Anti-Trump Protesters

I have no problem with the anti-Trump protestors exercising their first amendment rights. However, I do have one question for them:

Did you vote for Hillary Clinton?

Because if you did not vote for Hillary Clinton, don’t you think it’s a bit rich that you are protesting Donald Trump? A few more votes for Clinton and Trump would not be president. Anyone who refrained from voting for Clinton or voted for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein has to face up to the fact that they helped elect Donald Trump (or detracted from Clinton’s popular vote margin, which helps Donald Trump). And if you helped elect Donald Trump, why are you protesting?

Free speech is fine, but in a democracy we change leaders by voting. The chance to vote for a president other than Trump was less than 90 days ago. The next chance will be almost 1400 days from now. That’s a long time to keep protesting.
