Am I missing something?....

OK, here's the deal.....
I am patriotic.
Painfully so at times.
I well-up when they play the National anthem at ballgames,
I get choked up when I hear "I'm proud to be an American..."
and I don't even care that much for country songs
(although I have loved me a David Allan Coe song or two, but that's another story).
I can get emotional when the
commercial is flying a flag,
and don't even get me started when there are military personnel around....
I simply LOVE this country.
I would die for this country,
and I would never ask anyone else to do the same.
It is just how I am......
Now on to the meat of the matter...
I am over, completely over, these people who refuse to "give up the dog".
They are "beating a dead horse" over what they see as the loss of the nation to the other party.
I am sorry, I don't get it.
I didn't vote for him, but he is clearly My President, PERIOD.
This is how democracy works, people.
Let's all be good sports and support the fairly elected candidate,
and get over our bad attitudes, shall we?
If I am going to be an American,
I must play by the rules, and accept the majority rule....
How hard is that?
The fact is, no one man to us into this,
and no one man can get us out of this.....
We must all work together.
There is my soap box for today.
Thank you.
