There was neither a red tsunami nor a blue wave on Nov. 6 and the sun rose Wednesday morning just as expected. Elections can trigger tears, but normal folk’s happiness is not dictated by which party possesses the preferred parking places in Washington, D.C. Certainly, there are consequences to wrong choices in the battle between liberty and bondage, but your contentment is most affected by you and things which happen within your walls. However, Democrats in Florida, Georgia and Arizona cannot accept losing and are howling and throwing themselves on the floor like a newly leashed cow dog visiting a vet clinic. With that said, Election Day 2018 revealed three things.

First, thanks to our wise founders, America is, has been, and will continue to be the land of opportunity. sport and not for the faint of heart. If you publicly announce your support for God, family and country, leftists will attack you unmercifully. Few people and even fewer politicians, can remain steadfast to their values when the shooting starts. I was not a Trump supporter during the 2016 GOP primary, but after watching him take fire for two years, I truly believe God made him to serve our republic at this time. President Trump is completely focused on delivering campaign promises regardless which party controls Congress. Democrats, Never-Had America’s framers established a democracy rather than a constitutional republic, today’s beltway beast would be far more obtrusive than it is. Contrary to progressive dreams, there is nothing pretty, nor fair, nor sustainable about mob rule and democracies live a short life before dying a violent death. For proof, see the videos of the Antifa terrorists attacking Tucker Carlson’s house for expressing opinions different than their own. Progressivism is, has been, and will continue to be evil.

Second, politics is a blood Trumpers and the national media hate him for his bold persistence; a leader who appears to be strengthened by adversity. CNN’s Jim Acosta thinks differently, and he is wrong.

Third, and most important, President Trump faces no greater opposition from a Democrat controlled House than he did under one controlled by meek and weak Republicans. He will deliver, the American economy will flourish, our military will be stronger, senseless regulations will be repealed, trade will be balanced and those wishing to abandon their mob will find a job. America is becoming great again and that drives the America haters insane.
