Schemes, Secrecy and Conspiratorial Plots

   
     Did you know that there is a movement to legally bypass the Electoral College in the voting process?  Neither did I, because it is silently and stealthily being accomplished behind the scenes and without any mention by the media.  In fact, this campaign is nearly 61% of the way towards accomplishing its goal.
     According to World Net Daily, the National Popular Vote (or NPV bill) is gaining steam as it seeks to obtain the consent of the majority of the 538 votes in the Electoral College.  If successful, this scheme would award electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote instead of the winner of the popular vote in each state.
     Here's how it is happening:  The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) is an agreement among various U.S. states and the District of Columbia to replace their current rules regarding the apportionment of presidential electors with rules guaranteeing the election of the candidate with the most popular votes in all fifty states and the District of Columbia. Coming in the form of an interstate compact, the agreement goes into effect once it is law in states, that together, have an absolute majority of votes (at least 270) in the Electoral College.
     And here's how it gets interesting:  According to Wikipedia, an interstate compact is an agreement between two or more states of the United States of America. Article I, Section 10 of the United States Constitution provides that "no state shall enter into an agreement or compact with another state" without the consent of Congress. 
     Consent can be obtained in one of three ways. First, there can be a model compact and Congress can grant automatic approval for any state wishing to join it, such as the Driver License Compact. Second, states can submit a compact to Congress prior to entering into the compact. Third, states can agree to a compact then submit it to Congress for approval, which, if it does so, causes it to come into effect.
     Frequently, these agreements create a new governmental agency which is responsible for administering or improving some shared resource such as a seaport or public transportation infrastructure. In some cases, a compact serves simply as a coordination mechanism between independent authorities in the member states.
     Now, I don't know about you, but it seems as if some how, some way, Congress has to give their consent if it is an interstate compact.  Yet it is implied that once the National Popular Vote bill becomes law in the states, it goes into effect.  So, I'll just admit it ... I'm confused.  But I have no doubt that this is all carefully planned and there is a mechanism to bypass Congress as well as the Electoral College.
     Last month, New York became the 11th state to enact the plan, joining Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Washington, Vermont, California and Rhode Island. The District of Columbia also has joined the pact.
     Notice anything distinctive, or the common denominator, among this group of states?  They are all states that vote primarily Democratic in the national elections.  So what do they have to gain by implementing the NPV?  The plan simply requires that enough states join through votes in their legislatures along with gubernatorial approval, and the effort would change the way Americans elect the president, without amending the U.S. Constitution.  Remember, it takes two-thirds of both the House and Senate to pass a constitutional amendment to repeal the Electoral College.  That would be nearly impossible; it would never receive bipartisan support.
     But the NPV minimizes the number of states that would need to agree, thereby circumventing the constitutional amendment process.  It's a brilliant plan!  You see, once enough states agree to allot their  electoral votes to the national popular vote winner, the Electoral College becomes irrelevant.
     I don't suppose you'd be surprised to discover that the National Popular Vote group is fully partnered with the Center for Voting and Democracy, or that this group is funded by George Soros, would you?  Didn't think so.  Here's the beauty of the scheme ... only 14 states – those with the largest populations – could decide the presidency for voters in all 50 states.  Which is exactly why our Founding Fathers sought to find a balance between electing our President by popular vote, and electing him by the vote of Congress.  Unlike today, they wanted elections to be fair and equitable.  They saw the danger in allowing the larger states to have more power than the smaller states.
     Even John F. Kennedy rejected this idea when he said, “Direct election would break down the federal system under which states entered the union; which provides a system of checks and balances to ensure that no area or group shall obtain too much power.”  I guess that says it all ... and it's all about power ... anyway they can get it.
     Can this plot be stopped?  I honestly don't know.  I guess if the citizenry of each state knew where their governor stood on this matter, we'd have a better idea if this back-door scheme will come to fruition.  But do not doubt that this is the ultimate design, and why the back room powers have been so intent on changing states like Texas from red to blue.  Couple this plot with voter fraud and I don't see how they can be stopped.  If God is the true determiner of who has authority over us, as the book of Romans tells us, then He is surely using them for judgment against our sinful ways.  I cannot disagree that we deserve it.  I pray that He hears the voices of we the people, who repent and ask His forgiveness.  Otherwise, our darkest hour is yet to come.

  1. National Popular Vote would not be direct election of the President.

    The U.S. Constitution says "Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors . . ." The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly characterized the authority of the state legislatures over the manner of awarding their electoral votes as "plenary" and "exclusive."

    The National Popular Vote bill would replace state winner-take-all laws that award all of a state’s electoral votes to the candidate who get the most popular votes in each separate state (not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, but later enacted by 48 states).

    The bill preserves the constitutionally mandated Electoral College and state control of elections. It ensures that every voter is equal, every voter will matter, in every state, in every presidential election, and the candidate with the most votes wins, as in virtually every other election in the country.

    Under National Popular Vote, every voter, everywhere, would be politically relevant and equal in every presidential election. Every vote would be included in the state counts and national count.

    The bill would take effect when enacted by states with a majority of Electoral College votes—that is, enough to elect a President (270 of 538). The candidate receiving the most popular votes from all 50 states (and DC) would get all the 270+ electoral votes of the enacting states.

    The presidential election system, using the 48 state winner-take-all method or district winner method of awarding electoral votes, that we have today was not designed, anticipated, or favored by the Founders. It is the product of decades of change precipitated by the emergence of political parties and enactment by 48 states of winner-take-all laws, not mentioned, much less endorsed, in the Constitution.

    The bill uses the power given to each state by the Founders in the Constitution to change how they award their electoral votes for President. States can, and have, changed their method of awarding electoral votes over the years. Historically, major changes in the method of electing the President, including ending the requirement that only men who owned substantial property could vote and 48 current state-by-state winner-take-all laws, have come about by state legislative action.

    1. I just wish that I could trust how our votes are counted. Sadly, I do not. The fact that, as of this date, not one single incumbent has been unseated in the nationwide primaries -- despite the fact that the current Congress is experiencing its lowest ratings in decades -- proves to me that voters do not matter. No matter how this new bill is presented, I am seriously close to losing faith in the credibility of our election process.

  2. Belle,
    I suggest you check out these links (pay close attention to the comments sections):
    ( http://conservatives4palin.com/2014/02/nation-lets-encourage-voter-fraud-scrap-electoral-college.html )

    ( http://www.talkradionews.com/opinion/2014/02/19/low-information-voters-dominate-future-elections.html )

    ( http://townhall.com/columnists/hankadler/2014/05/03/breaking-the-constitution--national-popular-vote-interstate-compact-n1832757/page/full ) Interestingly, at this link, it would appear toto is woman "susan3031".

    IMO, I think they're both either bots (or paid shills).

    For more fun, simply copy/paste any section of our friend "toto"'s brilliant response above, into your favorite search engine (I used the paragraph starting with "the bill preserves"....)

    Keep up the good articles Belle.

    1. You have made a wise assumption, my friend. I received a follow-up response from "toto" to my comment, which proceeded to lambast me for even daring to think that election fraud exists. He/she also attempted to bully me by calling my response stupid and less flattering adjectives. It was so apparent that it is was an attempt to bait me, and I don't respond to trolls. That's the nice thing about having control over your comments. You can just hit "delete".

  3. People misunderstand the purpose of the Electoral College. It was designed to balance the popular votes with geographic votes. It was necessary then to keep populated states from lording over less populated ones. It is even more necessary now that Presidents can depopulate large swaths of states by declaring lands to be national monuments, parks, or preserves. If there is no geographic influence in presidential elections, think of the potential consequences. They are frightening to those of us who wish to pursue the freedom and self-reliance of a more rural lifestyle.

    1. This is why I believe there is such a huge effort to turn red states like Texas into blue states. If you can get the majority of the popular vote, you can control the election. I don't trust this whole process!

  4. Kudos to anonymous. I did copy and paste 'toto's remarks and found that indeed, 'toto' is a little dog.
