    The Democrats are trying to pass a resolution stating that until some committee is satisfied that Trump has released every detail of his tax returns, his name can not be on the ballot in certain states in 2020. They should stop now and apologize to the nation for even suggesting it.

    Trump could be left off some states’ ballots in 2020 if these bills become law

    We're a republic not a democracy, right? Funny how Republicans are suddenly against states' rights when it's inconvenient.

    Its not Congress but various State Houses. I have no clue if that's legal? Can GOP controlled States put rules in that would exclude democrat candidates?
    How about, if you were ever a communist, or ever used food stamps or welfare or were ever arrested, or were never a member of the US military?

    A resolution by the Federal Congress telling States that they cannot include the President of the United States on their ballots is a states rights issue?

    Really?

    So, there were how many states that went to the GOP and how many to the Democrats?

    If every red state decided to keep every Democrat off the Presidential ballots, you'd be okay with that?

    Shall we keep the Democrats off the presidential election ballot by state?

    Wow, this isn't just Washington state, this is an organized countrywide effort. Find out who is behind organizing this traitorous bullshit and hang them for the treason it is.

    Also hang any rep that votes yes for this unconstitutional treasonous bullshit.

    Fuck no it's not legal, and if there's any law agencies in this country worth their salt, they need to hunt down and prosecute who's behind organizing this attack on American elections. Furthermore, whoever is pulling that crap, needs to publicly hang or face firing squad. Enough is enough.

    1. Take the EC out.
    2. Allow 16 year olds to vote.
    3. Allow illegals to vote.
    4. Take Trumps name off the ballot.


    It used to be that when you have a candidate, the strategy would be issues, positive news stories and relating to the voters. The Democrats have reached a new low. Nothing about presenting a good candidate....just getting rid of the opposition and get the most ignoran t voters possible while changing the constitution.

    Just WOW. Democrats...are you approving of all of this???

    You forget, federal elections are run by feds, not states. Your own? Yo7 can have your states rights.

    If a state takes a president off the ballot. Then their states vote doesn't count at all. I'm good with that, since it would be liberal states doing it.

    Now, if I wanted to meet their demands, I would have one of my own. Each state has one vote. :)
