Democrats have found yet another way to circumvent the U.S. Constitution: Bypass the Electoral College and elect a president by popular vote without first passing an amendment to the founding document, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.
The Massachusetts Senate has joined five other states in passing a National Popular Vote bill to do just that. It approved the legislation July 15 by a margin of 28-10.

Our freedom of religion is still our protection from government policies. God commands faith in Him, not faith in doctors or medical insurance. We do not have to participate in the Health Care Reform, UNLESS we choose some insurance; then we loose the protection of the religious clause.
It is the same with other laws. We cannot rent to or hire openly homosexual people IF we obviously follow God.
I admit it, I think the electorial college is a joke. I understand why it was need when certain states were very unpopulated but now why can't the person with the most votes win
If the person with the most votes wins - then, there would never have been a President GW Bush - Al Gore would have been president.
True but I just don't like the idea that even if a canidate get the votes they can still lose.
It sounds great to say that "he who has the most popular votes, wins", but before you say that, you should do your homework. Look at what the implications of a popular vote are in nations that use that system. You may not like what you find.
Also, more food for thought: The 17th amendment changed the way US senators are elected. They were once selected by the states, but now they are popularly elected, contrary to the original constitutional intent.
And how about the original requirement that only landowners could vote? Are we really better off now?
Not advocating one side or another--but our electoral system is not what it once was. Think about this before you decide that we should change it again.
Eh, Idunno about that specifically, but there are plenty of other signs out there. So--be prepared, but let's not jump to conclusions yet.
On the other hand, we do need to act now, before things do get out of hand.
