A little while ago, Dana Loesch and I were both getting ready to speak at a rally. It always helps to process politics with others to broaden our perspective.
After 15 hours of working at the polls, I was pleasantly awakened late Tuesday night by a friend, Marie Lasater, who called to tell me she just beat a 20 year incumbent to win her election as County Coroner. What a week of surprises! Here are a few takeaways:
1.) Don’t believe polls. The only poll that counts is the one taken on election day when the ballots are counted.
2.) Although both Hillary and her VP running mate blamed a part of her loss on her being a woman, don’t believe that for one minute. Plenty of women, myself included, have run and won as women. It’s not her gender that cost her the election. It was her policies, e-mail and Benghazi scandals and condemnation of those who are on the middle to right end of the political spectrum.
3.) The riots are being perpetrated by unknowing people who think destruction is better than construction. They are proof that the electorate doesn’t understand the part of the Constitution that explains how we select our President. If you know someone who needs remedial help, click here:
Rioting is a cowardly and lazy way to precipitate change. It takes a lot more work to engage in a campaign, write letters to the editor, walk door to door or set up a phone bank for your favorite issue or candidate. We should always expect civility, decency and morality to one another from our fellow citizens. Rioting is a way for those who already had evil in their hearts to act like wild animals hurt other people.
4.) Lots of people prayed that God’s will would be done. We got a wake up call the that price of peace is eternal vigilance. We must never stop praying for our leaders and public servants.
On our podcast this week we visit with a Democrat political expert to get the viewpoint from another perspective. If you are not in the habit of listening to it, but are curious, just click the picture at the top of the page and the show will begin.
What do you think should be the priorities of our Country next? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
Stay the course! Forward and promote my newsletter to others who need to know there is a better way.
What You Can Do
1.) Be a peacemaker. Where people are unhappy, offer them the perspective of love, kindness, gentleness and compassion. Always default to the position of showing grace and mercy on those who are uninformed and misinformed. We can bring more people our way if we treat one another with respect and dignity.
2.) If you were actively involved in a campaign, enjoy the extra time you have in your life and use it to help others in a meaningful way. Commit to making the world a better place by using any skill you have to bring others to the light you have in your life.
3.) Invite me to speak. If you have an event where you need a speaker, please let me know. I am spending my energy on the places where I can make the greatest difference. Please let the meeting organizer know that I can help your group understand the intersection of government and families in a way they may have never known before.
