To Preserve Our Democracy:

Call on President Obama to acknowledge that the 2016 election was rigged, declare Marshall Law, suspend the inauguration of Donald Trump and hold a new election for President and Congress in 2018, for the following reasons:

  1. The 2016 national elections were rigged as Donald Trump accurately stated. The Republican orchestrated Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck denied over 7,000,000 voters, mostly black and Hispanic registered voters from having their votes counted as discovered and reported by Greg Palast.

  2. The interference in our nation's elections by the Russian government was acknowledged by our nations top intelligence agencies.

  3. The inappropriate disclosure of misleading accusations by the FBI Director.

  4. The failure of over 50 elected officials of the Electoral College members who voted for Donald Trump to comply with applicable laws because they did not live in the congressional districts they represented or they held elective office in states legally barring dual officeholders.

  5. Donald Trump claims that climate change is a hoax and has selected crucial members of his cabinet who hold similar opinions threatening the security of our nation's future as warned by the Pentagon and confirmed by the leaders of every other nation.

During the next two years investigate and prosecute all those involved in voter suppression activities such as crosschecking. Require demonstrated compliance of applicable laws by the members of the Electoral College before they are seated.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
