallen!

  20. I am glad to see Duck is all for - of smaller Government.
    The people should be the voice for growing their own pot.
    Don't let the Gov. regulate or tax your very own garden.
    In the western days - if your were bit by a snake or shot and in a bad way - you would have the right to ask your buddy to off you.
    That even happened in WWI and WWII.
    Yea Duck is for smaller Government.
    He is sounding more and more like a conservative.
    This a Republic [NOT a Democracy] - like the Progressives/Communist try to tell everyone.
    Ballot initiatives are a way to exercise STATES RIGHTS.
    WE THE PEOPLE OF THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE.
    FED GOV GO AWAY and take care of the BORDERS and National Defense. And be the mediator to settle States Disputes like the Constitution restrains the Fed Gov (negative rights as the commies declare).

      Exactly!

      The Nanny State is a consummate failure -- and a danger to the republic.

      Hey, there! Haven't seen you in a while.

      It is quite funny to see Duck molt.

      I suppose that the Leftward push of at least the past 8 years made the Left think that such a push would last forever.

      Well, nothing lasts forever. WE THE PEOPLE want the brakes applied to the Leftward push.
