UNHAPPY WITH THE CANDIDATE WHO
WON THE ELECTION?
June 16, 2017
One thing everybody
should have learned in life: The candidate you like doesn’t
always win. There may be lots of different reasons that a
candidate lost, but the campaign should always look first for
their own mistakes – not trying to blame everybody else. Or
maybe you should take a look at your own prior actions – or
e-mails (hacked or not you wrote them) – or the politics of your
predecessor many voters obviously disliked. Ever figured that
many folks don’t like politicians handing out free rides at the
expense of the tax-payers or neighbors? Blaming everybody else
for the loss makes you a sore loser – nothing else.
You think the
election wasn’t fair – not done according to laws and rules?
Go to court – or go
to arbitration – especially if you have a whole staff of lawyers
at your disposal. Otherwise shut up!
I personally wasn’t
happy with the candidate that was elected 9 years ago. Does it
mean that I burned and trashed other peoples’ property – or
threatened the elected candidate with punching him in the face?
It never even crossed my mind!
DEMOCRACY – and we should be willing to accept the
election results – be it in a community association or in
But do I really
blame these morons that hold violent demonstrations and think
they are doing this country a favor? Or insult the elected
candidate and his family?
Actually, I blame
our liberal media who makes “heroes” out of the folks who are in
my opinion not much better than terrorists, especially when they
take their little kids with them to create havoc, calling it a
Our media –
especially the so-called cable news-channels, cheer these folks
on and encourage them to create even more havoc.
SPEECH is a good thing, if used correctly. Hiding
insults and false statements behind the cover-up of FREE
SPEECH is wrong – and sure isn’t helpful to create the
peace in our country we hopefully all want.
A good start to make
much needed changes in the pattern of behavior towards an
elected candidate would be if the big-mouthed “celebrities”
would really keep their promise of moving out of our country if
a certain candidate got elected. Good riddance – most of them
are pretty useless anyway.
Our society has to
learn again to be nice to each other and accept the decisions
they can’t change in the first place – especially not with
violence and insults!
Or is violence a way
we should accept – and just live with it?
I really don’t think
so! Let’s just be again: “..
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all"
and go on with our
lives – peacefully!
No matter if we are
talking about the board president of our community association
or the President of the United States of America. Please – let’s
just live in peace!
||Jan Bergemann is president of Cyber Citizens For Justice,
's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group.
CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in
associations. He moved to
in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the
developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues
for his own purposes. End of retirement!
CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in
- finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a
member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.
The organization has two websites to inform interested
homeowners and condo owners:
News Website: http://www.ccfj.net/.
Educational Website: http://www.ccfjfoundation.net/.
We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all
service providers surely have a different interest! We are
trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are
useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking
