bypass the electoral college and give all electoral votes to the candidate who won the national majority. Illinois, New Jersey, Hawaii, Maryland, and Washington already have this kind of legislation.
Is it any wonder that these states are the states among those that most approve of Obama's performance?
Obviously, we are already a long way from this method (I can't help but think of the 17th Amendment here, but that's another story). These laws will further erode the Republic. A candidate who was not supported by the citizens of a state could easily win the state's electoral vote.
There is a reason Progressives, Communists, Marxists and their ilk like to call the United States a Democracy, not a Republic. Our Founders warned about democracies. A democracy is the enslavement of the minority by the majority. Venezuela is a democracy.
If you live in Massachusetts, please be vocal in your opposition to this.
