Are you still reading the links from Monday (posted Sunday to give you extra time)?
Here’s one more: “Rust Belt Dems broke for Trump because they thought Clinton cared more about bathrooms than jobs.”
It has the ring of truth — though if you read to the end, you’ll see we really did try.
We just needed to do it better.
We got a couple million more votes than he did — always important to remember.
And so many stayed home it was barely a quarter of the voting-age population who put him in power.
But in power he is.
So those of us among the 75% who didn’t vote for him . . . or among the 25% who did, but with trepidation . . . need to stay engaged to help get America through this, applauding anything good Trump might do and passionately resisting the rest.
A huge voter turn-out in 2018 to sweep Congress and state legislatures blue may be unlikely but is absolutely possible — it’s legal to vote in mid-term elections! — and what, I would argue, we all need to work for.
I promise something lighter tomorrow.

We are not going to be able to operate our spaceship earth successfully, nor for much longer, unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody.~Buckminster Fuller
