How the Electoral College Can Save America from Trump

Lawrence Lessig is the best writer on the subject of the Electoral College I have run across on line.  This well-reasoned article is a very clear and useful essay on what the Electors can and should do to stop the worst aspects of fascism from entering the White House.

Our current situation is a national emergency.  Today's New York Times article on Russian interference in the U.S. election process demonstrates this amply.  It is past time to take this matter very seriously.

We can start by forwarding the article below to friends and family.  Then we can take to heart the admonition to create an energy from the bottom up, so our leaders will be forced to do the right thing.  Let us be non-violent, but let us act with all due dispatch.
