Dear Fellow Tildenites,
Democracy can be messy and not always have the outcome you wish or expect; but remember the alternative is worse.
Elections regardless of whether our candidate won or lost is a referendum of our OWN freedom. Our freedom to choose. And conversely someone who disagrees with us and their freedom to choose. Take heart that the free elective process we cherish in America and unfortunately millions around the world do not have is itself our victory no matter the outcome.
As Democrats we must wipe ourselves off from a bruising election and move boldly forward undeterred. And as Americans we must unite together as a nation.
In Secretary Clintons own gracious words:
“Our campaign was never about one person or even one election. It was about the country we love and about building an America that’s hopeful, inclusive and big hearted.”
So in that spirit we must unite as Americans…All Americans of all political parties and continue the vital mission of our great nation.
And as Democrats more than ever we must stay active, we must come to meetings and encourage friends, co-workers and family to join Tilden in the democratic process. We must work on the local and national level pushing the ideas and values of our party in advancing the American cause.
