U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor,” The Washington Times reports. “Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote.”
Those proposing this subversion are presuming themselves wiser than the Founders – and 14 states and the District of Columbia so far evidently do. But note that nowhere in the Constitution is the word “democracy” mentioned. The founders had designed a system of checks and balances to avoid not only tyranny of branches of government, but of the tyranny of the majority. Such a thing is absolutely possible, and the “wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for dinner” analogy is more than just a witticism. It’s why Bill of Rights protections were not intended to be subject to majority rule.
If a “popular vote” replacement of the Electoral system is allowed to stand, you can kiss “legal” recognition of the right to keep and bear arms goodbye, as well as anything meaningful ever happening to stop the ongoing invasion of “pathway to citizenship”-bound foreign nationals into this country.
