1. Liberals: Do not tell conservatives it's time to 'Come Together'- we all know you mean 'give up on what you believe in and support my ideals' or 'we won, so shut up'. I'd like to remind you of something our MIA Secretary of State Said:
“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”
2. "I felt like I was going to puke" is the MOST common response I've received from all of my conservative friends about this election. I'm not talking 1 or 2 people, half of the people I've talked to since Tuesday, via email, text, phone or face to face have said "As soon as I heard Obama had won I felt like I was going to vomit" This is not the same reaction supporters of McCain had in 2008, nor when Clinton won in 1992. Obama supporters do not fully comprehend how emotionally invested Romney supporters were. Not Mormon Romney supporters- the MAJORITY of Romney supporters.
In short: before you tell me how Obama isn't a liberal and how I should carry on optimistically about his presidency give me a freakin' week to lick my wounds.
3. After Obama's re-election was official I turned to my husband and said "if you want a particular gun- buy it-buy it now" On November 7th he sat on hold for 1.5 hours waiting to talk to a sales rep at a particular shop- to find out the gun he wants now has a 9 month waiting list. Looks like we weren't the only ones who's first reaction to the election was to buy a gun. I want it strictly from an investment standpoint- and given the president's first act as president elect- I'd say it's a good call.
4. The stocks plummeting to as a reaction to the European financial crisis on the very day after Obama wins re-election is the same coincidence that there were spontaneous riots to a random YoutTube video on 9/11. Boeing announces major layoffs the day after the election. Tell yourself whatever lies make you feel better- but they don't make us feel better- and don't tell me they should- see number 1.
I don't want this country to fail- I don't want our president to fail. But for the love of Pete, if you supported Obama, and you won- please sit silently in your smug victory and be a gracious winner, Even 5 year old soccer teams once they win go over and give the other team a high-five and say 'Good game' not "suck it up- we won".
