Texas Elector: Go “F*CK YOURSELF” To Trump AND Then …
Wow, I can’t believe there is still hope to knock Trump out using the Electoral College. It’s not going to happen if we stay silent, however! Texas elector Art Sisneros has made the decision to resign because he absolutely refuses to vote for Trump, and other electors can now follow suit! This is a prime example of the kind of resistance that we need and that this call to action encourages!
But it won’t happen if we remain silent. Sisneros wrote on his blog, “If Trump is not qualified and my role, both morally and historically, as an elected official is to vote my conscience, then I can not and will not vote for Donald Trump for President. I believe voting for Trump would bring dishonor to God. The reality is Trump will be our President, no matter what my decision is. Many are furious that I am willing to have this discussion publicly.
Personally, I wish more civil officers would be honest about their convictions. Assuming a Trump Presidency is their ultimate goal, they will get that. The problem is, that isn’t what they want. They want a democracy. They will threaten to kill anyone who challenges their power to vote for Skittles for dinner. That is evidence alone to prove that our republic is lost. The shell may remain, but in the hearts of the people and functionality of the system our republic is gone. I also believe that a pledge is a man’s word that he will follow through on something he committed to. God’s Word is clear we should all “let our ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and our ‘no,’s ‘no.” I believe to resign is to honor the intent of the pledge as it relates to the people of my district. Since I can’t in good conscience vote for Donald Trump, and yet have sinfully made a pledge that I would, the best option I see at this time is to resign my position as an Elector.”
