A Tale of Two Governors: In Nevada, Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak vetoed a bill to circumvent the Constitution by giving the state’s Electoral votes to whoever wins the national popular vote. He said it would “diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests.” Yes, that’s exactly why the Founders created the Electoral College. Kudos to him for recognizing that, although it would have been nice if he’d also mentioned that it would be illegal, unconstitutional and unconscionable for state officials to give away their own constituents’ voting rights to larger states.
Meanwhile, Colorado’s Democratic Governor Jared Polis not only signed that law giving away his voters’ Electoral voting rights, he also just signed a bill barring local law enforcement officials from cooperating with federal immigration agents who are trying to detain or arrest illegal aliens.
It’s obvious from these two stories that simply being a Democrat doesn’t mean you have contempt for the Constitution and the rights of your own people. It takes a “progressive” to do that. Funny how, when it comes to defying the Electoral College rules and federal immigration laws, “progressives” are the biggest states’ rights advocates since Jefferson Davis. But let a state dare to try to limit abortion, and watch out! Don't they know that Roe v. Wade is the “law of the land”?!
