For better or worse, we got Trump.
I have been very open on Twitter with the fact that I didn’t want Trump. I was also equally honest that my candidate, Gary Johnson didn’t have a huge chance, and that I am equally happy to see Hillary Clinton lose.
That said, I didn’t want or like Trump. Still don’t like him. No matter how I feel, or anyone else for that matter, all of that is moot. He was dully elected through our democratic process and is slated to be our 45th President.
When I was in the Army, we used to lament that we answer to the office, not to the person and I think that is very much how I view this election. It’s been the same way that I have viewed the last 8 years, frankly speaking.
Whether the populace was right or wrong we shall soon see. Buffoon or genius, gracious or insulting, power mad, or just plain mad will all be revealed in the coming days.
And like every other election since, we will decide if we have buyers remorse or are proud of our selection.
Time will tell. It always does.
