Bypassing the US Constitution

And people thought that Demonrats were simply going to lose steam, or that they were worse at corruption thus a better bet than Republicans in 2008.

Useful idiots, that’s what.

Bill Whittle’s thoughts on Trifecta.

The Left has all this planned out for Obama’s re-election bid. You weren’t taught right if you thought votes were what Democrats placed prime importance in.


The bill, which passed on a 28-to-9 vote, now heads to Democratic Governor Deval Patrick’s desk. The governor has said in the past that he supports the bill, said his spokeswoman Kim Haberlin.

Under the law, which was enacted by the House last week, all 12 of the state’s electoral votes would be awarded to the candidate who receives the most votes nationally.

Supporters are campaigning, state by state, to get such bills enacted. Once states accounting for a majority of the electoral votes (or 270 of 538) have enacted the laws, the candidate winning the most votes nationally would be assured a majority of Electoral College votes. That would hold true no matter how the other states vote and how their electoral votes are distributed.

Illinois, New Jersey, Hawaii, Maryland, and Washington have already approved the legislation, according to the National Popular Vote campaign’s website. The new system would only go into effect once a sufficient number of states have passed laws that would make it work.

Forget Article V of the Constitution. They don’t need 3/4ths to call a convention to amend the Constitution. They have much better ways to change it. More Democrat ways.

    It seems that you have forgotten Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of these the United States.
