Faithful Electors

Year 2000 Election is all about the political system and Electoral College.

Year 2016 Election is all about the Presidential Electors.

This is the first time, people could see the names of those 538 Presidential Electors. Not only the names, but also their profile. There are many Electors do occupy office of trust or profit of the United States.

Here is the quote from Alexander Hamilton:

No senator, representative, or other person holding a place of trust or profit under the United States, can be of the numbers of the electors.
 Thus without corrupting the body of the people, the immediate agents in the election will at least enter upon the task free from any sinister bias.

Many Electors may be disqualified and may not be able to vote on December 19, 2016.

People have already lost faith in American political system. Do you think those 55 Presidential Electors would go to Sacramento enthusiastically on December 19, 2016 and select the President and Vice President of United States. No, certainly not.

In fact, on November 8th evening itself, on seeing the trend in Television, many citizens in California realized that their vote is not going to make any change in the National results and didn't go to the polling station.

So, there are many defects in American Political System; not in the Constitution of United States; but in the interpretation and the political tradition. There is no need to make any change in the Constitution; but give up the current system and adopt the Constitution word by word.

California Results

It is so surprising and shocking to see the results in California. People in large numbers voted against Donald Trump. Still, Donald Trump managed to win in five counties in California. People would have been enthusiastic if their county votes make an impact in the Presidential Election.

In the current system, the whole of California 55 Electors go waste. Within California, those five counties vote for Trump go waste. People would get interested in the political system only when they realize the fact that their individual vote counts. The current system - no precision; it is based on approximation. As per the result,

  • Hillary Clinton gets 50 Electoral Votes
  • Donald Trump gets    5 Electoral Votes
It's time, Alex Padilla, California Secretary of State publish the result; the names of those 55 Presidential Electors; with picture and profile of those winners in the web site. The California Secretary of State needs to issue the Certificate to all those 55 Presidential Electors. Have those Certificates been issued?

Let people know their Presidential Electors. Let people see the Ballot, Electoral College of the State of California. Let there be a picture of each Electors with their two ballot. Is that ballot a secret one?

From Alexander Hamilton:
Their transient existence, and their detached situation, already taken notice of, afford a satisfactory prospect of their continuing so, to the conclusion of it.

Detached - The Presidential Electors are transients and they are detached. They are not permanent and they are not attached to any one. So, there is no question about faithful or faithless.

The Presidential Electors are faithful to the Nation.  They do enjoy total and complete freedom to choose any one as the President and Vice President.

Look at the ballot. There is no list of names they could pick from.

The Presidential Electors are free to write with pen; any name. 
They could write names such as:
  • Steven Spielberg
  • Megan Kelly
  • Anderson Cooper
  • Eric Schmidt 

Andrew Jackson

  • won the popular vote
  • won 12 states out of 19 states
  • won Electoral Vote
  • but lost in the Congress
So, every one is silently busy in preparation for the December 19th Election. 

In fact, Hillary Clinton would not have lost this election; Hillary Clinton would have won many states with big margin; had Bernie Sanders been supportive and had demonstrated half of the current enthusiasm. Right after the election; since November 9th morning, Bernie Sanders has been very active. It appears to be a celebration for Bernie Sanders; celebration in the lose of Hillary Clinton; celebration in the lose of the Wall Street power. Donald Trump alone could not have defeated Hillary Clinton and her donors. Bernie Sanders did play a huge role in the defeat of Hillary Clinton. 

California Secretary of State, Alex Padilla needs to publish the result of written names, such as Bernie Sanders. Many have written Bernie Sanders as the President.

Ted Cruz. Not even a single picture; Ted Cruz with Donald Trump discussing about a possible position in the Trump Administration. How could it be possible; after that Republican National Convention speech.

When he said, drain the swamp, Donald Trump did mean it. If Donald Trump gets elected in December 19, 2016, you will see totally and completely a list of new names without any political career. Effective corporate executives without any experience in politics. 

Till December 19, 2016, Donald Trump has to continue with the current exercise; just to make sure that there will be no surprises. Marco Rubio understands Donald Trump and continues to challenge Donald Trump. 

Donald Trump could no longer say that the system is rigged. With the current victory, Donald Trump already lost his strength to fight against the system. Donald Trump needs to accept the verdict of December 19th result.

Hillary Clinton has already retired from public life.
Donald Trump currently enjoys the fake title, President Elect.
Bernie Sanders busy in strengthening his position. 

The 2016 Presidential Election will be in history. In future, with this much confusion, there will be many surprises. 

It's time for a Constitutional Convention; let us meet in Mountain View. When you participate and build the future, you will be regarded as the Founding Mothers and Fathers of Modern America.

In 2016, all electors will be faithful to the nation; not to any individual or to any pre-established body. The Faithless Electors of 2016 will be regarded and respected by the people as the most Faithful Electors of the Nation. All 538 will get a place in history when they act with total freedom and independence.
