I just signed a petition to prevent Donald Trump from becoming the President of the United States. I urge everyone else to do so, as well.
Here’s a link to the petition: https://www.change.org/p/electoral-college-electors-electoral-college-make-hillary-clinton-president-on-december-19?recruiter=636655820&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink
And here’s a copy of my comment I added to my signature:
I am signing because Donald Trump is a threat to me, my family, my friends, my country, and my world. I cannot idly sit back and allow him to become the most powerful man on earth, and I might be willing to do anything to prevent that from happening. I might not even care if it is undemocratic to do so; there is something more fundamentally important than democracy at stake here; something that the whole purpose of democracy is to SERVE. That thing is our very fundamental human rights. Rights that Donald Trump has declared open war on; not just for minorities, but for EVERYONE. Even if you don’t care about others’ (or your own) rights, consider this: human-caused climate change is real, weather you like it or not. It is a very real threat to civilization and humanity, and this man has fervently denied it. Our world might very well END because of this man, and I think that ANYTHING is worth doing to prevent that. At the very least, I can sign this petition and resist Trump’s claim to any sort of power as a start; I hope that it won’t escalate further, but I’m not unprepared to stop him by any means necessary.
