NC Judge throws out two voter-approved Constitutional Amendments
« on: February 26, 2019, 05:10:33 AM »
One of the amendments was to implement a voter ID requirement, and the other was a cap on the state income tax rate.

Quote
The North Carolina General Assembly is so gerrymandered that its members don’t truly represent the people of the state and thus should never have proposed constitutional amendments in the first place, Wake County Superior Court Judge G. Bryan Collins wrote in his ruling that was issued late Friday afternoon.

“An illegally constituted General Assembly does not represent the people of North Carolina and is therefore not empowered to pass legislation that would amend the state’s constitution,” he wrote.

Regardless of what this County Judge thinks, these Amendments passed statewide with 55.5% and 57% approval.

And, as usual, when it comes to Voter ID, the NAACP is up to its neck in this crap.

At what point do non democratic means get used to get rid of undemocratic judges?

Any county Sheriff worth his Constitutional Oath would arrest this judge & haul him off the bench.

If not...I suggest a Sons of Liberty war-party and a warning for other would-be fascists!
Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*

This tyranny only stands because the people are allowing it to stand. Tyrants should be hung.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

- Thomas Jefferson
