10/3/2021--Last week, the Pennsylvania Capital-Star published a response to my column criticizing the National Vote Compact, from Brock Haussamen, a professor emeritus retired from Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg, N.J., and a volunteer and for the National Popular Vote.
Responses like this are great and I understand the Capital-Star may facilitate more reader reaction. As long as no one identifies any errors in my work, I am content to let both stand and invite readers to read both.
In this case, Haussamen thinks it is OK for a State Legislature to make this decision without direct decision by the people of a state. I know this would be disaster if it ever came about. For me it is about the same as what Republican dominated state legislatures are doing now with regard to future voting controversies.
