The new Democratic majority in the Virginia legislature really hates our republic. We now they hate gun owners, and, it seems they even hate their own voters as well.
Virginia is about to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, whose purpose is to usurp the constitution and award presidential delegates in the general election to the winner of the popular vote:
THE HILL – 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.
The measure, also known as House Bill 177, passed the legislative chamber in a 51-46 vote on Tuesday after clearing the body’s Privileges and Elections Committee in a vote last week.
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.”
Hmm, I wonder, if this abomination passes what would happen if a Republican won the national majority but lost Virginia in the future? Want to bet they would start screaming that “democracy in Virginia has been destroyed” or some such? The fact is this, the Democrats here understand that the next state elections are not going to go their way. So, how can they perpetuate their power, which is what these miscreants worship? They are gambling that future presidential elections will favor Democrats, even if Virginia turns back to red. And lets face it, after the Democrats here have shown disdain for natural rights in Virginia, they are likely to see their majority vanish.
Imagine the rank hypocrisy of this act. People who claim to want “democracy” are actually squashing it. Again, what happens when a Republican wins a heavy majority in a state, but loses the national popular vote? What happens then? The votes of that state have basically been erased haven’t they? Yes, they have been silenced by California, New York, and large cities like Chicago. Sound “democratic” to you?
