Seven Days ago at this moment (1:30pm CST), I was discombobulated. The country was voting and the MSM exit polls were giving Hillary Clinton a
resounding victory. But a part of me still held out hope that Donald Trump would prevail. His huge rallies couldn't have been a lie!
But the polls and CNN, NBC,CBS and even FOX were making the country think that Hillary had it in the bag.
In regards to the election, what were you doing, feeling, thinking, at this moment 7 days ago??? Was I the only one who was more nervous than a
Space-X rocket designer, during the countdown to launch? It was ALL or NOTHING.

I literally didn't sleep that night. The excitement watching battleground state after battleground state go to Trump had the adrenaline peaked. I
almost felt like skipping all the way to work in the morning because of the amount of satisfaction I felt.
Laughter... and a good buzz from the whiskey I was drinking...
The democrats should have breezed into the white house... but they didn't and barely made a dent in the republican control in DC and are still losing
ground every where that isn't a major metropolitan area with a huge poor population base.
They ran a candidate that was disliked by 30 of the states... obviously they made their choice based on party politics rather than the will of the
people, and all the sycophants in the press couldn't change that fact...
So between laughter and tears at the state of our nation, I laughed.. long and loud, its going to be an interesting 4 years....
How's that voting for the lesser of two evils working out for folks..
I was literally thinking, "Well, this is going to be a long night. I sure hope that we don't get another Clinton, but who knows--neither will
dramatically make much difference."
I still feel that way, and I'm glad that we didn't get another Clinton. Trump's comments on what he wants to keep from the ACA show that it will not
be able to be repealed, and then he's considering brining in people to his cabinet that are suspect in their abilities to bring the country together
or stop our war-mongering ways.
It's basically the same thing that would have happened with Clinton, although I hold out hope that we see the tax code simplified dramatically.
PRAYING....Laugh at it all you want, but I bet millions were doing the same thing....
to what or whoever your religious belief relates to.
Mass prayer is a very very powerful thing.
Be it viewed as the result of a religious occurrence or the power of the collective mind.
Now the question can be asked is whether what we got was to:
Even after all of the digging and research I had done, I still was hoping I made the right decision when I voted. As the night wore on and Michigan
was still in play, I realized that I had in fact made the right call. Now, a week later, Michigan still hasn't been called! ><
Hope , then a Sense of Relief . It also Confirmed my Belief that I was not the Only one who saw the Results of this Election as being the Correct one
. The Country was heading in the Wrong Direction , the thought of Hillary Clinton for the Next Four Years as President would have Spelled the Death
Knell of our Constitutional Freedoms .

Well.. right about now, (6:51pm CST) you could start to sense that something was afoot, because the (Non-Fox) MSM talking heads stopped looking so
gleeful. I think they saw some raw data before the polls closed?
At the very earliest point of the evening, after the polls started to close, Donald Trump had 22 Electoral votes to Hillary's 3. But of course, that
lead wouldn't hold up, according to the wise (and bribed) Wuf Blister.
CNN had the best graphics, and the most to lose from a Donald Trump presidency. This recording of CNN's 2016 coverage for 5 hours, leading up to
Donald's amazingly stunning victory over Hillary, is a joy to watch!
