I have never been an activist before. All my life, I’ve been content to vote every two years and shoot off my mouth perhaps once a week. But on November 8th, 2016 this country’s arcane¬†electoral college system enabled a fascist, demagog to claim victory, and thus Donald Trump became President-Elect of my United States of America.

Americans are famous for our quick response to aid the victims of natural disasters. Now, we ourselves are the victims of our own self-inflicted ¬†political disaster. My countrymen, we are better than this. We are not a nation of racist, sexist, xenophobes. We are not, and never have been, perfect. But we are a great people of a great nation, and I will not stand for a tyrant’s rule above us.

Why? Because, America, we are better than this!
