Open Letter to Electoral College Members

Dear Electoral College Members;

I am writing to urge you not to cast your Electoral College vote for Donald Trump.

I’m sure you are getting a LOT of correspondence, and hold little hope that this one letter might tip the balance of your decision. But I feel compelled to write, if there’s even the slimmest hope that this letter, along with the weight of others, will.

This is not about the popular vote. This is not about Trump’s provocation of China, or other foreign policy gaffes. This isn’t even even about Russian interference in our election, no matter how concerning that is.

This is about responsible governance, and basic, common human decency.

Virtually every cabinet choice he has appointed so far, is rabidly against the very agency they have been chosen to head. This is not responsible governance; this is vindictive destruction of governance.

Please step back and look at the totality of what Donald Trump has done before, and since, the election. Mocking disabled reporters, telling numerous outright lies, employing the language of hatred and bigotry, constantly attacking, threatening, bullying, and denigrating almost anyone and anything who criticize him in any manner, including American citizens. He may have even threatened you.

I ask you to search your heart and ask: “Is this really the level of common human decency befitting of the President of the United States?”

I urge you to join me in concluding the answer is, “No.”

Please do not vote for Donald Trump for President of the United States.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

Derrick Fogle
Your Fellow American
