I thought this was a joke at first but it’s all too real. There is a change.org petition that is attempting to force the electoral college to vote for Hillary Clinton:
Here’s their brilliant rationale:
On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!
Because Hillary hasn’t tried buying elections already.
We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Why?
Because you hate democracy.
Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.
Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President.
Cool story bro.
Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump “won” is because of the Electoral College.
Yea, who cares about the EC?
But the Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?
The electoral college is the result of 50 separate democratic elections.
SHE WON THE POPULAR VOTE.
Nice. Wanna cookie?
There is no reason Trump should be President.
Except for the fact that he won.
“It’s the ‘People’s Will'”
No. She won the popular vote.
Now that you mention it a third time it might actually matter.
“Our system of government under our Constitution says he wins”
No. Our Constitution says the Electors choose.
“Too many states prohibit ‘Faithless Electors'”
24 states bind electors. If electors vote against their party, they usually pay a fine. And people get mad. But they can vote however they want and there is no legal means to stop them in most states.
Historically electors have only voted against the people they’ve been directed to vote for if the candidate dies. But, facts never get in the way of a good change.org petition.
At first I thought they were kidding. Then I saw the ALL CAPS and I knew THEY MEANT BUSINESS!! This was my favorite part:
“Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump “won” is because of the Electoral College.”
It’s almost as if the electoral college matters! Like we’ve been doing it this way for 240 years. Like it’s in the Constitution or something. But we all know none of those things are true. We choose the leader of the free world like we choose the captain of the cheerleading squad – popular vote. Duh!!
This about sums up the average thought process of a millenial:
“We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton.”
Yea, you know all those people who waited hours in line to vote? All those people who work all day and give the government 40% of what they make in taxes? Fuck them. We should ignore their votes because the chosen candidate of a bunch of whiny SJW’s lost. That’s the American way!!
Hey, here’s an idea. Instead of letting the electoral college officially choose President-Elect Trump, we should let the people vote on who they think should be President, and then force the electoral college to vote for the candidate that the people choose. Oh wait, that already happened. Scratch that.
The funniest part about this is that it’s gotten over 1.6 million morons to sign it in the last 24 hours. Yet voter turnout significantly dropped in comparison to the last two elections, despite millions more eligible voters:
This is how dumb the cupcake generation is. They think signing a change.org petition carries more weight than actually showing up to the polls and voting.
The fact of the matter is that the 18-29 crowd just didn’t show up like they did for Obama. That’s because he was younger and way more cool. But Hillary? Who wants to vote for that old bag? Not cool.
“Clinton received a lower share of the vote among young voters (ages 18-29) than Obama received in 2012 or 2008. Young adults preferred Clinton over Trump by a wide 55%-37% margin; by comparison, Obama had a 60%-36% advantage over Romney in 2012 and a 66%-32% advantage over McCain in 2008.”
In other words, young Trump supporters showed up, just as they did for Romney and McCain. But young Obama voters stayed home, cried when Trump won, and started a change.org petition.
The funny part is when people on your timeline share the petition because they think it actually matters, but you can’t comment on it because they preemptively defriended you:
“No I won’t get over it!! Waaahhhh!! My candidate lost!! Wahhhhhhhh!! Sign my petition!! Wahhhhhh!!!”
In case you want to see just how real and official this petition is watch what happens when our friend Fuckface McGee signed it:
He gets added to the pile and they send him a nice little note asking for $5:
It’s just so embarrassing seeing adults sign this. I could understand a bunch of 14 year olds falling for this, but we’re talking about grown men and women here who think the Constitution can be amended arbitrarily with an online petition. Thank God these idiots don’t vote. The system works.
