When Democrats Lose, America Wins

Gone are the days when a presidential candidate would win in a large majority of the states. As with every election since 2000, this year’s was a close one; it was not clear until close to the end which candidate was going to win. These are the election results of a country that’s deeply, and almost evenly, divided.

Having never supported Donald Trump at any point, I’m not exactly thrilled that he won. But I am pleased that Hillary Clinton lost. And I’m very pleased that Republicans won the majority in both the House and the Senate.

All of this shows that roughly half of the voters just might have their eyes open enough to see what the fruits of Democrat policies, under Obama, have been – fruits rotten enough for Clinton to have to claim she’d fix these policies, even as it was clear that she intended to continue them.

Anyone who’s really been paying attention can see what kind of policies these have been: harmful (very likely deliberately so), yet cleverly disguised as being beneficial. Many people have been seeing the effects on healthcare and insurance costs, on small businesses, on entry level jobs, and so on. And they’ve been hoping and praying that Mrs. “Obama’s Third Term” would not be elected.

Anyone who’s really been paying attention can see that when Democrats lose, America wins.

I’m sure there will be those who blame Clinton’s loss on “sexism,” just as people have blamed opposition to Obama on “racism.” Such claims, of course, are childish in the extreme. Just let there be a black or female candidate who’s actually worthwhile – who won’t push destructive policies – and see if there’s any so-called “racism” or “sexism” towards them.

By the way, there’s one incidental thing about this election that I haven’t heard mentioned much: Trump is the oldest person yet to be elected President of the United States. In fact, if Clinton had won, she would have been the second oldest. So at least it’s clear that “ageism” wasn’t a factor in this election.
