Well now you have it, the election results. Blue tsunami: red wave, red tsunami: blue wave equaled a purple pond. The result is nothing to be shocked about and was an entirely logical outcome to a country that has polarizing ideas competing for traction. There are so many ways to twist the results to claim victory by each party when the reality is it shows a bigger picture. America has had its driver seat chauffeured by politicians from both parties with agendas of their own not of Americas agenda. Americans have decided the chauffeur has got to go. That has meant many political changes to the landscape of America. This election has caused the Democratic party to embrace some candidates it wouldn’t have normally embraced, in order to gain and retain power and has made some Republican re-think their agendas to align more with the Anti-establishment Trump train. All around chaos and change resulted in exactly what our system is designed to do, essentially a stalemate. Does that mean there are not some lessons to learn from last nights election? Yes, I think there are. Americans want changes and they went to the polls to say so. Voter turnout for a non-Presidential election is being reported as being much higher this year than in decades. Turnout is the big picture not the colors of who won. Americans are getting involved to create change and change is coming. What that change will be remains to be seen.
