This brainchild of Representative Weed essentially strips away NH's right to vote for who is in our best interest.
This bill adopts the interstate agreement to elect the president by national popular vote.
While our voting system isn't perfect, the concept is that each state carries it's own weight so politicians don't cater just to big cities and forget about the rest of the country.
What this bill does is tosses that right out the window and puts 100% of the power in the hands of major cities leaving NH in the dust. 90% of our state could vote for Candidate A, but if Candidate B gets a majority vote our electoral votes ignore what the people of NH actually want and instead go with the majority of the rest of the country.
Our founding father described pure democracy, which this bill is, as two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.
Sorry Rep Weed but I would rather the people of NH actually have their votes counted instead of having NY City, Boston, Chicago, LA and other major cities make those choices for us.
The experience of all former ages had shown that of all human governments, democracy was the most unstable, fluctuating and short-lived. - John Quincy Adams
A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%. - Thomas Jefferson
That the desires of the majority of the people are often for injustice and inhumanity against the minority, is demonstrated by every page of the history of the world. - John Adams
