"We owe the system nothing"

Kurt Schlichter is positively on fire with this denunciation of all the crocodile tears being shed over Trump's reluctance to issue a blanket, unqualified statement that he will accept the results of the election.
We owe the system nothing. Nada. Zip. Instead, the system owes us fairness and honesty, and without them it has no right to our default acceptance of its results. That acceptance must be earned. This means that the system must aggressively police its own integrity, and this year it has utterly failed to do so.
When democracy becomes a tool in the hands of a self-appointed ruling class, when the democratic system is used to undermine individual liberty, then something's got to give - and, if we're to hang on to the kind of country our founders envisioned, it ain't gonna be be liberty.

It's scary how many people, respectable people, are very upset.

The ones who make this country work.

If they had started an "Occupy" type movement in June, by now all of our political 'leaders' would be covered in tar and feathers and we'd be halfway through building a wall from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific along the border.
Probably on Mexico's side of any river.

Yet another of those 'what ifs'.

What if Hilliary had said exactly what Trump said, and Trump had said he would accept the results. Her lapdogs would be so excited, they'd piss themselves; telling everyone how brilliant she is, because "You know, it might be like how Algore was robbed in the 2000 election, and we can't have that!"

I don't care if you support Trump, Clinton, or some third party chump -- if you think the system must be respected regardless of its condition, you are a cretin.
