Save Maine’s Voice and Vote No on NPV (National Public Vote)

Mar 18, 2019

I find it amazing that anyone who is intelligent enough to be representing voters in Maine would not recognize the folly of participating in the new movement called NPV (National Public Vote) which would give Maine’s four Electoral College votes to whoever wins the popular vote nationwide. Why would the voters of Maine want to give up a voice in the election of the President? Why would we bother to go to the polls? If we choose the Democrat candidate and the popular vote is the Republican candidate (or vice-versa), our votes count for nothing! Under the present Electoral College system, Maine’s impact is nearly double what it would be under NPV. If Maine joins NPV, no Presidential candidate would ever spend time or resources in Maine. Large population centers, rather than smaller and mostly rural states like Maine would decide in every election who wins. Personally, I know I don’t want New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles making that decision for Maine.

I wonder if people behind this movement have ever studied how our government was founded. Do they realize that we are a Republic, not a Democracy? Do they know that the Founding Fathers realized that states with lower populations need a way to have a voice in federal government and that the Electoral College is a way to guarantee that? We are, and we always have been, a collection of independent states that, no matter the size or population, deserve a say and a seat at the table of federal government.  Get educated! There are short, simple to understand videos on YouTube that spell out how important this is.

I urge each and every one of you: call your representative and state senator and insist they SAVE MAINE’S VOICE and VOTE NO on NPV!

Doris Meehan is the Secretary of the Cumberland County Republican Committee of Maine.

May 8, 2019 Public Speech: The Immigration Crisis on the Southern Border
3/28/19: Homeland Security Nielsen:
Immigration System in “system-wide meltdown.”

Questions:
1. Should the Mexican border be completely open like the border between Maine and New Hampshire, so that millions can immigrate at will into the United States?

2. Should we ignore the border crossings of drug traffickers, MS-13 gang members, and jihad terrorists?
