Yes, it's been awhile since I've had the time to post here. But today warrants my taking the time to at least throw out my thoughts over last night's sellout of America.
A couple of my teenage daughter's friends actually texted me last night after the "vote." You're probably as surprised as I was. They wanted to know what I thought was going to happen and what it meant for them.
And as corny as this is going to sound, it is sincere. I started crying while I was texting them; trying not to be melodramatic (although that's really the language teenage girls understand best!)
I enclose my reply here.
This is a moment that will be looked back upon by historians as the tipping point of our America as we have known her. The dems have sold their souls to their Socialist Idols. Although, I believe the republicans also share some blame for not fighting harder the last 20 years and for running scared away from media criticism and being afraid to stand up and proudly proclaim their conservative beliefs. Sure, there wasn't anything they could do this time....but maybe if they had delivered on their campaign promises and stood on principles, it would've been easier for the "independents" to tell us apart and know who to vote for. Too late now, though. Home ownership, medical breakthroughs, entrepeneurship, and the spirit of Americanism died last night.
It is indeed a tragedy.
