SCOTUS on Electoral College

Submitted by ub on Mon, 07/06/2020 - 17:05

Back in 1952, SCOTUS ruled that states do not violate the Constitution when they require electors to pledge that they will abide by the results of the popular vote. But the justices had never before decided whether it was constitutional to enforce those pledges.

Today the high Court said 538 people who cast the actual votes for president in December as part of the Electoral College are not free agents and must vote as the laws of their states direct.

The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate narrowly acquitted POTUS in his historic impeachment trial. There were two charges brought against the Republican president that forced senators to vote on whether to remove him from office.

The Republicans narrowly voted to acquit him for his request that Ukraine investigates political rival Joe Biden, a contender for the Democratic nomination. One member of the GOP Senator Mitt Romney joined the Democrats by voting for conviction. No Democrats voted for acquittal.

Does America long for a day when every vote counts and for majority rule to be the law of the land? Do We The People want our Democratic elections protected from the foreign intervention? If so, say so the best thing to do now is to speak up before it is too late.

Is the Grand Old Party involved in a criminal enterprise? Will Americans allow The Republicans to turn the US into a Banana Republic?

The Electoral College is a mechanism established by the #USA Constitution for the election of the president and vice president of the United States by small groups of appointed representatives, electors, from each state, including the District of Columbia.

Some say #ElectoralCollege was cooked up by slave states included in our Constitution to hold onto power. What say you?

Moscow Mitch Or Russia Mitch?

US Senator Mitch McConnell used to act like a Republican #Russia hawk for as far as anyone can recall, so what explains blocking election security and gun background check legislation? #RussianMitch or #MoscowMitch are appropriate. Mitch McConnell was the one who stopped in August 2016 any and all reference to the Russians attacking our #American election when @POTUS Barack Obama wanted to warn the entire nation of these clear and present dangers. What explains the following?

- The Deripaska sanctions

- The Russia-tied political contributions

POTUS ratings are under water in all the national polls. However, Donald Trump’s possible re-election might not be quite so bleak.
This one is a worst rip-off than buying a degree from Trump University.

His advantage in the Electoral College, relative to the popular vote, may now be even larger than it was in 2016, according to analysts of national election results and polling data.

US government officials outlined "active threats" to U.S. elections as it briefed Congress Wednesday on steps the government has taken to improve election security in the wake of Russian interference in 2016.

The threat posed by Russia to #USA and other Western interests is unlike anything seen since the recent past. Russia has forces or proxies deployed in Cuba, Venezuela, Syria, Ukraine and, others. There is smoke, but there is also fire and there is a lot of fuel being added every day.
