How can something illegal take effect under any terms?

It is getting close to spit on hands and slit throats time!

I would expect the NPV initiate to make it to SCOTUS before it is implemented. I understand the language which supports states doing whatever they want with their electoral votes.

I do not understand why small states would be stupid enough to do this. Presidential candidates will never waste their time or concern with Nevada if this comes to pass.

If it comes to pass there will be blood flowing down the streets of most every city and town...but if that is what they are after I will have no problem granting them their wish.

That reminds me of the exchange between Mrs Powell & Benjamin Franklin - a conversation which, btw, always appears in its abridged version - but here in the original:

Quote
The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?"

With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it. . . and, if not, blood, gore & guts in the street as true patriots leverage what will become to be known as their 2nd Amendment responsibilities & beat the G-D-, traitorous Dhimmies into the ground. If & when the collapse of cordial societal conversation, supplanted no doubt with the uttermost in cultural perversion, comes about, I cannot emphasize enough the need for a 'No Mercy' policy with these a$$holes.
Shoot them, burn their bodies & toss them to the swine pens. Waste not, want not Mrs. Powell."


Franklin then walked across the street to hoist a few cold ones with Ethan Allen & a few of the Green Mountain Boys.

I'm a bit shocked...a Democrat who actually understands what the Constitution says and affirms what The Founders intended!  A Republic...not a democracy!

“Once effective, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact could diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests and force Nevada’s electors to side with whoever wins the nationwide popular vote, rather than the candidate Nevadans choose,”

He'll take heat for this from the dominate rabid masses in his party, but he deserves credit for doing the right thing on this issue.

Hopefully more will follow suit and do the right thing. I hope the lunacy goes out of fashion sooner than later.

Welcome to the forum. How did you find us?
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson
