Ever since November 8, when Trump upset the liberal world to crush Hillary Clinton in electoral votes, there have been a sad and pathetic movement to block the Electoral College.
Petitions have been circulated, celebrities have bellowed like cows, and liberal spokespersons all seemed convinced that they can sway Republican electors.
They’re forgetting that there are many reasons this will never happen. The law, in particular, requires the electors vote for the person that won. There is zero wiggle room for that. Not only that, but an elector would betray their own party–something they are very unlikely to do–if they don’t back the winner.
Yet we’ve seen in the aftermath of this election just how little liberals care about the law or the democratic process of our country.
Thankfully, the Electoral College takes their responsibility very seriously.
From Western Journalism:
There are some Republican members of the Electoral College who wish they were not voting for President-elect Donald Trump on Monday.
However, an Associated Press survey of more than 300 electors has found that Trump opponents’ dreams to use the Electoral College as the final place to block Trump’s ascent to the White House have little hope of becoming reality.
Although the electors admit to an unprecedented wave of pleas to change their votes, AP noted that electors cited everything from the law, to duty, to loyalty to cast their votes for Trump…
“Hell will freeze and we will be skating on the lava before I change,” said Republican Tom Lawless of Tennessee. “He won the state and I’ve pledged and gave my word that that’s what I would do. And I won’t break it.”
It’s really quite shocking to think that these elitist liberals consider the Electoral College as selfish and vile as they are. The left didn’t get their way fairly, so they want to subvert the law of the land to prevent the President-Elect from taking office.
They seem to think Republicans will break their vows and the law to go along with them, as if they are just as disrespectful of our society as these liberals are. They must be living in a fantasy world, where they expect people to do what they say, because they said it.
Maybe that’s why they lost so terribly.
Since the election, we’ve had to put up with a hell of a lot from these bitter sore losers. An attempt to undermine the Electoral College is disgraceful and unacceptable. It’s high time the left gets over itself, and starts backing our country again.
