- Stop the National Popular Vote Compact in Arizona
"Democracy" has a nice ring to it: One Person, One Vote. However, that's exactly what the Founders did not want: Majority (aka Mob) Rule. When Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A Republic, if you can keep it." Ours is a Constitutional Republic, but only if we, the people, care enough to participate in keeping it.
Our presidents are chosen through a combination of a popular vote and the Electoral College that represents the states. Each state’s entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for Senators. This keeps a handful of the most populous states from dominating all the other states. For example, Donald Trump won the popular vote in Arizona. Thus, the Republican party's 11 Electors will vote for president. Had Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, Arizona's 11 Democrat Electors would be voting for president. (In contrast, California has 55 Electors.) See below for two short videos: Do you Understand the Electoral College? and The Popular Vote vs the Electoral College.
Unfortunately, there is a movement across America that is gaining traction called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. It would distort the procedures of the Electoral College. It would usher in the very "democracy" that the Founders did not want. It is unconstitutional.Click here to read more
