America lost the election
A few months ago I mentioned that the important aspect of an election is not who wins, but that the losing side accepts the result. It appears increasingly clear that America just lost its presidential election. Not because who won, we aren't 100% sure of that yet; but because we *can* be 100% sure that a large portion of the voters of the losing side will consider the result to be fraudulent, the election "stolen", regardless of who the losing side is. It is near certain that America will see protests, very likely that there will be some violence involved, and that we might even see an increase in domestic terrorism over the next 4 years. Not exactly a beacon of democracy.
