Articles is such a vein totally ignore the many shortcomings of Hilary Rodman Clinton.I do not see her as being any more "fit" to be president. The DNC with its actions to ensure Sanders defeated, including "fake news" (throwing of chairs at rallies) and the purging of voters such as happened in New York along with all of the other stuff revealed by Wikileaks , show a sleazy campaign just as happened with Donald trump. It was very much a Mr Sleaze meet Mrs Sleaze campaign.
Hilary Rodman Clinton also told "many lies" and in fact claimed if the results of the election not honored by Mr Trump it proof he a demagogue and undemocratic. The campaign on both sides should be seen as embarassing , just as the rest of the World saw it.
This nonsense about "wise elders" saving the people from themselves is exactly that. It is saying the peoples in the States represented by the Electors that flip , are not entitled to their vote. It is elitist swill and it this elitism that at the heart of the rot in the Democratic party , the leadership of which continues to advance the meme that It knows what is best for the people it claims to represent as it promotes policies that fill the pockets of the 1 percent even as it promotes yet more wars abroad.
That Trump is a racist and a bigot yet was elected to run as the republican candidate is a reflection of the rot in the system just as the rot in the system put forward Hilary Rodman Clinton as the Democratic candidate. It is also a reflection of underlying racism and bigotry amongst a large segment of the population.
I do not think it wise to fix rot with more rot which is what the Electoral is by suggesting that in order to slavage the election the peoples in that College simply elect the person they prefer over that which the people in their State voted for. I do not think "democracy' served by implying that those that voted Mr trump should not have votes counted because they racist.
One might as well claim these people have no right to vote and that every bit as wrong as the purging of voters rolls.
I find it so very odd that so many people suggesting that the members of the Electoral College vote thier conscience and overrule the expressed desire of the majority of the people in the State they represent were the same voices that claimed that people did not have the luxury of voting their conscience when Sanders was running against Clinton in the primaries and were purists rather then realists when they did so. When Clinton won that primary those that decided to vote their conscience were also slammed for staying home or voting Green. The people that supported ms Clinton would not be in this situation had THEY voted their Conscience in the primaries.
If one really wants the electors to vote their conscience and does not care who the people in the State voted for, one might as well demand they vote for Stein as president.
That won't happen.
