As was expected, those who supported the loser in the 2016 United States presidential election have taken to the streets.

And, in an interesting way, these actions by the whiners may not be as negatively damaging to the political/social state as they may have seemed previous to the election.
Perhaps an all-out conflict in the streets is exactly what the country needed in order to establish a new regime.
For decades the people of the United States have passively sat by while the most mediocre pretended to argue their cause in the halls of congress – all the while knowing that those were empty arguments simply used as theater to give the impression that their positions were not already bought and paid for by their real masters.
With the new development of outward protest by the liberal mob, the issues can now actually be in the hands of the people – forcing the authorities of the state to consciously take a side. Do the so-called ‘leaders’ of the state stand by the rule of law, or do they choose to passively stand by and allow a disruption of the life of the community in the name of ‘democracy’?
This is an acutely profound moment – the United States was founded not as a ‘democracy’ but as a republic. The design of government wasn’t intended to be the rule of the mob – with the rise of the protests we find ourselves facing the possibility of a realized assertion of a return to the founding principles of that government.
A republican form of government is defined as ‘
On 8 November 2016 the citizens of the United States cast their votes. If we are to assume that the results are valid, Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States, and the Republican party has been elected as the majority party in both houses of Congress. The people have spoken.
If those in the minority choose to challenge the decision of the people in an open rebellion, it is the duty of the elected representatives to exercise the will of the people by enforcing that will. If they do not, they no longer legitimately represent that will – they are traitors to the Republic.
In that instance, it is the right of the people to defend their will. The ‘representatives’ who betray the will of the people are subject to removal from office. But more importantly, the people whose legitimate right to power, vis a vis their vote, have a duty to assert that right. In effect, if the government refuses to assert the will of the people we find ourselves in a situation where there exists a state where it is no longer the mediocre bought off politicians who will determine the course of government, but the citizenry itself.
If the intent of the liberal elements who have taken to the streets is to declare war against the will of the people, war is what they should get. This war, instigated by the worst in our midst, can be settled by the best in our midst. Those who are organizing the ignorant crazies and leading this rebellion are the same elements who have declared war against decency for over a century already.
Perhaps the time has come for the good people of the country to rise up and say, ‘No More!’
