It's been a very interesting run. I have a newly found respect for this country's ability to survive a calamity. & that is what I expect during the next 2 years.
It is nice to know there are many kindred spirits out there who think somewhat the same as I do. Some are very eloquent in expressing themselves & serve as effective spokesman for what is good about America.
I do hope there is effective leadership among those who play the political game & that they do not take this aberration of the elective cycle as an omen of what the citizens want. We have seen daily for 8 years what an coordinated denigrating of a president's effort can lead to in public perception. I believe it also led to some bad decisions in the interest of political expediency.
There is a newly found respect for some of those who post for their ability to present their views in a forthright manner. I look forward to meeting many of you in the future. There is also a level of disrespect for those whose only ability seems to be similar to the name calling & political discourse we have seen the last 8 years. But, please continue, you are your own worst enemy.
I feel a level of sympathy for those who are unprepared &/or unable to scale their life style down as that will become a necessity should you be one who participates in the commerce of society, productively. We will all see where it progresses from here.
