The title of my blog post today is from a poem that I read many years ago. This was on my mind this morning, when I woke up, and remembered the day that I had voted for Hillary to be our next president — I wore purple and red that day: a red hat with a purple coat.
In the weeks before the election night, Wiki-Leaks was leaking news about the Democrats, but not about the Republicans. Wiki-Leaks was revealing bad thing about Hillary, but strangely, there were no leaks about Trump. It was at this time that TCM came out with film footage in which Trump revealed his “pussy grabbing” history. He said “when you’re a star, they let you do it. ”
Many people including me, think that Putin was involved with Wiki Leaks, and that he was “hacking” the election. It was Wiki Leaks that also revealed information about Hillary’s e-mail server and her e-mail messages. I knew that it was not a crime to have an e-mail server; I had such a server myself, at one time.
My voting place was less than a mile from my house — I could have walked there, but instead my son drove me there — in a red car. He parked the car near the door into the building and I walked up a long ramp, after declining a wheel chair. There was a very long hallway that we had to walk through. There were no direction signs up yet, but there was a young woman there who gave us directions.
When we reached the polling place, I was asked if I needed help to mark my ballot, and to put it into the ballot box. I declined all help — I wanted to do it myself.
After I voted, I was given a sticker to put on my coat, to show that I had voted. These stickers were in many different languages, including English. After voting, my son and I went to a local restaurant and had coffee along with a hearty meal.
As I sipped my coffee, I was hoping that I had just voted for the first woman president of the United States of America. The final count for the election showed that Hillary had gotten 2.9 million MORE votes than The Donald, but he won because of our electoral college voting system.
On the night of the election, all the pundits were predicting that Hillary would win the election. When I went to bed on the night of the election, Hillary had 2.3 million more votes than Trump, but all night long, Trump had been chanting that he would win. When I woke up, on the morning of the election, I found that Trump had been right: he had won the election.
How did Trump know that he would win? “When you are a star, they let you do it!”
