Well, another election has come and gone and once again the people have spoken. Unlike the last two presidential elections, this time I enjoyed the outcome, having cast my vote for President-Elect Donald Trump.
Now that the final election totals are in, let's look at a couple of Georgia's voting trends.

The Liberty County Chamber of Commerce recently chose George and Babs Holtzman to serve as the 2016 Christmas Parade Grand Marshall. Why, you might wonder?
Sometimes, it seems like we have forgotten what Thanksgiving is about. We should be thankful every day. Even the poorest of our poor is still far better off than many people in third world countries. I am not making light of the problems that many families face in our country, but we still have many things to be thankful for.
Editor: Many people think that because a columnist is syndicated, he knows what he is talking about. They don't. Such a column was in Wednesday's paper. The columnist claims under President-elect Trump hospitals will go broke and people will be without health care.

Thanksgiving is here, and I thought I'd get a jump on the crowd by offering up some things for which I am thankful in 2016.
The election-night coverage of the 2016 vote began with images of the Clinton campaign team gathering in the Javits Center - under the symbolic glass ceiling.

There's just this one little detail, however: the polls were wrong, and the party never happened.
Dear Gov. Deal:
For both Georgia and the United States as a whole, the election of Donald Trump as president is going to mean some major changes in our lives.
Editor, Well, the rollercoaster ride is over and many in this country were overwhelmed by the result.

The voters of America got it right when they elected Donald Trump the 45th President of the United States.

We ask much of our men and women in uniform, and they ask little in return. As a nation, we are ultimately responsible for ensuring whatever effects veterans suffer in the mission of defending our nation will be treated here at home. So on this Veterans Day, the question we must ask ourselves is: If veterans fought for our freedom, shouldn't we fight for theirs?
