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.

WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”
That kind of experience is unmatched.
Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.
Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.
It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.
However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
