Fourteen States Want to Keep Donald Trump off the 2020 Ballot


Democrats have been busy trying to cast themselves as the party of election fairness, access, and a free and open democracy. As such, they have fought bitterly to resurrect the Voting Rights Act, they’ve battled against gerrymandering, and they have done everything they can do to prevent Republicans from passing voter ID laws. But you know, it’s a funny thing. When it suits them, they have no problem making some very strange, unconstitutional laws that serve to limit democracy, not expand it. In that category, you can throw their push for the abolition of the Electoral College, which would only serve to elect Democrats and steal power from smaller red states.

Worse, there’s this (from Salon):

As President Donald Trump continues to refuse requests to hand over copies of his tax returns from Democrats on Capitol Hill, state lawmakers are considering making their release a condition of the 2020 presidential election.

Neary twenty states across the country have introduced legislation that would require all presidential and vice presidential candidates to release their individual tax returns in order to appear on the ballot during the presidential or general election, according to data from the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL).

Bills requiring prospective presidential candidates to disclose recent tax returns as a condition to appear on the ballot are currently pending in the following fourteen states: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington. Similar legislation, introduced this year, failed in Maryland, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Mexico and Virginia.

Now, it’s unlikely that any state that Trump has a prayer of winning in the first place will pass this legislation. So it probably won’t make any material difference in the election.

Even so, liberals should be disturbed by this blatant attempt to steal the presidency. What is the damn big deal about Trump’s tax returns? Why is this such a sticking point for the Democrats? Do they not have two years’ worth of Mueller investigation to tell them that their Big Russian Conspiracy was a crock of you-know-what? Of course they do. They just want to dig and dig and dig until they find something that might give Trump some bad headlines.

This is harassment, nothing more. The idea that we would turn this into an actual barrier to the ballot is outrageous, partisan, and anti-democratic.

But that’s pretty much what Democrats have become.

What do you think?

  1. Talk about pathetic to the 10th Power!!! In this wacky environment, who knows what will transpire with these 18 states. I hope they remember what happens when they change the rules of the game – I hope they’re prepared to have a duplication of this if & when a dimwit is the front runner. Prime example – The Nuclear Option in Congress.
    It’s sad & telling that they know they can not win on merit or message so they have to resort to underhanded maneuvers.

    • We are aware of this tactic as Oregon has already passed that law with out a vote of the citizens. The question is what’s being done to over turn such un democratic bs state law that must be against federal election laws. ???

  2. An uneducated public, especially those under 30, would allow Dems to do anything in their power to take our President down, not to mention our Constitution. I don’t have much faith these yokels would even care. God alone can save this Republic.

      • Dude, fist of all, ” Mormon” is a nickname. We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We are pro-constitution, anti-socialism, anti-communist, anti-facist, conservatives. Well, except for a few, I have never understood how anyone can be Democrat and Latter-Day Saint. It is like mixing oil and water. The basic beliefs of the church are the opposite of the DNCs platform. I know, Harry Reid – what an embarrassment to us . . . There are a lot of us, we support ourselves and our communities and live clean lives; we have strength from our faith in God and use the power of fasting and prayer in our lives. We believe in the atonement of Jesus Christ, our redeemer. We strive to be like our Savior. We love our neighbors and desire to good to all mankind. I cannot understand why you would lump us with Democrats and not be happy to have us around. We’ve got your bask . . .and are willing to fight to our death to defend your right to hate us . . .

  3. This isn’t the Country I grew up in. You are only supposed to investigate if you have probable cause for a crime…not investigate someone forever until you find a crime..UnAmerican in the extreme..This is NOT JUSTICE..this is STALKING

  4. Exactly why I can’t stand whiny ass liberals, just like the bill they are passing in California, a teacher cannot reprimand a student for not following guidelines, all the way up to 12th grade. No wonder these idiots have no respect for anyone or anything, all thay do is cry, cry, cry…..MAGA 2020

    • Really? If that is true and passes, the parents should be required to sit in the classrooms at least 20 hours a month each to observe and to reprimand their children if the teachers cannot.

  5. I think Dems want EVERYSINGLE SOLITARY thing relative to Pres. Trump. If gives them, among other things, names of people who have dealt with him, worked with him associate with him in any way and provides a resource for the Left to analyze, exploit and punish. It’s absolutely TRAGIC what is happening and can’t believe there’s no recourse open to Pres . Trump and those who DO support him.

    • What about all the history on Obama that was hidden? They didn’t seem to care if he was legally allowed to run or not.

  6. I told a friend, the liberals have become psychotic in their quest to bring down a duly elected president. And it’s frightening the lengths to which they will go. This is not the USA I grew up in, that I cherish, and would die for! Not anymore, and my 28 yr old daughter doesn’t understand why this upsets me! She wasn’t taught anything in school about socialism, communism, and the destruction of civil rights that they bring, and doesn’t want to discuss them now! What a failure our schools have done to our kids! And consequently the liberals will win! Russia was right! We will fall from within!

  7. The DEMs call for Trump’s tax returns is nothing but a diversion from their own criminal acts. By making calls for Trump’s tax returns is to throw crap across a room and hope it sticks on the wall. If Trump had ANYTHING suspicious in his personal affairs the IRS would be all over it like white on rice. The DEMs MO is “Attack! Attack! Attack!” regardless of facts.

    As for those who lament younger people know nothing, blame the parents. Too many parents use the educational system as a convenient babysitter rather than a place to learn something of value. If you want real reform, open up the voucher system, eliminate public sector unions in education, get the federal government out of education and hold parents responsible for their child’s behavior.

    • I know a few democrates that scream for his returns just to say something, but on the other hand did NOT FILE them selfs because they owe taxes or they say I am to old or not fair system. How did these democRATS become millionairs in 4 yrs on their salary that the DEMOC RATS say is to small they can not live on such a low income

  8. Let’s face it. These states are just blowing it out of their as_es. It is against the law to keep anyone off the ballots that have enough signatures of supporters. These people are so desperate they are.making total jerks of themselves.

  9. So does this mean that these states are no longer want to be a part of the 50 states that make up the United States of America? As Americans, we work and play together, solve each others problems and issues together, fight wars as one solid fighting force to protect this great nation together, regardless of political, or religious beliefs to make this nation stronger, not weaker. These states need to think this one out better, rather than reacting out of emotions.

  10. These states need to take a lesson from our military, the very best in the world. Our military is extremely effective as it does not take sides with who the Commander in Chief happens to be, whether he or she is Republican, Democrat or liberal. The President is the Commander in Chief and you always support him, no questions asked. It has to be considered, however, that most of these politicians never served in our military so how would they know the difference and that a lesson could be learned here.

  11. I am very curious to know why it is the Demoncraps feel they can move the goal posts every time it looks like they are going to lose?
    Do they even know or care how insane this makes them look?

  12. Did someone say WACKO?
    Why don’t we require voters to past a constitutional test to vote
    If they understood our laws. And rights
    Then they can vote
    That goes for the Dems, they are the
    Dumbest if the bunch,
    It also gives us the right to vote these idiots out of office The sooner the better
    For our country,
    If they don’t want to honor our constitution, then leave the country
    Believe me, we won’t miss you one bit

  13. Sounds like Russia, Cuba, China, and the crown jewel”Venezuelan” tactics!!! Apparently we are already a socialist country???

  14. Liberals think they know all there is to know about every thing and anything. They Riot and protest if any one even tries to say something different or not just as the liberal professor said.. However if a dem is ever elected again to the Presidents office we would in less than 4 years be a 3rd world country. We would have nothing even related to our constitution and bill of rights. Shoe stores would close by the hundreds a day until gone due to us living on our knees. When they say our college students are the future of this country is a really scary thing to consider. They know nothing of this country’s history. Know nothing about freedom and how it was won. Have no clue how to earn their keep . Panic at the thought of working for a living. Expect a reward just for showing up for work.Voter ID.? Perish the thought. That would not give them any reason to riot and vandalize property.If they really in their heart believed in what they are protesting they would not hide their faces behind a mask. AOC is a very good example of what is being produced by our colleges of higher education.

    • You mean she actually has a higher education? Who knew. Certainly not by what comes out of her mouth.

  15. Unless they are able to pass a Constitutional Amendment, the States cannot prohibit a Candidate from National elections.

    • I would think they are laws against what they are trying to attempt. It violates our freedoms. Such sorry sad people!!! They ARE NOT for the US or its citizens.

  16. Arrest the entire Democratic Socialist communist party and let’s see hahahahaha w they react to that. Are they above the law? No! Arrest them all. Don’t need a subpoena.

  17. Income disclosure should really not be a problem unless you have something to hide. I would have liked requiring the Clintons to release their financials. I am rather suspicious of them and their foundation. People in the military and working for defense contractors have background checks all the time. Article II of the Constitution specifically lists treason (waging war against the United States) and bribery as impeachable offenses.

    Incidentally, I agree that the Russia allegations are CYOA on the part of the Clintons and the DNC for being a crappy candidate and running a crappy campaign.

  18. It’s just another power play, Most people don’t give a damn about other people’s tax returns, it’s enough to deal with their own. Dems just want to cheat the electoral process any way their mini minds can think of, normally in a robotic manner. Just see how often they all parrot the exact same verbiage. So sad they must cheat, lie, and obstruct, get that “obstruct” correct and constitutionally right way of voting, and everything else. Worse than tired 3 year old children, I’ve seen playgrounds with better manners, and behavior.

  19. Before anyone gets to see PRESIDENT TRUMP’S tax returns,
    I want the AMERICAN PEOPLE to see OBUNGHOLE the FRAUD POS’s REAL “birth certificate” (not a photoshopped forgery) and his “school transcripts”, that have been “sealed” and “protected” by a gaggle of high-priced lawyers from the DNC to the tune of over 3 million dollars (the last time that figure was posted..probably much MORE now) in order to keep the American People from seeing how we ALL got bamboozled by CORRUPT scammers in the DEMOCOMMUNIST “party”.

  20. Then none of their votes do not count at all for either party. That is not fair to the Trump voters either. But this is really not the people wanting this it is the democratic congress and state legislators doing this and it has to be illegal.

  21. Why don’t we tell those states that it appears they will not be qualified to have their votes counted for the presidential election? Two can play this incredibly stupid game the libtards are playing.

  22. I think their should be a federal law suit against the first state to pass such legislation. The requirements for Pres are in the constitution. Any additional requirements to keep someone off the ballot by requiring a federal law violation should be met with a court order to cease and desist.

  23. Surpris,. Surprise. Democrat-controlled state want to keep Trump off the 2020 ballot. That’s the only possible way they can keep Trump from being president until Jan 2024. In other words, no surprise at all. Too bad for them there is no way they can possibly do so; even by trying to change the rules of the presidential game in the middle of the season. Democrats are so lame..

    • Just make sure IF this is Allowed which I don’t think it is..
      Write in His Name …..They can’t Stop you for doing that !!
      Easy Fix 😉

      PRESIDENT TRUMP 2020

      GET THE WALL UP NOW AND SEND ” ALL ILLEGALS ” BACK !! DO IT NOW !!

  24. I apologize for my state Washington being one of these IGNORANT STATES.

    I just hope we can write Trump in and they will be forced to count it

  25. If it’s not his tax returns, it will be another bogus issue like the Russian Collusion farce. Trump’s taxes are in all probability so complicated that it would take a team of Philadelphia lawyers to figure them out. Releasing them would unleash a never-ending torrent of questions & innuendos. Meanwhile, what is Pelosi’s House really accomplishing for the American people?

  26. COMMON SENSE SAYS ALL PRESIDENTS SHOULD BE AUTOMATICALLY ON THE NEXT BALLOT.
    MAKE IT A LAW IF THE DEM MUS COM SOC ARE SO AFRAID OF LOSING THEY ARE CHEATING
    AGAIN.
    PRES. TRUMP WILL WIN THAT’S A GIVEN. HE HAS DONE SO MUCH GOOD FOR OUR CITIZENS AND OUR COUNTRY. ANOTHER 4 YEARS AND THE SKIES THE LIMIT!!! HE WILL FIX OUR DEBT, OUR
    HEALTHCARE AND OUR INFRASTRUCTURE!
    POOR PATHETIC DEM MUS COM SOC DON’T BELONG IN AMERICA. THEY ARE ANTI AMERICA AND SHOULD BE STRIPED OF THERE CITIZENSHIP.
    THEY WILL PUSH THE GOVT TO CHEAT AND DECEIVE OUR CITIZENS UNTIL OUR GOOD GOVT
    PUTS THERE FOOT DOWN AND ARRESTS ALL OF THEM.
    WE MUST DO IT OUR WILL WILL SPEND THE FUTURE FIGHTING WITH THEM.
    PULL THE ‘BANDAID’ OFF SWIFTLY. WE ARE CAPITALIST, FOLLOW CONSTITUTION AND GOD.
    THEY DON’T …..BYE BYE.

  27. All these new Communist inspired laws are not acceptable in our Republic!?? Real Americans need to stand up now and stop the insanity. There is no legal ground for preventing Trump or any other candidate’s tax records to be presented for any election. It time to sue and or arrest any officials who suddenly think they are above the laws as laid out in the Constitution. I have not heard one word about Hillary or the other dozens of Democrats running to present their tax records. If the American people want such a law it will take a 3/4 majority to pass it by amending the Constitution..

    • Michael– Please explain what these disclosure laws have to do with “communism”. During the days of soviet communism, candidates who ran for office (it was always a single slate of candidates with no opponents) were required to disclosed nothing.

  28. OKAY – SO ALL SUCH STATES IN TREASONOUS ANARCHY INVITING IN FED. TROOPS > HAVE THEIR *BALLOTS REMOVED* FROM THE ELECTION! DISQUALIFIED ALL TOGETHER !!!

  29. Question, would this law stop a person from “writing in” a person for President? I mean my State of Missouri would never pass this law, but if I did live in one of those States, I would write in Donald J. Trump’s name for President. But also the other thing is that requirements for President are written into the Constitution, and any changes would require a Constitutional Amendment. I really don’t think that a State law, can have an effect on requirements for President.

  30. States have always required candidates for public office to make disclosures. The voters have the right to know whom they are voting for. if a candidate has something to hide, he shouldn’t be running for public office.

    • Well then let’s see them all. I’ve never heard of this law. If this were the law, wouldn’t President Trump have to show them to run?
      I’d like to see everyone’s beginning wealth and their wealth at the end of service. How many go in poor and come out rich. Everyone should be more concerned about that. We already know that President Trump is rich.

  31. Michael– Please explain what these disclosure laws have to do with “communism”. During the days of soviet communism, candidates who ran for office (it was always a single slate of candidates with no opponents) were required to disclosed nothing.

  32. those idiots try to pass that in my state [yeah, I got lucky my state is on the hit list] I will vote to impeach the idiot democrats in my that are trying to do this

  33. America’s new Nazi party are pushing their Evil and deadly agenda.How Stupid will the so called Democrat voters be.Hell is waiting for them.

  34. The liberal left democrats are really asking for trouble. The bough can only hold so much weight before it breaks. They will rue the day when it does. I see democratic blood in the streets. Maybe at this point in time, this country needs a bit of blood letting….really getting tired of their bullshit

  35. The next time i am in a confined area with women, I have to remember “hair sniffing”is perfectly acceptable;e to the whack jobs in the DNC, is it confined to head hair only???

  36. Try living in the Socialist Republic of California, just got rid of a progressive socialist Governor and replaced it with a total Soviet, crap producing tax Rodent.

  37. NeverTRUMP politicians are trying to hostage 14 of our US States to Keep President TRUMP off the 2020 Ballot

    This neverTRUMP harassment needs to be a Federal Criminal with their death sentence connected.

    If they’re able to mplement this idea successfully that we would turn this into an

    actual barrier to the ballot is outrageous, partisan, and anti-democratic.

    the Democrats haven’t just become that type of hateful corrupt political party

    they’ve that deviously hateful since they were founded in 1825

    and the demoncratic kkk were well funtioning before their 1865 founding

    and Robert Byrd/former kkk grand dragon was the demoncrat last publicly proclaiming US Elected Congressional

    but their are still other kkk/islamic terrorist power in over 50% of US Lawmaking powers

    and thats a fact, they are rightful called the unAmerican deep state

    whom speak and live like US citizens and they’re NOT whatsoever

    that’s also a fact, but WE US citizens aren’t supposed to know that.

  38. John , I know what you mean. The Demonuts are changing things to fit their Agenda and it will come back to bite them. Have you noticed How they get by with things that we would get buried for ? Some How we have 2 sets of Rules. We Need to start standing up and fighting back. Instead we let them get by with things..Just isn’t Right !!
    I have never seen so much disgusting things being done by the Democrats.
    I Will tell you this , All the Democrats that I know are totally disgusted with their Party and have or are changing. Everyone of them tell me that , The Democrats Need to get over the Fact that President Trump won! Plus, the fact he has done every thing he can to Help our Country. Also , He WAS Elected BY The People and they Need to start showing him some Respect !!
    The way they ( Democrats are acting is only because they are Jealous and Have a Hard time believing that they were beat !!!! ) 😉

    I love the Fact that Trump wasn’t a ” Career Politician ” and Beat them !!
    That’s what we needed.

    IF the Ballots Don’t have President Trumps name on it. Make sure to ” WRITE ” his name in Caps!! That’s one way to get Past the Demonuts !

    PRESIDENT TRUMP 2020

    GET THE WALL UP AND SEND ALL ILLEGALS BACK !!!!
