Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election has evolved into a genuine and unprecedented national crisis. Over the years, the Electoral College has deteriorated into a quaint rubber-stamp of each state’s elector outcome. Some states have even passed laws that prohibit electors from changing their votes. However, this is patently un-Constitutional and not the intent of The Founders. Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers that the intent was for the Electoral College to be a check on exactly the situation we are facing. Meanwhile, a group of EC electors has demanded that the CIA share with the Electoral College its evidence of Russian interference in the election.
Christoper Suprun, a Texas elector, a Republican, and a 9/11 first responder, declared in an electrifying editorial in the New York Times last week that he will not vote for Donald Trump. We all need to read Suprun’s impassioned patriotic words.
The CIA revelation on October 7th that the Russian hacking was directed by the Kremlin, has been followed by last week’s confirmation from the CIA that the motive was not only destabilization but to aid the election of Donald Trump. Obama has called for his own Presidential report before January 20th. Many members of Congress have already been shown the CIA evidence. Congress is now in bipartisan agreement that it requires a full-scale investigation. Some are already calling for a national “investigative commission” like those for the Kennedy assassination and the 9/11 attacks. All of this, and the Electoral College issue, requires our fullest attention.

How to write to the Electoral College
REBLOGGED FROM DIRECTELECTION.ORG
WELCOME TO DIRECTELECTION.ORG!
The purpose of this site is to help you send your own signed postal letters to the members of the Electoral College from states won by Donald Trump to ask them, respectfully, not to vote for Trump.
The electors have already received a ton of e-mail and news attention, but a personal letter means a lot more. A single good old-fashioned, voter-to-voter personal letter is probably worth a thousand e-mails.
How realistic is it that we can politely convince enough electors to abandon Trump (and choose the popular-vote winner Hillary Clinton instead)? Admittedly, the chances are slim, but this is our only shot! Nothing else at this point, other than swaying the electors, can stop Trump from becoming president. Let’s not throw away our shot!
HOW IT WORKS
I’ve prepared a ready-to-print, customizable mail-merge in Microsoft Word and a set of ready-to-print Avery Standard 5160 labels for envelopes. Just download, add your name and address (customize more if you want), print, sign, put them in envelopes, address the envelopes, apply stamps, and mail.
So far, I have addresses for about 260 Trump-pledged electors. Total cost of postage if you mail them all: $122. Estimated time to print, sign, stamp them all: just under two hours.
If that’s too much for you, fear not. I’ve also broken it down by state. Just download the states whose electors you care the most about and write to those. (May I suggest Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Ohio?)
That’s it. Each document has an identical instruction sheet for easy execution. And the best thing is, if you don’t like the letter I wrote, you can change it however you like. This is your letter to the electors.
But remember: The Electoral College will cast its official votes on December 19, so we’ve got to act fast. The electors are elected officials. We voted for them when we voted for president in our various states. It is right that they hear from us.
I’m Jeff Strabone, registered Democrat from New York. I’m a U.S. citizen and voter who is terrified by the prospect of Donald Trump becoming president. He lost the popular vote and is unfit to be our president. If the electors take their responsibility seriously, I believe they’re obligated to block Trump. That is why I’m asking you to join me in sending polite, respectful letters asking them to do so.
