This would be the end of this country as we know it and as it framed. I cringe when I hear the USA referred to as a “Democracy “. The USA was framed as a Republic. I believe the founders had genius insight into human nature, they understood that power corrupts and centralized power equals totalitarialism. Escaping this was at the core of the American revolution. It’s in the first line of the Pledge of Allegiance “and to the republic for which it stands “. Local elections are intended to be the to true Democratic elections.
They are already working on a way around it. Without any change in federal laws.
Basically, they will give the CO electoral votes to whomever has the popular vote, regardless of how CO citizens vote. It won't go into effect unless there are enough states/elector votes on board to win outright, 270 electoral votes. This was signed into law without any input from voters. Now the only way out is to get it on the ballot in 2020 and vote it out.
Proponents like to say that this makes everyone's vote equal. But, the system was deliberately designed to give voice to the minority. Without it, the sparsely populated areas would have no voice. No candidate would even bother visiting or pandering to them. The country would be ruled by the mob. Mobs are inherently easy to outrage and therefore easy to manipulate.
They also like to say that it's only for presidential election, and that the minority still has its voice with house and Senate. ONLY for presidential election? What's good for House and Senate should also be good for POTUS, which is minority needs a voice.
This is a very dangerous path they are trying to force us down.
