Your vote is your voice, let it be heard.
Donald J Trump has won enough electoral votes (290 over HRC’s 228) to become the 45th President of the United States, defeating Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, wife of the former U.S. President Bill Clinton. Down ticket race results favored Republicans on the Federal and State level. Republicans now control the House and Senate, along with the White House. A seismic change in leadership occurred on Tuesday, November 8th. With this change, comes the sour. As the news of the election results spread, Love Trumps Hate was quickly abandoned in favor of riots; along with accusations of racism, bigotry, misogyny and homophobia of those who did not vote for the Democrat presidential nominee. As in 2000 and 2004, the media is questioning the need for the electors college system after this election.
For those not familiar with this system, here is a video that describes the role and function of Electoral College Votes:
Democrats still seeking a way for Hillary to regain the White House are circulating a Change.org petition to have Electors ignore the votes of everyday American’s and change their Electoral College selection to Hillary Clinton, therefore giving her the Electoral Votes needed for her to become President. The bargaining stage of grief, I suppose.
In every election, there is a winner and loser. Adults throwing tantrums over Hillarys’ presidential loss is not productive, never will be. I’ve been on the losing side of campaigns as well. You cannot follow politics and not get burned. I know exactly the bone deep bitter disappointment that accompanies a political loss. For those feeling the burn after this election, I found this article from Independent Journal Review to have practical, positive tips on dealing with your loss.
On that note, a new day dawns and it is time for ALL Americans to get back to living our lives and pursuing our dreams. That is the essence of America that I will never, ever give up on. Neither should you, no matter who you voted for in this election.
