Starr McLeod: Supreme Court botches Trump ballot decision


Clearly there are no Constitutional Scholars on the Supreme Court.

The recent “decision” by the Supreme Court re Trump on the ballot is contrary to the Constitution itself.

Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution is commonly referred to as the Supremacy Clause. It establishes that the federal constitution, take precedence over every other law. An additional law passed by Congress is not required.

The constitution further states in Article VI both state and federal officials to take an oath to uphold the United States Constitution, which they did in denying Trump on the ballot.

Colorado is not “answering the question for other states," but in fact is legitimately upholding the Constitution.

A new challenge needs to be brought to the Supreme Court re the enforcement of the insurrection clause.

It clearly bans those who “engaged in insurrection” against the United States from holding any civil, military, or elected office office. How is this not seen correctly by the Court.

When it had been proved that over 100 people engaged in this act on Jan. 6 at the behest of former President Trump.

Are we a nation so divided by ideologies that truth is not evident. It boggles the mind.
