Webster's dictionary defines democracy as:
A government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections.
It takes courage and dedication for a person and his family to run for public office, and especially to run for office of President of these United States. A person has to believe so strongly in the greater good of this country just to survive the process, I think. Without the people, regardless of political party, who run for public office, without the people, regardless of political party, who show up and exercise their right to vote, we don't have a democracy. It takes all of us. We, the People. I love this country, and I love what we stand for. We are strong because we care so deeply, and because we stand up for each other, and our right to agree or to disagree. Thank you to everyone, regardless of party, for showing up, for working so hard, and for voting.
We all won.
America, the beautiful.
