Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–November 15, 2016
Pinkie to mouth and he would be Dr. Evil from “Austin Powers”
A little over a month from now, the 538 Electoral College members will come together and throw in their “votes” to choose our next president. By that time, Hillary Clinton will have somewhere around 2,000,000 more citizen votes than Donald Trump. David Wasserman over at the Cook Political Report has been keeping an up-to-date tally of the 2016 presidential election vote counts here. As of this diary, Hillary Clinton has 61,964,263 votes while Donald Trump has 60,961,967. Using my fingers, that comes out to a 1,002,296 vote lead for the Democratic nominee. That number will continue to grow.
There are a few things to take away from this fact.
- Hillary Clinton was the choice for president of the United States over Donald Trump in the majority of voters’ minds.
- As bad as it feels that white supremacists are about to have the keys and the driver’s seat, they still do not represent the majority of Americans. In fact, less than 25% of the people in our country actually voted for Trump.
- We have a chance to unify the left and the more moderate middle of our country in a way we have not see in decades.
The last time we had a president voted in without popular support from the citizens of the United States, we ended up with two wars, axis of evils, a destabilized Middle East that has turned into ISIS, and a bankrupted economy being supported by the most disproportionate income gaps since the Great Depression. There are numerous things you can do. Our petitions surrounding Clinton’s popular vote and the Electoral College have ballooned in a very short time. The time to organize and move forward is now. There are marches to participate in your area. There are letters to be written to your representatives. This is our life, our children’s futures, our America.
