In 2000 thirty thousand votes errantly cast on the infamous butterfly ballot for Pat Buchanan but clearly intended for Gore, went unchallenged even though Buchanan himself disavowed the votes. Without those votes, Gore still had Florida but the U.S. Supreme court stepped in and took the office away from a perfectly fine candidate who had won both the popular vote and the electoral college vote and handed it to Bush, resulting in the Middle East horrors that have ensued ever since.
Here's what needs to happen now. The Electoral College does the job for which it is intended (correcting elections that go egregiously wrong) and extracts the winner who is a man barely fit for society let alone the presidency and gives the election to Hillary Clinton who. by the way, won the popular vote.
As they say, turnabout is fair play. And we walk out of this cloud back into the light of day. As for protest, why would anybody who claims the government is letting him down be sorry to see a giant fascist turd deprived of the chance to far more deeply let him down?
