FACT: A democracy is a system of government by the majority of the population, the people.
Since Hilary Clinton did in fact win by the popular vote, but she is not our President-Elect, there can be no doubt that we who are citizens of these United States are not members of a democracy!
Too many of us have sat at the “table” and allowed the political system to “feed” us a plate piled high and overflowing with a serving of savory, steaming dung!
Hm, so I ask: How are you enjoying this truly surreal “dish of dung?”
My vote did NOT matter in General Election 2016! And if yours was one of the 2.5+ million popular votes for Hilary Clinton, then neither did yours!
Well, it is one month since General Election 2016 results–and for me there is still an offensive stench at the table and a gross and repulsive aftertaste in my mouth!
The electoral system in this country is long overdue for a total “flush!” Think about this: Its very foundation–its birth–is built on dysfunction: i.e., illogic, sexism, racism, elitism, corruption, intolerance, exclusion, and injustice.
If we are to end our hypocrisy and become a truly democratic nation, the electoral college must be “euthanized” and re-built using the concepts of basic arithmetic (you know, 1+1), logic, inclusion, and justice at its core.
In this new electoral system, the individual vote of every man and every woman who cares enough to get up, go out, wait in line, and cast a vote for their candidate is acknowledged and counted for!
I am here and my voice should matter! Shouldn’t yours too?
When every single person who cares enough to make the effort to show up and to engage in the process is counted for, this is true Democracy.
So the real question is this: When are we going to live up to our hype?
And if you are interested, here is why I casted my vote for her!
