    And THAT, indeed, was a stolen election. I was shocked and angry. Many of us were, but we didn't turn into thugs, nor was it encouraged by Mr. Gore. That was true statesmanship and ADULT behavior.

    Its really scary that people actually believe the narrative of a rigged election. Especially when the only evidence of any wrongdoing during the election was against trump supporters trying to stuff the box. Please; for yourselves, families, friends, and the rest of our country; open your eyes. Stop being so willfully ignorant and manipulated when confronted with the fact that you were and are wrong. Its ok to be wrong and make mistakes. Its how we learn. But if you refuse to accept facts and rather instead spin a narrative that protects your ego, refusing to learn from your mistakes, you doom us all. Please. Stop the hate and bigotry and willful stupidity. You're all better than this. 4 years of playing pretend with the future of our nation at stake is enough. I understand the frustration. I understand you feel targeted and somehow disenfranchised, but its just a self preservation tactic. A defense mechanism of the ego. And it is damaging, both to yourself and those around you. I'm tired of all the fighting. We finally have a chance after so long to put things back to rights and people want to come up with fairy tale excuses like children so they don't have to do the hard work of healing this nation. You can't sweep this under the rug of your spin stories. Please stop trying.

    Under a Biden Presidency, there will be no unity. EVER. There wasn't any under Trump, and we shouldn't expect 75 million of conservative voters to unite under Biden.
