There are a lot of nuts and ignorant people out in the USA, but the people writing these stories and these goofballs trying to undo democracy are at the top(or bottom) of the list. Hopefully, someday they will get the mental assistance they desperately need or be institutionalized so they do hurt themselves or any one else.

Jack, did you need the word "not" in your last sentence?

I'm sure our electors are all being called racists, misogynists, and homophones if they don't change their vote.

Lobotomust, who will super bowl & college national championship?

I am sure the request are legitimate asking ArKansas to switch to HRC. Probably done to get a rise out of people to fill space in ADG..

Kinda like asking southern Baptist to not say Jews & Catholics are going to HE'LL. Never will happen so stupid to ask.

To everyone that is unhappy with the election outcome, or even other situations in your life...don't hang around online soapboxing! Get out there and put some time & energy into your plans, causes, beliefs, ideas, life. YOU CAN DO IT !

The megalomaniacal Dems would likely have no reservations about subverting the electoral process in such a manner if they thought they could get by with it. Their arrogant, self=righteous lust for control over those they view as "deplorables" has deluded them into believing that they have moral justification to "trump" the rule of law in order to achieve their treacherous ends.

I wish they would change their votes, but I already knew they wouldn't before reading this article. They're not legally bound to Trump, but the GOP picked them precisely because they're the most loyal; they would also go against the majority of Arkansas voters who elected them to vote for Trump. Not to mention our six electors wouldn't be enough to change the outcome by themselves.

As before, and now, the people have spoken.
