Last political post till after the election.
The majority rules in this country. We don't all agree with each other but we
accept that if a majority of people elect a President, that person becomes the
President. Those of us on the losing side must accept the outcome. If we don't
like the outcome, we have the right to say that out loud, print it, broadcast
it, blog it.
We do NOT have the right to arm ourselves and try to overthrow the government
or assassinate the winner of the election.
There are some asshole militia groups in Arizona threatening to do exactly that
if Hillary Clinton wins the election. Who the fuck do they think they are?
By the way, I would be asking the same question if some asshole militia group
wanted to overthrow the government and kill Trump if he won the election.
This country is great because we all can vote, because we all can debate
issues, because we all can work to find common ground. No one person has all
the answers, no one person has all the solutions to our problems. No group of
angry, gun-toting assholes has the right to interrupt the peaceful transition
of power from one elected President to another elected President.
If Trump wins, I will exercise my voting rights to do whatever I can to limit
his ability to fuck up our already great nation. I will write and speak my mind
to anyone who will listen. I will insult that asshole every day. But I will
also respect the 'will of the people'.
I just hope and pray that he does not win.
