I’ll crawl over broken glass to write in Donald Trump’s name.
Of course triggering a substantial drop in Republican turnout for the 2020 primary/general elections was a desired (by the DemocRATS) outcome of this devious bit of chicanery. Satan never sleeps.
It will be ruled unconstitutional in a few months.
Needs to be struck down by courts immediately.
And what about its applicability if any towards write in candidates?
What is the downside to Trump withdrawing from California for 2020?
The upside may be that him not running in such a big state would finally be an event that may force the media to acknowledge that the national popular vote is a completely fictional number made up by accumulating unrelated separate vote totals from the 50 states plus DC.
How could they even report on a popular vote winner or lose if Trump takes himself out of the most populous state?
If there is no significant downside, maybe that is what he should do!
Why not apply this requirement of every candidate in every race?
Tax returns not required.
It’s an unconstitutional law and will be shot down in the courts.
The biggest criminals are those who are passing this law, they have conveniently excluded themselves from it
Poll taxes were intended to keep poor from voting and are illegal.
How is a rule intended to keep qualified candidates off the ballot legal?
[[[Republican leaders in the Golden State, however, argue that if the law actually keeps Trump off the March primary ballot, it would all but assure a depressed Republican turnout statewide]]]
The true intent of the legislation.
I’m fascinated that a “law” from a state was created to force a candidate to do something previously not against the law to stop the candidate from being elected with forced withdrawal from the privilege of running for office.
Under the XIV amendment within the equal protection clause it states that although one may have no right to be elected or appointed to an office, all persons do have a federal constitutional right to be considered for public service without the burden of invidiously discriminatory disqualification. And since there is no requirement for a person to disclose his/her taxes, this qualifies. The action by the states is unconstitutional. No state can over rule the Constitution.
Give us a reason to show up, idiots!!!
I’m not so worried about this law. The one I’m worried about is, “No candidate who goes by the name ‘Donald Trump’, or any variation thereof, shall appear on the 2020 Presidential Ballot in California. “
California Republicans need to use this law against the Rats by proving the dems filed fraudulent tax returns. Should be easy to do since almost every Rat is a crook.
I thought Trump was gauche, and would depress turnout?
Tell me again, how many electoral votes did Trump get from California in 2016?
