The Daily Signal did some digging. The goal was to uncover who was funding National Popular Vote. The “non-profit” pushing the movement to end the Electoral College for electing Presidents of the United States. I don’t think anyone went into this unsure of the results.
But they are clear on the impact. A significant blow to the Republic. An end to any national political influence for smaller states. Even socialists need to budget their money when it comes to running a national campaign. If you can visit a few major cities where Democrat voters are concentrated, you don’t need to go anywhere else. Ever again.
Who would want that?
According to the Daily Signal, Jonathan Soros.
The Jennifer and Jonathan Allan Soros Foundation, for example, gave $1 million to the nonprofit in 2011.
Here’s another big donor to liberal causes.
The Stephen M. Silberstein Foundation made donations totaling $1 million to National Popular Vote Inc. from 2008 to 2012, according to the most recent data. The Silberstein Foundation gave $350,000 in 2008, $250,000 in 2009, $250,000 in 2010, and $150,000 in 2012.
The Sandler Foundation, The Tides Foundation; None of the 16 grants from institutional donors were conservative. All directed at one goal. Make your vote meaningless.
[New Hampshire] With a population of just over 1.3 million the primary system would change. Candidates would only visit large liberal cities. Sprawling urban areas. New York (8 million), Chicago (2.7 million), Los Angeles (10 million). Candidates and their policies would appeal to those voters.
And the real problem, as Skip noted here, is that
“Conservatives just got on with their lives while Progressives have played the long game of nation-rebuilding-in-their-ideological-image. The Founders depended on a nation of informed and active citizens – we are now far from that.”
Progressives are trying to buy the presidency out from under us. And they are close to doing it. We can’t spend enough time talking about that means to States like New Hampshire. And what it should mean for Democrats in New Hampshire who support it. The end of their political careers.
