Circumventing the Constitution

If I understood the article Colorado and some other states have passed a law that gives their electoral votes to the candidate that gets to most popular votes nation wide.

 

That on the face of it seems to fly in the face of the Constitution.  How can the intent of keeping a few major population centers from running the entire country be addressed?  This is an affront to the founders wise crafting that ensured people living in the majority of the country would not be ruled by small population centers who have no knowledge of life outside their village.

Re: Circumventing the Constitution

What is the constant complaint about farmers on a farm web site?

 

The major portion of the USDA budget has nothing to do with farmers, it's all about city folk.  Their kids in school, their unemployed, their welfare community and their recreational areas.

 

You look at a federal budget in the trillions and complain constantly with a full belly and a probably mouth full of food about a pittance to keep you in that cornucopia supply of food.

 

Across much of the USA where farming is important it's farmers that fund the schools, it's farmers that keep the small towns alive. 

 

It's in the public interest to keep farms in business and not have them all become part of ADM or Cargill or Monsanto etc.  And it's certainly in the public interest not to let the government take over farming anymore than it has.  Look at the collective farms and see how that worked.

Complaining with your mouth full....

really isn't an appealing trait.

 

Farm programs are all about keeping food cheap and plentiful...not about keeping farmers on the land here in America.

 

Guess that they have been successful at keeping food cheap and plentiful....whats the number one health ailment ...Obesity?
