    "Trump Is Not My President!!"

    This takes me back to when President Obama was elected...and white people across the nation were crying, "...he's not my president; we've gotta take back our country." As if the U.S. had been invaded by some foreign force...and some dictator was in place. And we--black people--took offense to that. Now, we're praising other people for saying it...because we don't like the person elected. Well, guess what...unless you're planning on leaving the country, and giving up your citizenship, President-elect Trump will be the next president of the United States. Meaning, he'll be your president, just like he'll be every other U.S. citizen's president.

    We may not like it. We may even join the many protests going on. But, in the end, he's still the President-elect for the United States.

    We beat down Hillary. We told everyone who would listen, that she was a terrible candidate. We told people that there was no way that we would ever vote for her; she would be an extension of Bill's policies on Black America...and we couldn't have that.

    Now, we're upset that her opponent was elected.

    Well, if he's her opponent...and you don't want her, or anyone to vote for her...he is the only other option. You were going to get one or the other. If not her, him. Now we have to live with that reality.

    Electoral College: Make Hillary Clinton President on December 19

    Donald Trump has not been elected president. The real election takes place December 19, when the 538 Electoral College Electors cast their ballots – for anyone they want. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win....
    change.org



    On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine - which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!

    We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states' votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Why?

    Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.

    Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President.

    Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump "won" is because of the Electoral College.

    But the Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?

    That would be an interesting scenario. Can you imagine the fallout from such a change of vote? The Trump supporters would scream bloody murder.
