Mass. may join effort to bypass Electoral College – MOB Rule On the Way

I reported a couple of weeks ago on this movement to eliminate the electoral college.  Main Stream Media will not report it. 

If this effort is successful, it will become MOB rule in America.  This change goes against the ideas of Madison and our founding fathers.  My earlier blog on this subject can be found here.  In the comment section is the following statement:   “In our own time, we can see other advantages of the Electoral College. Under direct popular election of the president, the Democratic candidate would probably seek large majorities in major metropolitan areas on both coasts, ignoring the smaller states in between. The alienation of “Middle America” would increase.”

I don’t know about you but I am feeling alienated enough.  Wake up America!

Below is the most recent news on this subject.

Mass. may join effort to bypass Electoral College – Local News Updates – MetroDesk – The Boston Globe:

“The state Legislature is poised to give final approval this week to a new law intended to bypass the Electoral College system and ensure that the winner of the presidential election is determined by the national popular vote.

Both the House and Senate have approved the National Popular Vote bill. Final enactment votes are needed in both chambers, however, before the bill goes to the governor’s desk, the Globe reported last week.

Governor Deval Patrick’s press office didn’t immediately return a message this morning seeking comment on whether he would sign the bill, if it makes its way to his desk.
Under the proposed law, all 12 of the state’s electoral votes would be awarded to the candidate who receives the most votes nationally.

Supporters are waging a state-by-state campaign to try to get such bills enacted. Once states possessing a majority of the electoral votes (or 270 of 538) have enacted the laws, the candidate winning the most votes nationally would be assured a majority of the Electoral College votes, no matter how the other states vote and how their electoral votes are distributed.”
