You are Done, Mr. President.
Tomorrow we are done with you. In the 2016 election, the American people were ambivalent, taking all too much for granted about our government. You read their mood and even though you lost the popular vote, you played the game well enough to win the electoral college. Well, Mr. President, those days are over. You won the presidency but you lost the country.
And now we’re back!!! And stronger and better than ever.
So many of us have been anxious about this election, fearing that your chicanery would work and we would be stuck with your misconduct and crookedness in the White House for another four years.
However, anxiety has given way to affirmation. You have awakened a democratic spirit so strong that your attempts to orchestrate the election outcome will fail because we have written the symphony and its sweet music is going to play through to the finale.
I am just one of the hundreds of thousands of Americans who phone banked or text banked or filled out post cards until the wee hours of the morning, or who marched and rallied, wrote letters, called legislators, organized advocacy groups, all of which resulted in a base of power too inalienable to overcome.
We even have our own Proud Boys. Our proud boys are the young men and women who lost high school mates in a mass shooting. Instead of picking up a gun, they organized “March for Our Lives” and immediately began to advocate for gun control. Their numbers have grown. They are now a prominent interest group and they voted, Mr. President.
You woke Americans up and we are going to walk you out.
But, even if the worst happened, and your treachery worked to put you back into the highest office in the land, it won’t matter. Americans are aroused and vigilant and will never let you get away with breaking down our institutions of government again. Never.
Regardless of party or gender or race or religion or ethnicity or economics, we are stalwart in our commitment to control our democracy.
You don’t begin to understand what these long lines are about or why people are dancing in the rain as they wait to cast their ballot. Our democracy is stronger not weaker because of you. Our democratic values are expanding not contracting because of you. Our love of country is more firmly crystallized because of you.
Mr. President, you are done.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
