Win / Win

main_content_trump_protest_us_cities_widePersonally I don’t see the point in protests or in petitions. We each have one vote and the only REAL power and say we have is that VOTE. One might want to from time to time do those things but in the end the only place it really COUNTS is at the ballot box. I missed the first Federal and Quebec elections I was eligible for but since then I have voted in every one for 30 years.

Regrettably the USA with their electoral college is the same as Canada as a Parliamentary democracy with it’s first past the post system. A party or candidate can win the vote and yet legit another party or candidate wins the election.

Clinton won the vote but note to these protesters that Mr. Trump did get elected by the rules that determine your presidential elections. He will be sworn in as president and you do have 18 months to gear up for the mid-terms and that is where they should be focused and work towards. The only place where it really COUNTS is at the BALLOT BOX!
