National Popular Vote Compact Would Disenfranchise Smaller and Rural States

With the 2020 presidential election in the rearview mirror, a brazen effort is underway in several states to circumvent the Constitution and fundamentally alter the role of the Electoral College in future presidential elections.
If adopted by enough states and not challenged in court, this unconstitutional effort would potentially disenfranchise the voters of several states by ignoring those states’ choice for president and instead defer to the votes of nonresidents to decide how electoral votes would be cast.
That would have a devastating effect on how Americans select their president.
The ploy is known as the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. The compact’s enabling legislation bypasses America’s most fundamental body of law—the U.S. Constitution, specifically Article II, Section I—and nullifies the Electoral College, which guarantees each state a minimum number of electoral votes to ensure that small and rural states are represented.

(2) Dumb for little states not to litigate NOW?
(3) Federalizes all issues and makes the US of A a unitary state like France!
(4) Ensures the 51% can tyrannize the 49?
Celebrate Independence Day before this takes away our freedom forever and introduces “democracy” AKA mob rule.
