JUST IN: Colorado GOP Mounts Appeal, Submits Request To SCOTUS


The Colorado GOP is taking the ultimate active countermeasure to reverse the recent disastrous and unconstitutional decision from Colorado’s Supreme Court.

Colorado Republicans are now asking the Supreme Court of the United States of America to hear their appeal in the Colorado 14th Amendment case.

SCOTUS has yet to decide whether or not they will hear what could turn out to be the case of our time.

Ballot access has been a hot-button issue not just for President Trump, but for disaffected third parties, as well, like the Libertarian Party.

Those in the political establishment have long used the power of ballot access and the insane rules surrounding ballot access to prevent viable alternatives to the two-party system.

WLTR will bring you more updates on this story as they become available, for now, here are the latest developments:

Fox News provided this statement from the Colorado GOP attorneys mounting the appeal:

“By excluding President Trump from the ballot, the Colorado Supreme Court engaged in an unprecedented disregard for the First Amendment right of political parties to select the candidates of their choice and a usurpation of the rights of the people to choose their elected officials.”

The Libertarian Party of New York writes: “Colorado was a test case… for New York. Regardless of how you feel about Trump, he has not been convicted of insurrection. What Colorado did is wholly unconstitutional & denies voters choices. SCOTUS will easily overturn.”

Television writer David Asman states: “Yes, let’s hope SCOTUS acts quickly. A guilty verdict by decree is not due process. It is an abomination.”

The Associated Press explained:

The U.S. Supreme Court has never ruled on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which was added after the Civil War to prevent former Confederates from returning to government.

It says that anyone who swore an oath to “support” the constitution and then “engaged in insurrection” against it cannot hold government office.
