“Thank God Almighty we are free at last!”
Can I hear an Amen? The above words by Martin Luther King Jr. echo down the years and resonate with undiminished power for “we the people” today. But there is much work ahead of us.
To paraphrase another great man, Winston Churchill: Now is not the end, nor is it the beginning of the end — it is the dawn of a beginning.
The beginning of the challenging and glorious process of “draining the swamp.” “Challenging” because of how widespread and entrenched incompetence and corruption has become in America’s government, and “glorious” because we will be restoring “we the people’s” bright and noble birthright that currently lies neglected, tarnished, and broken.
You may think that I am jumping the gun, as Trump is only President-elect. True enough, but that light at the end of the tunnel puts a smile on my face and brings tears to my eyes. Oh happy day. Laus Deo!
For those liberals who have promised to leave the country if Trump is elected, I say good riddance – oh, and take as many establishment Republicans with you as you can, thanks. Bon Voyage — no need to write.
