    Another Soros-sponsored protest at least one week too late.

    The virus that kills democracy is extremism because extremism disables those codes. Republicans have disrespected the process for decades. They have regarded any Democratic president as illegitimate. They have proudly boasted of preventing popularly elected Democrats from effecting policy and have asserted that only Republicans have the right to determine the nation’s course. They have worked tirelessly to make sure that the government cannot govern and to redefine the purpose of government as prevention rather than effectuation. In short, they haven’t believed in democracy for a long time, and the media never called them out on it.

    Many things are non-intuitive. The election, IMO, was not rationally thought out by the voters, but I accept the results and will have to rearrange some of my future plans to compensate for the disruptions as they occur.

    A storm usually results in a new course being taken in it’s aftemath. We desperately need unity and reconciliation to repair and grow America’s economy in a safe environment that allows the hard workers to prosper proportionately to their effort. An experiment must actually be performed before you can announce the results … we’re going to have to wait and see.

    Matt, are you implying that they are protesting those words, or that they just don’t believe he means them.

    Odd that Republicans and Democrats think reconciliation is a dirty word.

    .

    From Article 68:

    .“ …

    The process of election affords a moral certainty, that the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications. Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity, may alone suffice to elevate a man to the first honors in a single State; but it will require other talents, and a different kind of merit, to establish him in the esteem and confidence of the whole Union, or of so considerable a portion of it as would be necessary to make him a successful candidate for the distinguished office of President of the United States. It will not be too strong to say, that there will be a constant probability of seeing the station filled by characters pre-eminent for ability and virtue. And this will be thought no inconsiderable recommendation of the Constitution, by those who are able to estimate the share which the executive in every government must necessarily have in its good or ill administration. Though we cannot acquiesce in the political heresy of the poet who says: "For forms of government let fools contest That which is best administered is best,’’ yet we may safely pronounce, that the true test of a good government is its aptitude and tendency to produce a good administration.

    Actually, it is longer than sixteen years. They lost it by 93, and they never got it back.

    narrowminded

    Those not permitted to study governmental forms will chant the nonsense they are told. Democracy is literally “the rule of the people” – all the people, with unailenable rights for both majority and minority. What you are confusing it with (because that is what you are ordered to say) is polyarchy, the rule of the many, or as the founders called it, “the mob”.

    Hey, the Dems did this to themselves by trying to push through a lying criminal & make her the “First Woman Prez” just to appear to be PC.

    How’s that workin’ out for ’em now? You piss-off enough old white guys (sorta like the ones who finally got fed up with English rule and founded this country in the first place) and this is what you get.

    Trump got elected fair and square – live with it.

    Matt got it wrong, not one of the protests have I seen an American flag. There have been LGBT, Mexican, one from Peru and several from Ecuador.
