Hilliary Clinton

Petition Started To Change Electoral College Voting Decision

A man from North Carolina has started a petition to get rid of Trump. His petition will force the electoral college to not vote in favor of Donald Trump on December 19th. Trump won the most electoral votes but Hillary Clinton won the the nation popular vote. Below is the statement provided by the gentlemen who orchestrated the petition:

On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine - which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!

We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states' votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Why?

Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic. 

Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President. 

 Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump "won" is because of the Electoral College.

But the Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?

SHE WON THE POPULAR VOTE.

There is no reason Trump should be President.

"It's the 'People's Will'"

No. She won the popular vote.

"Our system of government under our Constitution says he wins"

No. Our Constitution says the Electors choose.

"Too many states prohibit 'Faithless Electors'"

24 states bind electors. If electors vote against their party, they usually pay a fine. And people get mad. But they can vote however they want and there is no legal means to stop them in most states.

Referring to our police system, Clinton noted that officials are usually uneducated on how to handle mental illnesses on contact. Hence the killings of numerous citizens who suffers from mental illnesses. She went on to say,"We need better police training. I think there should be national standards on the use of legal force. I think one of the big problems we’ve got—and police tell me this—is most police don’t know how to deal with mental health problems. So we need better mental health response."

Charlamagne also brought up the concert music mogul, Jay Z upcoming benefit concert in support of the Clinton campaign in Ohio.

Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Paving the way for others to do the same

It has just been released by the Recording Industry Association of America that Beyoncé will receive her sixth platinum certificate for here newest album, LEMONADE. RIAA tweeted ,”The queen is now 6 for 6 with #RIAAPlatinum or more albums! #LEMONADE is Platinum, @Beyonce! Congratulations!” earlier this morning.

Beyoncé had gotten Platinum certifications from RIAA for every album she has released since she’s started her solo career. Even more astonishing, is that she is one of the very few to go multi-platinum in the past decade.

According to Billboard, Beyoncé’s self titled album was dubbed the second best album of the decade and scored a 85/100 which is the best score any female artist has received thus far.

Also, she is one of the two only black female artists to go double platinum on one of her albums.  For her to have broken the glass ceiling for female artists in this decade, this provides motivation for other women struggling to do the same.

A prime example of some attempting to break the glass ceiling is Hillary Clinton. Yesterday, June 7th,  CNN released that Hillary Clinton won California and secured her spot as the Democratic candidate for this years presidential election. Hillary Clinton is the first woman to ever be nominated as the Democratic candidate in the history of this country. She was also the first woman to run for a Democratic candidacy against Barack Obama. While she didn’t reign successful in winning the popularity over Barack Obama, this was the first time she broke the glass ceiling. This act of heroism and courage has motivated many young woman across America.

All in all, while these two women are in two different areas of business, Beyoncé and Hillary Clinton, are showing that if women put forth the effort and fight against the odds, their hard work will payoff. These firsts for women across America are allowing women to feel more empowered and want to create more first throughout the millennium.
