I fully expected Hillary Clinton to eek out a slim victory in the election and I would spend this time talking about reforming the system so we can expect better candidates in the future. Donald Trump blew that out of the water by winning in an upset. I’ve decided to continue to call for reform but this will be my last political blog post for awhile. I need a break.

I plan to stick with church and state issues for now but I won’t be posting about anything concerning national politics after today. My head hurts.

The Republicans have been running with the idea that the attack on the Benghazi consulate, in 2012 which led to four deaths including the U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, is somehow as bad as Watergate, the Holocaust, and the burning of the Reichstag.
