The swathes of celebrities who threatened to leave the US if Donald Trump won the Presidency have yet to pack their bags, and most are likely not to. Does that make them liars? Or was it just empty threats designed to make people vote for Hillary (good luck with that).
But perhaps the US might be better off without them. The very principle of Democracy is that people are given a vote which they cast in favor of someone they believe will represent their ideals. If you’re going to leave when you don’t get the result you want, then perhaps you’re not really a good advocate of democracy.
Rosie O’Donnell was one of the celebrities that threatened to leave, and the latest news suggests that she may actually be following through on her promise. We should applaud her commitment to keeping her promise, and encourage others who don’t believe in practicing the democratic process.
True democracy works best when the losers go away and try to either refine their ideas, find a better way to present their ideas, or come up with new ideas that fit their principles. Running distractions, making threats, frustrating the process of government is not the way to win a vote. Be better, and you might just win.
