Here is my unrequested view of what looks to be the outcome of the election and how I feel about it. A quick resolution will take away the uncertainty and anxiousness we are all facing and keep the election out of the courts. A close Biden win will tell Trump that people didn’t like him as a person. Will he get the message? Probably not, who cares. It teaches kids that how you treat people matters and that it’s not always a good idea to say exactly what you are thinking. It’s also a good lesson to our teenagers that twitter can be dangerous, especially when you put every thought that comes thru your brain on there.
The fact that Republicans will hold the Senate however, should also be a signal that the majority of the country doesn’t think our entire system is broken. It needs some tweaks and improvements but it will keep a lot of the far left agenda items from ever passing. There will be a lot of gridlock and only bipartisan agreements will get passed. But isn’t this reality? Don’t we all have to work together with co workers to solve problems? Why can Congress only get something done when they have majorities in both the House and Senate? When Dave and I were active equal partners (now he’s my boss…yeah right) we would have differing opinions ALL the time on decisions we HAD to make for integrateIT. We didn’t have an option to just ignore the problem and deal with it in 2 years. We debated our points of view, and sometimes flat out argued about them until we arrived at some sort of a compromise that we felt was in the best interest of our company. Sometimes I walked away thinking I won, and sometimes I felt like I lost. It didn’t matter. We didn’t keep score. As long as at the end of the year we could sit down and see that we had another successful year we knew we did the right thing for integrateIT. I often scratch my head when I see how our government operates as it is clear they rarely have our best interests in mind.
This result should also tell the media that nobody trusts them and it would be great if they reported on the news and let us decide how we feel about it as opposed to having a narrative and forcing that down our throats (on both sides)….and it should lead to a ton of pollsters looking for new jobs. They were awful and the polling process is broken. It causes way more harm than good.
I know there are plenty out there that will disagree with my opinions….and that’s what used to make America great. Somewhere it became unacceptable for people to have different opinions. I have plenty of friends that are Republicans and plenty that are Democrats…and I plan to keep it that way. If you choose to isolate yourself and only be around people that share all of your views…enjoy your boring life.
