The White House had been a Leftist stronghold for 8 long, terrible years (as viewed from my eyeballs). Most liberals assumed they would control the government in this country forever. The mainstream media sure did. The pollsters absolutely believed that the Left was the majority this time around, as it seemed to be every four years.
Wrong. So wrong. And what does the left do now, once they come to finally realized that their agenda has just been repudiated by most Americans (those Americans who reside outside of liberal hell hole urban areas)? They burn cars, smash windows and destroy private businesses. The march out of their schools (after their teachers tell them to), and they protest with signs that say 'Not My President.'
In the meantime, however, just shut the hell up, buck up and soldier on. Life will go on without you and your liberal buddies calling the shots. It might not go on the way you want things to work, but it will go on.
