After the electoral college vote, is it time for those who staunchly oppose a Trump presidency to accept the results or should they fight it by continuing protests and looking for legal loopholes?

Fighting Trump, never stop. Accepting the results, it's long past due.

If you think Trump is a fascist then you obviously don't know what that word means.

Yeah, you've posted that link before. Those characteristics fit into many different ideologies. Obama is pretty much guilty of them all. That's a horrible example of fascism. Read about Mussolini if you want to know what fascism is. Trump is a capitalist.

He's not a free market capitalist he has personal interest in other countries so yeah he's a threat

"he has personal interest in other countries"

Yeah, that's what he refers to as being "fair trade" as opposed to free trade. It has nothing to do with a free market. If Trump actually does what he claims, it will be a stepping stone towards a free market and away from corporatism (the current state of the market).

I accepted it a long time ago, but there's a big difference between accepting something and being happy about it.

Keep fighting guys!
They've managed to turn 1 defeat into 3 with the election, the recount, and the electoral college. I'd like to see them make it 5, personally.

Protesting democracy is ignorant & antiAmerican.

I don't care about your fabricated, non existent issues. We aren't registering people by their faith. We are all being tracked & categorized but that's another issue.

The discussion here as I understand is regarding people protesting the results of a fair election. That's dumb.

If the electors had done their job they would have rejected both Clinton and Trump, but what is done is done and it's time for us all to come together to find a way forward.

No they didn't. Their job was to elect a president that would uphold the Constitution and they failed miserably.

How would they know that Trump will not uphold the constitution?
We have a tripartite government to do that. There is NOTHING to disqualify Trump from becoming president. The electors did their jobs perfectly.

He has not attempted to implement any such thing as president. If he does, then you have grounds to challenge. Campaign rhetoric cannot be taken as policy. He later clarified his positions.

They could always do with the Republicans have done for the last eight years against Obama: conspire against him and block his every move, slander him in the press, and mock his family.

The media is what it is. They are under corporate control after all. Parties are a problem as well although not equally. I am more concerned by election manipulation and currently that is Republican and extreme.
