A republic no more.
They no longer need credibility.
“The Supreme Court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority”
The best you can say is 6 are not 100% partisan hacks and I’m not even sure about that.
I have thought for awhile that each state being in complete control of federal voting could be a conflict of interest, unless everyone was honest and law-abiding.
I don’t know much about your laws, but it seems to me that dem controlled states could certainly do a number on a presidential candidate. I don’t know what the answer is, other than separate ballots for president? Of course it could work in reverse.....feds in charge of presidential election and controlling some red states.
Oh what a dangled web we weave.....
It is just in the Constitution, therefore it is a "marginal legal theory"./S
If this is upheld, which it should be, the Alaska ranked choice voting is right out. It was never approved by the legislature.
If Elias is against it, I’m for it. Here in Pas., voter I.D. was passed into law in April of an election year. It was overturned in a Philly court 2 weeks before the election. That is the lind of crap they pull here.
What they also have to do is leave the legal definition of a Governor’s Emergency Powers up to Legislatures and ONLY Legislatures. What happened in NC in 2020 was the SSC declared that the Governor could basically do whatever he wanted under Emergency Powers and that included voiding rules for absentee ballots.
My first thought while skimming this article.
Banana Republic...here we come! Or are we already there?
Guess we need to review another fringe concept. The sky is blue. Didn’t everyone just fall over themselves say how important the Constitution is. Not so much it seems. What is unclear about “the manner of elections is determined by the legislature” Not a new idea as old as well the Constitution.
What’s left is the Athens, TN approach to corruption, if the courts are going to refuse to correct the issues.
“It is just in the Constitution, therefore it is a “marginal legal theory”
It seems the definition and interpretation of “Legislature” is the problem.
I’ve done a little reading on this in the past couple of days, and it’s not a good thing. Might sound okay to some if the conservatives are in charge of the state, but definitely not when the Liberals are. So best to be against it.
I agree with others that it would be the downfall of our democratic republic.
One sided propaganda disguised as “news.” Yahoo! is as much a joke as CNN and the Washington Compost.
3rd World Country.
How does freedom die? To thunderous applause.
The courts actually helped us in New York. We probably wouldn’t be in the majority without it.
That language seems pretty plain to me....
"State courts" don't have the power, but state legislatures most certainly do, although the interference of federal judges in the name of "reducing discrimination" has seemed to over-ride that.
This would seem to limit what Elias did by suing in each state to have courts change what election laws are - not judicial scrutiny to make sure election laws were followed.
