Well, you know, half the US population is from bananna republics. If the shoe fits?

I think you are quite right, my guess is that the anti-Leftists will realize that beating the Leftists in elections is no longer enough. They will finally realize they have to take this to the next level to rid the land of the threat. It could indeed get very ugly.

HOAX bin FAKE NEWS Alert!!

They sure are trying to push that narrative.....

I would have completely dismissed it as well , had I not saw the Name Larry Lessig tied to this.

Larry is one of the few people worth listening too in the political arena.

Having said that , if they take the POTUS away from trump it will make the current fanatical Hillary supporters look like adults. This will not end up pretty in the short term and will blatantly expose the corrupted system to the sleeping sheep , which I doubt they want todo.

Than again the GOP and the DNC along with the MSM has been adding fuel to the fire to start a war among the individual Americans.

Interesting to see how it pans out, but I can't see this happening.

Lester Lawrence "Larry" Lessig III is an American academic, attorney, and political activist. He is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law at Harvard Law School and the former director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University. Wikipedia

Born: June 3, 1961 (age 55), Rapid City, SD
Party: Democratic Party
Spouse: Bettina Neuefeind (m. 1999)

So we have a lawyer - Democrat - political activist

another crazy nut

Remember John Titor's prediction?

A civil war between the big cities and the rest of the country. Russia takes the side of the country / small town folk, and helps them defeat the cities by use of a few nuclear strikes.

Always seemed improbable. But now, maybe less so. Reality is eerily beginning to match up with this one. The part that makes it an interesting prediction, is who would have ever seen Russia taking the side of country folks / right leaning portion of America even a few years ago.

The electors don't "steal" elections, they are the election.

Why the hell have you people been attacking Democrats for wanting to get rid of the electoral college, now that they might not do what you want you call it stealing and harming the electoral process???

And why would you blame the CIA because people all over the country think Trump is unfit to be President.

Is this Harvard professor, Larry Lessig, willing to pay the bail and fines for the Electors who break the law(s) of their respective states?

I love how they keep using that phrase "vote their conscience".

So if the electors decide to vote Trump, is that not considered "voting their conscience"?

That's what I call a true (non- race related) dog whistle phrase.

Forgive me for my ignorance on the matter. I do not understand how blocking the winner of an election is even plausible in a democracy. From my point of view it sure sounds like a dozen people or so could just change the outcome of an election to the way they would prefer to have it. Like the votes from the citizens don't matter one bit.

I get that its not that simple. I just do not get why it is even a thing at all. If someone would be so kind as to explain briefly I'm sure many viewers would benefit, as well as myself

No names or addresses?

For shame.

"They all have addresses , and they're not getting away
with it this time." For those supposedly invisible / invulnerable
gods in castles that never got a single bullet hole during WWII:
that was Bob Chapman before he died. God bless him.

We know them: we have for centuries. We are more every day.
Soon Lenin's cautionary is going to backfire big time.

If you Yanks do will have become Banana republic.

There is no way in hell anyone could ever make me take you seriously about anything you ever do from this point onward.

You're dancing the thin line as it is.

Though I don't believe it is going to happen, why would it make us a banana republic? It is a process that exists in our government for electors to vote their conscience.

The conscience of the elector (as far as the Constitution stated
in its spirit) was the elector's DUTY was to vote the will of his
constituency/state, and not his conscience. It's the only issue
about this recently argued by many others more versed in black
letter law than you and I, Reldra.. and the majority of states
that went that granular with their local black letter have said
the same. Now we're getting hair-splitting with people that
care about the will of the people instead of the will OF THE
STATES... the original intent of the College in the first place.

What troubles me is how badly democracy actually mirrors the
will of the people the more you (rhetorically) get herded together.
Where do the states' rights end? A socialist argues for democracy:
one citizen one vote. Do you live in SoCa? NYC? The rest of us to
be ruled by the remote 'hive' may not be that comfy for us hicks.
can't help it [sarc/]
I personally like Mexico City. More people per cardboard cubic yard
than anywhere else on the planet.[/sarc] Not hyperbole either, lookitup.
I just would prefer indoor plumbing and a good set of reloading dies.

PS I still think you're aces, it's just that your heart's too big.

The Dems/CIA are about to mess around and cause great damage to this country. If you thought you saw protests and violence when Hillary lost......steal the election from Trump. Not saying I will participate, but that will piss off millions to the point I don't think you want to see.

Yes, I am thinking if they pull this off we will get to find out what the FEMA camps are for.
