Right, the election didn’t go your way, my way, the way of the popular vote, the way the world hoped it would, the way the media predicted… fine, we didn’t get our way. Don’t give up the fight for what you believe in, protest policies and argue politics… but behave like a responsible person. If the shoe were on the other foot, how would you want Trump, Stein, Sanders, or Johnson supporters to protest? With signs showing their displeasure, with chants of what they want, with respect for our democracy and for our laws? Or would you want them bashing in windows with baseball bats? Really, how does that help one single person? How does that lend credence to your cause? I realize that you feel angry and helpless but this is not the way. It is time to look back at one of our greatest reformers and follow that lead… meet hatred with love, meet violence with peace, send your message with words and conviction, work for change… More than half of Americans who voted are unhappy with the outcome of this election but our country needs to do things that open up communication not shut it down… and violent, destructive protests are a sure way of letting your message get lost in the fray. Be clear what you want your message to be… don’t let it just be “I’m a sore loser”… that won’t change anything but people’s respect for you.
