'Hamilton Plan' Gets a Hearing and a Convert

The plan of the self-named Hamilton Electors is getting a hearing in the larger press and public, including now The Washington Post.  The main tenet of Hamilton's that the electors should meet in toto, may or may not happen.  However, the idea that the Electors have the right to do so, or at least communicate with each other and develop a strategy already seems to be settled.

This only bodes well for the democracy.  The latest development is a Texas elector who says he will not vote for Trump.  Salon calls this gaining steam.  I call it at least gaining a little steam.  At least it is a step in the right direction and this is already a far cry from the days immediately after the election in which the ringing (and false) proclamation that Trump was the "President-elect" was off-set by courageous and patriotic young people who had another view and were willing to take to the streets.

Now with Trump spitting out new proposals in haphazard fashion, unnerving friends and foe alike -- both domestic and foreign -- business leaders have begun to voice concern about what they regard as inappropriate meddling in their affairs.  Whether or not this is true, Trump seems to be "transitioning" on the fly.  There is little rhyme or reason to his "madness."

Is this already prelude to a fall?
