Reader comment on item: The Need to Concede

Dr. Pipes,
I'm so disappointed I came here hoping to hear from your immense historical knowledge how other countries in which a coup took place were, if they were, able to recover to any extent from the tyranny that followed.

Please put aside your brilliance and use your common sense to see the run-up to and election itself have all the events typical of manipulated elections in many countries, 110% votes counts, 100% ballot tranches, no observers but whistle-blowers, software and hardware owned by interested parties, mathematical near impossibilities, manipulated press, one candidate and their staff harassed and jailed, evidence altered, admissions, and no punishments, dirty cops fired galore, etc. etc. etc. Putin couldn't have had a more transparent election. Again, I respect your brilliance but look at the tens of thousands of Trump supporters and the 12 people that democrats and Lady Gaga could attract. Even if many don't like Trumps tweets and personality, is that indicative of an after-close 75 million LEGAL votes, more than groundbreaking Saint Obama, or does something smell bad here?

Today's democratic party is not that or our youth, the mainstream elements are radical left. Biden is obviously a front man only. If we are in a country now where it doesn't really matter who votes or how they vote, advising people to get in line and not make trouble for the greater good may not be the best plan, especially for a certain group of people. Doing nothing is all it took last time.

I endorsed Trump's challenges, so why this lecture?
