Protests, Recounts, Investigations: Why?

First there were protests (though some of that was an expression of angst in general).

Now there are recounts and investigations.

It seems all kinds of messy, as democracy usually is.  But at this point, with a reactionary as president-elect, it feels as if we must do everything we can to make sure history, and the world, knows we tried.

It matters, at the end of the day, that we went to great lengths, exhausted every avenue available to make sure this person did not get into the respected oval office.The stakes are huge and costly.   The future of our nation, it’s vibrancy, it’s leadership, it’s weight on the world stage, is wholly fragile and we’ve just elected a reality television star to run the show, which he’s so far running in true reality television form.

I don’t expect anything to change as far as the electoral vote is concerned.   It would be prudent for us as a nation for the president elect to be investigated:  his business ties are too embedded with one of our adversaries, for one.  And, well, his business ties in general make for a fluid crossover between Commander in Chief and Chief Executive Officer.  Email or call  (202) 224-4543 Elizabeth Warren’s office and encourage her to continue the investigation.

Yours,

Frankie
