Nevada, Murphy’s Law, and Unintended Consequences


It looks as if Nevada may become the 15th state to give away its right under Article !!, Section 1, Clause 2 of the Constitution to determine how its electors would vote for President. NPR is reporting the likelihood of the Nevada joining the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact as if it were a good thing.

The Compact would become active if states with at least 270 electoral votes join. If that happens, the participating states would give their electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote. Gentle Reader, suppose enough states join. Now, suppose Donald Trump wins a majority of the popular vote.

Would that be a good thing?

  1. It would be a bad thing because the force to the “heads exploding” simultaneously would be great enough to move the earth out of its current orbit, which would result in a drastic change in the climate.

  2. What will happen if Trump wins the popular vote? Does anybody really expect California, New York and Illinois to keep their word and cast any of their electoral votes for Trump knowing that the voters in those states will have voted overwhelmingly for the Democrat candidate? Only a fool would believe these states will keep their word if a Republican wins the popular vote. This madness can have only one eventual outcome – plunging the country into chaos and destroying the process by which the nation elects the President. This is the intent of those pushing this agenda and there is no version of reality where this will end well for our Republic.

  3. How many times must The Left get bitten in the ass as a result of their own power grabs being turned back on them (Thanks, Harry Reid!) before they finally stop to consider that their next power grab might possibly/eventually/inevitably do it again?
