What is the endgame?

For those of you out there angry, protesting and rioting because the person you wanted did not win the election I have a couple of questions:

Did you vote? If not, further editorializing from me is unnecessary.

What do you want? I'm all for protest. But there has to be a solution. Marching in the streets because you don't like something is not protest, it is a tantrum. There is no indication the election was fraudulent. Trump was elected. If your endgame to overthrow a duly elected government, that is the best example of the very tyranny you are protesting against. Is your riot the ultimate blackmail -- elect my guy or gal or I will break your stuff?

Go home. Hug a loved one. Go back to work. If you don't have a job, maybe you should look hard at the folks who have been in charge and wonder why you are out rioting because you could not get more of the same.

Apparently 42% of the "eligible" electorate did not vote in this election.

Cut that by my off-the-cuff estimate of 10% of illegals and other fraudulent votes, and under half of those actually eligible voted. In what may shape up as one of the most consequential elections in our nation's history.

We need either better candidates or a better electorate.

Both are needed and desired. Sadly, the use of social media as the source for information for many people, ( "I saw four posts on it so it must be true"), is making people at both ends of the electoral spectrum misinformed at best, and hateful and myopic at worst. I don't have a problem with protesting, but maybe there should be a test before you're allowed to join the crowd and if you pick up a rock, or anything else, your protest card is revoked.

I am amazed by all this do away with the electoral college from a group of idiots that have no idea how to change the constitution. I have a real hard time believing 38 states would vote to make themselves worthless in an election.

Typical liberals. They knew the rules going in, now they want to change the rules ex post facto.

Just like a bunch of screaming little kids who threaten to hold their breath till they get their way. It's pathetic.
