Response to 2016 Predidential Election

Monday, November 14th, 2016

Below is the text of a letter I mailed to Donald Trump about his choices at this time.

“That more Americans voted for Hillary Clinton is not disputed and the actual number of votes for her will be even larger as the counting comes to an end.

“In the light of this, a choice you have is to accept the uncontested will of the American voters and concede in her favor.  Such a decision on your part would not only be fair and just, but would help this country revise a very outdated system for election of its President.

” Failure to do so will leave you colored with illegitimacy and could limit your effectiveness in office.

“I urge you in the strongest possible terms to respect the will of the majority of American voters and step down now. ”

I have no illusions about any impact of this letter.  It was just something I could do.  I am very grateful for those people who are out on the streets and at Trump Tower demonstrating.  I will do some of that in due course.  I just felt that doing something was imperative.  It is now time for me to consider what more substantive things I can do to respond to this disastrous situation for my country.
