It wasn’t that long ago when the Left called for the boycott of Georgia when they changed the rules for voting. They claimed that it would suppress and create discrimination against minority voters. They moved Baseball’s All-Star game from Atlanta to Denver, State Government’s banned travel by officials from traveling to Georgia and many out in LaLa Land called for boycotting what has become a location that music and movie production companies.
However, those changes made by Georgia, created the largest voter turnout in the last election in recent history.
Now we’ve seen a Colorado’s Supreme Court, led by 4 Democratic Justices, disenfranchise the voters of its state from casting a vote for someone that they might consider as their choice for President.
Their interpretation of Article 3 of the 14th Amendment is what they based the decision. It was self-evident that Trump was guilty of causing and supporting an insurrection. No one had been arrested, charged, or convicted of insurrection.
Biden initially stated that he had no comment, “let it run through the court system”, then followed up with “it was self-evident that Trump was guilty of creating an insurrection.” So much for no comment.
The 14th Amendment, Section 5, states: “The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.” This means that Congress has the authority to pass laws to ensure that the rights and protections outlined in the 14th Amendment are upheld. These rights include equal protection under the law, due process, and the guarantee of citizenship for those born or naturalized in the United States.
What happened to “equal protection under the law and due process?”
As far as the Left is concerned, a person is guilty until proven innocent and it doesn’t matter even if a person is proven innocent, to them, they are guilty and only their opinion matters. This is their version of Democracy.
Now the flood gates have opened as other Blue states have begun the process of attempting to remove a candidate, the leading opposing candidate, from their presidential ballots. If they can’t potentially beat him in a one-to-one confrontation, then remove the competition.
This “interpretation” will be appealed to the Supreme Court, which will most certainly be overturned. Let’s hope it’s a 9-0 decision and that the Liberal Judges will rule based on the Constitution and not on a political leaning, but we’ll have to assume, that until proven different, at least one or two will side with the Colorado court.
Who’s actually doing more to oppress the voters?
