Republican Break-ins
  
The election was rigged after all, and as it turns out in the favor of Trump, but NOT for the voters!! Most voters DID NOT vote for Trump, only 46.10% did, while 48.19% voted for Hillary, and 5.71% for others, which totals to 53.90% not for Trump. Hillary has won the "Popular Vote" by over 2.86 million votes according to several sources, see below.  Trump's electoral college win is 46th out of 58 in terms of winning the electoral vote—hardly a landslide. If not for Russia, quoting from Candidate Trump's Speech, "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find, the 30 thousand emails that are missing," these deleted emails would become available during the Presidential Campaign at WikiLeaks, and became a big of his campaign against Hillary, and may have been the main reason that she lost the the Electoral College Vote.

This is a bad example of Democracy, after saying "Every VOTE counts," every persons vote should be counted equally!!

Ironically Trump tweeted, "The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy," following Mitt Romney's loss in 2012.

The difference is now "Bigger than either Dallas, or Houston, and now even Chicago" according to CNN, the Cook Political Report, the NYTimes, and the US Election Atlas websites. This Third Largest Popular Vote in US Election History is growing towards Obama's 2012 record of 65,915,716 votes—see the table below.  Donald Trump has the Fourth Largest Popular Vote.

This is a Quote from Nelson Mandela. The whole quote has been copied below.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these great and true principles.
—August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan
 
The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it.

The Narcissist Blames You!

Narcissists are notorious for placing blame on other people and not on themselves. Even when they clearly and definitely did something wrong, they cannot- and will not- accept responsibility. They almost always deflect the blame elsewhere. Narcissists either ignore their contribution to the situation or insist that the other person (spouse, child, co-worker or etc.) made them do it. Narcissists know right from wrong, they just cannot allow something bad to be their fault. It is another manifestation of their supreme self-centeredness as well as a protection for their fragile ego. It is also a primitive method of avoiding external repercussions.

 

One of President Harry S Truman favorite sayings was . . .
If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
Don't take on a job if you are unwilling to face its pressures.

The Constitution of the United States: A transcription - National Archives
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Bill of Rights: A transcription - National Archives
The Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

Preamble to the Bill of Rights

The Constitution might never have been ratified if the framers hadn't promised to add a Bill of Rights. The first ten amendments to the Constitution gave citizens more confidence in the new government and contain many of today's Americans most valued freedoms.

First Amendment
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


Second Amendment
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Third Amendment
No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Fourth Amendment
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Fifth Amendment
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Sixth Amendment
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Seventh Amendment
