Bottom line: Needs to be done even if — especially if — it doesn’t change the outcome of the election.

Trump kept repeating during the campaign that if he didn’t win, then the whole system was rigged.

Doubts about the integrity of our system, including any peaceful transfer of powrt, relies on him being ptoven wrong.

He’s proven to be a double-talking ass. We the People need it affirmed that there was zero shenanigans either way.

He needs to understand that. 

He also needs to understand he is now an elected official, of a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. He, Donald Trump, has never had so many bosses over him.

He deserves his chance to serve as President, but he will be held to account. He’ll have 2 to 4 years.

I will only support, as an individual, what he does if I think it is Just or the only available solution to a major problem. 

Also: He is not the Messiah-King, annointed by God. 

Here on Earth we have Free Will. After an individual’s death, you are judged by God. Every thought and action is judged. 

He’s chosen to lie, lie, lie. Upon this mortal coil, he has achieved Earthly success and wealth through such actions. But, he can’t buy salvation. Does he understand?

“One Step Forward, Two Steps Back?”

“Come Together Right Now”

How far back does the phrase “we need to come together now” in relation to the aftermath of a Presidential election? And has it ever worked? For either Republicans or Democrats?

The Republicans hated Bill Clinton. Dug as far back into his past as possible, made mountains out of every mole hill they found. (And Bubba helped them out by his infidelity.)

Democrats hated George W. Bush, and everything he did or tried to do.

Republicans hated Barack Obama, and everything he did or tried to do..

At every point I remember hearing the call to “come together.”

Considering the grievances both sides have with each other, if no one is stressing finding common ground and working together to find solutions to common problems, even compromising where we can, “come together” tends to sound like “Kneel before Zod.” Or, if you prefer a more recent pop-culture reference, “Bring me my ax!”
