I didn't see this on here, but apparently there is still a chance that Trump could be blocked from the Presidency, though I doubt it will happen. It didn't know that the election isn't officially decided until December and I bet most Americans aren't aware of it either. Their plan is to vote for another Republican so Trump doesn't get enough EC votes. Very interesting indeed.

This has happened before.

Can it happen again, yes. However, based on what is being reported, it is highly unlikely that enough of the electors would be swayed to change their votes to make a difference.

It looks like the left isn't going to be happy until democracy is completely destroyed, or they die trying.

OK, let's see if I have this right. The guy in the article is an elector from Washington, who won't be voting for Trump in any event. He's going to try to convince the other electors to vote for a compromise Republican candidate. But no, they don't know who that would be.

I suggest you don't hold your breath.

Quite correct. Even as a Private Citizen, Donald Trump is doing more good for this country than.. Well, I won't go there. Let's just say that he's proving himself worthy of the Presidency of our great nation.

(Lyrics)

Lot of knots, lot of snags,
Lot of holes, lot of cracks, lot of crags.
Lot of naggin' old hags,
Lot of fools, lot of fool scum bags.
Oh, it's such a drag, what a chore,
Oh, your wounds are full of salt.
Everything's a stress and what's more,
Well, it's all somebody's fault.

Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Get over it. Get over, it. Heyaa.
Ohhh

Make you sick, make you ill,
Makes you cheat, slipping change from the till.
Had it up to the gills,
Makes you cry,
While the milk still spills.
Ain't it just a bitch?
What a pain(pain)
Well, it's all a crying shame.
What left to do(to do)...but complain?
Better find someone to blame.

Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Get over it. Get over, it. Heyaa.
Ohhh

Got a job, got a life,
Got a four-door and a faithless wife.
Got those nice copper pipes,
Got an ex, got a room for the night.
Aren't you such a catch?
What a prize(prize)...
Got a body like a battle axe.
Love that perfect frown, honest eyes
We ought to buy you a Cadillac.

Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey!
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey! (Get over it)
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey! (Get over it)
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Hey! (Get over it)
Get, get, get, get, get over it!
Get over it. Get over, it. Heyaa.
Ohhh

Ah , You Do Know that Most States Reserve the Right to Replace their Electors if Need Be ?


" Political parties often choose Electors for the slate to recognize their service and dedication to that political party. They may be state elected officials, state party leaders, or people in the state who have a personal or political affiliation with their party's Presidential candidate. (For specific information about how slates of potential Electors are chosen, contact the political parties in each state.)

The second part of the process happens on Election Day. When the voters in each state cast votes for the Presidential candidate of their choice they are voting to select their state's Electors. The potential Electors' names may or may not appear on the ballot below the name of the Presidential candidates, depending on election procedures and ballot formats in each state.


Are there restrictions on who the Electors can vote for?
There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their states. Some states, however, require Electors to cast their votes according to the popular vote. These pledges fall into two categories—Electors bound by state law and those bound by pledges to political parties.

The U.S. Supreme Court has held that the Constitution does not require that Electors be completely free to act as they choose and therefore, political parties may extract pledges from electors to vote for the parties' nominees. Some state laws provide that so-called "faithless Electors" may be subject to fines or may be disqualified for casting an invalid vote and be replaced by a substitute elector. The Supreme Court has not specifically ruled on the question of whether pledges and penalties for failure to vote as pledged may be enforced under the Constitution. No Elector has ever been prosecuted for failing to vote as pledged.

Today, it is rare for Electors to disregard the popular vote by casting their electoral vote for someone other than their party's candidate. Electors generally hold a leadership position in their party or were chosen to recognize years of loyal service to the party. Throughout our history as a nation, more than 99 percent of Electors have voted as pledged. ?

According to Baba Vanga, there isn't going to be another President.

I'm still trying to figure out how that will come about.

Will there be a "tie" in the EC vote?

Will it end up in the House of Representatives, and a big fight where nobody wins?

Will America decide to abolish the Office of President, seeing that it's so divisive, and obviously an institution that works against the primary goals of the US Constitution..."To make a more perfect UNION"...and thus change the design of the government to just have a committee of rulers instead of one divisive guy, who threats to become a tyrant?

My guess is something surprising is going to happen this time around. Exactly what, is unknown.
