I am one of the, by latest count, 59,755,284 that voted for Hillary Clinton. I am in the majority, which would count for something in a true democracy.
I agree with Donald Trump, who tweeted in 2012, "The Electoral College is a disaster for a democracy." Truly ironic, circa 2016.
The current disaster leaves the United States with a future President who came across during the election process as:
Disrespectful to a Muslim Gold Star family, a disabled reporter, Mexican men, every woman ever who does more than appear at his side in silent, ornamental fashion.
A disaster, but, yet again, we have to move forward with reality, no matter how dark and terrifying, on January 20, 2017.
For now, I grieve.
