The Progressives, in their determination to neuter the Constitution and negate the protections built therein by the Founding Fathers, are seeking to strip out a vital provision: The Electoral College. As James Madison explains in Federalist #10,
America’s Constitutional Republic with democratic forms is designed to protect
individual rights and minority opinions from a tyranny of the majority, possible
in a “direct democracy”.
The Progressive Left is covertly trying to destroy this central pillar of our Republic under the guise of “Democracy” with an initiative called the “National Popular Vote Compact” or
NPVC. By sidestepping an essential provision of our Constitution, Progressives
seek that which they cannot obtain under the current open election rules, a
lock on the Presidency. And George Soros is providing the funding and the push.
As Sara Noble states:
“They plan to do this by eliminating the role of states, a protection written into our Constitution, and they are doing it covertly while in plain sight. The Progressive initiative is called the “National Popular Vote Compact” aka NPVC and their information is being spread nationwide via the Internet since 2008. They claim it is “true
democracy” but “democracy” to them is interchangeable with “socialism” and worse, as it was in the sixties.
They are moving state by state to bypass the Constitutional amendment process, relegating our SCOTUS to complete insignificance.”
We must act immediately as outlined below. Otherwise, with no public knowledge, no voter input, no public referendums and no input from states which object to this measure, this “Compact” would usurp the role of the states as safeguarded by our Constitution. It transfers
electoral votes to a “national popular vote” thereby usurping the role of the
states as safeguarded by our Constitution.
The electoral vote system protects voting rights by giving each individual state a number of electoral votes representing the level of population. In this way, all states in the Union have a proportionate and representative voice in who becomes President. It doesn’t matter if the state has more land mass than populace, or if more of the people live in rural areas, etc.
If just a few more states pass the NPVC this bill will become law and the Electoral College votes of any state can be given to the winner of the national popular vote in a presidential election, rather than to the winner of that state’s popular vote.
If the electoral system set up by our Founding Fathers is
undermined all our Liberties are at extreme risk and this is exactly what the
Progressive Left wants.
