The Wolf in Sheep’s-Clothing is a Very Real Threat

In the King James Version of the Bible, the text of Matthew 7:15 reads: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s-clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. That is the warning you can also take about the anti-Electoral College movement under the innocuous name of The National Popular Vote. The Electoral College is there for a purpose that was insight-fully foreseen by the Founding Fathers. That is why the United States is a Republic and not a democracy. Without it, California and New York would control all national politics. We would always have what they elect and you can see what a mess the liberals have made of their States.

Each has approved NPV’s interstate compact, agreeing to pledge its presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote instead of the state’s popular vote. The compact goes into effect only after a critical mass of states approves it. The signatory states so far control 172 electoral votes among them, meaning that NPV needs only 98 more electoral votes to take effect.

The NPV compact is an attempted end run around Article V of the Constitution, effectively eliminating the Electoral College without the bother of a constitutional amendment. That end run is much easier than the formal constitutional amendment process, which would require the support of 38 states……
