    May he govern wisely.
    That's a proper sentiment, and the gracious thing to do. Seperates us from the left. I won't offer congratulations, but I will pray that he governs wisely, for all of our sakes.

    "Extreme taxation, excessive controls, oppressive government competition with business, frustrated minorities and forgotten Americans are not the products of free enterprise. They are the residue of centralized bureaucracy, of government by a self-anointed elite."

    Ronald Reagan
    (1911-2004) 40th US President
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    The Republicans need to learn from this if they want ANY chance of ever getting back the White House. They must go after the minority and women vote.
    How do you go after the minority and women vote without compromising or changing your principles? You know, the democrats never had to articulate a plan for the immigration problem. They never had to say what they'd do differently or layout specific actions or ideas. All they had to do was call out repubs as "anti-immigrant", "racist", etc. and it stuck. The conservative problem is that we didn't have an effective voice to counter it. Haven't been able to refute those lies even in the past few elections. Same thing with the voting bloc of young, single women; outside of becoming pro-choice, you're not going to get thru to them unless you first effectively explain how the opponents charges that we're "taking away their reproductive rights" is pure bullshit.
