Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Plus, the National Popular Vote ignores the fact that we’re not the “United People of America.” We are the “United States of America.” And as more power flows from the states and into the hands of voters directly, what it really does is empower the federal government. The more power the federal government has, the less power the people have. So by pushing the National Popular Vote, people are actually giving up some of their power to the federal government, which will take as much as it’s given. And once it’s given enough, it will be powerful enough to take the rest.
Strong states make for a strong nation. A strong federal government, however, makes only for a strong government.Scott Leffler has no desire to live in Wyoming or South Dakota. But he's sure there are some fine people there. Maybe they should follow him on Twitter @scottleffler.
