Choose Democracy

I have just joined an organization I discovered on line. It’s called Choose Democracy. You can find it at https://choosedemocracy.us/ Here is its pledge:

1.         We will vote.

2.         We will refuse to accept election results until all the votes are counted.

3.         We will nonviolently take to the streets if a coup is attempted.

4.         If we need to, we will shut down this country to protect the integrity of the democratic process.

The group is obviously opposing Trump’s threat to ignore the election results and maintain his hold on the White House. That would constitute a coup d’etat. Since the Republicans have not denounced Trump’s expressed intent to ignore the election results, the rest of us have to gear up to remove Trump by force if it comes to that.

I never thought I’d see the day when we Americans would be calling for the forced removal of a defeated president attempting a coup. So this is what Trump has brought us to.
