That's the truth. The 'best' people on my friends list voted Trump.
When I hear the indignation, read the philosophical lamentations trying to grasp what happened and hear the dripping condensation in the voices of those that feel the 'uneducated' have just burdened them with a racist, misogynistic neanderthal...
I think of my personal friends and acquaintances (367 to be exact). And how the very best of them --
the ones that give the most money to charity, who give of themselves and their own time to charity, who adopt children and take in foster kids (of any color) and pregnant teen moms (of any color), the ones who volunteer the most, shuttle other people's kids the most and the ones you would trust your kids with without a second though --
--on in my list of 50/50 politically mixed friends...all are Trump voters but one.
Many are women.
Most are college educated.
Many are Jewish.
Some are Black.
Some are gay.
One is transgender.
None are racist.

Two things lifted from my just-turned-16-year-old's Facebook:
"So one argument I've heard quite a bit against Trump and his supporters is that he's running this "Nationalist" movement, and that all of his supporters are these absolutely horrifying "Nationalists." I'm just confused why that's a problem. Apparently I'm the bad guy for loving my country. I'm the bad guy for wanting the best for my country. I'm the bad guy for putting my country first. According to the left, you aren't an American unless you put the good being of every other country first. If you have the nerve to believe that maybe, just maybe, America should be protecting American lives first then you're the bad guy, and you're the problem. Being a patriot is an absurd concept to them. Some would even go as far as to say that this "Nationalism" is deplorable. This country is changing and it's about time. When loving your country is worthy of shame, while openly disrespecting it is praised, something clearly needs to be fixed..."

Well then, there ya’ go. The big FU? Yes. But many of us are not all that enchanted with a lot of what Trump said and we will definitely be watching him every bit as closely as we’d have watched Hillary. The rule of law and the American way are the standards, and he’d best not get cocky.
The left, expectably, is already perverting the good sense that should prevail. The old saying, “In victory, magnanimity; in defeat, graciousness” instantly became, “In defeat, RIOT!” Capitol Hill here in Seattle erupted into riots last night. The mob was out and destruction and mayhem followed. Social media has blown a fuse with thousands of tweets calling for Trump to be murdered. Sure as shit no high ground for the leftists there, eh?
The usual crop of leftist morons, and I use that term pointedly, are again vomiting up their worthless garbage. This is the big FU to them.
No, RBB, Anonymous, Nate, we are NOT racists just because we opposed Obama’s policies. That in and of itself is a racist attitude. You say that just because we are white we do not have legitimate policy differences with Obama, we have only knee-jerk racist reactions. Bullshit on that and shame on you (yeah, as if you could experience that). For that to be in any way near rational, the situation would have to be that if it was John Kerry or another white guy who would do what Obama has done, we’d be all for it. Do you believe that? No, I think not.
Racist because we want the laws enforced regarding illegal immigration? You are full of shit. Nobody is going to be rounding up millions of Mexicans (and others by the way) and loading them up and running them down to the boarder. Shove it. Hell, we are not even going to treat them the wretched way the Mexican government treats illegals coming into Mexico from Central and South America.
Anonymous laughably blathered, “This is like a business to Trump, he won't let go of this--this is a franchise to him. Fascists don't let go of power--next will be Trump Jr, then Ivanka.” You and yours jabbered the same about a Bush “dynasty,” then tried to establish a Clinton one. Will you reject Chelsea if Clinton Inc. runs her in a few years? No, that would take integrity and constancy; you guys are not capable of either.
Trump is not our savior. But, we understand that. No little kids being coached by biased teachers to sing “Yes, we can!” in public schools. No crowds of youths singing “Trump is going to lead us!” No crowds of fainting people. Just enthusiasm and, dare I say it, real hope. Not some amorphous hope that the newly anointed god-king will make it better by waving his majick unicorn horn, but by getting the hell out of the way of growth, liberty, and the chance to succeed, or fail, as individuals in a society of liberality and simple, plain justice.
Not justice, as defined by the Social Justice idiots, meaning that the favored group gets it. Not justice meaning that if you are not in the protected classes you get the IRS scrutiny, the DOJ coming down on you like a ton of bricks. Not justice that means one thing today, but another tomorrow, but rather the law being applied with standards on the large scale, and mercy on the personal scale.
Yes, this is harsh-toned. And I apologize if it reflects in any way badly on our gracious hostess, especially in this upsetting hour for her good family. But, I for one, am just damned fed up with putting up with the hate-spew from ignorant leftists whose entire approach is hate, projection, lies, irrationality, and venom. So, yes, the Big FU to all y’all. And it does feel good.

What a night!
This wasn't about Trump.
This was an FU.
To the media.
To the establishment -left and right.
To political correctness.
To political coronations.
To quid pro quo and status quo.
To social justice warriors.
To delicate snowflakes.
And to Obama.
And, if nothing else, a HUGE win for SCOTUS.
