How to un-elect Obama & let House of Reps pick the President

I discovered late last night that the original author of the information contained below admitted is was inaccurate. I apologize if you were led here under false pretenses. I have left the original article in place so you can see what all the fuss was about. - Steve
Passing this on...

-----------------------

This election does not get decided until Mid-December when the Electoral College cast their votes.

According to Article II of the U.S. Constitution AND the 12th Amendment - if 1/3rd of the States do not cast their votes in the Electoral College -- then the matter falls onto the House of Representatives to choose the President.
In other words -- if we pressure Congressmen, State Party Officials, and groups such as Tea Party Patriots, Heritage Foundation, etc., to call on RED States to NOT have their Electors cast their vote -- then the House of Reps CAN choose the next President!!!!!

The democrats are stealing this election and it is up to WE, the people, to put the hammer down on their widespread vote-fraud. The founding-fathers gave us the Electoral College for several reasons.
Vote-Fraud is one of those reasons.
But it is up to us to hold tightly to the Constitution. If we don’t – then we are just as guilty as those who would ignore it.

The Constitution can stop the socialist machine in its' tracks.
But it is up to YOU to get on the phone and make some noise.
Please call your State Party Officials, your Congressmen, and any political groups or organizations ASAP.

WE do not elect the President. The Electoral College elects the President. But if enough of them do not cast their vote - then the responsibility falls onto the House of Representatives to choose the next President.

MAKE THE CALLS!!!
If just 17 RED States agreed to NOT cast their votes in the electoral college – then it goes to the House. And if pressured - they just might do it.

We do NOT have to convince ANY democrats – at all.

All we have to do is convince 1/3 of the States to NOT cast their electoral college votes.

Well more than 1/3 of the States did in fact vote as RED States. And they too can see the obvious, wide-spread vote-fraud which has taken place.

So, if the Electors in 17 States which Romney won decided to NOT cast their electoral college votes -- then the electoral college does not meet the requirement as defined in the Constitution. And in such a case, the electoral college is thereby null and void. The matter then goes to the House.

In every State, each political party chooses its' own “electors”.
Then, whichever party wins the popular vote in each State is the party which gets to have its' electors cast their vote in the electoral college.

However, according to the Constitution and the 12th Amendment, in order for the Electoral College to have a quorum - then at least 2/3rds of the States must cast their votes.

As stated in the Constitution and the 12th Amendment:
“A quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States,”

So, if 1/3 of the States (17) do NOT cast their electoral college votes - then it goes to the House of Representatives (not the senate) to elect the next President.

YES!! WE CAN DO THIS!!

GET THE WORD OUT!!
AND MAKE SOME CALLS!!

Update from Glenn's Facebook wall (read the comments!):

Oh By The Way (wink-wink)… Yes. There’s a method to my madness.
Before reading any comments correcting me about the 2/3rds requirement - I do know that the 2/3rds applies to the House; not the States represented in the Electoral College. But hopefully, what I wrote yesterday has motivated some of you to do two things:
1) Begin reading the Constitution.
2) Realize that the Constitution does not ad
dress how to proceed in the event that some of the Electors decide not to cast their votes.

In my opinion, such a situation would expose what is called a “Constitutional Crisis” and would most likely lead someone somewhere to file a court case. And then the Court may very well toss the ball forward to the House.
So… it’s worth a shot.

 

UPDATE 2 from Glenn's Facebook wall:

Now that the general idea about not having some of the Electors cast their vote has garnered some attention, I just have to find some time between work today to write my "Correction:" article.
It will outline what the REAL approach to this idea should be.
The 2/3rds approach may not work. But there is another approach which may work even easier.
And if the right people in the high places get wind of it - they just might run with it.
:)

I hate to say it but this was definitely the wrong way to go about getting people to read and study the Constitution.Speaking directly to the author of this and not the person posting this "piece". 

Will be very hard to have anyone promote or take the author seriously in the future.

Barack Hussein Obama is an illegal alien.

I think this only accomplishes one thing, it gets people reading the Constitution, which is a great thing. 

If Electors don't show up, the courts would order them to, so there really isn't a Constitutional crisis.  Art. II, Sec. 1, Clause 2 mandates that Electors must cast a vote, so not voting is a Constitutional violation that a court order would fix pretty quick.  Since this would be a direct violation of the Constitution, I don't think it would be a particularly brilliant tactic for us to use, seeing as how a huge part of our  ideological framework is built around the founding principles and the Constitution.  If we violate the Constitution in this manner, that would be hypocritical.

So...you get our hopes up, but now we're back to nothing definite... so all the Romney states don't cast their votes...there's still enough electoral votes to elect OBAMA. I need something more definite than this before I share it with my Facebook friends.
