Protesters of Trump’s election need a lesson in American history

It was disheartening — but not totally unexpected — to see the post-election protests and rioting. Of course, peaceful protests are a right in these United States, but as soon as property is damaged or people are injured, they become riots and are unlawful. It is interesting that these actions are undertaken by the very people who consider themselves to be the liberal arm of our country.

In rush for recount, should we examine role of third parties?

A third party to the presidential election is leading the charge for a recount, but is anyone asking whether or not the third parties may have cost Hillary Clinton the election? In six of the 13 swings states that Donald Trump won, the third party candidates collectively received more votes than the margin by which Trump won. And had the third parties not run, Clinton would likely have received more of their votes than would have Trump based on their policy differences.
