Well, the elections are finally over.
History was made in a number of ways during this election, including the largest voter turnout in American history. Now we have a new leader that will take over the presidency of our country. Some are happy, some are unhappy. That's always the case. I doubt if there ever has been or will ever be an election that will please everyone.
What does all this mean to the average American family? Not much.
Will the rich continue to get richer? Yes!
Will there be some changes? Probably.
Will taxes be raised by the new folks in charge? Of course.
Will there be any answers furnished for the present problems our country faces? Not likely.
Will our unlawful and unwanted intrusion into other countries' politics continue? Yes.
Will the public finally start paying attention to what their chosen leaders are doing and try to control them to some degree? Unfortunately, probably not.
Will the average tax paying, hard working, well intentioned, poorly informed, deliberately misled, lied to, dumped on, unappreciated American citizen continue to be treated to the same stale offerings of a government completely out of control with spending of money they don't have for services they don't need from companies that can barely provide a decent product? More than likely.
So what does it all mean? It means that for the next four years, we don't have to have another election. It means that probably the only thing that will change in the immediate future is the letterhead on some of the stationary in Washington. It means that the more things change, the more they stay the same!
Same stuff, different day! Now, how about a fresh cup of coffee...?
