  1. The popular vote has Hillary Clinton leading by more than two million votes.

    2016 National Popular Vote Tracker : Overall Vote%s

    • 46% did not vote.
      4% voted for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson
      2 million more voted for Hillary than Trump.

      Let’s do the math – shall we?

      46% + 4% = 50%

      Which leaves 50%

      Hillary got 2 million more – which means Trump won with less than 25% of the vote.

      So – exactly where is this mandate Trump and Republicans keep cock-strutting about?

    Oh and that’s not all. SCIENTISTS are now suggesting that models indicate that elections in three key swing States were hacked in key counties. A call for a recount is underway and crowdfunding for it approaches 4 million dollars less than two days after the site was set up. Could a billionaire with ties to Russian hackers steal an election? This seems like something we really ought to know more about.
    For his part, Trump keeps to youtube. You know? A format where he can’t be asked questions in real time? He has high words about healing and coming together! Oh but the same video has comments disabled! So for the millions who are NOT so much into this coming together call? Yeah, he don’t wanna hear from you. Message received Donald. We are coming together and there will be healing….whether we like it or not.
    Uh no Donald (dammit spellcheck, quit making me capitalize his name!) no, we will not be coming together. I HOPE YOU FAIL!

  3. So the fact of our election process is “that slavery is no long with us in our government but it is still with us in our election process.” BOO HISS!

    Call for a recount AND the funds to pay for it. Oh electors? Are you paying attention?
    IF the States involved will allow it (and why shouldnt they if it is paid for) it is a long time until December 19 when the electors vote in the election that “really” counts. The science, if allowed, should be done by then.
    Now I KNOW Trump so wants to react to this, to try and stomp on it. This may explain why he is now more than two days without a tweet. They have taken it from him again. But some of his supporters are already reacting. I hear their calls to talk radio. Some of them at least are getting nervous.
    Does this go where SO many would like it to? likely not. But if it makes Trump and his supporters rattled and ultimately illegitimate. Worth it, TOTALLY.
