Your words, not Russians, lost vote

-A A +A

The Russians were the ones who lost the election for the Democrats?

No, WikiLeaks hacked emails and made them public, then the voters decided on their own.

The Hill wrote, “Did (WikiLeaks) change the outcome of the election? Who knows, it’s impossible to tell,” Assange said.

“But if it did, the accusation is that the true statements of Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager, John Podesta, and the DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz, their true statements is what changed the election.”

“The Russians Rigged The Election” is just the latest in a long list of blame-game scenarios this administration and it’s party elite have made. “It’s Bush’s fault” and “It’s a vast right-wing conspiracy” are a few more examples of other deflections that have become too commonplace with the Democratic Party over the past eight years, and what I see as a big factor as to why they lost so many seats in this recent election.

We The People are not looking for perfection, but we are looking for integrity.

They wrote their truths. The public found out. 

They were embarrassed and went into panic mode. Pointing fingers at Putin for Trump’s win, when it was their own thoughts that caused voter distrust, their own writings that scorched their persona.

It happens, own it. Take responsibility for your actions. Be accountable. We have all had to own our words at one time or another. It is a discipline that is learned at a very early age. It was my fault when I left my diary out on the stairs in fourth grade. I wrote it all, I left it laying around and others read it! My fault. It was my fault when I wrote a note to my best friend in school, but inadvertently dropped it in the hall allowing others to read it. My fault.

It was my fault, when I was in seventh grade, on the house telephone with my childhood friend ragging on my parents and talking about things we had done that they didn’t know about ... only to hang up, go to walk down the stairs and find my Mother standing there with her hand on her hip, and nostrils flaring.

At that moment I knew she had been listening the entire time on the other phone line, and I didn’t know how bad the punishment would be, but I knew it was going to hurt and involve soap in my mouth and definite grounding. My fault.

Wikileaks was the party in the wrong for stealing and then disseminating those stolen emails, but the administration and their party was in the wrong for not taking responsibility for the emails they wrote.

But, somehow the Russians were the ones who lost the election for the Democrats?
