Virginia moves closer to passing National Popular Vote legislation

February 14, 2020

  The National Popular Vote movement has been around for a few years now but it has gained some steam in liberal states since the 2016 election. If you do not know, the National Popular Vote movement is an attempt by liberal states to undermine the electoral college without going through the proper amendment process to change the system.

  The way it works is like this: States vote to award their delegates to whichever candidate wins the popular vote nationally. The pact does not go into effect until enough states have passed NPV legislation to gain a majority of electoral votes.

  We have all seen the disastrous results the last election has had in the once great commonwealth of Virginia and now they are one step closer to passing National Popular Vote legislation. Here is more:

The Democratic-led Virginia House of Delegates has passed legislation that seeks to award the state’s electoral votes to the presidential candidate that wins the national popular vote in an election.

If the legislation is passed by the Senate, where Democrats also hold control, and signed into law by the governor, Virginia would subsequently be entered into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.

“Under the compact, Virginia agrees to award its electoral votes to the presidential ticket that receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia,” a bill summary states. “The compact goes into effect when states cumulatively possessing a majority of the electoral votes have joined the compact.”

  I think it is fairly certain that this bill will eventually be signed into law and when it is the movement will only be 74 electoral votes away from pulling this off. There does not appear to be enough time for this movement to be in effect by the November election but it is getting closer and it is only a matter of time before the Electoral College is the political equivalent of Schrödinger’s cat.

    Priority number one is treating the electorate like mushrooms: feed them shit and keep them in the dark as to the machinations of the left’s incremental takeover of the elections and ultimately the country.

    Showing what it’s like when corrupt and abusive people have wormed their way into power positions.
    This is a bit OT but on the same ‘rotten common core’ vein:
