The Voters Have Spoken
Primary results read like a Shakespearian soliloquy,
Instead of “To be or not to be”, the results read, “What was is not to be.”
That’s what South Carolina voters were telling us, when, on exit polls 70% said they voted for Donald Trump because “he was telling us the way it is.”
That’s what Jeb Bush was telling us when he explained “The Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina voters have spoken, and I accept their decision.”
These statements speak volumes about the mood of the country.
The country wants change they can believe in.
The country wants straight talk, even if laced with an occasional profanity.
The country wants winners.
The country wants someone to stand up to the “establishment,” wherever and whatever that it.
The country wants to see the end of the professional elite, on both sides to the political aisle.
The country no longer wants straight conservatism, or straight progressivism.
The country wants results, no matter how those results are how these results are packaged ideologically.
The country wants solutions, nor party sponsored policy resolutions.
The country is willing to take risks to resolve the problems that plague our middle class and threaten our fundamental values.
The country has decided it ,
“ tis ‘nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against the sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them.”
The country has decided 'tis nobler to oppose traditional misfortunes than to continue them.
