There is a growing obsession in the statehouses of deep blue (and deeply White) states with the perceived deficiencies of the electoral college. States like Maine want to subsume their electoral votes into the national popular vote, mostly to stick it to FreeWhites.
Bill would give away Maine’s electoral college votes to winner of national popular vote
In an attempt to circumvent the electoral college, a group of liberal lawmakers, led by Rep. Deane Rykerson (D-Kittery), are sponsoring a bill (L.D. 418) that would enter an agreement with other states to give away Maine’s four electoral college votes to the candidate that wins the most votes across the other 49 states, plus Maine.
The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, as it is called, has become law in 12 “states” that control a total of 170 electoral college votes so far, according to the website of the group pushing the issue nationally.
The proposal would mathematically reduce the strength of Maine’s vote in the Presidential election by around 20 percent if calculated based upon the 2018 results.
This is a quicker route to displacing the White male vote than importing illegal aliens by the millions into Maine. Now Maine can exploit the swarth vote from afar!
Why spend decades altering the size, shape, color, and texture of your lily White state’s demography to guarantee its electoral haul enriches bluetopia prospects when you can just toss your electoral votes into the popular vote bin which is skewed by the votes of illegals and concentrations of POCs in a few coastal shitlibopolises?
Nothing says “American republicanism” like drowning Maine’s political voice in a tidal wave of Central Americans living 3,000 miles away.
Opponents of the national popular vote effort point out that small states benefit from the electoral college by requiring Presidential candidates to travel across many states, learning about and addressing the concerns of a diverse cross section of Americans.
They say a switch to the national popular vote would encourage Presidential candidates to camp out in the larger states, such as California and New York, which produce tens of millions of votes in a Presidential election, instead of smaller states which might produce only 250,000 to 750,000.
In other words, a Hillary Clinton campaign on steroids.
The proposal that will go before the Maine Legislature is curious in that it sets up a scenario where a candidate could win only a few states, but with large enough margins of victory in the popular vote that they won the national popular vote, thereby forcing a majority of states that voted against that candidate to award them the electoral votes they need to become President.
Imagine California and the Acela Corridor controlling the political destiny of the rest of America. Could there be a more likely prelude to Civil War 2?
Advocates for national popular vote argue that it is a more direct democratic method of electing the President.
Right now, the twelve “states” that have passed the national popular vote compact, according to the national popular vote website are (Maine Examiner notes Washington D.C. is not a state):
CA and NY signing onto a deal that would transfer to each the electoral power of ten other states is not surprising.
Chicago wanting to stick it to the rest of Illinois is not surprising, either.
Vermont wanting to virtue signal itself to irrelevance is not surprising.
New New Delhi (NJ) wanting to award the brown horde with more electoral power is not surprising.
It’s Albion’s Cuck-seed all over again.
The national popular vote movement was started by John Koza
Koza’s claim to fame, aside from the national popular vote movement, is being co-inventor of the rub-off instant lottery tickets used in state lotteries around the country.
