Get/Don’t Get

I get

  • Feeling good and temporarily even a bit superior because your candidate won
  • Feeling sad that an issue you feel strongly about is not seen the same way by a majority of others
  • Subscribing to traditional teachings from a trusted source, whether it’s church, family, or something else

I don’t get

  • Being ungracious about your candidate’s having lost and excusing it because “you wouldn’t have been gracious if my candidate had won”
  • Implying that everyone is sad about a particular candidate’s victory, even though that candidate handily carried your state
  • Claiming to know exactly what God thinks about all this

Here's your chance to say something.
