Elections have consequences

23 January 2009: President Obama “Elections have consequences.”
Obama’s words to Republicans after he won the 2008 election. I don’t know if President Trump has borrowed this quote, but perhaps he should, because almost two years later Democrats still haven’t accepted that Trump won and they will have to live with the consequences.
As we are now approximately one month from mid-term elections, there are several elections right here in Pitt County and eastern North Carolina that are important. No, there’s no presidential election but the candidates running for seats that affect Pitt County can have an impact on our lives at the local and state level.
The last several years have shown a trend among Democrats: they don’t support law enforcement. Democrats want to eliminate ICE and they want open borders. As I’ve written before, open borders and allowing unfettered immigration is unsustainable. The Republicans on the other hand are the law and order party.
Pitt County early voting begins in just a few days. Republicans, Christians, conservatives and all who believe in and support law enforcement, protecting public and private property and addressing a myriad of problems that exist here in Pitt County, which is a microcosm of our nation, need to research candidates who are running in their areas and choose a candidate whose values are like your own.
As American citizens, we have the right and privilege to cast a vote. Every election is important. Doesn’t matter if it is a mid-term or a presidential election. Your vote matters. Go cast your vote and hopefully we can sit back and at an opportune moment use the quote: “Elections have consequences”.
Oh, a consequence of the 2016 election that may have gone unnoticed, two consecutive quarters of 4 percent-plus GDP growth.
