Give the pres­i­dent-elect a chance

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

To say that I am of­fended by a re­cent let­ter pub­lished in the Mary­land In­de­pen­dent on Nov. 16 would be a clas­sic un­der­state­ment. I am much more than of­fended. I thought be­ing called all those names by one par­tic­u­lar pres­i­den­tial can­di­date was just her view of those who did not agree with her. I re­fer to the bas­ket which was filled with all those isims, big­otry, misog­y­nists and in­tol­er­a­bles, racists, etc. All of whom were ir­re­deemable. Now comes a let­ter to the In­de­pen­dent from a per­son, I will not name, who is ob­vi­ously in need of ther­apy be­cause his cho­sen can­di­date lost. This per­son now be­lieves the of­fice of pres­i­dent was won by the can­di­date who per­fectly fits the la­bel given to his sup­port­ers by his can­di­date. To add fur­ther in­sult he be­lieves lies are now the cur­rency of the Amer­i­can public dis­course. This com­ing from a per­son who has tol­er­ated and sup­ported a pres­i­dent who told us “if you like your doc­tor you can keep your doc­tor, your health in­sur­ance costs will de­crease by $2,500 a year, we have shovel ready jobs, we will have no lob­by­ists, there will be no for­eign money in our cam­paigns, we will be the most trans­par­ent ad­min­is­tra­tion in his­tory, I will pre­serve and de­fend the con­sti­tu­tion of the United States, ISIS is the JV team, we have dou­bled the dis­tance our cars will go on a gal­lon of gas, fast and fu­ri­ous be­gan under the Bush Ad­min­is­tra­tion, for the first time since 1990, Amer­i­can man­u­fac­tur­ers are cre­at­ing new jobs, there is no in­fla­tion, my bud­get will re­duce the deficit by $400 billion over the next decade, it was not my de­ci­sion to pull all the troops from Iraq.” All these state­ments were bla­tant lies fos­tered upon us by the cur­rent pres­i­dent. I could go on and on but I think you get the pic­ture.

Then the party who gave us this liar foisted another one on us who ba­si­cally promised to dou­ble-down on his poli­cies and who had more ly­ing bag­gage than South­west Air­lines. We have been led by a suc­ces­sion of liars in our top of­fice for a num­ber of years. Liars who were lead­ing us on a path to glob­al­iza­tion. Liars who have led us into ques­tion­able wars. Liars who said we were not a Chris­tian na­tion and apol­o­gized to the world for our per­ceived short­com­ings. Liars who have shipped our man­u­fac­tur­ing jobs out of the coun­try. Liars who have flooded our na­tion with il­le­gals by their ac­tions and in­ac­tions. Liars who tell us they are all for the chil­dren who then shackle them with com­mon core if they don’t kill them be­fore they are born.

Give me a break. Don’t hy­per­ven­ti­late on us be­cause a large part of the na­tion, who was vig­i­lant enough to no­tice all this, chose to rid it­self of such non­sense. Great­ness had left us be­fore the cur­rent elec­tion. Some folks should give the pres­i­dent-elect a chance to set a new course be­fore de­spair takes to­tal con­trol of their lives.
