Letter to the Editor

Well, it’s all over, but the shouting. Some in jubilation, others in accusations; but nevertheless, the people have voted and picked a new president. Like it or not, it is what it is.

President Trump can throw all the temper tantrums he wants, roll on the floor or whatever, but eventually someone on his team will convince him of the inevitable.

He can issue all the legal challenges that he wants, claim all the fraud he can conjure up, but in the end he will have no choice but to concede. It is hard for him and his supporters to admit defeat as they still cling on to a last vestige of hope.

There is not enough fraud that will make any difference to change the election results or any solid evidence of a widespread conspiracy.

Our system of government has been in place since George Washington and it hasn’t failed so far. We should feel confident that it will work again and that we’ll have a smooth transition of power come Jan. 20.

Tranquilino Martinez,

Del Rio, Texas
