Election is over but diligence still important

The General Election of 2016 is over except for the Electoral College vote. If you did not vote, you have no right to complain.
 If you did vote, your civic duty is not completed. You must be vigilant, keep yourself informed, “hold their feet to the fire,” write, phone and e-mail our elected officials. Do not let them forget the people are the bosses and don’t discount your influence.
 In my opinion, we don’t need term limits. They are the easy way out. We need voters who are informed who will use the ballot box to remove any elected official who does not represent them.
Out-of-state money, so-called “dark money,” can only buy our votes if we let it. Smear campaigns only work if we let them. Hatred and discrimination of our fellow Americans happens only if we let it. We are better Americans than that.
