2020 Elections Provide Insights for What's Next


In October before the 2020 election I posted this video on FB with my predictions, which happened to be right.


Trump would lose and that if people started trying to change the rules and adjust the laws. Our legal system was headed for trouble. In addition, women would have a key role to play in our future.


As you know, a lot has happened since the 2020 elections. A lot is riding on what happens tomorrow.


What next?


Well before I share my thoughts, let me say that looking back gives all of us a chance to assess our own role in history. In fact, without reflecting back, future decisions are impaired and problems are compounded.


Many people resist looking back, which is unfortunate, because understanding past reactions and decisions is a huge resource for the future.


Did you vote in 2020?


PLEASE VOTE now. (If you haven’t already.) Each of us has a responsibility to uphold the principles that serve all of us. The beauty of our imperfect country is that we can live our own personal values under the law, even when we are different.


The legal system is imperfect, but it provides a conceptual framework to hold people accountable and a process to solve problems. We can choose to build on what works and improve what is broken.


I believe the majority of people in our country want to work on problems through a healthy discourse that seeks solutions that are workable for all of us. I believe the results will show people understand what is at stake for our collective future.


The majority takes a collective step forward. The stress and frustration fueled by emotional propaganda antics will continue to stir up confusion following the election. Expect disruptions, delays, and stories. These set the stage for our next challenges that involves adjusting agreements around communication platforms and more.


Finding solutions may be an uncomfortable process. Under our law, it does not have to be destructive, though courage is required.


Look back at events that followed the 2020 election.


What are you ok with? What are you not ok? What impacts all of us?


Does a decision harm other people or put them in danger?


Who would knowingly condone agreements that hurt others?


Has it happened before? Yes.


Can we do better now? Yes.


Finding solutions may be an uncomfortable process. Under our law, it does not have to be destructive, though courage is required.
