Petition Against the Electoral College Submitted to 

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit

 

New York City: Following the 05/15/2018 oral argument hearing, we submitted petition for en banc rehearing yesterday to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Court.

America is the only developed democracy where the will of the majority of voters has been suppressed in two of five presidential elections since 2000. Think about what a fundamentally different course our country could have taken after 2000 and 2016 had the will of the majority voters prevailed as it should have in a true democracy. In fact, such miscarriage of democracy took place in three other elections, namely 1824, 1876 and 1888. The root cause for such outrageous travesty of democracy? The Electoral College.

Under the Electoral College and based on the 2016 Census Data,

Therefore, in terms of each electoral vote allocated,

The 1787 Constitution counted slaves as only 60% of a person in allocating electoral votes. Therefore, 98% of Americans including all New Yorkers/New Jerseyans/Connecticuters today in 2018 are counted in a manner even worse than a slave 231 years ago by the same measure. 

All residents in our tri-states are Americans subject to the same federal laws and taxes as much as residents in other states, but the value of our votes have been significantly debased and diluted relative to those less populous states. For example, in Fiscal 2014 on a per capita basis:

America, our beloved country, was founded on the basic principle that “all men are created equal” endowed with unalienable rights such as life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. For this fundamental ideal to hold true, the human dignity of each person must be equally respected. And nothing manifests human dignity more than a free person’s sacred vote.

Without “Every Vote Equally Counted”, “One Person One Vote” is meaningless, and presidential elections are nothing but a sham.

No single American should be counted less than a person. No single vote should be counted less than another vote.

We, regardless of state residence, are citizens of United States of America, NOT animals of the fable Animal Farm by George Orwell where some animals are “More Equal” than the others

Spread the word, and come join us to fight for equal voting right, our democracy and the founding ideal of our country! 

 

Dear Friends, as independent ordinary citizens, we have not solicited any contribution in any form from anyone, and will continue so as long as we are able to finance our mission by ourselves.
