    The Constitution Allows America To Choose Colin Powell for President On January6

    Crazy!!  Even though he lied us into war (and other dastardly deeds), this might be the least bad outcome!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/richard-greene/the-constitution-allows-a_b_13990106.html

    snip:

    Step One: One Congressperson and one Senator challenge the results of The Electoral College. (As of January 5 at 5:20 pm, this author has just received confirmation that at least one Member of The House of Representatives WILL be challenging the results and that that Member is actively recruiting a corresponding Member from The United States Senate) .
    Step Two: Each challenged vote is debated and ruled to be either valid or invalid by both houses of Congress
    Step Three: If less than 270 of the 304 electoral votes for Donald Trump survive scrutiny by Congress, Donald Trump is not formally elected by The Electoral College and then the entire matter goes to The House of Representatives to choose.
    Step Four:  The House chooses, according to The 12th Amendment, amongst the top 3 electoral vote getters. Because of The Hamilton Elector campaign encouraging electors of both parties to “vote their conscience” 7 electors actually did.  As a result, here was the vote:
    Donald Trump:  304
    Hillary Clinton:  227
    Colin Powell:       3
    John Kasich:       1
    Bernie Sanders:  1
    Ron Paul:            1
    Faith Spotted Eagle  1

    More of the same. Can we take four more years of *?

    Life's too short to vote for immoral warmongers.

      4. You're right!

      One of the only good things about Trump’s election is that everyone is scrutinizing his every word/action, whereas if Powell were appointed president, everyone would breathe a sigh of relief and go back to not paying one damn bit of attention.

        5. We ought to be scrutinizing every word and action

        Of the republican congress. And democrats should take note. See how fast the republicans are moving to take advantage of their majority? Look at the damage they appear ready to do right out of the gate. Meanwhile we’re distracted watching outrageous Trump and democrats like Schumer are saying they’ll block Supreme Court nominees who present a danger to roe vs. wade. Um, yay. How about blocking them all? How about blocking everything? Yknow just as republicans have done for eight long years.

        6. Exactly.

        Trump=Powell.  They are both known to lie when pushed yo the corner.  As we know, people die when people lie!

    7. I suspect that one thing we can be sure of is that the R congress will never

    elect another black man no matter how had their guy is. They have a pretty bigoted history and many of them fought Obama just because he was black.

    I think we are stuck with Trump until we can find someone on our side that can win.
