Even if the SCOTUS denies this Texas lawsuit

Something like this shouldn’t even be possible...the fact that we just had 150 Million plus voters vote and the winning candidate has 81 Million of those votes, our country shouldn’t be in the hands of 9 people to decide who is President.

WTF IS GOING ON

Yes, this is one of those ‘concerned’ post that a lot of you guys rip on...but I don’t care, I am so pissed off and worried....I hate Republicans, I hate Trump, I can’t believe this coup attempt...this isn’t the world’s greatest democracy, we don’t have peaceful transitions of power, this last month has been just as nerve racking as the month leading up to the election...what’s happening is such bullshit...if Al Gore and Hillary Clinton fought this hard they would have been totally lambasted...

There are too many rotten people with positions of power

The Constitution, other laws, and our institutions were written under the belief that we would have honorable noble people in office who would put country over their beliefs and their parties beliefs and if we had a few rotten people the system would be able to handle it and flush them out. But unfortunately it seems like there are waaay more than a few that are rotting at every level.

Texas SCOTUS lawsuit

Does anyone know what the argument is that these 4 particular states did differently than the other 46? You mean to tell me that these were the only 4 states that changed their election laws and whatever change they actually did was unconstitutional. And Georgia of all states with a republican governor who is all about voter suppression and a republican SOS did this, too.

I am so disgusted

Texas (a confederate state) and 17 other states (half of which were also confederates) are suing 4 States claiming that their citizens’ 14th amendment rights were violated. Ironically, that amendment is one of the reconstruction amendments that was put into the constitution because of the confederacy. Now those states have the nerve to sue states and disenfranchise a lot of African American voters.

If the SCOTUS takes this Texas case

Then the 4 states, plus California, Oregon, Washington, Maryland, NY, the New England states, Virginia, Colorado, and New Jersey need to sue those 18 states for violating the voting rights act....and that probably has more merit than the Texas frivolous lawsuit

But Biden thinks he can compromise and work with these assholes

It’s not just trump, but 99% of the GOP Congress hasn’t recognized Biden’s win, some have joined on to or supported frivolous lawsuits, and one has volunteered to speak the case to the SCOTUS,

If somehow this Texas SCOTUS case goes anywhere

And somehow the SCOTUS overturns the elections in those States......then Pelosi needs to refuse to seat the congressmen in those states also.

In 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Speaker of the House could not exclude a duly-elected candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives. In Powell v. McCormack, 395 U.S. 486 (1969), the Supreme Court ruled that the House's Constitutional authority to judge the qualifications of its own members was post facto and could only be exercised via expulsion after a 2/3rd affirmative vote. In other words, the House and Senate have no discretion when deciding whether to seat a candidate who has been duly elected under state law,


The wouldn’t be duly elected, therefore, shouldn’t be seated. Yes we would lose some Democrats, but the would lose more republicans. 30 Republicans to 24 Democrats
