I Gave Up

Well, I really meant to follow every twist and turn in this election cycle with my scathing opinions and conservative libertarian millennial perspectives, but I just gave up too fast.

One second I was along for the ride, and the next I sitting in a muddy pothole in the middle of a deserted road watching the crazy election train bump its way down the road without me.

As the election season came to a close, I, like probably most Americans, realized that one of two heads on the same snake was actually going to get elected. We all thought it was going to be Clinton, so election night this past November was nothing short of electrifying. All the votes were being recorded in real time and very easily accessible online, and yet news station after news station refused to read current results which would point to an inevitable win by Donald Trump. Denial. I’m not saying I was sad to see Hillary lose or that I am pleased with a Trump win…I just can’t believe this is how it ended.

I live in Eastern Washington where the politics of the state are unfortunately decided by Western Washington. In the area I live which is near Spokane, Wa, I would say that most people are conservative and voted for Trump. As a conservative Libertarian, it is irritating that my values and the values of the entire geographical half of a state do not get counted.

Please keep checking back for new posts. I intend to continue to blog as we watch this Trump presidency unfold.
