This whole year, we've been trying to pretend that this god-awful presidential election wasn't happening. But have we done anything to actually stop it? No.

Thankfully, Louise K. Nolley, a 62-year-old resident of Buffalo, New York, has crafted a legal plan to save us all. This week, in federal court, she filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on behalf of all Americans, seeking the indefinite postponement of the election until better candidates are selected.

"Neither of the candidates running for the Presidential seat shows that they can handle the position," states the 6-page filing with the U.S. District Court, according the Buffalo News. "There shouldn’t be a reasonable doubt that Hillary can be trusted with confidential information," it notes, and where Trump is concerned, “being rich or having more than others does not make you a candidate for Presidency.” Instead, Nolley argues, we need someone "serious, qualified, trustworthy" to lead the nation for the next four years.

Nolley is nothing if not serious herself. A recovering heroin addict with a long rap sheet and a history in prison—where she acquired the paralegal skill set behind her lawsuit—this is the first time she's eligible to vote for a president in her adult life. “I’ve been writing on it and thinking about it and praying. I was just waiting for an OK from God,” she said of her injunction to delay the election, which would be a first in America's 227-year history of transferring executive power.

Barring that unprecedented decision, however, Nolley has vowed to abstain from voting for Clinton or Trump and will instead look to make a difference in down-ballot races. That's just the sort of patriot and devoted citizen she is.
