The state of Colorado officially joined the national popular vote (NPV) compact in March, bringing the country one step closer to rejecting the Electoral College as designed by the Founding Fathers in favor of glorified mob rule.
However, constitutional rights activists in the state of Colorado are pushing back. They have almost certainly collected enough signatures to put the option to the voters in 2020, as voters will be able to reject an NPV scheme that would make Los Angeles, New York City, and other liberal population centers the only states that matter during presidential elections.
“Giving our votes and our voice away to place like California and New York is not in the best interest of Colorado,” said Rose Pugliese, a county commissioner from Mesa who is helping to lead the effort to preserve the Electoral College.
15 states and the District of Columbia have already ratified the NPV compact, which will tie state electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote nationally. Once enough states have joined the compact to consist of 270 electoral votes (an Electoral College majority), the national popular vote will effectively determine the fate of the nation every four years.
The organization Coloradans Vote is trying to end their state’s participation in this direct attack on the U.S. Republic. They have submitted more than 227,198 signatures to put the question on the ballot next year – well over the required threshold of 125,000 signatures. If those signatures are valid, the people will be able to decide.
“We’re organized as a republic. We’re not a direct democracy,” Pugliese said. “The Founding Fathers set that up to make sure that large population bases do not overrun smaller populations.”
The early momentum is on the side of the constitutionalists, as the Colorado secretary of state’s office reports that the signatures are the most ever accumulated for a proposed ballot measure on a specific topic. A survey from March conducted by Magellan Strategies shows that Colorado voters are deadlocked on the issue – with 47 percent supporting repeal and 47 percent supporting keeping NPV intact.
“However, even if those numbers are too rosy for the repeal effort, I would still expect support for the law to decrease as opponents prosecute the case against the National Popular Vote, so even a lead of, say, 10 points (akin to the national breakdown) would not be secure,” said FiveThirtyEight’s elections analyst Nathaniel Rakich.
“This could be one of the most closely watched ballot measures of the 2020 cycle,” he added.
If the NPV had been in place in 2016, the millions of likely illegal voters stuffing the ballot in urban voting centers would have given control over the country to Hillary Clinton rather than Donald Trump.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
