It seems you have forgotten what an impeachment is.

Checks and balances baby. Welcome to the US of friggin A

A military coup is the absolute last thing that might happen this election. If anything, the various National Guard units will be called to finally put an end to the "protesting" and it'll be some of these same libscum cucks calling for a coup who wind up with a boot on their necks. LMAO

I don't see what impeachment has to do with the electoral college.

You posited that the electoral college could do what they want and that congress could do nothing in response. They could impeach, yes.

Unlikely because the electors are on slates for the party. Not voting would doom the electors from ever holding Republican party positions of power again.

Plus it's unlikely she gets 270 which would throw the vote for Pres to Congress which is Republican controlled.

Yep, especially since ammo should be available and the anti-gun crap pressure from the left will be gone. Everyone bought the weapons, now they can get the ammo.

Yeah, but that has nothing to with the electoral college. The ec can elect whoever they want. Only way Congress would get involved is of no one won, in which case Congress gets to decide.

And i don't think abstaining voters change the math. Could be wrong tho.

If the electors are establishment/insiders they could flip their votes to Clinton and the establishment Republicans wouldn't care. The establishment was ready to elect Hillary just to avoid trump.

Depends on whether or not they think they can wrestle control of the party seat from trump.

SuicideSnowman 11-16-2016 22:26

This is not happening. I don't know why anybody is seriously entertaining the thought of it.

cogzinofa 11-16-2016 22:29

It's amusing to speculate.

Thats not true. If a faithless elector makes it a tie, congress decides the winner.

If a faithless elector or electors swings the outcome, congress decides. If house and senate disagree (unlikely with GOP control of both) it goes back to the SoS of the affected state(s).
