500,000 People Sign Petition Asking Electoral College to Pick Clinton as President Instead of Trump

(Before It's News)

A petition on Change.org calling for the Electoral College to elect Hillary Clinton as President has earned over half of the signatures needed for it to be sent to the governing body.

EDITOR’S NOTE: As stupid as this seems on the surface, at this point, I am not taking anything for granted. Donald Trump voters across America need to be made aware of this, and even now be working against it. Remember that with the Clintons, it’s never over. Ever. And as Christopher Stevens and Vince Foster will tell you, these people will stop at nothing. And please be forewarned, while this petition strategy is far-fetched, it is not impossible. 

The petition, launched on Wednesday after Donald Trump was elected President, calls for the Electoral College to “ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton.” Although Trump won over the 270 necessary electoral votes to secure the Presidency, Clinton narrowly earned the nation’s popular vote.

The Electoral College – which was first introduced in 1804 – is comprised of 538 electors. Each state’s number of electors is decided by its number of members in Congress, which is dependent on the state’s population. So, when American citizens cast their ballots, they aren’t directly voting for president – they’re voting for electors. This year, Trump took 279, to Clinton’s 228.

Petition circulates for Clinton presidency:

Most states use a “winner-take-all” system when it comes to electoral votes, although there is no Constitutional provision or federal law that requires electors to vote a certain way. Twenty-six states and Washington, D.C., do, however, “bind” their electors to vote for the promised candidate on Dec. 19 – in this case, Trump. In many cases, “faithless electors” are forced to pay a fine if they vote against the popular choice.

Understanding what a “Faithless Elector” is:

In order for Hillary’s supporters to be successful, they will need to sway a significant number of the Electoral College to become “faithless electors”. This video will make it clear what exactly that is and how the process works. 

Maine and Nebraska follow a different method, called the congressional district method, which allots two electoral votes to the popular vote winner, and additional votes for each congressional district won by the candidates.

Crying Hillary Voters Compilation:

Faithless electors have not ever reversed the presidency.

The Change.org petition, which was at over 500,000 signatures on Thursday afternoon, said that Clinton supporters would be happy to pay any fees accrued by those who choose to be faithless electors.

“Mr. Trump is unfit to serve,” the petition claimed. “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.” source

  • I say we put those FEMA Re-Education camps to good use! After all, these people do qualify as needing to be re-educated. We need to try to erase their ed-JEW-cation and replace it with actual intelligence. :idea:

  • I wonder how many of those 500,000 petition signers actually exist ?

    Dead people, Donald Duck, even aliens on Uranus can sign a petition.

    • i exist. and i know many others. it’s time we became a true democracy where the majority rules and not some politicized, misinformed, delusional minority. this is the second time in the past twenty years when the election is stolen by the electoral college. without it we never would have had bush and the iraq war and now some pussy grabbing orangutang. one person, one vote. majority rules, the rule of the masses not some basket of deplorables.

      • You’re wrong about the wars. It’s been 8 years of Obama and we’re still at war in Iraq and Afghanistan…

        Obama/Clinton started new wars, in Libya, in Yemen, in Syria.

        Obama overthrew the governments of Honduras, and Ukraine, and tried to overthrow others, besides.

        The grabber of females was elected (1992) and re-elected (1996) by YOU folks. (I’m a democrat who had the sense to vote for Perot)

        And Bill didn’t just grope. He did much, much worse than that.

        And “one person, one vote” only works if you don’t have voter rolls padded with fraudulent names. And voting machines that don’t switch your vote. And voting machines that don’t use fractional vote mis-counting.

        “One person, one vote,” when one-fourth of the voting machines can count your vote as a fraction of a vote ? Or count it as a multiple ? Depending on who is supposed to win ?

        That’s the GEMS system.

        After losing elections for 60 years, by being supercilious, one would THINK liberals would learn. You don’t insult the public and then expect them to vote for you.

        “Politicized, misinformed, delusional minority” and “basket of deplorables” and please vote for us.

        Count the Bernie voters and the Trump voters and you have a large majority, who did not want what Clinton represents.

        Your problem was the most corrupt politician in American history, who promised she would never be indicted. What kind of a promise is that.

        Your problem is your candidate promised to go to war against Russia, starting in Syria.

        Your problem is your candidate promised to raise social security taxes, so wage earners carry more of the burden, and her wealthy backers carry less.

        Yes that is what she promised to do. Raise the taxes and spend the cash and fill the social security trust fund with more IOUs to be paid by us later.

        You thought you could control the public by controlling the language. Refuse to call illegal immigrants illegal, or criminal. Blur the line between legal and illegal. Then pretend that upholding the LAW and keeping illegals out is an attack on immigrants in general. And “racist.”

        What you have is a basket of buzz words that allow liberals to avoid ever thinking things through. You just react, with emotion, on cue.

        Well i’m sick of being called names for having common sense, and for reading the NEWS about illegal immigration, about human sexuality, about Islam.

        And that’s why nobody showed up at Clinton rallies, and nobody had Clinton yard signs. She could not get her own party’s nomination without CHEATING. Vote fraud and colluding with the media.

        She didn’t steal enough votes to win the general election, and the liberal mask comes off. All the pretense of love of humanity. The pretense of decency. Gone in a flash, and the TRUE NATURE of liberals was seen.

        You just want power. And you hate everybody.

  • Who are these People, surely Illegals & from Middle East

  • 324,118,787 million American’s and only 500,000 signed the petition – how many actually voted for Hillary?? If most of America voted for Trump then how did she win the popular vote?? CNN are saying there are mass demonstrators and the visuals show just a hand full of demonstrators.. It looks like someone went and handed out the same signs in every area…..I live in South Africa and let me tell you….. this is not a demonstration that will make you want to run…..here they burn and destroy everything in their path and god help you if you are in their way. When Trump takes office in January 2017…he wont forget !!

  • Hillary did NOT get the popular vote. They are counting the many hidden boxes of pro-Hillary ballots that were stacked in empty warehouses. There were tens of thousands of ballots. It is called fraud. George Soros has his fingers all over this along with HIRING and PAYING rioters to riot in many cities. People have seen them bused in and causing havoc. The very same scenario as Ferguson, Missouri. If the truth was known Hillary got about 17M votes and that is it. Trump has now won Michigan giving him 306 electoral votes total to Hillary’s 228. That is 78 more than Hillary.

  • Counter petition here: changeDOTorg/p/electoral-protect-state-s-rights-by-upholding-the-2016-presidential-electoral-votes

    This is not my petition, and I am not an American but I fully support it. I don’t have twitter or FB or I would try to make it viral. Sadly there are less than 130 people who have found this, I think I was number 13 but I am doing my best to help fight the insanity. Please help melt a snowflake or two.
    Tell everyone you know, get the word out!
