I can't defend childish displays like that and I'm sure no veteran who ever gave their life, thought they were giving their life to defend the right to riot, loot and engage in the violent garbage we are seeing now. Or, the right to try and negate an elections results.
I of course see what you are saying and I'd never suggest stopping that from happening, but as far as the decidedly illegal, violent, phony protests going on........
I can only speak to how I see it.

Again let me burst the bubble, in our history the electoral votes always had gone to presidential elect.
Plain and simple, Trump will be the president, for the next 4 years.
for those that wish for a start or let say a somebody that the people could not even elect like Hilary, is not going to happen.
It would be unthinkable for it to happen.
But, think about it, the Electoral College vote has never superseded a half a million popular vote win either.
I think we are in for some serious trouble.
the electoral college was instituted to court slave states...to prevent popular uprisings ...yes slave states are who we have to thank for the electoral college

You are contradicting yourself. If that is what you want, why are you promoting attempts to circumvent the will of the people, as recently declared in the electoral process established by law?
The electoral college is not the will of the people the popular vote is the will of the people.

By the latest count, Hillary won the popular vote by 574,064 votes.
Over half a million... The people have spoken. Hillary deserves the win.
No matter what, Trump's reign of hate deserves unrelenting fierce opposition.
