Message Obama Sent Me About Trump Election

Here's what Obama's Organizing for Action is sending out post-election:
If you're anything like me, you're still sorting through the events of the past week and a half. It's hard -- there's no way to sugarcoat that. Vulnerable communities are feeling like this country has turned its back on them. And years of hard work are on the chopping block, seemingly overnight.
Maybe you're feeling disillusioned, cynical, or frustrated. But now is not the time to walk away -- now is the time to get in the ring and fight harder than we ever have before.  
Everyone knows what's at stake.
If you've been an active part of this movement, we need you to double down. If you're just joining us or want a constructive way to start organizing in your community, now is the time to roll up your sleeves and get involved. Don't ever think that you can't make a difference.  
We need you.
Your voice, your compassion, and your actions have never been more important than they are today, right now. OFA leaders, volunteers, trainers, supporters, and staff are here, and we're not going anywhere.  
Progress is never easy. But we've never been here for the easy fights.  
Let's get to work.
First of all, they really think they've done good work. . . and they have been very successful, if you look at it from a communist's point of view.  But, read carefully.  It's a "fight" to them.  They are in a political war.  Do we truly understand that?  Do we understand that the Democrats are now a wounded animal willing to strike and lash out at us in a very dangerous way?

The Founding Fathers, according to the final sentence of the Declaration of the Independence, felt this way about liberty:

"...with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

The Patriots during the Founding knew we would be faced with tyranny seeking to destroy the American System. . . and they expected us to do something about it!

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." -- Samuel Adams
