Minnesota Musing: Analyzing the Opinions About the New President Elect

Updated on December 24, 2016

Opinions in the News

As a voter, I was interested in the results of the new election of President. I voted in the election and waited for the counts to be in.

I will be honest. The candidate that I voted for, did not win. The candidate that did win, did some apologizing for his behavior during the campaigns and gave kudos to his opponent for fighting the good fight.

As an American, I will support the new President.

Unrest in the United States

It seems that there has been a lot of fighting in the United States in the last few months about who got the majority of the vote.There has been a lot of immature activity going on. A lot of people doing a lot of ankle biting and rock kicking.

It's embarrassing.

The Singers for the Inauguration

The latest news, is the news that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was requested to sing at the Inauguration.

It has also been noted that they criticized the President elect previous to being elected. The opinion voiced is that they should not sing at the inauguration since the values of the new President do not jibe with the values of the Mormon Church.

There are people pressuring the singers not to sing. There are petitions being signed.

Let's Be Real for a Moment

If you ask the person sitting next to yourself, if they like music, they may look at you and say, "Yes, I like music." If you ask yourself, "Do I like music?" the answer may be yes, also.

When you analyze who is singing on the radio, do you know them personally? Do you know what they ate for breakfast that morning? Do you know what comments they made to their spouse before they left for work?

Or. Even better yet. Do you ask yourself if they went to Church the last weekend. Do you ask yourself if they made any comments about anyone at any time. Does that affect if you listen to the radio or not?

Having the Right Opinion

Since every Church out there has people who have opinions about events, and none of the people have the same opinions, the question had been posed whether the choir should sing for the Inauguration.

The Inauguration is a ceremony. It has quality entertainment. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has grown to be a prestigious organization, recognized for its achievements in the world of songsters. It is a honor to be involved in the event.

The Choir itself, is not the focus of the event.

Yes - They Should Sing

Yes. My opinion is that they should sing.

Make America Great Again

There is a song that I hope that they sing at the Inauguration that will probably bring tears to America's Proud eyes.

How Great Thou Art would be an appropriate song, don't you think?

How Great Thou Art

      Peoplepower: Thank you for your comment. They may have sold out, but, on the other hand... they will have the floor. Billions of people will be listening to their words as they sing... and that, is a wonderful thing.

      The choir represents a collective body of people who have a set of values and belief systems. Why should they be asked and told to go against those values and beliefs? The evangelicals sold out to Trump because they were led to believe that Hillary was more evil than Trump and to overlook his worst actions and behavior just on the belief of his promise to make America great again, which may or may not happen.

      A very provocative article.

      I don't think those who are so petty as to be upset with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir realize they are only hurting themselves. Democrats and Liberals seem to not understand they need to find a way to appeal to the other side, and not just push them away more. From the protests to the recounts to threatening members of the Electoral College, these people have shown they have no class and no dignity. They've all acted like children throwing a tantrum. I think they need to know that doing this only makes Trump stronger. To his base of support, Trump is looking like a strong leader who can endure anything the left throws at him. His base of support is also growing. The more this petty behavior continues, the longer Republicans will be in control. It is they who are appearing to be the adults in this situation.
