Bush V Gore Supreme Court Decision Opens Door For Challenge of Presidential Election Results

Why are we reading this in British newspapers and not seeing it on the evening news? Why are Dems such wimps?

so far, the Democrats have been "timid" about doing this, he said."It is striking to see how committed they are to allowing this train wreck to occur," he said. "And more surprisingly, how little careful attention has been given (at the top at least) to just how vulnerable—given Bush v. Gore—the current (system for counting votes in the) electoral college is".
...the current system represents an "unconstitutional violation of the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment and its bedrock principle of one man one vote," and therefore the election result could in theory be overturned by a court...Mr Lessig criticised the failure of those "at the top" to consider launching a legal challenge.

"Why are these big states standing by quietly as their voters are essentially silenced by the unconstitutional inequality?"
"What about the unfairness being felt by the millions of voters whose votes were effectively diluted, or essentially disenfranchised?" he said, suggesting the Attorney Generals of large states such as New York or California could easily walk into the Supreme Court and ask them to hear a case.

A Bipartisan Effort to Not Elect Trump is Gaining Steam

The Hamilton plan gains steam: Texas Republican elector goes rogue, saying he won’t vote for Trump

“The United States was set up as a republic. Alexander Hamilton provided a blueprint for states’ votes,” Suprun writes. “Federalist 68 argued that an Electoral College should determine if candidates are qualified, not engaged in demagogy, and independent from foreign influence. Mr. Trump shows us again and again that he does not meet these standards. Given his own public statements, it isn’t clear how the Electoral College can ignore these issues, and so it should reject him.”

Hillary Clinton now leads Trump by over 2% of the popular vote and has the second most votes of any Presidential candidate in history.  Do not think for one moment that if the Electoral College removes Trump that Hillary will be President. The decision would go to the heavily GOP dominated House with John Kasich being the early favorite. 

And don;t think this move is coming from just Dems...Republican elector Christopher Suprun of Texas wrote an op-ed in The New York Times on Monday that he cannot vote for Trump because “now I am asked to cast a vote on Dec. 19 for someone who shows daily he is not qualified for the office.”

Are YOU Un-American?

Hey all my former FaceBook friends who unfriended me when I pointed out that you were repeating lies and propaganda, check this out and, if you are decent and honest, you'll join in the effort to clean up American journalism and hold Trump accountable if the Electoral College fails to protect us. is a site that works to maintain a list of sites that are NOT TO BE TRUSTED because they either repeat fake news or originate it. If you share news memes from any of these site you are the enemy, too! 

Please educate yourself. America depends on YOU!
