By sidestepping an essential provision of the United States Constitution Progressives, led by über liberal George Soros, seek that which they cannot obtain under the current open election rules, a lock on the Presidency.
The Center for Voting and Democracy, a Soros-funded election group, received seed money from the Joyce Foundation. The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer was on the board from July 1994 until December 2002.
The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact would mandate that once states totaling 270 electoral votes join the compact that all the states give their electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote nullifying the Electoral College without a constitutional amendment.
On April 15th, New York’s Gov. Cuomo signed on to the bill adding the state to a list of others joining the stealth movement. The other jurisdictions include California, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.
From Cuomo’s official statement upon signing the bill:
”I am particularly heartened to sign this legislation as it embodies both in process and substance the Empire State’s tradition as a national progressive leader,” Gov. Cuomo said of the news. “I am pleased to add New York to the growing list of states who have joined together to make this reform a reality.”
This bill is an end run around the regular constitutional amending process. Instead of requiring a two-thirds majority of each house of Congress and three-quarters of the states, this proposal would take effect when a simple majority approves it.
And the Electoral College system, which has been part of our representative republic, will be modified and converted to a pure democracy.
This proposal would encourage even more voter fraud in more populated, left-leaning states; and provide more incentive to allow illegal immigrants to vote.
It would effectively end “one man, one vote” and dispatch our republic to mob rule.
