In this Summer’s past Wired magazine was this article, “An Open Letter From Tech Leaders on Donald Trump’s Presidential Bid.” I agree with everything written in it. It’s now time to love Trump out of office as expediently as possible.

Fear is pandemic in American culture. Unless you, as an individual, take steps to manage and dissolve it, it will and does run your life. I speak from personal and professional experience. Fear is sold to us each and every minute of each and every broadcast news day. So much so that most of our 300,000,000 citizens stopped noticing it. Most of our fears are unreal fantasies. They don’t exist. But they can and do still color and run our lives in absolutely undesirable directions. But no thing is real until it actually becomes real.

It’s also real, if you simply look into it objectively, that every national election since at least Dubya’s day has been rigged. Do your own conclusive research about this. Make your own choices and take back your personal power. Personally, I have found time and again there was clear evidence the popular national vote was blatantly disregarded by the government’s election process, and/or there was clear evidence that the gerrymandered electoral college skewed elections’ results beyond truth and comprehension.

Now, newly president-elect Donald Trump is our nation’s over-reaction to our individual, sometimes unspoken fears. However, his attitudes and fears are quite real because we have given them form by letting him be elected. But anyone, whoever they might be, who is abusive, divisive, and sociopathic cannot represent me as president. I won’t accept that from a clearly broken, subverted electoral process which long ago ceased to truthfully represent the will of its popular voters.

Trump’s sentiments are, in every way, the opposite of what our nation’s founders wrote they believed. I instead choose Love and freedom. Don’t however, mistake those choices for weakness. I’ve often been known to fight and win in professional scenarios. In this moment, I’d sooner see California secede from the broken United States’ government, to become its own republic.

With this post, I cast my personal preference that Trump be removed from taking office. I base that estimation not in fear, but from the real reactions of the experienced, compassionate, sensible, real people who daily comment on his inexperience and abuse of power. No. I won’t stand for his decisions.
