Constantin Querard tried… and failed… to get his National Popular Vote scheme passed last year…. rumor has it that he will try again…. does he have the numbers? Are there really enough fools in the Legislature to go along with his scheme… you bet there is! CQ makes sure to run the dim bulbs who are sure to fall for his schemes…..
Democracy or Republic? Enough About The Popular Vote
By John Porter
Thank you for your time and attention.
First, please let me be very clear, what I have written here for your consideration is not about the Republican Party, Democrat Party, Independent Party, Libertarian Party, Tea Party or any other Party. It is about an idea conceived over two centuries ago, a country, a people, a document.
Two hundred and twenty nine years ago (1787) a group of men whom we now refer to as the “founding fathers,” following a long and bloody battle for their independence from a dictatorial Monarchy, assembled themselves together in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and did their best to establish a country governed in a God-fearing way by representatives who were selected by the people who were to be governed.
No where in the history of all mankind were there any examples or even political theory in existence that offered them any hope that a republican form of government, based on the new concept of consent of the governed, could succeed on a wilderness continent which was much larger than any European state.
These men met there on the world stage to carry out the first of three acts in this epic political drama, the drafting of the United States Constitution. The final document was the culmination of a fierce political struggle that had been waged for four sweltering summer months in secret behind guarded closed doors. The document sought to reconcile individual personal liberty with the perceived need for a central government with powers to forge a political and economic common market among thirteen separate and sovereign states.
