Lately, after the elections, I came across many republicans that I know behaving strangely. It seems they hate fellow americans and humans, and even
more strange - their own fellow republicans.
I saw them on the streets, on the roads, in malls, in cafes, in the subways, etc, and they are often quick to anger, to push and shove, and show their
frustrations very easily and quickly, than before.
It is my hope that it is only the result of their election lost, something many will get over. I hope so. More so after this form of new election
style where citizens are bombarded by negative adverts, real or imagined, 24/7 and wreck our minds.
Some say time will heal. While true, it is often the time taken itself that is an unknown, and if it takes too long, much harm may come from it.
Let not the history of the civil war repeat itself, whereby not all, but some foolish yankees were gloating over rebs. Some dejected rebs got over it
and contributed to the united nation, but others bore that grudge deeply, and had taught their innocent next generations to hate till today.
Both Democrats and Republicans must understand that despite all our differences, we all DO share COMMON goals in life, such as peace, justice,
equality, shared prosperity, responsible freedom and progress, regardless if we are white or black, rich or poor, religious or atheists, etc, etc.
The difference in politics by the 2 different parties lay only in their approach to achieving those common goals.
Today, the republicans had lost, but they should rejoice that firstly, it is not forever, only 4 years, and secondly more critically, it offered the
chance for the party and faithfuls to realize that there had been errors in their party that had caused an electorate landslide for the democrats to
lead the nation, and republicans still do have the ability to correct mistakes made and prepare well to lead the nation back in 4 years time, if they
prove themselves worthy.
Equally, the democrats must not be complacent, or ignore the needs of the republicans in their moment of victory. The nation belongs to all, for all
have a stake to progress and evolve the nation to greater heights, making full use of the democracy that the founding fathers had created for all
american generations, and even the world.
Let not the blood and sacrifices of our forefathers to be united as one people be in vain, their courage and beliefs that had let generations to know
peace and progress for 2 centuries in our tumoultous world.
In the words of the President - 'We are not blue states or red states, BUT THE UNITED STATES!!'
The time to heal must begin. It begins with you and me, to our families, relatives, friends, community and responsible religious leaders and to
elected officials, sharing common goals in life despite our differences, to progress and evolve to greater heights that USA is fully capable of as
proven by our forefathers.
