Sometimes when Democrats are in charge, they do things that I don't like but it effectively doesn't apply to me so I can live with it. Other times they do things so ridiculously awful that it makes me sick to my stomach.

This is one of those times!

If you haven't heard, Colorado's Democrat Governor Jared Polis, is getting ready to sign a bill that will effectively opt Colorado out of the Electoral college process.

Via 9News:
Gov. Jared Polis (D-Colorado) will sign a bill into law that opts Colorado out of the Electoral College, the governor’s office tells Next with Kyle Clark. 
The Democrat-controlled legislature formally approved the measure last week. Under the bill, Colorado's nine electoral college votes would go to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote, rather than the candidate who wins this state. 
Eleven other states and the District of Columbia adopted this law already. A law in Colorado would give the nationwide initiative 181 electoral votes. The National Popular Vote compact will not become official unless 270 electoral votes are guaranteed, meaning more states need to sign on for this to change a presidential election.
When I see stuff like this, it really does hurt my head. It's clear the people pushing for this either don't understand why the Electoral College was created... or they understand all too well.

As a Colorado resident, this will essentially nullify my vote!

Here is a great video from Prager University that explains why we need the Electoral College way better than I can:

In short, without the Electoral College a small minority of states with bigger populations will control the outcome of Presidential elections. Do you really want New York and California to dictate what happens in your state?

What do you think about this initiative? Do you agree with it, or disagree with it? Let us know in the comments.
