(Writing this as it is currently happening in DC)
Just my observation, but I think what we are seeing in Washington is the base group of Americans who are fed up with being lied to and ignored for the past 12 years. And remember, not everyone who wears a MAGA hat is a MAGA subscriber. Stories have been swirling for days of how agitators were going to go along side the peaceful protestors to cause trouble. If this was Antifa or BLM instead of MAGA, the Capitol would be on fire by now.
I've been watching a live stream for the past hour or so of the protestors on the steps of the Capitol. They are chanting "USA" and waving flags. Obviously, I don't know everything about everything that is going on, and my observation could be off.
I've read FB posts from Trump Haters denouncing everything about this. I get that. 99.9% of the protestors are peacefully protesting. I think they genuinely believe the election was rigged for Biden to win. There certainly seems to be enough documented discrepancies to come to that conclusion.
Don't get me wrong. I think there are lots and lots of things wrong with Trump. There is no politician who is perfect. (For sure)
I'm sick of "politics as usual," that is, that people in power can get away with crimes just because they are in power. Take a look at the Clintons. Conservatives are tired of the GOP having no spine. I think people are starting to realize that they are the other side of the same political coin as the DNC. I'd love to see the end of both parties, or, at the very least, term limits. That would take care of a lot of the corruption.
I don't put my trust in a politician or a man-made institution. I trust God. At the same time, I understand the frustration believing the election was not just.
