He can’t bring himself to do it.

In a blog post published over the weekend, Art Sisneros made the case that Trump is unqualified to be president. At the same end, he also realized that there was nothing he could do to prevent him from taking office. With that in mind, and his having pledged to vote for his state’s popular vote winner, Sisneros wrote that it is imperative that he resign as an elector.

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. I believe voting for Trump would bring dishonor to God. The reality is Trump will be our President, no matter what my decision is. Many are furious that I am willing to have this discussion publicly. Personally, I wish more civil officers would be honest about their convictions. Assuming a Trump Presidency is their ultimate goal, they will get that. The problem is, that isn’t what they want. They want a democracy. They will threaten to kill anyone who challenges their power to vote for Skittles for dinner. That is evidence alone to prove that our republic is lost. The shell may remain, but in the hearts of the people and functionality of the system our republic is gone. I also believe that a pledge is a man’s word that he will follow through on something he committed to. God’s Word is clear we should all “let our ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and our ‘no,’s ‘no.”[20] I believe to resign is to honor the intent of the pledge as it relates to the people of my district. Since I can’t in good conscience vote for Donald Trump, and yet have sinfully made a pledge that I would, the best option I see at this time is to resign my position as an Elector.

    Smart man. Now he won’t be one of the most hated people in America when the country fully realizes how horrible the orange one is. I hope all the electors that vote for the orange one get sued for damages for electing him. I also hope they suffer socially for their complicity in this tragedy that is so obviously rushing at us.

    Faithless electors are worthless if they simply resign and allow a faithful elector to take their place…

    Well I believe he is also admitting many electors are having issues supporting the worst person in history to represent America. However, I don’t know why he had to say a vote for rump would dishonor God. I am a spiritual being and I believe in someone much greater than us, however, I am pretty sure she doesn’t give a flip who our President is. However I have it on good authority that her faith in America was restored with our last President, and this election probably put us back a few steps.

      he’s full of sh!t and is a worthless POS. he could have voted for Hillary they are NOT bound in Tx to vote their for their party. and to invoke religion is just a way for him to excuse himself and is a cop op. that’s why i don’t play that religion crap. if his religion is “good” then he would have voted for Hillary because she is better for this country. i can’t STAND repukes.

    A sterling example of “How to take a principled stand and still be a chickenshit.”

    Resign, the Coward’s way out. Just ask Sarah.

    You are not required to vote for him, that is the whole point of being an elector. Resigning solves nothing but soothing your own conscience. reread the rules and vote for the qualified candidate.
