we'll find out in just a little bit, whether the electoral college vote can be bought, or extorted. i don't think so, but i could be wrong. ethics and honor just don't mean as much in this country as they used to, nor does a person's word or pledge.
update, 12.19.2016 at 8.46 p.m. pst . donald trump lost two unfaithful electors, totaling 304 electoral votes, significantly over the 270 needed to secure the presidency. in a somewhat odd turn of events, hillary clinton who had encouraged electors to "vote their conscience" by voting for her, lost 5 unfaithful delegates who were committed to her, most of them voting for bernie sanders who was jobbed by clinton and the democratic national committee from winning the democrat nomination. how quickly the clinton's forget. end update.

p.s. 12.19.2016. it is not over. the leftist media continues its incessant drum beat attacks, and likely will. in the old days in this country loud mouthed editors were often run out of town on a rail, their presses smashed and their offices burned. it was a wonderful way of tempering their then radical sentiments. one should never forget the lessons of history.
george soros hasn't: he understands the way of european leftist thuggery. he tried demonstrations and threats of violence to sway the electoral college, and paid demonstrators to tie up freeways and smash windows in "spontaneous outpouring of opposition" to trump's elections, in cities all over america. he is sort of running out of options, from my perspective, .... , but, then again, i really don't understand the fertile mind of an accomplice and supporter of the murder of thousands of helpless persons, during wwii's holocaust. nor, the mind of a person who said it was the happiest time of his life: not too many jews who survived it would describe it just that way. he is, in fact, a war criminal against his own people. it will be a better world when he is gone from it. i hope i live to see it. we'll see.
