Texas Republican elector resigns rather than cast his vote for Trump

A Texas Republican elector has decided to resign rather than cast his vote for president-elect Donald Trump.

Speaking to POLITICO earlier this year, Art Sisneros said he was considering voting against Trump, but has decided that he’d rather resign altogether. 

“If Trump is not qualified and my role, both morally and historically, as an elected official is to vote my conscience, then I can not and will not vote for Donald Trump for President,” Sisneros said in a blog post.

“I believe voting for Trump would bring dishonor to God.”

Trump won the 38 Electoral College votes belonging to Texas. According to The Hill, Cisneros will be replaced with an alternate elector who will vote for Trump on December 19.

Several Democratic electors are also seeking to undermine the Electoral College system by voting for someone other than their state’s chosen nominee.

The group’s leader, Michael Baca of Colorado, is planning to launch a legal battle to unbind electors in the 29 states where they are required by law to vote according to the results in their respective states.

“I will sleep well at night knowing I neither gave in to their demands nor caved to my convictions,” Sisneros said. “I will also mourn the loss of our republic.”

    I have a degree in psychology, which I have got found to be useless. And I are planning on returning to college and getting a Masters in Creative Writing, because I enjoy writing and would love to find out more techniques to make myself a much better writer. I am concerned, however , that this degree will never open up many doors in terms of the job market (just since my psychology degree has failed to do). Any thoughts? Thank you..

    So I learned how to add a Facebook comment box to my Blogger site (with the aid of a code from Fb social plug ins site), but the problem is, the same feedback appear for each of my posts. Is actually like a feature targeted as a comment package for the entire site, but is usually shown at every single post, which is usually stupid! How can you get to have Facebook comment box in Blogger but different remarks for each post?.
