In a democracy the results of decisions arrived at democratically are supposed to be honored. Protesting the government may give you some temporary satisfaction but really, no one cares and you aren't going to change anything. The election will not be overturned for protesters. If you really want the election overturned, that's a civil war. Almost every monarchy has had a civil war to establish the right to succession. There is no reason why democratic governments can't have the same results.

"The will of the people" has to be the most bullshit concepts the collectivists have come up with yet.

'The people' as a social construct, refers to a collective of individuals. Not a majority of individuals. The will of the people can suck my cock.

What is more DEMOCRATIC? To protest your government ... or accept the Democratic vote of the people?


Honoring the results is what is right. Refusing to accept the outcome and riot in the streets is anarchy.

You, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Ceausescu, Schicklegrüber, and Uncle Joe must have been in blowjob heaven.

It actually is documented proof of their real feelings with regard to free and open elections. They're all for them as long as they win.....

Remind you of any particular mindset found throughout history?

Can't deny that!

Where do I begin? Do you want the list in alphabetical order or chronological?

These protests are just the wingers' way of licking their wounds. As long as they're not causing violence or riots then let them bitch out their sorrows. They'll eventually come to find that Trump isn't as bad of a guy as the media has made him out to be... if they allow themselves to anyway.
