Dec 19th is getting very close, the day when the electoral college officially votes for president. As you probably already know, the electoral college was created to prevent a severely unqualified person to take office. Therefore, now is the time to utilize the electoral college for what it is supposedly supposed to do, and protect the American public from a demagogue such as trump.
We still can make a difference. It’s quick and easy to send an email to our electors through this website: asktheelectors.org . It just takes a minute or two to to let the people of the electoral college know we cannot afford to have a man such as trump run our country. (Not to mention, Hillary won the popular vote by 2.8 million votes.)
Here’s what my letter said if you’d like inspiration:
“Please do not harm the American public by allowing such a horrifyingly unfit man, such as trump, to take office.
Do what is right and protect the American public from a demagogue from taking control over our great country, the United States of America. You would be harming the American public, and the international community, by casting your vote for trump. We the people cannot allow this to happen, and yet our future is in your hands. You are responsible.
As you know the electoral college was created to ensure the president elect is prepared to be president “to an eminent degree, endowed with the requisite qualifications.” (The Federalist Papers) It is insanely clear just how unfit trump is, and you as an elector, have a duty to protect us.
Thank you for your time and I appreciate your position as an electoral college member.
