I don’t even care anymore. Today’s National Day Calendar celebrates: “Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day” If only I felt like celebrating. Instead I curse everything that is national. I want no part in celebrating a nation that would have a fascist who did not win the popular vote as president.
Protests continue this weekend, as many more citizens than I feel the injustice of an electoral voting system which regardless of the fact that Hillary Clinton’s lead in popular votes is well over two million, has determined Donald Trump won the United States presidential election.
Protesters have met with the following response from Donald Trump, who tweeted: “very unfair“— Honestly, is that the most presidential rejoinder this evil man-child can come up with?
Inauguration Day is January 20, 2016…the date his regime becomes official. I wonder how long it will be before they start rounding up the people who have publicly denounced him? Perhaps I should get my affairs in order in preparation for my imprisonment.
It may not come to that though. I still hold out a slim hope that on December 19, 2016 the members of the electoral college will not cast their votes for Trump, but instead cast their votes for the person with the popular vote- Clinton…and if they can’t get themselves to vote Clinton, perhaps they’ll abstain from voting altogether. This is still America, which was founded on Democracy. Relax- I realize that we are a republic, but we are a republic formed with the principles of democracy. Democracy is the rule of the majority and Donald Trump lost the popular vote.
Now, please pass the anchovies.
Incase you haven’t signed it, this is a link to sign the petition telling the members of the United States electoral college that we want a democratic vote—
