If you want to really know why there was a protest at the Capital 1/6/21, watch video above. And if you really want to know why the protest turned into a riot, read this piece I wrote about Charlottesville. Same play, same playbook, same result.
The first law of elections is:
"It is not the citizen's job to prove election fraud, rather it is the state's job to prove a clean and auditable election."The reason there was a protest that turned ugly on 1/6/21 was because the states failed miserably and broke the first law of elections. Without that you don't have elections, and without elections you don't have a democratic republic.
