If you've listened to my show enough, or are friends with me on Facebook (if not, look me up!), you'll know that I'm got big issues of concern with Donald Trump. For the first time in my voting life, I did not cast a vote for either major party candidate for President. I wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton for numerous reasons, most significantly her extremism on abortion, and I wouldn't vote for Donald Trump, for a list of reasons you can probably guess. I'm not telling anyone else how they should have voted--that's up to the discernment of your own conscience.
I've tried not to jump to conclusions now that DJT has been elected. I'm hoping, of course, that those who say, "Take Trump seriously and not literally" are right, and that he is going to back way off many of his outrageous campaign promises. While I think it strange that anyone would vote for a candidate with the assumption that he or she is lying, I'm willing to set that aside and let things unfold.
I'm also trying not to rush to judgment regarding Steve Bannon, former head of Breitbart News and Trump's recently named strategic advisor, particularly regarding his ties and alleged sympathies to the "alt-right" movement. I'll admit to be largely ignorant of the nature of the self-titled alt-right movement, but here are a couple of articles that give me serious pause about having Bannon as an integral part of White House affairs. The first is an article by a member of the alt-right, published at Breitbart, that gives a basic primer on the movement. The second is an article by Ian Tuttle, columnist at the conservative National Review, with his concerns.
Read carefully, friends, and understand that ideas (and elections) have consequences.
