Like so many of you, at 2:41 am election night I let out the most tremendous sigh of relief. As a libertarian, I am greatly relieved that Hillary Clinton lost the election. Coming after eight years of the radical and fundamental transformation instituted by President Obama there would have been very little left of our Constitutional Republic. President Hillary would have continued governing by imperial edict, just like President Obama, and the spineless Republicans in both houses of congress would have continued to nothing except whine. Like everyone else that understands and respects the Constitution, what scared me the most was the fact President Clinton would have had the opportunity to nominate two or three Supreme Court Justices, I don’t want to freak you out too much but it was rumored that Hillary Clinton was considering appointing President Obama. It is abundantly clear that whoever she would have appointed it would have been a radical leftist like herself. Religious freedom, the right to bear arms, and free speech would have been severely curtailed.
I did not celebrate President Donald Trump’s victory. I am cautiously optimistic that he might possibly be an OK president. He is a big government type. A lot of his positions are more closely aligned with those of Democrats, although not radical socialist Democrats like President Obama and Hillary Clinton. During the campaign he promised to govern more like a conservative and promised to nominate strict constructionalists to the Supreme Court. Even if he does not carry through on all of his promises he still will be infinitely better than President Clinton would have been.
Both the Republican and Democrat parties were major losers during this election. They both nominated such abysmal candidates. Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson warned about the dangers of a two party system. We should have listened. We the people need to scrap the two major parties. They have a complete stranglehold and the entire political process and both are corrupt to the core. It will be a long difficult process but it is necessary. Unfortunately the Libertarian Party also produced an abysmal nominee this election.
The mainstream media really out did themselves this election when it comes to liberal media bias. They actively became an extension of the Clinton campaign. Unfortunately far too many people rely on them exclusively for their news. That locker room chat video came way too close to being the deciding factor for this election. This problem needs solution before the next presidential election.
We also need to break the liberal stranglehold on higher education. Colleges are training a generation of social justice warriors who believe socialism is superior to free market capitalism. They also believe that the Constitution and our founding principles are garbage because the founding fathers were nothing but while, slave holding racists.
Defeating Hillary Clinton was an emergency stop gap measure to prevent the destruction of our Constitutional Republic. Restoring our Constitutional Republic will take decades of hard work. More on that in future articles.
