A First in America: The President Demands That The Election Be Overturned

When a political leader demands that an election be changed to favor them, it usually does not happy in the United States. It usually occurs in another country, thousands of miles away, where democracy and human rights are on shaky ground.

For the first time in this country’s history, the President has demanded that the will of the voters be ignored so he can have another four years in office.

What is worse is that 17 states have filed a lawsuit to overturn the results of the election.

I don’t know what is worse, the tantruming man-child we have to refer to as President or those who continue to support this wasteful and fruitless effort to protect their careers.

The scariest thing I find about this unnecessary dragging out of the election is that you know who may not be the first politician with autocratic tendencies. Someone may come along in the future, who is slicker and smarter than he is, and actually destroy the democracy that is the foundation of the United States.

I don’t know what it will take to wake this country up, but we must do it sooner than later. If we don’t, then the country we love maybe forever consigned to the history books.
