Blog/2016 U.S. Presidential Election
Posted Nov 12, 2016 by Martin Armstrong
The degree of how morally debased many of those who have been supporting Hillary is being exposed just how anti-democratic these people are boarding on a virtual communist-like revolution. They have had the audacity to submit a petition to tell the electors not to vote for Trump on December 19th and still give it to Hillary saying they will pay the fines. This is so outrageous it would clearly instill bloodshed and an outright revolution. They claim to have over 2 million signatures and this is following the same path as the court in Britain saying the people had no right to decide their own future, only government.
This is the very same reasoning and call to arms that inspired the communist revolutions. It’s their way or no way. This is highly dangerous and makes one argue they should all be arrested as traitor to the constitution, confined the Arkansas, and then jettisoned from the nation and let them all regulate each other to create their world where they can live on other people’s money. This is so anti-democratic it is unbelievable. This makes a mockery of everyone who has ever died for this country and the fact that Hillary does not come out to condemn this is really troubling.
The petition states:
On 19 December the delegates of the electorate will vote. If they all agree, as their states have voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton when they choose. Even in countries where this is not allowed, their voice would be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure will pay the Clinton supporters gladly.
We call on the electoral men to ignore the voice of their states and to give their ballot papers to Clinton, Secretary of the Interior. Why?
Mr. Trump is not suitable. His hunt for the scapegoat among the Americans, his impulsiveness, bullying, lying, his tales of sexual assaults, and his utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.
Secretary of State Clinton has received more votes and should be President.
Hillary won the votes of the voters. The only reason Trump is “won” is the system of the electors.
But the electors can vote for each of the candidates. Why, then, should we not use this undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?
24 states have mandatory rules for the electors. If electors vote against their party, they usually pay a fine. And people get up. But anyway, they can choose whoever they want and there are no legal means to stop them in most states.
The nationwide protests against Donald Trump’s election have revealed that the socialist dream of robbing other people’s money to better your own life has exposed the true violent nation of such a movement. In Portland, thousands marched and some smashed store windows, lit firecrackers and sparked a dumpster blaze. Some 4,000 protesters surged into the downtown area late chanting “we reject the president-elect!” The computer projecting civil unrest will be on the rise many assumed would be right-wing people. But the violence is coming from the left who believe it is their right to oppress others for their own benefit.
I warned the 2016 is 112 years since the 1904 election when Marxism first took over the Presidency. This was the major turning point and we are witnessing how these people are no different from the supporter of Stalin. They would destroy the country and the system to get their way. This is really very disturbing. This would eliminate State’s Rights and by making the popular vote rule rather than state by state defeats the very structure of the “United States” for there would be no separation of power whatsoever. This is effectively gutting the entire concept of a democratic republic and transform the country into an authoritarian federal entity. All states should then also relinquish their representation in the Senate. To eliminate the electoral college means you must end the pretense of separate states.
