In due course, the license and lawlessness of democracy produces mob rule.
— Polybius, Histories, Book VI
A bill being considered by the Arizona state legislature would call for a radical change in the U.S. Constitution’s process of electing a president.
Republican and Democrat members of the state House and Senate have united to support a pair of bills (HB 2456 and SB 1218) that would authorize the state to join a “Compact of States” for the purpose of contributing Arizona’s 11 electoral votes to the winner of the National Popular Vote (NPV). The compact would effectively abolish the electoral college established by our Founding Fathers in the Constitution.
