This is a difficult time for us but this article in the Washington Post might bring some solace, perspective, and direction for the coming days. Click on this link:Trump supporters will not like what happens next.
We are ecstatic to know that Hillary Clinton won the Popular Vote (she got the MOST votes) in this election, while Donald Trump won the Electoral Vote. In fact, Hillary received more votes than any Presidential candidate in history except for President Obama. The majority of those who voted chose Hillary Clinton but we must instead settle for SECOND BEST Donald Trump because of the Electoral College. Hillary received almost 3 MILLION more votes than did Donald Trump. To find out more Click on this link:Huffington Post - Final Popular Vote Shows Hillary Clinton won by almost 3 Million Votes
Why should, and why are Americans settling for second best? Donald Trump only received 24% of the votes. Fifty percent of people who where eligible to vote in this presidential election did not. The electoral vote only takes place at the Presidential level and no where else in our republic, and as a matter of fact no where else in the world. Donald Trump only represents 24% of those who were eligible to vote this election which, we suppose, makes him the Minority President. What can we do? The Electoral Vote needs to be eliminated and we can do this. Be sure to read more about what WE CAN Do by clicking on this link: Remove the Electoral College
GOOD NEWS! A Bill is being introduced to Eliminate the Electoral College. Click here to find out more: Remove the Electoral College

As blogger Lorraine Devon Wilke has stated in her blog post "Our Task in 2017: Be better Americans than our incoming President." To find out more on how NOT to be like Donald Trump Click Here.
