The November Election is finally here.

Tomorrow is election day. As has become custom, I intend to be the first person in line at my voting precinct. Unlike the primaries, I suspect there will be many more people lining up behind me. It should be interesting.
Over the last few decades, America has been experiencing a pendulum effect in terms of going from Democrat to Republican and back to Democrat. Now, after eight years of liberal Democratic rule, it is time for a “correction” whereby the pendulum will likely swing to Donald Trump before it is too late to reverse the progressive agenda. Whereas Jimmy Carter begat Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama begat Donald Trump. Our two most incompetent leaders are giving way to two of the best.
For those of you voting for an independent candidate, please understand you will likely be helping to elect Hillary Clinton and undermining the appointment of Supreme Court justices for at least a generation, which has been a goal of the left for a long time. Plain and simple: By voting independent you are undermining the Supreme Court.
The Democratic Party is no longer the party of the people, but of special progressive interests bent on changing America. This year, the Republican Party experienced an influx of Democratic members who have abandoned their party due to its excessive liberal inclinations.
The Main Street Media (MSM) is still loyal to the Democratic Party and rushed to the aid of Mrs. Clinton when it became clear she couldn’t compete with Donald Trump on her own. Since the GOP Convention in Cleveland, the MSM has gone into overdrive to attack Mr. Trump and distract the voters. Only now are the American people waking up to the fact the MSM is corrupt and offers nothing but dishonest reporting, degenerative analysis, fraudulent polling, and fallacious fact checking. It should come as no surprise the MSM is now less trustworthy than the Congress, the President, and the candidates. People understand not only that they lie, but are being paid handsomely to do so.
As the “Greatest Generation” and “Baby Boomers” get older, the millennials are becoming the principal voting bloc, yet most are unprepared to make an intelligent decision. They tend to be naive, apathetic and, frankly, unaware of the issues involved with this electoral contest. This is likely caused by a de-emphasis in classes on Civics (government), and America history. As such, they do not possess a fundamental understanding of such things as the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. They are also lacking an understanding of the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and just about anything in the 18th and 19th centuries. Consequently, they do not understand the differences between socialism and capitalism, the dignity of work versus entitlements, and the basic structure of our government. In other words, they have become “sheeple.”
We now have within our grasp the ability to take back the country, and set it back on the right track. This is an opportunity we may never get again. If we blow it, our economy will likely implode, the Supreme Court will turn left, and we will become a third world country with China and Russia taking over as world leaders.
Consequently, 2016 will either go down as the year of the uniformed voter or the year we turned it around.
God help us tomorrow!
