1. We have all participated in the most phenomenal and comprehensive election in American history on the local, state and federal level.

2. The election occurred in the midst of a pandemic, had the greatest voter participation in history and delivered concise results in a timely and coherent fashion.

3. The election was fair and decisive. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are our new leaders and deserve our congratulations and support as citizens.

4. Every governmental entity that looked into allegations of voter fraud and/or miscount of ballots and election mismanagement has found none.

5. Every State and Federal court (including the United States Supreme Court) has found no evidence of voter fraud or any other election misconduct.

6. The thousands of election staff and volunteers throughout the country who oversaw the election, counted the ballots and secured the results deserve our eternal gratitude for preserving American democracy.

7. The machinations of the defeated and discredited President and his minions need to be called out for what they are attempting- a coup of the democratically elected government of the United States of America and its citizens.

8. A special thank you for our independent judiciary which has, once again, protected and preserved our democracy and way of life and protection of the rule of law vs. the rule of the mob.
