… because you might get it. Now that Donald Trump is our President-elect, a number of us need to adjust our attitude.
Did you vote for him? Or did you vote against him?
Or did you stay home because you thought your vote didn’t matter? The Washington Post recently noted that 100 million Americans decided not to vote; here’s a link. That’s roughly 43% of the electorate. What I hadn’t seen anywhere until today is someone saying that had these stay-at-homes voted, the election would likely have turned out quite different.
I would submit that if the election of Trump angers you, don’t go out into the streets thereby giving the idiot Anarchists a chance to commit crime and vandalism. Instead, join the ACLU, contribute to and help out a food bank, help out at a homeless shelter, join an organization like World Vision, join UNICEF. Make a difference, while you’re making a statement.
One other thing to consider: We as citizens, still have access to our Congress through our letters and emails. We also have freedom of the press. Combine these two and you can hold your Congressmen (and women) to account. We also have a moral compass (as long as we don’t listen to fake news). Let’s use all of these in equal measure.
