How About Some More Great Moments In Obnoxious-Lefty Letter Writing?

We never get tired of these, but we can certainly say that the recipients of them have passed that point some time ago.

Garrett Monti, one of the Louisiana electors being deluged with demands from Hillary Clinton supporters that he break his pledge to vote for Donald Trump when the state’s electors meet in Baton Rouge Dec. 19, reported this morning that he’s gotten over 19,000 e-mails containing such pleas – 3,000 of which had come in between noon on Sunday and 9:00 this morning.

And no, they haven’t convinced him.

What are the contents of these demands? Well, we had examples here and here, and another Louisiana elector, Louis Avallone, penned a guest post at the Hayride on Friday offering up a sample of the thousands of messages he’s getting.

But nothing beats a fresh set of whining, right? So let’s go back to the mail bag of another Louisiana elector, Christian Gil, who has graciously forwarded us some of the more laughable Democrat demand e-mails he’s been getting. Gil said this morning he’s almost as popular as Monti – he’d gotten over 17,500 e-mails, and most of them look at least a little like these…

Dear Elector,

My name is Andrea C. Steele, from Minneapolis, MN.

I am distressed by the possible election of Donald Trump to the office of President. This man is not qualified to serve in this position. In addition, the people he plans to have as advisors actively work to remove the basic rights of many segments of the population.

I am a woman and a person of color, and I do not feel safe in a country run by bigoted misogynists. I am an ally of the disabled, LGBTQ, immigrant, and Muslim communities as well as any marginalized community with fewer rights than the elite. Electing Donald Trump would be disastrous for the members of these communities. I respectfully request that you not cast your electoral vote for Donald Trump.

Thank you for your time and consideration, I appreciate and respect the role you serve in our electoral process.

Sincerely,

Andrea C. Steele

If you know Christian, you’ll also know that e-mail is precisely not how to persuade him to vote for somebody other than Trump. Try economic arguments, national security…yeah, never mind. We’ll guess Andrea C. Steele isn’t a particular expert on those topics.

Dear Elector,

My name is Heather Dominguez from Portland Oregon.

In my research I’ve found this information:

http://www.historycentral.com/elections/Electoralcollgewhy.html

The Electoral College was created for two reasons. The first purpose was to create a buffer between population and the selection of a President. The second as part of the structure of the government that gave extra power to the smaller states. The first reason that the founders created the Electoral College is hard to understand today. The founding fathers were afraid of direct election to the Presidency. They feared a tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come to power.

https://www.reference.com/government-politics/purpose-electoral-college-c9f12a8548d434ee#

The electoral college consists of 538 electors, and of those, a candidate needs 270 votes to become president. Although the Founding Fathers wanted the people to have a say, there was concern that a charismatic tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come into power.

http://www.factcheck.org/2008/02/the-reason-for-the-electoral-college/

The reason that the Constitution calls for this extra layer, rather than just providing for the direct election of the president, is that most of the nation’s founders were actually rather afraid of democracy. James Madison worried about what he called “factions,” which he defined as groups of citizens who have a common interest in some proposal that would either violate the rights of other citizens or would harm the nation as a whole.

No Elector has ever been prosecuted for failing to vote as pledged

Thank you for your time and consideration, I appreciate and respect the role you serve in our electoral process.

Sincerely,

Heather Dominguez, US Citizen 45 years old, Caucasian, Bachelor Degree

Heather is Caucasian and has a Bachelor Degree, and she says Christian won’t get prosecuted if he goes faithless as an elector.

Boy is that a strong argument, amirite?

Want more? We have lots more.

Dear Elector,

My name is Colleen Evanson, and I live in Los Angeles, CA.

As you already know our founding fathers created the electoral college in order to safeguard the Republic from giving power to someone unfit for the responsibilities of office. Today, in this election, we have such a case. Not only is Donald Trump inexperienced, he is a threat to the safety and stability of our great nation. Trump has already made clear his positions that both disregard the Constitution and threaten huge segments of our citizenry. As someone who falls into a minority category I am truly scared for the first time in my life that my rights will no longer matter in his administration. Furthermore, the people voted for Hillary Clinton by over a million votes. We ask that you, the electors, honor the majority of Americans and uphold your duties to protect the Republic by preventing Donald Trump from assuming the presidency.

Thank you for your time and consideration, I appreciate and respect the role you serve in our electoral process.

Sincerely,
Colleen Evanson

She’s “truly scared.”

Wonder if she has a dog? She should get a dog.

Dear Elector,

My name is Marc Engle, from Sumter, South Carolina.

The presumed election of Donald Trump to the presidency of the United States is a terrifying prospect. While personally I am unlikely to be affected by his xenophobic, racist, bigoted agenda, there are millions of Americans who will be marginalized by his elevation to the highest office and the inability or unwillingness of the current Republican officials to challenge him. While I realize that becoming a faithless Elector is an extremely difficult choice, you have been given the duty to elect the best possible candidate to the office of the presidency.  Even in the past week Mr. Trump has shown his incompetence to even organize or understand the process of transition. His complete lack of awareness of the magnitude of the job he is attempting to undertake is horrifying and puts the respect and position of the United States in world affairs in jeopardy.

The populous of the United States spoke and by a wide margin rejected Mr. Trump as president. I ask you to please consider the welfare of all Americans, whether black, white, Latino, gray, straight, transgender, Muslim, Christian, atheist, or Jewish and all in between and cast your vote for Hillary Clinton when you are asked to do you sacred duty as an Elector.

Thank you for your time and consideration, I appreciate and respect the role you serve in our electoral process.

Sincerely,
Marc Engle

We’ll just say the last time Democrats from Sumter, South Carolina decided to rebel against the outcome of a presidential election it didn’t go all that well.

Dear Elector,

My name is Davida Napoleon from Ann Arbor, MI

I have several concerns about the election of Donald Trump:

Do we know with certainty that Putin did not help determine the results of our vote? We know there were hacked emails. Was it possible for them to hack ballot machines? If so, is it possible that Trump did not win the electoral vote as well as suffering a large defeat in the popular vote?

Did the people who voted for Trump vote for their own interests or were they manipulated by fake news, some of it generated from other countries, including Russia?

Beyond that, I am concerned that through his actions and words, he’s has demonstrated a willingness to interfere with a free press and possible free assembly. He has expressed extreme prejudice against some American citizens that may interfere with their safety and freedoms in this country. Will we still have a democracy if you cast your votes for Donald Trump? Might this be our last election?

Thank you for your time and consideration, I appreciate and respect the role you serve in our electoral process.

Sincerely,

Davida Napoleon

Vlad Putin Hacked The Ballot Machines You Guys. It’s like parody, only better.

Dear Elector,

My name is Arya Campbell and I’ve lived all over the country.

I understand that you have a job to do and a responsibility for your state.  I hope you realize the enormity of how your vote would impact everyone in the state and the country as a whole.

Trump has repeatedly lied to the voters and made unmanageable promises like restoring the coal mining industry.  I’m sure you have realized this.  You don’t have to vote for him and if there is a penalty that you have to pay, I would be happy to initiate a kickstarter campaign to reimburse you.

PLEASE vote the way you feel is in the best interest of the voters- for Clinton.  She has won the popular vote, so you will be going with the will of the majority.

Thank you for your time and consideration, I appreciate and respect the role you serve in our electoral process.

Sincerely,

Arya Campbell

So she assumes a Trump elector feels a vote for Hillary Clinton is in the best interest of the voters. In other words, she’s admitting she’s a moron.

We can’t top that one, so we’ll leave you it as a grand finale. But there may be more to share.
