The scoreboard may show that the Democrats got their asses kicked but it hasn’t stopped Team Jackass from whining about the rules. In an epic tantrum, liberals are now demanding that the Electoral College reverse Donald Trump’s win and award the presidency to Hillary Clinton.
Never mind that the system has been in place for roughly two and a quarter centuries and that Democrats were perfectly fine with it until early Wednesday morning, the calls for changing the rules are growing louder. A number of petitions are being circulated – including one pushed by crypto-Nazi Lady Gaga – to overturn the will of the voters.
The International Business Times reports “Can Hillary Clinton Still Win? Electoral College To Vote In December After Candidate Wins Popular Vote”:
Hillary Clinton supporters aren’t ready to give up hope. A Change.org petition created Wednesday wants the Electoral College to vote for the Democratic candidate instead of President-elect Donald Trump.
“On Dec. 19, the electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win,” the petition reads. “However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine, which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!”
The petition doesn’t want the electors to vote for the New York businessman. “Mr. Trump is unfit to serve,” the petition says. “His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the republic.”
The petition adds Clinton should be president because she won the popular vote. “There is no reason Trump should be president,” it says. “She won the popular vote.” The latest poll showed Clinton had 400,000 more votes than Trump, according to CBS News, CNN and NBC News.
The Clinton propaganda megaphone Huffington Post is taking a page out of the Never Trumpers playbook by calling for Republican members of the Electoral College to vote their conscience and flip their votes over to Hillary.
According to HuffPo “The Electoral College Was Designed to Prevent Trump. You Can Make This Happen”:
Trump can still be stopped. The Founding Fathers foresaw just this catastrophe, and built a fail-safe into the Constitution. It’s called the Electoral College. Alexander Hamilton was explicit: this mechanism was designed to ensure that “the office of president will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.” In short, it was designed to prevent just this situation: the rise of an unqualified demagogue like Donald Trump.
You can make it do what it was meant to do.
The requirement here is modest: a small group of Republican electors must be persuaded to vote their conscience. No question that many of these are appalled at the prospect of a Trump presidency; surely a few are courageous enough to cast a vote for someone else. (Most if not all would vote for another Republican, of course; it doesn’t seem likely that many would choose Hillary Clinton.) Depending upon how current recounts turn out, somewhere between a minimum of ten and a maximum of thirty-seven electors would have to defect in order to bring Trump’s count down to less than 270.
If neither party ends up with 270 votes, then the decision passes to the House of Representatives, and a vote in that chamber determines the winner.
The appeal to GOP electors is circumstantial evidence that elements within the Republican establishment have been working hand in hand with the Clinton machine all along.
The new liberal narrative that Hillary won the popular vote is a world class effort to polish a turd but is nevertheless gathering steam. Mrs. Clinton raked in the votes on the enclaves of the cultural elitists but in pure geographical terms was whipped like a mule outside of urban areas, the place where the real Americans live and the Dems paid dearly for pandering to identity groups while taking a dump on the white working class. The same media that was wrong about everything (or simply lied) is helping to push the meme instead of slinking off in shame after their credibility took a fatal hit after Trump won.
The moves to get the electors to shirk their responsibility is just more proof of why Clinton and her temper tantrum throwing minions needed to be stopped and you can expect the weeping and gnashing of teeth – along with mob violence – to continue well after Donald Trump is sworn in as POTUS on January 20, 2017.
