Reflections On The Trump Victory

The USA has just finished one of the longest and the most polarized, nasty election in my memory.  Virtually half of the country is in the state of depression and worry with the other half ecstatic and happy.  What do we do within this reality?  Do we hunker down within our ideology or do we try to get along and understand each other better?

Is there an approach to political action that can tap into the shared values of most people in our constitutionally secular democratic republic?  I propose that we come together using wisdom, reason and humanism, informed by science.

Following are links to articles in today's Charlotte Observer that I think are beneficial for all to reflect upon:

A close election and a divided America

Our hopes for a Trump presidency

This article will summarize my opinion of those who voted for the man.

In closing, THIS is the REAL record of Obama's accomplishments during his eight years as President of the USA. Here's hoping that you, Mr. Trump, will at least come close to achieving what he did. Oh, please note: he did this with minimal Republican cooperation.
