We (my family and myself), personally have much to be thankful for. I won't belabor you with that.
On a larger scale, keeping Hillary out of the presidency.
Electing someone who will undo the horrid Obama legacy.
Watching leftards heads explode over the results of the election.
So much more, I could go on, but I just hope that this is only the beginning of the rollback of leftist insanity.
Let us be thankful for the death of Castro. From Instapundit...
GOOD RIDDANCE TO FIDEL CASTRO, Cuba’s Brutal Big Brother.
If this were a just world, 13 facts would be etched on Castro’s tombstone and highlighted in every obituary, as bullet points — a fitting metaphor for someone who used firing squads to murder thousands of his own people.
●He turned Cuba into a colony of the Soviet Union and nearly caused a nuclear holocaust.
●He sponsored terrorism wherever he could and allied himself with many of the worst dictators on earth.
●He was responsible for so many thousands of executions and disappearances in Cuba that a precise number is hard to reckon.
●He brooked no dissent and built concentration camps and prisons at an unprecedented rate, filling them to capacity, incarcerating a higher percentage of his own people than most other modern dictators, including Stalin.
●He condoned and encouraged torture and extrajudicial killings.
●He forced nearly 20 percent of his people into exile, and prompted thousands to meet their deaths at sea, unseen and uncounted, while fleeing from him in crude vessels.
●He claimed all property for himself and his henchmen, strangled food production and impoverished the vast majority of his people.
●He outlawed private enterprise and labor unions, wiped out Cuba’s large middle class and turned Cubans into slaves of the state.
●He persecuted gay people and tried to eradicate religion.
●He censored all means of expression and communication.
●He established a fraudulent school system that provided indoctrination rather than education, and created a two-tier health-care system, with inferior medical care for the majority of Cubans and superior care for himself and his oligarchy, and then claimed that all his repressive measures were absolutely necessary to ensure the survival of these two ostensibly “free” social welfare projects.
●He turned Cuba into a labyrinth of ruins and established an apartheid society in which millions of foreign visitors enjoyed rights and privileges forbidden to his people.
●He never apologized for any of his crimes and never stood trial for them.
But he was a lefty, so it’s all okay. Just like with Venezuela.
One thing we should all be thankful for is living in a country where the transition of power is peaceful and does not involve tanks, death-squads, violence, or outright civil war.
However, democrat leftists, but I repeat myself, would like to change that. They have been deluging electors with nasty e-mails and death threats. So as to change their votes.
These idiots are:
A. Proving that we voted correctly.
B. Are verifying beyond any doubt that they are the elitist, anti-freedom, socialists we always knew they were.
C. Playing with fire.
