- Forrest Gump: My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
We’ve all had some time to digest the election results that came as no surprise to me although I admit I was nervous until the call finally came at nearly three in the morning. As a Texan, I was through and through a Cruz gal but changed my stripes after he left the race. Yes, I became a Trumpette and have taken the heat and vitriol that came with it.
I clearly understand how many people here and around America are truly shocked and not happy, so I’ve tried to be very respectful to all viewpoints. With that, here’s how I see the election and the path forward.
I’m a firm believer that people see what they want to see whether it matches reality or not. We’ve all seen police shows or read about studies where three people witness the exact same event and then give three completely different accounts. That’s what happened in this election.
The vast media complex and the elite ruling class initially saw Trump as a non-serious candidate that would never run and if he did, he didn’t have as much chance as pigs flying to win any primaries, let alone the nomination.
Personally, I saw that someone and something different was happening and predicted here on August 31, 2015 that he would win the nomination. My prediction on Sanders proved wrong but if D’s had a do-over, who knows what might have happened.
Can Anyone Stop the Momentum of Trump-motion and Bern-Motion in Their Tracks?
As it turned out and as I predicted, he shocked everyone on both sides of the aisle and especially the MSM when he threw political correctness to the wind. They expected him to cower and make a public apology whenever they excoriated him for something he said or did. In the past, their demands were met like clockwork.
Just for Holiday Fun: Fast Forward to Nov. 8, 2016. Who Do you Think Will Win the Presidential Election?
Here’s my Magic 8 Ball prediction: Trump wins in a landslide election. It’s going to be a wave election just like 1980 that no one saw coming. Why? Because he is growing the Party with unlikely voters, many who would normally vote for a Democrat.
