I got news for you folks (on both sides): whoever is elected President of this country IS the President. Not just for some of the people, but for ALL of the people, whether you like it or not.
It's no secret that I despise Donald Trump and what he stands for. I am still heartbroken and angry that he was elected, but I am an American and he is the President-elect of my country. Therefore, he will be my President.
That doesn't mean I will sit by idly while he destroys policies I believe in or takes actions I find deplorable. It means that as an American, I will give respect to the office of President, while I protest and fight back on things I don't believe are good for the country. That's my right and my duty.
If you don't like what's going down in this country, get off your ass and stop ranting and raving on Facebook and Twitter, getting into word wars with other desk jockeys. Put your actions where your mouth is and get involved. Unfriending someone gets nothing done. Doing something productive and planned might.
- Run for office or help your candidates get elected in two years, in four years. Campaigns always need volunteers.
- Support the agencies threatened by donating your time and money.
- Let your representatives in Washington know how you feel BEFORE they vote.
- Organize peaceful activities to protest these changes.
Be PROACTIVE, not REACTIVE. GET INVOLVED!
Oh, and Mr. Trump, I'm watching you!
