What Will You Do If Your Candidate Loses?
Cry? Bitch? Moan? Cry foul? Everyone knows there's voter fraud. Everyone knows elections are fixed. Unless your candidate wins of course.
Then everything was clearly on the up and up.
Your whining for a recount is just sour grapes.
How Much Proof Do You Need?
According to news reports Donna Brazile the current head of the Democrat National Committee has been caught twice giving debate questions to the Clinton Campaign before the actual debate.
Other emails show that the Democrats were out to stop Bernie Sanders at all costs.
A very embarrassing Trump audiotape was released. His own words used to hasten his downfall.
Win At Any Cost?
Is it any wonder that people who should run for public office pass due to the overwhelming scrutiny they will be subjected to?
Is winning worth putting yourself and your family though that?
The Jerry Springer Crowd will come crawling out of the woodwork looking for their fifteen minutes of fame to refresh your memory of every stupid thing you ever did in your life.
Once The Loser Label Is Applied
Losers are often condemned to never run again. The days of Ronald Regan or Abe Lincoln failing over and over before being elected our 16th president are pretty much over.
Dan Quayle? Mitt Romney? Jeb Bush? Martin O'Malley? Any odds on any of them making a comeback and entering the oval office? Doubtful.
Harold Stassen ran for president in 1944, 1948, 1952, 1964, 1968, 1980, 1984, 1988, and 1992.
He’s the Susan Lucci of politics. She was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series 21 times and only won once.
Some Final Thoughts
I’ve lived through 13 presidents. I’ve survived them all. I will survive either Clinton or Trump too.
So I’m not going to whine or moan if my presidential pick falls short.
I will pick up my marbles, go home, and live to fight another day.
Not to say that I won’t display a physical performance of my disdain for America’s presidential pick in the privacy of my living room.
That could very well happen.
If it’s the wrong pick.
I’m going to stock up on Nerf bats for election night. I don't want to damage any of my personal possessions. How about you?
