Clinton/Trump and the Future of America

Well, this changes everything for me and this blog. I likely will cease from doing political commentary, because with the choice of Trump there is no political solution to our problems. It went without saying that the Democrat party became a lost cause with Obama’s nomination for President. Now the GOP is equally lost. Conservatism, that I love so much and have fought for in my columns and on this blog, is essentially dead. Trump confirms that there is no sleeping giant. There is no silent majority. There is only about 20% of the US population that is conservative and that’s not enough to effect change.

So I won’t waste anymore time or energy doing political commentary, certainly not at the Federal level. I may do some on the state level but not even sure I will do that. Instead I will go back to telling stories and writing on matters related the Christianity and the Church. I may shut down the blog all together and only write columns.

I don’t know at this point. I have to do some soul searching and praying. But I’ve spent far too much of my time trying to sway people in this country and I have to admit I have failed miserably. So why make the effort. Better to channel my talents and writing energy in a direction that can help in other ways, either entertainment, or spiritual edification.

    Sorry Chris, I left my comment for this under the wrong article. It’s under the “My Column from Thursday Got Lots of Buzz” one.

      Fear not. I have no intention of backing down from the fight. I am just not going to pursue the political arena exclusively as my means of fighting. Its too broken. That is unless a viable third party arises.
