In the race for White House, GOP State Legislatures have never been as crucial than they are right now. They need to act before this election is lost!
It’s time for Republican state legislatures to raise hell and demand that their state’s election laws are legally upheld and not stomped on by parties looking to steal power. They all need to gavel into session right now and perform their constitutional duty. They’re the ones that write election laws in their states; it is their Constitutional duty to ensure they’re being followed.
They set the rules of the game, not the Federal Government, not the courts, not even governors. The Constitution confers on state legislatures the power of deciding how electors are chosen in their jurisdiction – and nothing some Liberals posts on social media will change that.
Writing for the Blaze, Daniel Horowitz wrote the following:
“A’rt. II, Sec. 1, §2 of the Constitution stipulates that ‘Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct’ the electors to vote for president. The Constitution gives Congress the authority to set the date of that vote, which, pursuant to 3 U.S.C. §7, is the Monday after the second Wednesday in December of presidential election years. This year it is Dec. 14.
Notice how the Constitution specifically gives the job of choosing electors to the legislature, and unlike with standard legislation, there is no shared jurisdiction or responsibility with the governor, much less some random state or federal judge. Charles Pinckney, one of the signers of the Constitution from South Carolina, reiterated on the Senate floor on Jan. 23, 1800, how careful the framers were to cut Congress out of the process.”
You will not fine ONE place in the Constitution where it says that the media or Democrat state attorney generals get to decide who won the election – it’s the state legislatures and the state legislatures ONLY.
The states created the Federal Government, not the other way around.
For too long, the states have capitulated to the D.C. – The Swamp has usurped the power of the states for decades – but that was NEVER how it was supposed to be. America was designed to be a representative republic in which there was shared authority between the respective state governments and the Federal Government. Federalism is the bedrock of our republic.
The 10th amendment states that the powers not delegated to the Federal Government are left to the states. James Madison described the powers of the federal government as “few and defined,” and the powers of the states were to be broader.
Madison also wrote in Federalist No.32 “As the plan of the convention aims only at a partial union or consolidation, the state governments would clearly retain all the rights of sovereignty which they before had and which were not, by the act, exclusively delegated to the United States.
This exclusive delegation, or rather this alienation of state sovereignty, would only exist in three cases: where the Constitution in express terms granted an exclusive authority to the union; where it granted, in one instance, an authority to the union, and in another, prohibited the states from exercising the like authority; and where it granted an authority to the union, to which a similar authority in the states would be absolutely and totally contradictory and repugnant.”
By enforcing election laws and investigating claims of fraud, the Republican state legislatures would be fulfilling the responsibility entrusted to them by Madison and the rest of the Founding Fathers. But they better hurry…
Time is running out!
