Nevada is set to become the 15th state to pass the National Popular vote to eliminate the historical Electoral College and relegate rural states to the back-burner of American politics.
Let’s hear it for mob rule.
Big city mob rule only, the rest of us won’t count.
As soon as Nevada’s Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak signs their bill into law, the movement will have 195 electoral votes — still short of the total 270 electoral votes needed to kick their plan into action.
Ironically, if they just counted the popular vote of states like California, New York, New Jersey and Illinois already in this interstate compact, we probably would have already lost our presidential voting power by now.
See? That’s how it will work.
The only good new is, it does not appear Democrats will get enough states passed in time to steal the 2020 election.
However, once enough states equaling 270 electoral votes join the compact, those electoral votes go “poof!” in presidential elections, and our votes will be awarded to whoever wins the most individual votes nationwide.
Kind of like a sideways democracy, which our forefathers fought desperately to save us from by ensuring small and less populated states were not reduced to serfdom under larger states, and shared equal votes.
