Until President Trump was elected, the GOP had become the party of pacifists allowing progressives to take away everything that our country has stood for.
Well, things have changed and the fight has returned to millions who have decided to fight back, typically peaceably.
The November 3rd elections started out as typical, with Trump doing well in Florida and Ohio, and was leading in the swing states, except for Arizona. As we have reported, through late-night voting shenanigans, massive mail-in voting without ID requirements, and voting machine manipulations, the election was stolen, according to 76 million Americans who voted for Trump.
President Trump’s legal team and other advocates filed hundreds of lawsuits hoping to get courts to allow them to present evidence of election fraud, leading the judges to make things right by throwing out unqualified ballots.
Well, the courts have not wanted to get involved and thus the election is trending towards a Joe Biden victory. Monday was the date set for all state Electors’ to formally vote for the presidential candidate who received the popular vote.
As the Electors started to vote, three state electors just shook up the apple cart. Republican electors in Nevada have cast ballots for Donald J. Trump and declared him the winner of six electoral votes.
Electors in Georgia and Pennsylvania also cast procedural ballots for Trump while the states continue to be contested. There are now dueling electors in all three states.
So what happens now?
Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes. The Vice President, as President of the Senate, presides over the count and announces the results of the Electoral College vote. The President of the Senate then declares which persons, if any, have been elected President and Vice President of the United States.
If any objections to the electoral votes are made, they must be submitted in writing and be signed by at least one member of the House and one Senator. If objections are presented, the House and Senate withdraw to their respective chambers to consider the merits of the objection(s) under procedures set out in Federal law.
If both chambers agree to accept the protests and throw out the votes for the disputed states and neither one of the Presidential candidate wins at least 270 electoral votes (a majority of the 538 available votes), under the 12th Amendment to the Constitution the House of Representatives decides the Presidential election.
If the Houses and Senate vote to reject the challenges allowing the votes to stand or if the chambers split, the votes sent by the states get adopted.
If necessary, the House would elect the President by majority vote, choosing from among the three candidates who received the greatest number of electoral votes. The vote would be taken by State, with each State having one vote.
If no Vice Presidential candidate wins at least 270 electoral votes (a majority or the 538 available votes), under the 12th Amendment the Senate elects the Vice President. If necessary, the Senate would elect the Vice President by majority vote, choosing between the two candidates who received the greatest number of electoral votes. Each Senator would have one vote.
