Donald Trump’s ascension to the presidency is all but certain. The popular vote, even if it favors Hillary Clinton, is ultimately meaningless and faithless electors. The internet’s favorite thing for the last week, essentially represents a lost cause. For those Americans who oppose Trump, there is no clear path forward. There is, however, one remaining procedural roadblock that could be erected. Senators and representatives from states that voted for Trump could use an arcane law to commandeer electors. It would not be the first time that happened.

Why yes, they certainly can stop Trump, despite all the hurdles he's cleared up until now. Actually I would not be that sad to see them do that. Civil War 2.0 has been a long time coming!!!

"Rule of Law"

... just depending which law you want to rule, so many of them...

I'd start out by repealing all of them... and starting with "Don't do to others that which you wouldn't want them to do to you"... (with religions, too...)

The last hurdle was cleared today when crazy Biden would've gone along with the objection calls from house members in the joint session of congress today. He graveled them down and Trump Electoral College votes were certified by the congress.

Perhaps the Dems have learned that What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Hairy Weed's nuclear option will come back to bite them. If they obstruct the electoral process here, what is to stop a Repub congress from failing to certify a Dem candidate next time? Can't buck the system that worked for them.
