I have never seen a party so divided win anything, much less the White House, while retaining both houses of Congress and a preponderance of the state houses.
Many of you don't deserve this win. Some of you so disliked the party’s presidential candidate that you threatened – and perhaps really did – vote for the opposition. Others chose to remain silent and distanced yourself predicting there would be a catastrophic loss and you didn't want the residue to splash on you.
Well, the votes have been counted, the win was big, the candidate's coattails dragged members of the House and Senate to victory, and as usual, the deserters are scurrying to bask in the afterglow.
Let me tell you something, you guys had better get it together real quick, and if you've got thin skin and weak knees, you might as well stay outside the fray because the Republican Party is getting ready to be under a kind of pressure that has never been exerted. Anybody who isn't prepared to be castigated, lied about and called a hundred different kinds of fools and just keep on keeping on will get in the way and muddy the water.
Because as soon as President-elect Trump is inaugurated and the new Congress seated, the American media and the Democratic Party are going to hit you with everything they've got. They lost; they're mad; they're pouting; and as you can tell now by the amount of protesters clogging up the streets and destroying property that the movement is going to be well-financed, well-coordinated and appears gigantic, with fawning daily media coverage and constant criticism of every move the new administration makes.
This was your last shot; if you had lost this one, there quite possibly would never be another
Republican president as Hillary and the Democrats would have stacked the cards so thoroughly with open borders, amnesty and the influx of refugees and the increase of entitlements, all combining to form new voting blocks, that you guys would have been reduced to an ink blot.
Now, the good news:
If the new president and the Republican House and Senate will just do what they were elected to do, you have nothing to worry about because the results will be evident and immediate, and the American public will be ecstatic about the way they voted.
Open the Keystone Pipeline; put the coal miners back to work; rebuild America's infrastructure; revitalize our military; repeal the crippling and silly restrictions and astronomical taxes that cause our industry to move offshore; build that wall and give America a sovereign border again; round up and deport the criminal illegal aliens; and defund sanctuary cities where they are protected.
Bring industry back to the Rust Belt; round up foreign nationals who have overstayed their visas, and deport them; enforce the law; and above all, if there is to be reaching across the aisle, let the Democrats be the ones to do it. You won, so act like it, and do the job you were elected to do.
If you do, it makes no difference what the media or the Democrats do because the results will speak for themselves, and in two years – at the midterms – you'll be able to bite off another chunk of the legislative branches.
If you don't, it will be the Democrats doing the biting, and you guys will be on your way back to the dustbin.
So, cowboy up, get ready for a fight, because in the long run, only one is going to walk away a winner.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
