This’ll be brief, so if you’re sick of election postmortems, bear with me.
I publicly declared last June my refusal to support either of the major presidential candidates. I saw (and see) no reason to recant. But here we are. Donald Trump is president-elect, and he is my president, whether I like it or not.
So was Barack Obama. You know what happens when I say he’s not my president? I reject my own right as an American citizen to call out him and his Administration for actions and policies. The president, any president, owes me accountability. I will not reject that.
The president-elect has said at least one encouraging thing. From his President-Elect web page (greatagain.gov; never let it be said the man forgets brand identity) on healthcare: “Protect individual conscience in healthcare; Protect innocent human life from conception to natural death, including the most defenseless and those Americans with disabilities.”
His opponent wouldn’t be saying any such thing.
Now we have a benchmark, one that the president-elect has set up himself, against which we may measure his actions.
The March for Life on January 27 is now of heightened importance. It will be the first major public gathering letting then-President Trump know that we’re watching. Copy that message to our upcoming pro-abortion congressional delegation.
