Many adults are watching the reaction to Trump’s win and shaking their heads. Young adults, acting like spoiled children. College campuses setting up counseling and safe zones for mourning. Marches where the participants work themselves into hysteria.
Who are these people, what are they protesting, and why? It isn’t really about Trump winning of course. It isn’t about equal rights for minorities. Look at the makeup of these events. It isn’t about Trump’s bombastic style, or his hair do, or his comments about others. It is about their dream, as promised by Sanders, and later implied by Clinton of a free ride. A life where big government provides everything needed. A life with guaranteed “work/life balance”, where government will make everyone happy. A future of world peace and equality for all. A promise that every human will get a trophy for just being on the planet, like they did in little league for showing up.
Well, even though I’m not of the age group making themselves look like morons, I would cry too if I had supported Sanders, and then Clinton. But, for far different reasons.[message type=”custom” width=”100%” start_color=”#FFFFFF” end_color=”#FFFFFF” border=”#fb7200″ color=”# fb7200″]
- I would cry because I bought into the farce that government can make me happy;
- I would cry because I believed that government can give me everything, even if I didn’t work for it;
- I would cry because I ignored the long history of failure where socialism had free reign;
- I would cry because I ignored the lies so common with Clinton that she can’t tell the truth from a lie;
- I would cry because I thought Clinton was honest and would put my interests ahead of hers;
- I would cry because I let a single individual run amok with his power for 8 years;
- I would cry because I haven’t yet taken responsibility for my life and actions;
- I would cry because I believed that wealth redistribution can solve economic problems;
- I would cry because I believed that electing the same political hacks that created our problems would now fix them;
- I would cry because I fell into the pit of allowing tainted and biased media to direct my thoughts and beliefs;
- And I would cry for future generations that must suffer the consequences of my misdirected beliefs.[/message] [su_spacer]
I would even cry if I was a college administrator that was participating and fostering this irresponsible action on the campus.
Ah yes, there is much that one could cry over, but Trump winning is probably way down the priority list.
