The chicanery being played against the American people by lunatics working so hard for their own destruction is cranking up:
"While we are paying attention to the OWS and to Republican debates where the candidates annihilate each other, the Progressives have a plan to keep themselves in power forever, starting in 2012.
"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. As per the Communist Manifesto, “popularism” is the means of “democracy.” It achieves a monopoly of democratic parties for the worldwide Socialist order.
"Their goal is to have all the required 270 Electoral Votes needed for a “winner” given to the candidate who wins the largest number of popular votes nationally – no matter how small the win margin and no difference how many states voted to oppose him.
"Once enough states have passed it to reach the 270 Electoral Votes, the NPVC goes into effect for the next and all Presidential elections. This bill currently has passed enough state houses to reach 160 EV’s out of the 270 needed. It won't matter how strongly some states are against it. NPVC has passed 1 of the 2 required chambers in more than 30 other states.
"This could become the Law of the Land, trashing our Constitution and the rights of individual states and their residents. Are you surprised given Obama’s penchant for suing states? Plus, we'd never get rid of this thing.
"The electoral college system gives all states representation in our government, so that ranchers in Wyoming, and elite et al in NYC have a say in who becomes President."
Not surprising if you understand the bigger picture. This isn't just about putting the same ineligible candidate back in the White House. It's about the continuing effort to subvert our legal form of government (a constitutional republic) and force democracy (mob rule) to finish us off. Please note at the bottom of the column above (Eliminating EC Eliminates States Rights) the list of states who have already sold out and ones considering giving us the shaft.
Some states even believe they can get away with amending the U.S. Constitution:
"The Electoral College could be inching closer to extermination as California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Monday that would award the state's 55 electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote."
Would you expect anything less from a cocaine addled old hippie the stupid people of California voted back into office? Governor Moonbeam served before his current term (1975–83), but apparently the voters have short memories.
"Each state shall appoint, in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a number of electors, equal to the whole number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or person holding an office of trust or profit under the United States, shall be appointed an elector.
"The electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by ballot for two persons, of whom one at least shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves. And they shall make a list of all the persons voted for, and of the number of votes for each; which list they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates, and the votes shall then be counted. The person having the greatest number of votes shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such majority, and have an equal number of votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately choose by ballot one of them for President; and if no person have a majority, then from the five highest on the list the said House shall in like manner choose the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by States, the representation from each state having one vote; A quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. In every case, after the choice of the President, the person having the greatest number of votes of the electors shall be the Vice President. But if there should remain two or more who have equal votes, the Senate shall choose from them by ballot the Vice President.
"The Congress may determine the time of choosing the electors, and the day on which they shall give their votes; which day shall be the same throughout the United States."
Neither of the above will survive a court challenge even with the current U.S. Supreme Court or even the Ninth Silly Circuit Court of Appeals. Let me tell you why.
Remember the effort (I supported in spirit, but knew it would be overturned by the courts and rightfully so) back in 1994 to impose term limits on Congress by the states? Many passed such bills, but it was shot down by the U.S. Supreme Court:
SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
Nos. 93-1456 and 93-1828
TERM LIMITS, INC., et al., PETITIONERS 93-1456 v. RAY THORNTON et al.
WINSTON BRYANT, ATTORNEY GENERAL OF ARKANSAS, PETITIONER 93-1828 on writs
of certiorari to the supreme court of arkansas
[May 22, 1995]
"Before addressing these arguments, we find it appropriate to take note of the striking unanimity among the courts that have considered the issue. None of the overwhelming array of briefs submitted by the parties and amici has called to our attention even a single case in which a state court or federal court has approved of a State's addition of qualifications for a member of Congress. To the contrary, an impressive number of courts have determined that States lack the authority to add qualifications."
The states attempted to amend the U.S. Constitution without a constitutional amendment.
Many of you might recall my coverage regarding the recall of Sen. Robert Menendez. I predicted the plaintiffs would lose and I was right:
I very highly recommend a book that should be required reading in all classrooms. It's only 100 pages and it's also available in E Book:
There is going to be a huge war to keep Obama/Soetoro/Dunham or whatever his real name is off the ballot for 2012. I believe this time around it will happen, but, as they say: Never put all your eggs in one basket and we must protect the Constitution from predators like those behind the so called National Popular Vote Compact. Here's another article on it.

Obviously the so-called “National Popular Vote Compact” must be stopped either by the state houses or by more lawsuits.
I know you're going to groan, but please print out this column and send it to your state rep and senator. Attach it with a short snail mail letter (forget email) that gets put on their desk at a district office. Many states are out of session, so sending a letter to the state capitol just gets lost in the shuffle. I've also found that staff members at district offices at the state level are usually very nice and want to take the time to understand your call or letter. Please make time to write that letter because every one will count.
