Here are some myths that the NPVC proponents are promoting as facts.
#1 Myth: It’s the only way conservatives can win presidential elections in the future.
This is totally false and its support defies logic. Had this scheme been in place in the year 2000, Al Gore would have been elected president. The argument should stop here. How can any conservative legislator be in favor of a scheme that would have made Al (Carbon Footprint) Gore president of the United States? But there are more logic defying points. The list of NPVC supporters reads like a Who is Who among liberal Socialists/Communists. Prominent among those supporters are: The legislatures in the 10 bluest and most socialistic leaning states and District of Columbia, the AFL/CIO, the U. S. Communist Party, and 30 Democrat AZ legislators, to name just a few.
It would be ludicrous to even suggest that these entities wish to help elect conservative presidents. They obviously think it would help Democrats, and they are correct.
#2 Myth: It doesn’t dissolve the Electoral College. It only changes how the electors are distributed.
On paper, it does not dissolve the EC. Only a constitutional amendment can do that. But in practice, the result is the same because the electors would be forced to vote according to the results of the national popular vote. Not according to the votes of the citizens of the state. While opinions vary on this, it could very well be that this is perfectly legal and constitutional. But that does not make it a good idea.
#3 Myth: It Bases the EC vote on the popular vote electors in each state so that each states votes count.
This is totally false. The contract signed by the states participating in the compact forces the electors from each participating state to vote for the candidate who wins the national popular vote. This takes place regardless of how the citizens of the participating states voted.
#4 Myth: It is Anti Corruption. It is easier to corrupt a state than the whole country.
If corruption is an issue, then we must understand that the most likely entities to be corrupted are the largest cities, not the states. But this is a moot point anyway. The masses in the largest cities will vote overwhelmingly Liberal by nature, thus eliminating any need for corruption.
#5 Myth: It is not a Democrat plot.
This one is correct. Many Republicans are participants in the plot. Hopefully, we the people can enlighten some of these Republicans so that they abandon this crazy idea that the National Popular Vote Compact will help elect conservative presidents.

As we saw in the hearing, arguments that NPV is unconstitutional go nowhere, observations about turning into democracy gain little traction and the words of Lenin ring so true that “Communism must be built by non-communist hands.”
Vladimir Lenin said, “Communism must be built by non-communist hands.”
The Communist Party USA is tasked with changing the Electoral College; it has already undergone two major changes since the Constitution was originally ratified as the Supreme Law of the Land.

If it is to advance, this struggle will also have to overcome a number of road blocks and bring a bout certain long overdue democratic reforms.
a) Federal guarantee of the right to vote in all elections without discrimination;
b) Abolition of the seniority system in Congressional committees;
c) Amendment of Senate Rule 22 so as to make possible the ending of a filibuster;
d) Abolition of gerrymandering by state legislatures in laying out the size and boundaries of Congressional districts, as well as in representation to state legislatures, in order to correct inequities in representation as between urban and rural areas and to assure the right of the Negro people to full representation;
e) Abolition of the Electoral College and election of the president by direct popular vote.
f) Elimination of legal obstacles to placing minority parties an independent candidates on the ballot; adoption of proportional representation;
g) Introduction in all states of initiative, referendum and recall.
ASK THEM TO STOP SUPPORTING NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE AND WHY THEY WERE NOT TOLD ABOUT THIS.
NO, THEY HAVEN’T RESEARCHED THIS ISSUE WELL ENOUGH TO SEE THROUGH THE SMOKE. IT IS WHAT THEY DON’T SAY THAT IS SO DAMAGING TO LIBERTY.
ASK YOUR REPUBLICAN REPRESENTATIVES AND SENATORS WHY THEY SUPPORT THE COMMUNIST AGENDA AND METHODS, AND THE EVENTUAL DESTRUCTION OF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE THROUGH ‘PROGRESSIVE PATIENT GRADUALISM’. This means we are being boiled one degree at a time.
