I’ll be honest. As the US election race proceeded I grew into a position of wanting Clinton to lose. I was so tired of hearing her politically correct talk and the double standard that went with that. Up in Canada, where I am, that’s a rare position. Last night the news said that something like 3% of us are Trump supporters.
I don’t know if I’d call myself a Trump “supporter.” It’s too early to see how his changes will affect my country and people. But I do feel that an Obama/Clinton legacy would have been like continuing in a bad relationship just because one fears the possibility of change. That leads to stagnation and inauthenticity.
The world is still turning this morning. Katy Perry doesn’t have to walk around naked anymore. Not that I mind that. And all the other entertainment celebs can go back to their mansions, not having to worry about paying their monthly bills.
They can look forward to their next world tour, which, incidentally, burns up oodles of jet fuel… carbon based jet fuel. Why, some of them can fly to Europe just to party in a European castle again. Who knows. They’ve done it before.
Sure, the business markets are down a bit. Our dollar is down a bit. But this is nothing like Brexit. Hopefully, this change can stimulate positive changes for everyone.
Congratulations to the winners. Oh and by the way, did you notice that Trump’s campaign manager was a woman?
