This Is Not Good News For Our Representative Republic

The Daily Caller is reporting today that New Mexico is the fourteenth state to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC). This is the group that says their states electoral college votes will go to the presidential candidate who gets the most popular votes. In other words, it really doesn’t matter how the residents of these states vote, this is where the electoral votes are going. In essence, that means that New York and California will determine who our next President is if this trend continues.

Just for reference, this is a picture of the 2016 election:

The article points out:

States that have passed similar legislation to join the NPVIC now represent 189 electoral votes. The compact could become official when that number hits 270, enough votes to elect the president of the United States.

That would change America from a Representative Republic to a Democracy.

I am reminded of the words of Benjamin Franklin after the Constitutional Convention of 1787:

A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

Moving forward with the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact means that we will not keep it.

Numbers That Are Important To America’s Future

This article is a summary of recent information found in a book titled, Slavery, Terrorism and Islam by Dr. Peter Hammond. The book deals with the goals of Islam and the fact that it is not a religion, but a political system.

Dr. Hammond states, “The primary aim of Islam is not spiritual but political.”  Dr. Hammond explains the process of Islamization–the method by which Islam changes a free country into an Islamic state which controls all aspects of the lives of the population.

This is the progression according to Dr. Hammond:

At 1% of any given country, Muslims will be regarded as a peace loving minority and not as a threat to anyone…

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs…

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats…After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning…At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare.

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels…After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide.

We are currently watching this progression happen in Europe. We need to be careful and avoid it in America. Sweden is one example of what happens when Muslim immigrants do not assimilate.

Ingrid Carlqvist of The Gatestone Institute has stated:

It may have finally begun to dawn on the people that Swedish Sweden will soon be lost forever, and in many areas replaced by a Middle Eastern state of affairs…No one, however, seems to have asked the crucial question upon which Sweden’s future depends: Is Islam compatible with democracy?”

There is no country where Islam is dominant that can be considered a democracy with freedom of speech and equal justice under law.

These are the things we need to consider as we struggle with revising America’s immigration policies.

The Fight For Democracy In Egypt

The thing to remember when watching events in the Middle East is that the propaganda war is as important (if not more so) than what is actually happening on the ground. This was made evident recently with a video that has gone viral.

The Blaze posted the story and the video today:

It is amazing how a supposedly seriously wounded man could push away medical help with his foot! The video is also available on YouTube.
