Whats next? The Future of the 2016 Presidential Election

“Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.” – Alexander Hamilton

We have been at it for over a year now. Debates, primaries, caucuses, insults and policy. If you follow the election or care about the nation’s future, you probably have some sort of opinion about the candidates. But now the field is narrowed down to 5 candidates. That means one of these five people, unless something happens at the convention, will be the next President of the United States.

In the month of July we will see two nominees chosen. And in November will vote for the second time this year for a Presidential nominee. In January, the inauguration. But what about everything in between? There will be more debates, more name calling, more news reports. And at the end of it all someone will be the victor through all of this. It is up to us to decide who wins the election.

That is democracy. That is the way it should work. If we want someone elected, we must work to do everything we can to ensure that they are elected. That means that after the convention, our job is not finished! In fact it will be more vital than ever to ensure that neither Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders is sitting in the Oval Office in 2017. Am I advocating supporting whoever the Republican nominee is? Possibly. But what I am saying for sure is that the worst thing that could happen to this nation is a Socialist and a Liberal.

After these past eight years of damage to our reputation as a nation and the reputation of the Presidency, if we do not elect a Republican as President the damage will be irreversible. We will continue to loose our rights, see our morals torn away, and all we will be able to do is watch as our Constitution is shredded before our very eyes. If we do not continue to act, we will loose in November.

John Jay once said that “those who own the country ought to govern it.” It is our duty and our right to vote, to canvass, to debate and to have an opinion. Our forefathers battled for our right to discuss issues at the kitchen table. Now we must battle for that right again. The people own the country. Not the politicians, not the businessmen and businesswomen, not even the military. The people ultimately have the right and the duty to decide the future of the United States. After July we must stand behind the Republican Candidate. This talk of supporting Hillary Clinton over anyone else is foolish. We must unite behind whoever the nominee is. Until then we work to decide who that nominee is. And then in November we must beat whoever the Left throws at us. And I am confident that if we work together there will be a Republican inaugurated in January of 2017.
