There were protests and demonstrations across the country last night, with a group calling themselves the “Snowflakes” ringleaders of the operation. They seem to be upset about Donald Trump being the new leader of our country, but exactly WHAT they were protesting was a bit of a mystery to me.
A lot of them cited the fact that Hillary Clinton got more actual votes than Donald Trump as their reason to protest, with Hillary holding a 200,000 vote plus lead as of this writing. Shouldn’t they (or maybe their parents) thought of that back in 2000, when Al Gore won the popular vote, but George W. Bush got more electoral votes?
Both parties agreed to the long standing constitutional rules of the Electoral College deciding the election. I’ve personally been a believer that the EC should be radically altered (maybe proportional disbursement of the votes as opposed to a winner take-all format) or abolished. But you can’t change the rules right after the “game” has been played. Life doesn’t work that way.
There are some logical reasons why people are upset Trump won, but this wasn’t one of them.
