Super Dave: My views and thoughts on the election
Here is a story that was inspired to me today after hearing a song I had not heard in a long time and I honestly think Terry Kath wrote it for times such as this.
The elections are over and the voters have made their voices heard all across our nation. Some are happy and some are just full of hate, while others are accepting it but not happy. I have seen many elections over the years and this was without a doubt the craziest one yet. Was it really any different than those of the past? Yes it was in many ways, from those running for office to how mass media attempted to run the election. One thing that was made very clear to us and as many of us has pondered for some time is how “Polls” can be tweaked to give the results you want it to make, in an attempt to change the outcome. In 2000 George W. Bush (R) won 271 electoral votes and a popular vote of 50,455,156 while Albert A. Gore (D) received 266 electoral votes and 50,992,335 popular votes. That was a much closer election that what we just saw this last week. Did protesters take to the streets over it? Did many well know artist and actors all scream how they were leaving the country? Nope, you had the normal grumblings for a few days and Grandpa being in rare form at Thanksgiving because his candidate lost.
One thing missing was the intense mass media coverage that we saw in the Clinton/Trump race. You couldn’t open a single paper of news/information publications without seeing some poll or another and most times rather limp accusations against one or the other politicians while lacking any real facts to back them up. Face it, many broadcast news media outlets made it no secret who they were backing for President. In fact, CNN got the nickname of Clinton News Network. What ever happened to just reporting the news as it happened unbiased, over making up the news? All the social internet sites for the past year as well have been afire with finger pointing and creeps crawling out of the woodwork from nowhere trying to gain two seconds of fame by bring up something false or not the whole truth with asinine statements. People seem to often accept what they read simply because it’s on the internet. But I think we also saw a good many people started to see through the crap the mass media was throwing at us and started applying some common sense into who they voted for. Sure it was a close race, heck just look at who was running for office. But a change was needed and a change has been coming for some time and it has now arrived. Will Donald Trump our new elected to be President be that person? I really don’t know any more than most of you who claim to know he won’t be. He has 4 years to try and show us what he can do before the next election where we can vote him out if we don’t like it. But remember it takes us all, together as a nation to make it better for everyone.
I stumbled across this really great song today by the late Terry Kath the seemed to instill a relaxing calm upon me and I invite everyone to listen to this song and see if it doesn’t do the same for you.
