Good Day World!
Let's talk about what a mandate is.
Our president-elect obviously doesn't know what it means when he claims he was elected by mandate.
Definition: the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.
For starters, when his opponent Hillary Clinton got 3 million more votes than him...that's not a mandate.
When 50 electors were found to be illegal...that's not a mandate.
Evidence has surfaced for cause to challenge congressional ratification of the Electoral College vote which takes place today.
Yesterday, Alternet's Steven Rosenfeld wrote an article summing up the need to challenge the election results:
“Trump’s ascension to the presidency is completely illegitimate,” said Ryan Clayton of Americans Take Action, who is promoting the effort. “It’s not just Russians hacking our democracy. It’s not just voter suppression at unprecedented levels. It is also [that] there are Republicans illegally casting ballots in the Electoral College, and in a sufficient number that the results of the Electoral College proceedings are illegitimate as well.”
To be clear. Trump is the most disliked president we have ever elected. His rise to power has Americans and the rest of the world worried.
So let's call a Chump, a Chump. Trump does NOT have a mandate... with the exception of getting richer.
Time for me to walk on down the road..
