  •  National Popular Vote Compact (0+ / 0-)

    is an idiot's move.

    Imagine a scenario where a Democrat wins the pop. vote and Florida goes Republican, but has signed onto the compact. A Republican legislature and governor would hesitate for about a tenth of a second before flaking out of the deal -- and what penalty do we imagine they could face? The constitution clearly says the electors are named by the legislature in a manner they choose.

    This naive idea is an honor system that relies on people acting in good faith and playing fair and abiding by previous agreements. Am I the only one here who realizes that specifically excludes modern Republicans?


    I can't believe our election is being decided by people who can't tell the difference between republicans and democrats...that's like letting a dog choose what color to paint your house.
