While the "state controlled' media is not reporting this, New Zeal writes: a "progressive strategy is underway to eliminate the role of the states in electing a U.S. President. By transferring electoral votes to a national popular vote (NPV) this 'Compact' would usurp the role of the states as safeguarded by our Constitution. In doing so, it could also neutralize Obama’s critics — totally."
There is a movement, the National Popular Vote Compact (NPVC), and, as statists do, it's working its way through each state like a cancer. Heritage writes: a number of state legislatures have "already adopted an agreement in which participating states would allocate their electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, rather than the winner of the popular vote in their state. The agreement would go into effect when states with a total of more than the 270 electoral votes (the number required to win a presidential election) have adopted the agreement." Unconstitutional doesn't give this assault justice!
Phyllis Schlafly of Eagle Forum has written extensively about the dangers of a Constitutional Convention (Con-Con). One of her excellent pieces "Beware of Attacks on the Constitution", she writes specifically how "The Electoral College Serves Us Well".
