Tuesday, November 8, 2016 – Vote Pray Love! And the Winner Is…

It is Election Day in The United States of America. Today citizens select the next leader of our republic. Our democracy calls for a peaceful transition of power. There is no king or queen who gets the role by hereditary. There is no forceful usurpation by a dictator. We, the people select a new leader through the voting process guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution and amendments to the document.

The Preamble to the Constitution which states the purpose of the document reads:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Today there are two schools of thought. Old School – two things you never want to see being made – sausage and legislation or in this case – politics and the goings on of the proverbial smoke filled rooms of yesteryear.

Millennials’ School – you wanted to see a transparent government. With social media reaching critical mass one gets to see and hear everything. How do you like seeing the transparent government so far?

Tonight is going to be a Betty Davis evening. “Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy night.” (All About Eve)

Life is about choices. One can choose to sing songs like Barry McGuire’s – On the Eve of Destruction

Handful of senators don’t pass legislation

And marches alone can’t bring integration

When human respect is disintegratin’

This whole crazy world is just too frustratin’

And you tell me over and over and over again my friend

Ah, you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction

Or you can sing The Beatles We Can Work It Out:

Life is very short, and there’s no time

For fussing and fighting, my friend

I have always thought that it’s a crime

So I will ask you once again

Try to see it my way

Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong

While you see it your way

There’s a chance that we may fall apart before too long

We can work it out! We can work it out!

Your choice. Both of those songs were released in 1965. We, the People are still here and

We, the People … We can work it out!

  1. All I can say is I voted in the most contentious and mean-spirited campaign on a national level I’ve seen in all my 70 years. But, I voted.
