PATRIOTS; The United States and Our Constitution Need You NowSubmitted by The Philosopher on Wed, 03/14/2012 - 21:50
While doing a search for information on my State's elector selection process, my heart sunk into a very deep pit of despair. I discovered something which I had never heard of before called, National Popular Vote. This is kind of what it sounds like; DEMOCRACY is coming to these United States.
How it works is thus: each State has electoral college votes, and the person to be elected president needs 270 electoral college votes to win the Presidency. So, what these people are doing is getting Bills passed in the State legislature for National Popular Vote, and when it passes and gets signed into law in each State, that State's electoral college vote gets added to the National Popular Vote total of electors. Once National Popular Vote gets passed in enough States for 270 electors to be assigned to National Popular Vote, then DEMOCRACY is established in these United States. The election of the President will reside solely on the Popular vote. They have already acquired 132 electors or 49% of what they need, but there are Bills in every State which hasn't already passed it. I'm not sure what happens to the electors who's States passed the Bill, if there are not enough electors to establish DEMOCRACY in these United States; but most assuredly it would be preferable to the alternative of us living in a DEMOCRACY.
This needs to be stopped!!!
Check out this link to see if your State has already passed this Bill; if it hasn't please call your legislatures to stop this Bill before it is too late.
EDIT: I'm concerned who might learn of this Bill; I can see the Religious Right wanting to use this as a vehicle to pass an anti-abortion law and an anti-gay marriage law. We all know why the Communist left wants this passed for. We must be careful who we speak about this with, because our efforts may backfire if too many people see this as a way to get their "Utopia" passed into law.
EDIT II: Currently if someone wanted to steal the Presidential election they would have to steal entire State votes; meaning that the popular vote in the individual States would have to change for the perpetrators to be able to collect the electoral college votes. With this system that doesn't need to be the case. They would only have to focus on manipulating the vote count in the major population centers of any number of States, so that the National Popular Vote was swayed in their direction, for them to be able to collect the electoral college votes of all of the States which passed this law.
Then, there is the possibility that if your State passed the Bill, and your State voted for the Republican but the National Popular Vote went to the Democrat, then your electoral votes go to the Democrat even though the Democrat lost in your particular State.
