In order to: Establish Justice. Insure Domestic Tranquility. Provide for the Common Defense. Promote General Welfare. Secure the Blessings of Liberty.
We the People of the United States of America reject Trump.
We ask the Electoral College to vote against Donald Trump. It is their constitutional duty, as our last line of protection, to defend us from a rising authoritarian who has placed a white supremacist in his inner circle.
Trump not only threatens our union, but the stability and safety of our neighbors, friends, and family. He has shown himself to ally himself with racists, sexists, homophobes, nationalists, anti-semites, and Islamophobes.
In the same way that Germany, Italy, and Spain fell into fascism after economic crisis, we are at risk of falling for a “charismatic leader” that has empowered people to act with hate.
Trump lost the popular vote by TWO MILLION people. He does not have a mandate, and is profoundly unfit for the presidency. Trump threatens our very union by maintaining policies that will defund our education system. Moreover, Trump’s international business deals, and refusal to sell his company, violates the constitution. Specialists and academics fear that there was tampering in the election. We must protect democracy.
This is a nation that was founded on liberty. This is a nation that thrives on a multitude of voices. Our nation protects the poor and huddled masses.
Out of many, we are one—united against absolute despotism. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
We will not go quietly into the night.
