It is only after time has been given for a cool and deliberate reflection that the real voice of the people can be known. George Washington - 1st President of the United States of America
The people spoke.
The people - actively and passively - elected Mr. Donald J. Trump as our 45th President.
Some cast vote.
Some cast not vote - a vote for Mr. Trump.
The people unhappy now causing disorder in cities across the country must be stopped.
Protesting is a right.
Destroying property, attacking innocents, and otherwise disrupting life of society is not civilized and not acceptable.
Now is the time for our (sitting) President, Mr. Obama, to speak.
It is his duty - to call for calm, to demand the peaceful transition of power.
It is, too, the duty of the defeated Mrs. Clinton to call for calm.
For it was she, not a week ago, on the campaign trail who said, "When they go low, we go high."
Show and speak the high way, Mrs. Clinton.
But we, who calmly watch (to include times when things do not go our way) know deep down these two citizens do not have it within them to go high.
Try as you might, you two, to not show us just how low you can go.
Leaders know you cannot fool the "troops." They know.
The American citizenry is oft times too trusting and forgiving - to the point of foolishness. We all pay, dearly.
But fools we are not.
This morning, watching news, an analyst favorably uttered Donald Trump and George Washington in the same sentence with a thoughtful comparison.
I see revolutionary figures. And true representatives of the people.
George Washington listened to the people.
Donald Trump listened to the people.
He spoke. Truth.
And then the people spoke.
This is President-elect Trump's time.
Time he deserves. Foolishness is not extending that time.
George Washington knew.
Still President Washington speaks to us. Listen we must. Be cool. And reflect.
Our colors still fly - high.
Veterans, we thank you.
Only in America!
