it doesnt matter


now i know my voted counted cause i got a text telling me it got counted
i was worried though that many of you wouldnt get your votes counted even though you had legally voted
now it seems thanks to mostly state republican election folks that did what was right and counted the votes
their standing up to the national pressure to disallow votes took a lot of courage
it gives me faith that maybe the system does work

i do think we need more safeguards put in though to cover the loopholes in how we do things

i enjoy talking politics with my historian brother
he can give me perspectives from past elections and from when the founding fathers made their decisions on how our system was set up 
he is a walking talking encyclopedia

it doesnt matter if the president doesnt concede the election
the system will move on without him

joe biden didnt defeat trump
trump defeated trump
folks didnt necessarily vote for biden they voted against trump

i heard a republican governor say that trump attacking mail in voting probably cost him the election
a lot of his voters didnt do mail in voting but were afraid to go to the polls because of the covid risk

i use to tell my wife she and my historian brother that if trump had acted not like your crazy uncle and lied so much and all the other weird stuff he did if he had acted right he would be a two term president 
instead well 80 million folks voted against him 
although under different circumstances many of them would have voted for him
like they did in 2016

i think we well most of us want a different approach to governing

more like it use to be
a fairly normal acting president that we and the rest of the world can respect

i think we have that in our president elect

i do dread the attacks that will be coming
i expect the republicans will spend a lot of time attacking the vice president elect since she will likely be their opposition for president in 2024
look for racist and sexist attacks to occur
the democrats will attack whoever seems to be the front runner for the republicans

it will never end i guess 

politics is nasty and i guess it always has been and will be

but at least my vote counted and so did yours

the system worked like it was suppose to work
just like in 2016
