...The vote for the public is NOT "Do you want Trump's electors, consisting of Mike Smith, who lives at 305 Main Street in Glenolden, PA 19045 and has a phone number of (610) 555-6834, and Mary Jones, who lives at..."...

Also, I'd like to point out that the electors are NOT publicly known (even their names) until AFTER the election, so there isn't a SINGLE public voter voting for an elector knowing who that elector actually is...

You're being obtuse (and, most likely, intentionally)...
Says thou from the top of bull**** mountain! I'm beginning to understand the mental gymnastics you republicans go through to avoid facts.

First of all, everything I've read and seen leads me to believe that the electors are known before the Presidential Election. They are not 'hidden' from the public, and furthermore they are even printed on the ballots under the presidents name in some states.

Perhaps you can source your claim that the names of state electors are kept secret until after the election?


Secondly, the wording is quite clear, the constitution is quite clear. You can attempt to muddy the waters all you want, but the fact remains :

"When the voters in each state cast votes for the Presidential candidate of their choice they are voting to select their state's Electors"

It amuses me that you are even trying to argue what is a proven and sourced fact.

You said electors are elected. You were shown they are not and instead hand-picked by the campaigns. Being hand-picked is not being elected.

Thanks for playing.

You and trump have a lot in common:

Not wrong. This is in the original article:

"When voters voted for Trump, they were actually voting for his slate of electors,"

This is in the second article posted as a source:

"When you vote for president, you’re actually voting for that candidate’s slate of electors."


These people signed up to be electors for Donald Trump, probably the most controversial candidate in US history except for maybe Lincoln? Im sure the electors would rather be anonymous, I mean it must be a scary thing to be responsible for having to vote for a narcissistic fascist and have everyone from here on out for the rest of your life know that you did. But these people can cry me a river. Time for Republicans to finally have some personal accountable for their actions and stop blaming 'the left'.

Your source, the ask the electors.org is a new site with a single agenda. Writing or otherwise contacting the electors for the sole purpose of demanding electors and vote for Hillary. Hardly an impeccable source.

Translation: I can't argue with your facts. They are completely correct. So let me try this...

You might want to actually open the site before dribbling all over your bib.

I didn't use the Ask the electors website as a source for anything. Id ask you to read my comments first but I suspect your reading comprehension is about as good as Trumps, gotta be 140 characters or less.

Post 15.

I'll ignore the personal slams. Getting personal is the sign of a person out of ideas.
