Elections: Hate vs. Hope Dec. 19th and Beyond

Sustained Action:  Welcome to December 19th and Beyond.



Movement.  The word has various definitions.  In perusing its meaning on Merriam-Webster, the one that seems to fit our President-elect best in this writer’s opinion is as follows:  the vibrant quality in literature that comes from elements that constantly hold a reader’s interest (as a quickly moving action-filled plot).  

Obama’s presidency was a snoozer compared to number 45’s run for the post.  Fit for reality television, Trump caught the attention of the GOP and media outlets vying for ratings with a brilliant panache.

“Trump has been a huge benefit to Republicans in some ways, bringing an unprecedented amount of attention to the first presidential primary debate last week. Some 24 million Americans tuned in to watch, more than most big-time sporting events, demonstrating a clear curiosity about Trump’s campaign but also giving the other candidates an opportunity to showcase their own views.” — Aug. 9, 2015, Boston Globe

What will his actual time in office bring?  And what will happen to this country if a counter movement is not sustained?  

Counter-Movement:  This is why Dec. 19th and days following matter. If you can’t make it to your state capitol, call in.
