Trump Won, Are You Packed?

If Trump wins, I’m going to do this or that or the next thing.  Many quotes from celebrities, actors, sports stars, politicians, you know, the high profile, outspoken, snotty, Clinton supporters encouraging the entitlement generation.  Granted, many Trump supporters said the same thing, however, they are not in question since Trump DID win.

How many of these high profile people have moved?  Or in the process of moving?  Was all of that talk suppose to be a threat?  Do these individuals really believe they are “all that” that their threat to leave would really make a difference?  Well, obviously it didn’t so get over yourself and leave already!  Oh wait, that’s right, several of those high and mighty individuals have already reneged on their promise to leave the country should Trump win the election.

Some of these people have said, “I already own a house in England, Spain, France, Italy, etc. So I am prepared to leave as soon as Trump is elected.  Again, where are you now; still packing?  Bought your tickets yet?  Or was it all just an idle threat?

Get over it… err, yourself.

Well, Trump won; are you packed?

Lena Dunham said she knows of a lovely house in Vancouver, BC which would become her new home.  When?  Or will she back out?

Amy Schumer said she would move to Spain if Trump won.  He did, but did Amy move yet?  How’s your Spanish?

Chelsea Handler said she already has a plan and in fact according to her, she has already bought a place in another country.  Are the moving vans loaded yet?  Is your passport current and do you have correct documentation to live in whatever country you promised to move to?

At least Whoopi Goldberg left the possibility open-ended saying “maybe” she would move.  I personally hope she does not.  Why you ask?  I have respect for Whoopi.  I don’t agree with some of her views, but when she is not on a rampage, if you actually listen to her, her statements, thoughts, ideas should at the least make you think.  That is, if you have an open mind.  Therefore, I hope she does not leave, but becomes more of a public speaker/activist regarding topics that are wrong AND right in this country. 

In closing:

I hope those people threatening to leave this country because Donald Trump is now our President-elect, actually leave.  Those people are not part of the solution in bettering our country, those people have become part of the problem.  Just because they didn’t get their own way so they are going to leave, they are going to give up on this country, they are quitters.  It’s like a little kid playing a game, loosing then running home to mommy because they lost and didn’t get their own way.

This country is in dire need of reform.  To make this country great again, positive reform will only come from all sides of the aisle, republican, democrat,  independents; everyone needs to work together, with an open mind and ask themselves what is best for this country.  And then follow through and support the best ideas for rebuilding, reforming and changing this country to be great again.

The Democrats Real Plan

Branding, front face, media exposure, popularity, well known, recognizable, are all part of a good media campaign. Is that why Hillary Clinton is the DNC party nomination for United States President?

Under normal circumstances, a person with a lot of bad publicity, and I mean a lot as with Hillary Clinton, this would not be an idea person to be the front face of a campaign. So why did the DNC really make her their nomination? Is it because she is a woman and that will bring in votes? Is it her history in politics (which is not the best according to both Dems and Reps)?

The candidate.

Hillary Clinton has the branding, well known, easily recognizable both by name and by picture, has had a lot of media exposure (good and bad) for over a decade. These reasons alone make her a good choice. Plus she has political experience, good and bad, but she has the experience at some of the highest levels of government offices. Again, these add up to a good reason for her to be a candidate.

Sell the candidate to the voters.  Get the public/voters behind the candidate, rile them up, pump them up, get them to the point the candidate can do no wrong.  Then, because of health issues the candidate, Hillary Clinton, has to back out at the last minute.  The ideal and best democrat for the position of president is…. Mr. Kaine but because he is virtually unheard of through most of the United States, on his own, he would not stand a chance to win a DNC nomination for president. But if Hillary was to back out, the DNC has the option/responsibility to choose her replacement.

Mr. Kaine has already been endorsed as Hillary’s running mate, a good reason to pick him.  Now add an endorsement by Hillary herself, all of her voters would gladly follow her lead and vote for Mr. Kaine.

Wait…

It’s to late, it’s to close to voting time because in some states absentee ballots are already mailed, in other cases ballots are already printed and about to be mailed. Now what? It’s to late to put Mr. Kaine’s name on the ballots and remove Mrs. Clinton’s. Electoral votes. That’s right, the voters themselves would not be able to vote because Mrs. Clinton’s name is on the ballot. So the voting for president is done by the electoral college which would take all of the voting for our next president out of the public’s hands. What does this mean? Politicians would elect our next president.

Scared?

Does this scare you? It should. Although the electoral votes are suppose to represent the people, if the people have not had a chance to “tell” – vote who they want, how is the electoral college suppose to know? They don’t. They vote as they please. Could they go by the last few public poles done by survey? Yes they could, but which one do they use? Not all the public poles offer the same results. As of now, depending on the pole you are quoted, Hillary Clinton is ahead or in others Donald Trump is ahead.

In essence, the politicians decide who they want for president. And we, have to live with the results. So where is the “people’s” choice? There isn’t a “we the people” choice, it would rely solely on the electoral college.

Is this the plan?

So is this the plan? Does the democrat party feel they would have a better chance of getting another democrat president into office in this manner?

By all rights, in my opinion, Mr. Kaine is a better choice for president than Mrs. Clinton. Mr. Kaine’s political views are not governed by the democrats “by laws” or rules. As a governor and senator, Mr. Kaine’s political career has show he does not follow all of the ideals laid out as a far left democrat. His ideals and past political record shows he falls somewhere in the middle and at times even agreeing with some republican views. Is he a democrat? Oh most definitely, but he tends to side with and fight for the people and what is right for the majority not for himself or for the powers above him.

Or…

Maybe it’s none of the above and Mrs. Clinton is not going to drop out of the race.  Maybe the idea behind this whole election is to position Mr. Kaine in the public’s eye for president in 2020.
