I went searching tonight for voices from America that could present alternate views on the results of Tuesday’s US Election. I was looking for the non-journalist view, people that had a view point and wanted express it. Below are three blogs that reflect three different outlooks for America. I hope that you’ll take a look at each of them as listening to what a non-journalist says can give us much more insight into what we might expect leading up to and after the inauguration in January.
The first is from a blog called “The Politics of Writing”, I have reblogged posts from this writer in the past. Here the blog takes the voice of those that were hoping for Hillary Clinton to find a path to 270. This will certainly cause a few Republicans to tell the writer to stop whining and accept the loss.
Of course you know I have to swing right for number two, it is a post from The Last Refuge a piece that calls itself “An Important Post-Election Message about Media Polling…” The Last Refuge is from the Conservative Treehouse, so you know what you are getting here. They call themselves a rat-tag group of misfits. I figured after reading the first contributor you should have a little something from the right.
The third and last is “The Morning After” by Tommy Tomlinson a writer for ESPN, so he writes mainly about sports so I figured he would fit into what I was trying to accomplish with this post. His piece strikes a chord that should resonate with most who are just looking for a way to navigate the next four years.
