The Electoral College is under attack – here’s what you can do
When you read Destroying the Electoral College: The Anti-Federalist National Popular Vote Scheme you will learn how the Left is seeking to destroy the Founding Fathers’ brilliant system that guarantees the representative, balanced election of the U.S. President.
Consider: Hillary Clinton won the national popular vote in 2016. BUT, Donald Trump won over 2600 counties, while Clinton won less than 500. Should those 2,626 counties, some of which produce most of the food and energy for our nation have been shut out from having a say over electing the President?
The Founders’ Electoral College system ensured that no powerful faction or special interest could seize control of the White House. But the Left is seducing state after state to forfeit this representative balance by sabotaging the Electoral College devised by the Founders.
If they succeed, Progressive special interests will dominate presidential elections. Population-dense cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City, and high-population states like California and New York will seize control over choosing the President.
That threat is why The Heritage Foundation—America’s most influential conservative think tank—is mounting opposition to the National Popular Vote (NPV) scheme.
Many politicians and citizens support NPV and the destruction of the Founders’ Electoral College system because they don’t know any better. It’s up to us to make sure they know the truth.
Heritage is positioned to act. We’re releasing reports and eBooks like the one we’re sending you, in order to spread the truth about the Electoral College. And we can send respected experts across America to expose the devastating impacts of the NPV scheme on our system of government.
But we need to move very quickly. Fifteen states—representing almost three-quarters of the Electoral College votes needed to elect the President—have agreed to the disastrous NPV scheme!
Will you make a gift today to save the Electoral College?
Yes, I will help Heritage stop the National Popular Vote scheme. All Americans—urban and rural—deserve to have a voice in electing the President!
Thank you for your gift to the Heritage Foundation!
You know that sound conservative policy is the best answer to our nation’s problems.
But the liberal left and the Washington Establishment have been blinded by fake news and a stubborn resolve to keep the status quo. This is unacceptable! They have to feel the heat—and that’s where Heritage Action for America comes in. Heritage Action’s lobbyists and grassroots activists put political pressure on legislators and lawmakers to get The Heritage Foundation’s policies across the finish line. Each and every day, Heritage Action is pressuring lawmakers to step it up and fix health care, stop amnesty, and pass welfare reform—or they’ll feel the heat at the polls. But we can’t do this without you.
Hold Washington’s feet to the fire with your gift to Heritage Action today!
