#1 ..but they got my state!

They just stripped me of my franchise to vote for president in order to support a dozen major metro areas across the country. One party. "Everything in the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state." At least the governor and the state legislators are on record for the reckoning after the civil war they provoke.

#2 As Trumps poll numbers go up in the aftermath of the Mueller report a few cooler heads realize how this absolutely stupid idea could blow up in their faces and make them historical-level laughingstocks.

#3 The Dems are always assiduously gnawing away at the fabric of this great country. Is it time to declare them a subversive terrorist organization and move on without them.

#4 but they got my state!

Sue ‘em. Class action. All the way to the Supreme Court. This is exactly the kind of thing blogging conservative law professors ought to want to get their teeth into — or will happily publicize and connect you with those willing to help.

...My concern now is that if that happens, you will see a serious call for the electors from those states to vote for the other guy, "because there's no possible way Trump could have won honestly." And THAT will be where the fighting starts.

#6 As the story mentions, only 13 states plus the district of Columbia have voted to bypass the electoral college. Together they have 184 EC votes. All 184 went to Hillary in 2016.

Ohio's EC votes went to Trump. That is why the anti-EC effort failed there.

This effort is merely the latest method of democrats rearranging_the_chairs_on_their_titanic.
