Just putting this out there till the next article on the disaster that is the NPV.
California decided it was going to allow ALL of the illegal aliens to vote? What if they encouraged it? What if they Required all election precincts to accept any ballots cast by anyone who had identification or not?
What if it added a couple million to the voter rolls? What if that was the ‘popular vote’ difference and forced states who are bound by the NPV to cast for those with the greater vote total number? Therein lies the rub.
Legislators in Michigan who would support such fraud should be tarred and feathered for such malfeasance.
Wayne Schmidt more likely to withdraw sponsorship of SB1117?
Nothing is guaranteed folks.
State Senator Wayne Schmidt may not withdraw his sponsorship of SB1117, a bill that if ultimately effected, would have made it possible for Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 election. He may not change his mind after looking at the reality of what is being peddled to GOP lawmakers just in time to create dissension within the party.
But Wayne Schmidt does have folks in Grand Traverse County wondering what he was thinking. He has fellow party members raising eyebrows, and asking “why on earth ..?” And Wayne has a decent sense of political measure, so..
The Grand Traverse County Republican party executive committee today offered up and passed unanimously, a “simple resolution in opposition to the National Popular Vote, with notices to be sent to our representatives.”
This is Wayne’s ‘home team.’ These are the folks who must rally the troops, and the response to this particular NPV effort has seriously damaged the volunteer hours and interest.
It was an easy vote.
We encourage other county parties to follow suit and remind our GOP legislators that NPV is a bad enough idea, but bringing it out when the debate alone will have the worst possible effect on the GOP ground game, is really the true intent of it’s lobbyists.
Between bad proposals, and the best intentions the timing couldn't be worse.
Lobbyists know that our legislators have blind spots.
Its not that all legislators are blind, ignorant, foolish, or even downright incompetent. Just most of them falling into one or more of those categories.
Unfortunately, some have gone back to the trough of stupid ideas a little too often. Enough in fact, that they don’t even see the real reasons they are suddenly inundated with far reaching demands for change emanating from the pits of hell masquerading as fixes that are long overdue.
The convention of states (COS), and National Popular Vote (NPV) are two such changes that if successful, could threaten our very Republic. The COS, in a way that opens the doors to quite literally writing out the very protections enshrined in our constitution. The NPV, as a means to enable mob rule, and permanently entrench those who can then control media and other information sources.
