Alexander Hamilton said the Electoral College was to ensure “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.”
“Endowed with the requisite qualifications”. If a candidate for County Executive out here in Snohomish County were to have publicly and cruelly mocked and humiliated a handicapped man, that candidacy would end that instant. Donald Trump is a man who not only mocks the handicapped, but who welches on his agreements, fails to pay tradesmen for their work, dodges his taxes, fleeces trusting students and is sexually deviant. Does he not also fall short of the “requisite qualifications”. Indeed he does!
So the American people are wondering: Why is the Electoral College about to give Mr. Hamilton a thumb in the eye and getting ready vote for the candidate who:
- Fails the “requisite qualifications” test, and;
- Lost the popular election by more than a half-million votes? (So much for the one-man-one-vote idea.)
In voting for Trump, you, the Electoral College, will be thrusting an unqualified loser down unwilling throats. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to put country above party. It’s time to do two, necessary things:
- Give Hillary Clinton the victory she so clearly won at the polls and, more importantly;
- Prevent a dreadful incubus from holding the highest office in our land.
