  • In the end, the result is what mattered

    We had a lively and heated election, thoroughly enjoyable for all.

    But we need to reflect for a moment on the outcome: once again, a superpower peacefully transferred power.

    Regardless of whether your candidate won or lost, whether you see Bobo leaving as a triumph or a tragedy, the most important thing is that the system worked.

    It is not perfect by any means, but throughout our history we have seen 45 peaceful transitions of one ruling group to another performed without bloodshed.

    That is the message for today: the system worked.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

    Criminals are rioting in the streets of Washington, D.C. That's hardly a "peaceful" transformation. On a national/international level it's humiliating, embarrassing and shameful, and this is only the first day.

    I never before realized how lawless and savage the Democrats of America truly are.

      I think the Lincoln/Johnson, Garfield/Hayes, McKinley/Cleveland, Kennedy/Johnson transitions were a bit bloody, but I get your point. This is something everyone should be proud of.

          I think you have that wrong. The people that are whining and melting down are people like you, Hillary supporters that still have not accepted the truth.

            You only have to take a look outside western democracy to see what a precious thing that is. The transfer of power in the rest of the world is a highly combustible event, fraught with danger of open conflict. Right now the President of Gambia has been voted out and is refusing to leave.

            It is on days like this that people should rightly reflect on the state of evolution they have attained in their society, such that democracy is respected and power peacefully transferred.

            When Putin eventually leaves and is replaced, the Russian system will be seriously put to the test.

              I don't see any Trump supporters melting down. What I see is a small minority of Mind Numb Hillary worshipers and Soro's paid rent a mob getting way more ALPHABET Lame Stream Media attention then they deserve. (Latest from Drudge.)

                        Actually I too was very surprised at how hateful and idiotic some of the Democrats are acting. Even though I hope its just a small fringe........its more widespread than I imagined.

                          Indeed. That some cannot move on reminds me of us here in the Philippines. Right now there are still rumors (can't assess how true) of the other party still plotting to destabilize our government so their partymate VP can step in.

                            True confession: I saw the title and thought there was no way I'd be agreeing with you. And yet, I agree with you! I had taken that part for granted this weekend, but its definitely something to be thankful for.
