3. We need to do national commercials or something

tell the potential faithless electors that 75 million of us will organize a 24/7 operation that not one of them will ever be able to leave their homes again for the rest of their lives without a minimum of 100 of us SCREAMING in their faces.

It will be legal what we will do and you will NEVER have peace again.

We will follow you to the store and when you get out to buy your groceries all 100 or more of us will SCREAM at you and this will not stop for the REST of your miserable fucking life.

6. 10 million USD a pop (to get him to 270) would cost 380 million USD (and be completely illegal)

plus some Rethug electors might flip to Biden to stop the madness (not holding my breath on that)

7. SC decision Chiafalo v. Washington 2020 rules that faithless electors could be remove and punished

if they do not follow the popular vote in their state as described in state laws. But this ruling may require a faithless elector law. 32 states have some kind of faithless elector law.

12. Do they not understand that the electors are not just

some random people taken off the street? They are invariably party faithfuls in the first place.

Which is why "faithless electors" are such a big deal, and why they have never affected the actual outcome of the election.
