The New Hampshire Secretary of State, a Republican, is exploring the idea that Trump can be kept off of the ballot due to the 14th Amendment. Remember when I said that was coming? The only thing I got wrong was in assuming that it would be the Democrats that did it. Holy shit, the Republicans are even more pussified than I thought.
Here it comes.
- Attorneys in Florida are suing to keep Trump off the ballot.
- ABC is pushing that theory
- NBC is at it as well
- Even the Libertarians at Reason are making the same claim
I don’t think it matters, because we all know that the fix is in, but they are all wrong. For starters, I remember all of the birthers who sued to block Obama and their lawsuits were all dismissed for lack of standing. I wonder if these lawsuits will be handled the same way.
Still, as I said, it doesn’t matter. The people who are taking over the government (or who already have) are making the move to make sure Trump doesn’t get into office. They are all singing the same song.
Removing a candidate from the ballot in order to save democracy is like raping all of the women in a town in order to protect virginity.
