If you think as a conservative that a National Popular Vote is the way forward for conservatism to rally or libertarianism to win the day, think again. Just like every other attempt by the left to have third party candidates like Americans Elect, the National Popular Vote group is well funded and funded by Democrats. We have seen in elections around the Country in 2008 and 2010 so called third party candidates who were there to appeal to the so called “middle” and yet each and every time they were Democrats, lefties, progressives. What they attempt to do is to confuse the voter and to ensure the win of the Democrat. It is important that you educate everyone within your sphere of influence that anything that would change the rules of the political game that has worked so well for hundreds of years is done to elect progressives under the banner of Democrats each time it is tried George Soros Should Be Sitting In A Prison Cell, Not Manipulating Americas Elections
NPV’s plan is disarmingly simple: States join an interstate compact that allegedly binds them to allocate their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote. Supporters claim NPV is just a unique way of using the Constitution’s presidential election provisions. In reality, questions remain about the constitutionality and enforceability of the compact. Worse, if it did survive legal challenges, NPV would effectively eliminate an institution that contributes to the political stability of the United States.
Koza and NPV are wrong about the Electoral College, but they’re no dummies, either. They learned much from last November’s elections and this year’s congressional fights over spending. They have apparently concluded that their best chance of success comes with the cooperation of conservatives. Thus, they are working diligently to reconstitute themselves as a Tea Party-friendly organization.
NPV has retained a retinue of Republican lobbyists, including former California state senator Ray Haynes, Michigan Republican national committeeman Saul Anuzis, and former Minnesota state representative Laura Brod. Through such mouthpieces, NPV has pitched its plan to the Republican National Committee, the American Legislative Exchange Council, and conservative think tanks such as the Heartland Institute and the Heritage Foundation.
Despite the immense amounts of money being poured into the effort, NPV’s lobbying efforts have largely failed. Only a few individuals have fallen for the ruse. Perhaps most notoriously, former Senator Fred Thompson recently agreed to serve as one of NPV’s “national co-champions.”
Indeed, the money flowing into NPV tells a very different story about who wants this “reform” and why. Koza—who hit the jackpot when he patented the scratch-off lottery ticket and then convinced states to sell them—has reportedly pledged $12 million to his organization. Koza has given tens of thousands of dollars to various Democratic Party committees and liberal candidates; he was an Al Gore elector in 2000. New York businessman Tom Golisano, who has also pledged millions to NPV, is quick to point out that he is a registered Republican—even though he supported John Kerry and gave a cool $1 million to the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
Really Fred? You seem a much smarter man than that! Always be ready for the left to attempt to deceive you, all of you!
