Me & My Muse -Day 1219: Election Day

Have you voted yet?  I have.  In fact, I just came back from voting.

In looking at today, I can already make this call.  In understanding everyone’s strong feelings on the election, we are at a stalemate.  It doesn’t matter who wins.  Somebody will be angry.  If Trump wins, the Democrats will be angry.  If Clinton wins, the Republicans will be angry.  The hatred between the two sides is getting out of hand.

Let’s agree to disagree.  Are we not all human? Don’t we all live in the same country?  It is beliefs and values that are polarizing to people in so many ways.  Can’t we all just get along?

I will be very honest.  I do not care if Donald Trump wins or if Hillary Clinton wins.  Somebody will win.  Now, as much much as I want my candidate to win, it is likely to not happen.  But life goes on, you know?  God is sovereign over all things, regardless of the outcome of the election.

Shall I place my trust in a man or a woman? Shall I let them and their governance of this country dictate whether or not I will be happy?  My trust is in the Lord.  He is my source of happiness and no politician can take him away from me.

So everyone.  Stop worrying about the election.  Vote the values that matter most and leave it at that.  You did all that you can do to get your candidate elected.  Now wait it out and see what happens.


Muse:  You voted?  I just voted myself.

No you didn’t.  Intangibles can’t vote!

Muse:  Intangibles can’t vote, huh?  Well, that’s too bad!  If they could, there would be another vote for Trump!  Oh, and who did you vote for, by the way?

I voted for Donald Trump, of course.  I want to “make America great again”.

Muse:  So do I.  But Hillary Clinton is painting a different picture of him.

Of course.  That’s what all politicians do.  But with what she did, it is outrageous what she is getting away with.

Muse:  I know.  All those deleted emails, pay to play, voting for NAFTA,  Benghazi, covering her husband’s scandal…

Giving Russia a reset button for the Cold War, ruining relations with Israel, downplaying human rights, lying to the FBI and congress, creating ISIS by pulling out of Iraq too early, calling half of America a “basket of deplorables”…the list just goes on.

Muse:  I know.  And if she gets elected, she will increase the immigration of Syrian refugees by 500%.

Makes sense.  Having a bunch of immigrants that support the Democratic party would have them in power forever.

Muse: Not to mention, the tax increases would continue.  Over-regulation of business would continue…Why, she probably won’t stop until everyone is on welfare.

Everyone, huh?  I think that she will leave the elite alone.  How else could she have her musical entertainers?  She’ll pretty much drain all the wealth of the middle class.

Muse:  And then what?  More spending and more borrowing.  China already has a majority of our debt.

And let’s not forget freedom of speech.  Everything in the media and on the internet will be heavily regulated like China.  Our right to defend ourselves will be taken away and all the criminals will run free…

Muse:  At the end of the day, you just need to leave it in God’s hands.  You did all that you could do, right?

Yes.  And even if things do get really bad, she can never take away my Jesus.

Muse:  There we go.  I’m rooting for Trump.  I hope he wins.  Time for some reading!

*Muse enters pink TARDIS*

I hope that he does, too.  There’s a lot of people rooting for Clinton too, so we’re in a very tricky situation.  Like I said, a stalemate.  You can’t please both sides.

My win-win is trusting God in either outcome, and continuing to live for him no matter what.

Well, the polls close at 8:00 so there’s no telling what’s going to happen from here.  All I can do is trust God’s sovereignty in either outcome and hope for the best.  There will be a tomorrow, Lord willing.

Today’s high is going to be 57 degrees and the silver lining is being able to vote on the issues that matter to me the most.

To those of you who are satisfied with your vote, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  This poor country has had 8 years of battering and bruising.  I would hate to see what another 4 would bring under Clinton.  I hope that Trump wins!  Go Trump!  Drain the swamp!
