From Jared Law at The 9.12 Project:

The so-called ‘National Popular Vote’ movement is, indeed, a threat to the electoral college, a wise, inspired system our Founding Fathers set up to help provide yet another firewall to a dictator taking control of America before we had a chance to react. California has already completed the process to flip the bird at the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

Phyllis Schlafly:

A plot is afoot to change our constitutional form of government by ditching the Electoral College. John Anderson, Birch Bayh and John Buchanan, three losers who were defeated in the 1980 Reagan landslide, are scheming to change our Constitution without complying with the amendment process.

Our Constitution requires that a president be elected by a majority of votes in the Electoral College, with each state’s vote weighted based on its population. But some who took an oath to defend our Constitution are plotting to undermine its essential structure by a compact among as few as eleven of the most populous states.

The plan of this Campaign for the National Popular Vote (NPV) is to get states with at least 270 votes in the Electoral College to enact identical bills requiring their own electors to ignore the winner of their state’s election and cast all their state’s ballots for the candidate who the state believes received more popular votes than the other candidates nationwide, even if he fails to win a majority of the popular vote.

Read the whole thing. Then, contact your state and national senators and representatives. If they sneak this through, we will lose the republic.

UPDATE:

Just saw this from Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection:

    This is very, very bad Robot. The progressives need to stop screwing with the Constitution and perverting our government.

    This would be the final nail in the coffin of states rights.

    I’ve been aware of this under-handed scheme for sometime now. I serious doubt it has a chance, but in todays world one just never know. I can see some of the more populas states legislatures enacting such a law, but most states will cringe at giving up this right. The various state houses will decide this and you are right to show concern. These guys are always seeking ways to get around constitutional guarantees.

    Watch what happens over the next 12 months. It will be stunning. And no I don’t have specifics, only 100% certainty of the wicked evil and stupidity of oblabber and the dems.
