For What Are We Protesting?

Trump Election Protestors

I am just going to put it out there, and people can like it, love it, or ignore it. They can like me, love me, or hate me for saying what I am about to say. But, here it is!

I am so fed up with all the nonsensical rhetoric, temper tantrums, whining and crying that is going on because the candidate that some people had hoped to be our President is not the one who now sits in the Oval Office. I cannot wrap my mind around and even pretend to understand what people hope to or think that they will carry out by all of their protesting and messages of hate that they are posting throughout social media channels, in particular, Facebook. The bottom line is that they are solving, and will solve absolutely nothing by their behaviors. Whether people like it or not, Donald John Trump is now the 45th President of the United States.

Yes, we are supposed to be the United States of America, but instead, we are acting more like the “Divided States” of America. Never in my young 58 years, after living under the direction of 11 Presidents, starting with Dwight David Eisenhower, have I ever witnessed such turmoil, mud-slinging, and undeniable hatred, as I have seen with this entire election process. When Barrack Obama was elected President (twice) people did not respond in such fashion, so why now?

Honestly, I know kindergarten children who act more mature than some people are behaving at this moment. Some people need to grow up and act their age and not their shoe size. Some people need to stop and think about the message that they are sending to the young generation now and the generations to follow. When the current “video” is played back, the message that will be conveyed is that if we are angry or disagree with an issue, the best way to resolve our grievances is through boycotting, protesting, and outward displays of hatred.

I want to set the record straight that I did note vote for Donald J. Trump for President. Nevertheless, as a citizen of the United States of America, I will support him as the President and Commander in Chief. Barrack Obama was given a chance to prove himself, and I believe that the very least that we can do is settle down and show President Trump the same amount of respect and give him an opportunity to prove himself. Hoping and wishing that he will fail is a ridiculous way of thinking.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are all in this together. Continuing to fight against one another will solve nothing. Continuing to spew out obscenities and hatred toward a person who you may not particularly like or agree with will solve nothing. We need to work together and resolve our differences peaceably. Remember that “Together We Stand, but Divided We Fall.” In my humble opinion, with some of the erratic behaviors that are taking place, we are showing the world that we are not as united as we once were and should be now. And believe you me, the world is watching!

All I am saying is give President Donald John Trump a fighting chance. Don’t be so hasty to write him off as a failure. Again, he was not my candidate of choice. Nevertheless, I will give him the respect that is due him as President of the United States, and I hope and pray that everyone else will do the same.

    LOL! You and I are on a similar page today. I too have a post later today asking, what are we protesting? What is all the hysteria about? Freedom? Democracy? A peaceful transfer of power? Who protests these things and why?
