The American Community United and the Hillsborough County Caribbean Democratic Caucus is asking to the US Congress and the Electoral College to listen to us.
This year, the Electors vote on December 19. Tradition and some state laws dictate that the Electors vote for the candidate who won the most votes in their state, However, the U.S. Constitution allows the Electors to cast their vote for anyone who meets the legal qualifications, and there are 21 states with no laws against it more than enough electors to keep Trump out of the White House. If just 38 Republican Electors vote for Hillary Clinton, she wins.
Why we want Trump out of office?
Donald Trump is the kind of President our Founding Fathers warned us about. Alexander Hamilton, who was second only to James Madison in crafting the US Constitution, worried in The Federalist Paper that someone unqualified, but with a talent for "low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity" could attain office. As a protection against this, he urged the Electors study the requirements of the job, be "favorable to deliberation", and, ultimately, choose only someone suited to be Commander in Chief.
If Trump were truly the people's choice, arguments over whether he is fit for office to be moot. Surely most Americans would not seek to deny victory to the most popular candidate. But Trump not only lost the popular vote, he's actually the biggest loser ever. No one has ever become president after such a trouncing in the national popular vote. More Americans - millions more - voted for Hillary Clinton.
Trump would be the first president in American history who has never held any public office. He has never held the public trust, and he has demonstrated very little knowledge of, or respect for, the US Constitution.In fact, many of Trump's proposals violate the Constitution, particularly the Bill of Rights.
He has proposed forced religious registration
He has advocated torture
He has advocated violating international treaties.
He has appointed as his closest advisors extremists with a history of supporting civil rights violations.
He has attacked the First Amendment, appearing to condone violence at rallies.
He has mocked of journalists based on race, gender, and disability and threatened the freedom of the press with lawsuits.
He has attack women, immigrants, people of color, Muslims, people with disabilities, and the Bill of Rights.
Our electoral system was designed to protect slavery - but it was also designed to protect our country. While that system has resulted in more Electors pledged for Trump, it also obliges those Electors to vote their conscience. It is imperative they do so this year to protect our Constitution and to preserve the people's vote. Please signed this petition. Thank you!
