Disenfranchisement and the NPV

While Democrat candidates for President talk about eliminating the electoral college -- which is really quite amusing since that will take an amendment to the Constitution, something a President has no role in -- states are still working on putting in the National Popular Vote interstate compact (NPV or NPVIC).  Colorado recently passed legislation that would allow that state to join in the compact if and when it goes into effect.  The way I understand it, the NPV won't take effect until enough states, equal to 270 electoral votes (the minimum for a candidate to win), pass legislation similar to Colorado; as of now, the NPV is at 181 electoral votes.  Because it is an interstate compact, once the requisite number of states join, approval must be granted by Congress, per Article I, Section 10 of the Constitution.  …

Noahide Law

Why Islam is a death cult.

Anyone who thinks or advocates for violence against others who believe something different is wrong. Completely wrong, in all cases.   There is no good violence, violence for a good cause, the ends justifies the means, nothing. It's all wrong 100% of the time.   We know this. But people in…
