A cold, cloudy day of gloom ushered in a bright and shining future for America as Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, and the symbolism provided by nature could not have been more prescient.
As the Obama administration fades into history, our nation has a future that is no longer limited to what the government will allow us to do, and not dictated by what the government orders us to do, but returns the nation to a state more closely aligned with the Constitution and the liberties promised under it to American citizens, and the controls and limitations the Constitution places on government.
Trump’s acceptance speech was to the point, harsh, plain-spoken and just what we needed to hear from the man who plans to return the nation, after an eight-year gap in which the former president tried to “fundamentally transform America”, to greatness. One prays that he will move swiftly and immediately, to undo the entire Obama “Legacy”, from Obamacare to the Iran nuke deal, to close our borders down immediately and completely, and shut down the EPA by withholding funds from that leftist, anti-American, radical organization.
After eight years of a badly divided, highly unemployed and much less wealthy America, trying to function under the abusive and anti-American Obama administration, the symbolism of the dark and failed Obama administration being swept out on a wave of anti-Obama sentiment by the voters, is significant.
But a second opinion of the cloudy day symbolism was given by Franklin Graham following a prayer he gave at the end of the event: he said that the Bible often considers rain, which began falling just as Trump stepped to the podium to give his speech, to be a sign from God’s blessing. So either way, the Trump administration is off to a good, honest start.
