All of this "Anti-Trump protesting" is an assault on our Democratic process. It's Un-American. Our nation's ability to hold open elections, with a peaceful transition of power, is the key element that separates us, from third world countries.
Do we really want to become a nation, where the outcome of our Presidential elections are not honored by all Americans? Do we really want to become a nation, where our official election results (every 4 years) will spawn discord, violence, vandalism... and maybe even assassination?
I’ve voted my entire life. In that span of time, only TWICE did my chosen candidate win. In short, I’ve been very disappointed following almost all elections. BUT nonetheless, when my candidate lost, I didn’t kick and scream, burn the flag, stop traffic, harass the incoming President, skip my college classes, move to Canada, or anything else. I’m an American. I did the right thing. I conceded the loss graciously, and I got behind the newly elected President. That’s what Americans do… and that’s what makes our nation great.
Instead of condoning this “protesting” behavior… parents, college professors, and celebrities, should use this situation as an opportunity to teach the next generation. Teach these kids, what it means to be an American. Teach these kids, that our election process is sacred, and the results are final. Teach these kids, how to behave, when faced with defeat and disappointment.
