Democrats Are All About Restricting Ballot Access If It Helps Stop Trump

Democrats Are All About Restricting Ballot Access If It Helps Stop Trump

In their zeal to remove Trump from office, Democratic state legislators are making a farce of the Constitution itself, threatening to fully destroy it.

Earlier this month, California began to join the growing chorus of Democrat-run states that are restricting which candidates may be listed on the presidential ballot. Normally, Democrats decry any limits on ballot access, be they for candidates or voters, but this bill is different. Why? Because it is an undisguised attempt to keep Donald Trump off the ballot, and when Trump enters the equation, his opponents throw all other calculations out the window.
The bill is dressed up as a law to compel the president to release his tax returns, but it is really a form of nullification of federal law, the act of Resistance enragés who care for nothing so much as the idea that Donald Trump should not be allowed to occupy the White House. They will allow no law or Constitution to stand in the way of that goal.

Even beyond the blatant illogic of this bill is a more nefarious truth. This bill, in combination with another unconstitutional measure passed by California’s legislature, would not only deny Trump the presidency but would give California the power to deny any Republican presidential candidate a national electoral victory.
