Just a Thought

At least one Elector of the Electoral College has said he'd rather resign than cast his vote for Trump. At least six other Electors have stated they planned to change their votes for Hillary Clinton.

Voting contrary to how your state voted carries a fine for people in the Electoral College. The fine can be about $1,000. For a lot of them, it's no big deal... but I'll bet for some, it's the only thing keeping them from changing their vote. Clinton won the popular vote by over 2 million.

So... What if somebody started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to cover the fees of Electors that change their votes to Clinton? Would that be a bad thing? Would that be wrong?

Quote

America isn't easy. America is advanced citizenship. You've gotta want it bad, 'cause it's gonna put up a fight.

It's gonna say, "You want free speech? Let's see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who's standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours."

You want to claim this land as the land of the free? Then the symbol of your country cannot just be a flag. The symbol also has to be one of its citizens exercising his right to burn that flag in protest. Now show me that, defend that, celebrate that in your classrooms.

Then you can stand up and sing about the land of the free.


--"The American President" (1995)

Dear Trump Voters...

So, lemmie get this straight...

You voted against Hillary because it was possible her emails might have disclosed top secret information.

So you voted for the guy who is considering David Patraeus (who really did disclose top secret information) for Secretary of State. *LINK*

Way to go, Trump voters. Way to go.
