How Did This Happen?
Did Hillary lose because the undecided decided at the last minute that the greatest nation in the world still wasn’t ready for a woman in the White House? Was the election rigged? Did the Dems sit home on their hands instead of going to vote?
The polls? If you’d like to see how pollsters such as Mason Dixon can manipulate anyone to say most anything, please contact me. I’ll send you proof.
The media decimated this election both nationally and in each state. Months ago we questioned why they allowed the Man Who Would Be King to control his message on air, online and on the radio. They gave him the Golden Ticket to say what he wanted, when he wanted and from where he wanted - though never it seemed, in person, in studio. Those same outlets are now shaking their heads wondering what happened?
What we cannot do is run to the streets without permits, burn American flags or close down freeways. Demonstrations must be peaceful or we are just as bad, if not worse, than the very person we are protesting.
Last night’s protests showed the world we were angry, but without a definitive, unified, message in each city as to why people were in the streets other than they were angry, it was an opportunity lost.
We have much to save - and when we look at it like that, instead of what we have to lose, perhaps we organize the way any winning battle can - with positive energy, with a clear, concise one-voice message, with structure and with passion and with educated information for the media to help move our message forward.
When you have strength in numbers, you use that strength, you take the social media mic and you address not Trump, but our representatives in Washington to make sure this never, ever happens again. You let them know it is now their job to protect us in what will become the most contentious environment we most likely have ever experienced since the days of Nixon and the Viet Nam war. We have heard their rhetoric for years and yet, here we are.
