Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
Those of us who live in the United States — and probably many others around the globe — are on pins and needles about the outcome of yesterday’s presidential election. I know that I have been unable to focus on much else, as I truly believe the future of America and the free world is at stake.
I wrote this post on Monday afternoon and have scheduled it to be published at 3 a.m. Pacific time on Wednesday morning. Thus, I don’t know what actually happened on Tuesday. By the time this post is published, the voting places will have been closed for hours, although it’s quite possible that we still won’t definitively know who won.
That said, we may have some inkling about the outcome. So my provocative question this week is simply this.
What do you think about what happened in the United States yesterday? Are you shocked or surprised at the outcome, if it’s even known as you read this? Or are the results of the election what you expected? And finally, are you happy or unhappy?
If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments. But remember to check to confirm that your pingback or your link shows up in the comments.
