There is a statute that governs the appointment of electoral college “electors” that will come into play if anyone tries to upset the election. While the College is to vote on December 19th, 2016, the actual deadline is 6 days prior or December 13th, 2016. Moreover, if there were an attempt to vote for Hillary despite the fact that the election is based upon state rights since this is the “UNITED STATES” and not one sovereign federal state, this becomes very critical. Even if Hillary won the popular vote, that cannot legally matter.
Let’s say 25 million aliens became citizens in New York City and they all voted for one candidate. To allow that to decide the election and not state by state, destroys the very fabric of what the “united states” was all about converting it to a single federal state. The popular vote cannot be allowed to overrule the states or you will find that the less populous states can be subjugated by the majority. They would no longer have any voice in a democratic process. Yes Hillary has 2 million more votes than Trump. But that is attributed to California alone where her margin was 3.7 million. So if she takes the presidency on popular vote, that means California decides for all and the rest of the country means nothing. Therefore, this would violate equal protection of the law right to the very heart of the design of the USA. If the electoral college anointed Hillary, this would be grounds for separatist movements and I would have to support that because it would be a fundamental restructuring on the nation ending the “united” states and federalizing the nation. The Electoral College thus ensures equal protection of the law for all states and it is the majority of states that matter, not individuals as a whole nationwide. The United States is by no means ONE COUNTRY with just ONE CULTURE. There are at least four separate regional difference just as there are cultural differences in Europe between member states.
The statue that will come into play makes this six day rule very clear. If this is not complied with, we will see this in the Supreme Court.
3 U.S. Code § 5 – Determination of controversy as to appointment of electors
If any State shall have provided, by laws enacted prior to the day fixed for the appointment of the electors, for its final determination of any controversy or contest concerning the appointment of all or any of the electors of such State, by judicial or other methods or procedures, and such determination shall have been made at least six days before the time fixed for the meeting of the electors, such determination made pursuant to such law so existing on said day, and made at least six days prior to said time of meeting of the electors, shall be conclusive, and shall govern in the counting of the electoral votes as provided in the Constitution, and as hereinafter regulated, so far as the ascertainment of the electors appointed by such State is concerned.
