Yes, some of us are angry. Yes, some of us are devastated. Yes, some of us fear socialism. Yes, some of us are uncertain about the country’s future now that it is sufficiently clear, whether there was a rigged election or not, that the president-elect is Joe Biden. Yet, some of us surprisingly fear Kamala Harris more than Biden. The point is, our current president would do the country a favor, to both Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, moderates and people who just do not seem to care, if he conceded finally the defeat of his campaign for the presidency.
Without a doubt, most of the American people are fatigued hearing about the elections. Never have we been through such stress as a people. Both campaigns made their message sound like the end of the world. “If you don’t vote for me, fascists and careless people will take over,” or, “If you don’t vote for me, socialism and antifa will rule the streets.” Both campaigns preached the many unethical ways of voting this way or that way.
There is something we Americans, unfortunately, must understand and hopefully begin to comprehend. That is, for the past 35 years or so, the presidency has always gone through a simple mantra, “meet the new boss, same as the old boss.” Perfect example can be Barack Obama. Some of his policies angered Democrats and liberals themselves and nearly resembled the warmongering of the Bush years.
Health care, immigration, taxes, they have all one thing in common. They have not undergone some revolution that either the left or right expect. All policies coming from the White House have been passed with some irksome moderation. Not exactly the social revolution the likes of Bernie Sanders or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would expect.
President Trump is making matters worse. He is giving people the message that life under Biden would be miserable and brutish, and that is why it is necessary that he stay in power. Trump intensifies the political divide that we are already in by not conceding defeat. For those conservatives hoping to unseat Biden and Harris, they can find hope in 2022 and 2024. There is no need to defend something that has already been lost. The Trump campaign put up a good, brave fight. Now it is time to move on. It is time to focus on upcoming elections and policy maneuvers in Washington D.C.
