Michigan To Ban Donald Trump From 2024 Ballots?
Every day is a new day for crazy things to happen, for normal things to happen, for everything to come to an end, or for something new to start. I try and stay away from cliche phrases but it's true that you learn something new every day, well, that's if you're actively paying attention to the things that are said and done. Something that has always been able to happen in our country happened yesterday and no one was ready for it.
The constitution has many different parts to it and admittedly so, I should know more about the rights, acts, and laws that are in the constitution. Knowing the constitution of the United States of America could be the difference between life or death but also between freedom and imprisonment. Everyone should be up to date on what the constitution says so they know what they are and are not permitted to do. After Colorado soared to the top of the headlines for their actions, it got me wondering if Michigan would follow their lead.
Yesterday, many people around America, had their jaws drop to the floor in total astonishment as the state of Colorado announced that they would be banning Donald Trump from their election ballots during the 2024 election. The state is permitted to do so under the 14th amendment in section 3 which says:
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
So far, there are 3 states that have opened cases against Trump and removing his name from their 2024 election ballots, Obviously, the first is Colorado, but what are the other two you ask? Maine and you guessed it, Michigan. Neither state has made any official rulings yet but are simply opening the door to the discussion and facts of the case before making a sound ruling.
So, there is a possibility that Donald Trump's name is never put back on a presidential ballot in the state of Michigan ever again. Many people believed that he needed to be convicted of being a part of an insurrection, but the 14th amendment clearly says, "shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion or given aid or comfort to the enemies." Colorado is the first and only state to say this so far, but the Mitten State may be right behind them.
