In Democracy, You Sometimes Lose

Winner takes all...

Didn't we all grow up hearing that little truism? That's democracy in its purest sense. One wins, and the other loses, and the winner gets all the chips.

I'm very worried about the state of American society now that thousands of Clinton supporters have taken to the streets in a truly fascist display of antidemocratic rioting.

In reaction to these dangerous riots, yes, dangerous to American democracy, Hillary Clinton must get out in public and request demand that everyone return home and accept the fact that they lost the election. That is exactly what they would have demanded from Trump supporters if the shoe had been on the other foot.
