    There will be no election. Black helicopters will land on the WH on January 21st 2021 to impose Agenda 21 on the USA.

    And we’re back live!!

    After losing the Presidential election in AZ and GA, Republicans are up to their old tricks to undo democracy.

    In AZ, the head of the state Ways and Means Committee has filed a bill that would allow the state legislature to override the Secretary of State’s certification of the Presidential election and send their own slate of electors.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/poli...esults-in-a-presidential-election/ar-BB1dc3xG

    In GA, the Republicans are looking to seriously limit people’s ability to vote by mail. They’ve submitted a bill that would require voters to submit a photocopy of a valid form of ID when they request an absentee ballot and when they send in their ballot..

    Buckley v. Valeo was a 1976 Supreme Court decision.
    Essentially, it ruled that the Federal Election Campaign Act (signed by Nixon) with its amendments (which limits on "PACs" and wassigned by Ford) was partially unconstitutional.

    The FECA put strict limits on campaign donations and campaign spending by candidates.

    Buckley v. Valeo opened up the world of "unlimited" Campaign spending.
    It did not overturn limits on campaign donations, though (as many have claimed).
    The controversial part was overturning limits on so-called "Independent" expenditures (outside of the candidate or campaign).

    The most curious thing is the list of plaintiffs, which included James Buckley (a New York Conservative, later judge, and brother of William F. Buckley, Jr.) Libertarians, the ACLU and 1968 Presidential Candidate Sen. Eugene McCarthy.

    Here is a link to the decision. Admittedly, I have not read it in a couple of decades (we studied it in Constitutional law), but I scanned it a bit before posting.
