    I wonder if the reaction would be the same had electors done this to Trump.

    So four people lied when they pledged under the law to vote for the candidate nominated by the party, in this case Clinton.

    If he lost who gives a rip? Whether Hillary gets all her electoral votes is a moot point other than the number that shows up on Wikipedia.

    It certainly doesn't help maintain the integrity of the process, and goes against the will of the voters. Whether it was the winning candidate, or the losing candidate, should be moot.

    Yup, and it theoretically costs them up to $1000. Wonder if they took Michael Moore up on his offer? Doubt this was what he had in mind lol.

    as I learned recently, it's a state by state issue.

    Yet there was a big push on the left for electors to go against the will of the people and not cast their vote for the winner, but that doesn't threaten the integrity? The fact that some Indian elder named squatting face got one of the losers votes is polluting the process. 99.9% of the voters wouldn't even know it unless it showed up in their facebook feed.

    Which is just as wrong.

    And honestly, I have a cousin-in-law who is a staunch republican (very, very religious, who works on state campaigns in Dallas), and he is part of a group who have asked electors here in Texas to not vote Trump. So, it's not just liberals.

    I'm sure Moores offer is just as good as madonnas offer.

    I don't think conservatives would have bothered with threatening electors ;)

    That's just because they're pissed the evangelical holly roller influence is all but dead. The christian right is all butt hurt and some are having a hissy fit about it because the party they love just got hijacked by a misogynistic, womanizing, anti-christ and they're ready to soil themselves.

    It's just more of the same, yet Liberals and Democrats fail to learn the lessons! America has endured a month of rioting and tantrums from the Left telling us how unfit Trump is, and what a disaster he'll be for the country--and yet when the day came for the Electoral College to make a decision, it's the Democrats who took it on the chin. Again.

    Are you guys listening? America sure is. And it seems we're not happy with you at all. Oh no, precious.

    Mostly male. We're going to have to import more minorities and adjust what underpants men wear in order to get the testes at the desired temp to produce more females. So an injustice like this never happens again.

    A month of rioting? They must be doing it secretly.

    And let's get real - we've had to deal with 8 years of tantrums. It's time to pull up your big boy pants and laugh it off. You'll get used to it. We certainly did.

    And your constant use of the term precious makes me think you're some serial killer in hiding.
