I Won't Get Over It But Maybe YOU Should!

I am tired of being told to suck it up and get over it. First of all, this is not about politics, it is about morals - something the other side seems to be woefully short on.

I think you should draw back and you should get over it. Mighty touchy, aren't we? You cannot accept that a woman, Clinton no less, could get more votes than your orange Russian demagogue.

Me thinks though doth protest, and put us down, too much. Maybe it is because you know deep in your dark puss filled feckless heart that you really are not legitimate. You did not get more votes than us. Maybe you picked up that insecurity from your illegitimate leader. We know you are overcompensating because you know who the legitimate winner was. That is why you feel you must continue to try and shut us up.

But you know what? Now it is time for you to get over it and suck it up. We have more numbers than you and this, after all, is a democracy. No matter who won, we are supposed to be represented by the numbers. Haven't I heard you shouting about the silent majority for years? Well you can clearly see by the vote tallies, we are the majority who are voted and WE are the ones who need to have our voices heard.

We are the majority and we will not be silenced by the minority. By the way, get used to being referred to as the minority. You say the official electoral college says you won and that is all that counts. No, the other numbers say we were the majority of voters. We GOTV and we won the numbers. From now on you will be labeled the minority.

You will be told that you need to shut up because we want affordable health care for all and we are the majority and our voice will be heard.

You will be told that registering Muslims is unconstitutional and to suck it up because we are the majority and our voice will be heard.

You will be told that Planned Parenthood, according to law, has never spent federal funds on abortions and that women need access to the services they offer. Get over it, we are the majority and our voice will be heard.

You will be told that clean air and water matter to the majority of us. We are the majority and you will hear us.

You will be told that it is not okay to grab a woman by the pussy. We will be heard because we are the majority so listen to us.

We will declare that it is not ok to make fun of disabled people. We are the majority and we will shout this loudly.

We demand that taxes should be shown to investigate any conflicts of interests and possible collaboration with enemy entities. We are the majority, hear us roar and suck it up!

We will speak out in defense of a media that did nothing but normalize a monster of a human being. We will scream about the forth estate and how important it is to our government and how we will not be silenced in trying to get that part of our government back. We are the majority and we have more of a voice than you do.

We will speak out against a useless wall to keep out people who are currently at a negative rate of coming over the border. We will speak out against his lies that Mexico will pay for it when he turned around and now has stated that we will pay and they will later. When we say it is bull and it is more bills we are saddled with, our voices will ring loud and clear because we are the majority.

Make no mistake, we know our power. We have the numbers and refuse to give up our democracy without a hard fought battle. We are the majority and we are not silent. You are the minority and we will fight for you to have better lives but how dare you tell us to suck it up? Can't handle a few protests and the light shining on your president? I will not shed any tears at night because protests and dissent are what make a democracy stronger. It makes us better.

We are the majority. You suck it up and get over it because we will be heard.

2. I'll get over it just as soon as they stop pushing their far-right agenda

and authoritarian bullshit under the false pretense that they have a mandate.

I'll get over it just as soon as they stop gerrymandering and allow Congress to represent the true will of the people.

I'll get over it when they change the Electoral College to make sure no President ever gets elected who isn't the popular vote winner.

I'll forget it when the civil rights and free speech of every American is protected.

Until then, forget it. This isn't over by a long shot.

3. Like I told all of my former Facebook friends who told me to "give him a chance":

"I'll give that Orange Horror as much of as chance as you gave to President Obama" before I clicked the unfriend button. Life is too goddamned short.

5. You know, they're the ones that need to suck it up and shut up already

Whiniest bunch of winners I have ever seen. I got one "friend" on FB who, for the past week as slob's swearing in got closer, posting outrage that some people don't care if he gets death threats (how horrible is a person to not care that their president elect is getting death threats ) Today she posted some old picture of Trump with a medal around his neck in a group including Mohamed Ali for some great inner city project or works wondering why that filthy liberal media isn't reminding the public of that :whaaa:

They need to shut and be happy and supportive of "their" president and leave us alone. I will show Trump the same amount of respect he showed President Obama.

6. Yes, exactly what I was saying.

You would swear they won by almost three million votes and not us. They need to shut up and be the quiet little minority that they are.
