Skip to comments.Scheme to neutralize 36 states' votes advances
Posted on 04/10/2014 12:49:47 AM PDT by Ray76
The National Popular Vote effort, which could see the 14 states with the largest populations decide the presidency, is more than halfway to its goal of legally bypassing the Electoral College established in the Constitution.
Now 10 jurisdictions possessing 136 electoral votes are part of the plan, just over half of the 270 electoral votes needed to bring the National Popular Vote interstate compact into effect.
The NVP effort is fully partnered with a George Soros-funded election group, as WND was first to report.
The group, the Center for Voting and Democracy, received original seed money in 1997 from the Joyce Foundation, a non-profit that boasted President Obama served on its board at the time of the grant. Obama was a board member from July 1994 until December 2002.

Organized, Funded, Subversion.
Rule of mob rather than rule of law.
They are pushing petitons like crazy for this in California.
A lot of Republicans are going for it.
i don’t know when they srarted pushing democracy but when I went to school we were taught that democracy was the worst form of government ever devised.
Might as well just let the UC Berkeley Student Council decide our presidential elections. It would be equally rediculous.
Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.I doubt there is any implication that autocracy is better; although certainly democracy per se is easily manipulated by autocrats and authoritarians.
One of the little problems in our American evolution...is that Census tallies are indicating a withdrawal of residents from popular states like New York. The power players of the 1970s/1980s....saw Florida, New York, Texas and California as essential in getting three of the four, to win the election.
If this trend continues, and the Census of 2020 reveals that six more representative will be removed from states like New York, Michigan, and California....it means that southern states (drawing the new residents) are the NEW power of election voting in America.
You can even take another step...looking at the potential of 2030....sixteen years away, and likely see a very powerful southern base for all Presidential contenders. How can a Soro-type campaign reset the deck to counter that threat? It can’t. Unless New York and California go through some dynamic image rebuild....they are both destined to be some marginal state of status and residency for the public.
We were taught that in school straight out with no reference to any person.
This country isn’t a democracy, never has been and hopefully never will be!!
No, it’s a republic, but it’s getting subverted in a similar way to the Roman Republic.
It was supposed to be a meritocracy, but now it looks like a demeritocracy.
I think Soros already is our president, but Valerie is his proxy.
Highly populated Democrat states will benefit the most.
Smaller states with smaller populations will soon find themselves ignored by federally elected politicians.
If this succeeds it will be worse than obamacare.
But if this happens, why would smaller states want to stay in the Union?
Since elections are currently run by the states (well, except for the confederate states where they are run by the DOJ), we have 50 different definitions of the term "eligible voter".
It wouldn't be "fair" to have different defintions if all of the votes are to be thrown into one big pot. The demands for complete federal control of elections would start as soon as this plan was implemented.
Soros is a maleificent influence that needs to be neutralized
The first lie Obama told as President: “....that I will support and defend the Constitution.....”
Thanks for the ping.
Point it, we still don't have a democracy, we still have a constitutional republic. We should frame this as a questions of individual rights, verse national rights and leave the State's out of it. Let rule of law and the constitution protect individual rights. We have a lot of hope of swinging back towards individual rights (that fits with our vision of an educated, literate and connected society), more so that State's-Rights (which is still borderline feudal, without the negative connotations your get form, say the George Wallace era)
