Isn't point of democracy to accept election result?

Given the liberal bias you are often accused of having, I guess you are out to embarrass the folks who write those letters you publish about the arrival of socialism, the loss of our freedoms, the destruction of America as we know it, etc.

I thought the whole idea of democracy is to vote for whom you want, and then accept the results as the will of the people, as Mitt Romney did so gracefully. I hope that the folks who write these silly letters are at least true to their principles and do not take advantage of that socialist institution called Medicare.
