It has long been my position that the more productive course of action after the 2016 elections would have been election reform instead of blaming the Russians (and pretty much everything and everyone other than the Democratic Party).
The Democrats did protest the 2016 Election. Maybe not as violently as current events, but they still protested.
Let's not forget that the Democrats have been doing everything in their power to harass Trump.
US elections are not free and fair and held on a secret ballot. The two parties have a lock on the process which needs to be broken.
The problem is that the Duopoly will lose its power if real election reforms are enacted. Toss in that there would be a shift in power from the wealthy to the people.
