Smaller States Are Destroying Power, Vote of Their State by Supporting Nat’l Popular Vote -Levin/CNS News
"On his nationally syndicated radio talk show 'The Mark Levin Show' on Tuesday, host Mark Levin warned that smaller states are destroying the power, the vote in their state by supporting the national popular vote. Levin's comments came after Oregon’s House passed the national popular vote initiative on June, 5, 2019, according to nationalpopularvote.com. '[T]he National Popular Vote Bill [in Oregon] (status of SB 870) by a 37-22 vote.
The bill now goes to Governor Kate Brown, who sponsored the bill when she was in the legislature, testified in favor of it while she was Secretary of State, and has recently publicly stated that she would sign the bill.' New Mexico’s legislature also passed, and Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed, a national popular vote bill '(status of HB 55), making New Mexico the 15th jurisdiction to have enacted the bill into law,' on April 3, 2019. Even 'the Nevada Senate passed the National Popular Vote bill 12-8, and sent the bill to the office of Governor Steve Sisolak (status of AB186),' but '[o]n May 30, 2019, Governor Steve Sisolak vetoed the National Popular Vote bill (status of AB186).' The National Popular Vote website explains that now '[national popular vote legislation] has been enacted into law in 15 jurisdictions with 189 electoral votes.' Here is a transcript of Mark Levin's remarks from his show on Tuesday: 'The national popular vote initiative, wow, it sounds so democratic. The point is to try and unconstitutionally get around the Electoral College. So, as California goes, so goes the rest of the nation. Is that what the Framers intended? And then you have these idiots in these smaller states that go along with it. They don't even realize that they're giving up their own autonomy. It's incredible. They're destroying the power of their state, the vote in their state."
