When our founding fathers created the Electoral College, they meant it to stop fascists like Donald Trump. They surely didn’t mean for it to elect people like him, despite the fact that he lost the popular vote!
Now, some electors are fighting back – and trying to stop Donald Trump from stealing the election despite Hillary’s clear popular vote win.
Trump probably has a 37-vote majority in the Electoral College, as things stand. It is likely that even if Trump electors change their minds, the states will send different results, and the House of Representatives will steal the election from Hillary Clinton by recognizing the vote totals from states, rather than those from electors as the constitution provides.
It’s time to stand up to the minority of Americans who chose a bigoted sexual assaulter over the first woman president. His treatment of women and minorities is unconscionable, and I refuse to stand idly by while he ruins this country.
It’s good that there are people willing to stand up to Donald Trump. If just a handful of electors agree, this election can be changed.
Now hear me out, here. I know what you’re thinking. The House of Representatives is controlled by Republicans, and they will never do what is right.
That may be true, but it’s never too late to do the right thing. And we have to stand our ground and tell the misogynists in the GOP that their time is up!
2016 was the last election they can ever win with nothing but angry white men. Times are changing, and NOW is the time to lay the framework for 2020.
Please stand with the electors who are encouraging Trump electors to do the right thing and vote for Hillary, as the constitution allows.
If we don’t stand to be counted, who will?
