I am experiencing something akin to shell shock, or what is now referred to as post-traumatic stress disorder. The election results on November 3rd were devastating to my psyche, and it will take some time for me to recover.
I kept my hopes up until the very end. I could not believe that the American people would elect a man like Joseph Biden. But they did, and now we the people will suffer the consequences of our folly. It makes me very sad.
I realize that President Trump contributed to his defeat by his often offensive remarks about those who opposed him – both Democrats and Republicans. He needlessly alienated some of those who could have helped him — along with much of the electorate. Nevertheless, I consider him to be an outstanding chief executive. He had many impressive accomplishments in both domestic and foreign affairs, and I believe we will soon sorely miss his leadership.
My greatest anger is directed toward the media. Most of the news executives and pundits hated President Trump, and they did not hide their disdain. The major news purveyors abandoned any adherence to journalistic ethics. They came out with venomous and often anonymous stories on Trump, but they refused to report damaging, multi-sourced information on Joseph Biden. The media absolutely reeked of bias. I am certain that ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and others are now licking their chops, but they did a great disservice to the American people. We can never trust them again.
At this moment I still have high hopes that the Republicans will continue to control the Senate. If so, they can check some of the more radical legislation by those insane Democrats in the House.
God bless and protect our beloved country.
