It was a dark night in America on the eve of the election; everyone was saying “Hail to Hillary the new President”. The pretender was lying about; a wall that could not be built and you cannot re-open closed factories. Treaties are sacred and cannot be changed, you cannot stop people coming to America and certainly you cannot throw people out just because they have done some crime, even if it was a really serious one.
That pre-election night CNN said the election was all but over, MSNBC said it was true and they were setting up to cover Hillary’s planed grand celebration fireworks show in New York harbor, ABC called for more of Obama programs and NBC was counting her electoral votes even before dawn. The media told Trump supporters that it was useless to vote. The media elite were all together in the celebration of the victory to come and even Fox News was very subdued.
But dawn came and Americans began to wake and think. The working people who had seen their standard of living go down and if it was not them, it was the family next door or down the street. Many people could not afford the new mandatory health care and were going to have to pay a fine for being too poor to pay. Jobs had been shipped off to foreign countries, cities were spiraling down and parts of some were even under gang control. People could not see a good future for their kids.
Yes, for the most part they did not come from the big cities but from the heartland of America. They drove their trucks and old cars passed abandoned farms, vacant stores, and empty factories and as they did, what was really happening to America began to sink in. Some waited in long lines at the nearest polling place and when they came home they knew that they had done their best for their kids and their country. The working class that had been forgotten and beat down had begun to speak.
They stood tall and said enough is enough. Then when the polls began to close, the impossible began to unfold; Ohio fell to the pretender and then a few hours’ later Florida and then South Carolina. Even Wisconsin and Michigan seemed to be in play. Something was going terribly wrong; votes were coming from Pennsylvania and Iowa and they told the same impossible results.
The people were finally speaking, speaking against the system where they could go to jail for small offences while the elite class could violate the law big time and still be free and even run for president. The people stood against being told what they could say and how they can say it. They fought back against being laughed about because they worked or wanted to work for a living and take care of their families.
Who were these people? They were the guns, family and God people in flyover country. They didn’t have a bachelor, masters or PhD degree; they were the white working class and the blacks who finally realized the Democrat’s gave nothing back except empty promises. They were Christians and the Jews and even some non-believers. They didn’t talk like the Washington and New York elite and they sure were not progressives. They had funny ideas about God, country and work. They did not wear the latest fashions, yet they still mattered, at the voting booth.
They did not understand much about illegal immigration except that those people were taking jobs and many not paying taxes. They did not like the Black Lives Matter movement. People in high places said they would have to get use to the coming future and yet, in a few hours they changed everything.
More than sixty million Americans repudiated Obama and the Clintons. They ignored the celebrities and the media. They were tired of watching their sons and daughters come back in coffins to protect some Muslim country where the people hated our guts.
We will never hear their names or see their faces. But they came to the aid of a nation in peril. They did what real Americans have always done. They did the impossible. As for now that dark night has passed and a new dawn is shining over America.
