On December 19, 2016, the State Electors of Colorado met to cast their electoral votes for the Offices of President and Vice President of the United States, in accordance with the Constitution of the United States and the laws of the State of Colorado. That is pretty much where the story should have ended. But three people decided that they didn’t want to do what they had pledged that they would do.
The State was carried by Hillary Clinton, who, despite some pressure nationwide to manipulate the electoral College, was going to lose, regardless of what the State of Colorado did or did not do. But in an attempt to virtue signal in a meaningless way, three Colorado electors decided that they would not cast their votes – as pledged – to Clinton, but instead to John Kasich, a man who was not even on the ballot.
After the first man cast his vote for Kasich, he was immediately removed as an Elector. The other two, in yet another attempt at virtue signaling, promptly decided to abandon their principled stand against Clinton and actually abide by their pledge to cast their votes in accordance with the wishes of the people of the State of Colorado.
Naturally, this led to a pair of lawsuits claiming that the three had been discriminated against.
Seriously… I am not kidding.
And in one of the longest and weirdest alignment opinions ever issued, the 10th Circuit Court agreed in part and disagreed in part. Once their opinion was issued, the concern over the future of the Electoral College was justifiably increased.
So let’s get right to it… the President says that any Jew who votes Democrat is “disloyal” or misinformed. Jewish leaders are outraged.
Based on my inbox, many of you are in agreement with the President.
So, let’s get to it, shall we?
In the middle of the 3rd take today, a great miracle happened there!
After rearranging the office and moving the desk, we sit down to talk about the idea that different people have different frames of reference. In reality, this is why people have different ideas of how to get where we all say we want to go. But it also a sticking point. If I cannot understand your frame of reference, or you cannot accept mine, then we are in for one bumpy ride and a great deal of disagreement.
