Yes, these petitions are a waste of time. A constitutional amendment is needed. Initiatives like this put all of the voting in the West Coast & the East Coast. I would suggest that those favoring this the NPV initiative is that they have no respect for the citizens residing in middle America.

Just remember that one vote per person is the only real democratic means to elect a representative of the majority.Otherwise you get a non legitimate leader.
This nonsense about NY and California is not relevant.

Just to be clear, signing one of these petitions is a way to put this on the ballot so the citizens of Colorado can decide if their vote is important or not. If this does not get on the ballot and pass, then the National Popular Vote becomes law in Colorado, pending approval by a few other states, and we lost any significance in national elections. I've seen comments implying the petitions are of no consequence, but quite the opposite is true.

The Electoral College is in the constitution. Our founding fathers were quite protective of what they believed was in the best interest of the nation. I support their decision. What is nonsense is:

Let all the voters of Colorado decide if they want the state to be part of the popular vote, not just the democratic leadership of the state.

Agree with tmjbp in the prior post.

If you know your history the reason the electoral came about is because at one time you had to be a landowner to vote. This feudal system no longer exists.
New York and California have many diverse groups. There is such a democratic principle that the majority rules. Our government is based on that.

If you know your history, the reason the electoral college came about is because we were founded as a confederation of independent countries (13 originally) and the founding fathers wanted a central government to provide common protection and promote commerce between these countries. They recognized that the smaller states would never have the population that the larger states would have therefore the smaller states wanted an equalizing factor so that the larger states would not become a tyranny of the majority. That is also why the Senate has equal representation from all states and was originally elected by the state governments and not directly by the people. The House of Representatives was the only body elected directly by the people.
