How to Stop Donald Trump

     “Distinguished delegates,” a Republican Party big shot announces into the microphone, “it is an honor to welcome you all to the convention. At this time I ask you all to rise for the Pledge of Allegiance.”

     If you’re like most of them, you turn to the flag, place your hand over your chest and, as you have done since kindergarten, proceed to recite,
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

     “The next order of business is to nominate the presidential electors. The Republican Party, working closely with Donald Trump and David Duke, have selected these people, including Trump’s state campaign manager. They have all promised to vote for Donald Trump for President of the United States and David Duke for Vice President, and we feel we can trust them to do so. We ask you all to join in nominating them. All those in favor, say ‘aye.’”

     Usually these motions carry without controversy, but doing anything to put Donald Trump into the White House would be repugnant to your pledge of allegiance to the republic, so obviously you must vote against the motion, and nominate supporters of Rand Paul and Carly Fiorina. (Why them? Because I said so, that’s why.)

     The delegates have an important duty. They did not sign any pledge saying, “Ours is not to reason why. Ours is just to do or die.” They pledged allegiance to the republic.

     The job of the Canadian Senate is to pass whatever the House of Commons passes. Like royal assent, it is automatic. The Republican state convention is not the Canadian Senate.

     Republican Party big shots are typically bound by rules against taking sides in primaries and such, but the primaries will be over. Besides, most delegates are not party big shots.

     I don’t know how the elector selection process works in some States. However, such activity is highly consistent with the United States Constitution,

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct,.... — U.S. Constitution, Article II section 1.

     Missouri Republicans take note: The Elector candidates will be selected at Republican Conventions, one in each Congressional District on 30 April 2016, and two more at the Republican state convention on 21 May 2016. Get organizing! read more. The county caucuses will elect on 9 April 2016 the delegates to the Congressional district conventions and the state convention. Be sure to tell them to elect delegates who will not vote for Trump supporters for the office of presidential elector. REGISTER!

     If enough States appoint anti-Trump electors, the election will be thrown into the House of Representatives, where each State gets one vote. Maine, New Hampshire and New Jersey have delegations evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, 14 States have majority Democratic delegations and 33 States have majority Republican delegations, so the Republicans would likely win.

     As of this writing, 2 March 2016, Donald Trump has been rejected by a majority of Republicans in every contest. The best he has gotten is 49% in Massachusetts on Super Tuesday, which means 51% voted against him.

     Even if a majority wanted Trump, remember that gang rape is a democracy. Five persons say “yes,” one person says “no,” and the majority rules, electing one of themselves “sheriff,” who has the job of handcuffing the victim. One vote is useless, and so is campaigning. The outvoted person is entitled as a matter of unalienable right to resist the will of the majority, by any necessary means; and unalienable rights, by definition, preempt even the Rule of Law when the two things conflict with each other. Let the Trump supporters be glad we found a non-violent way to stop them.
