Why do you assume the US Supreme Court won't do the right thing.
Have you lost faith in the U.S. Constitution
It needs no action by the US Senate at all.
U.S. Constitution Amendment 14 Sec 3 (1868)
Section 3. 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.
Answering someone's questions is easy. Watch me do it:
Why do you assume the US Supreme Court won't do the right thing. Have you lost faith in the U.S. Constitution
No I haven't. Now...where, oh where, is there anything that says the SCOTUS can decide to remove a Senator? And why do you keep citing the 14th Amendment without noticing Sec 5? It reads: "The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article." SCOTUS jurisdiction would seem to contradict section 5...can you cite law otherwise?
Again, show me proof where I said they were traitors?
I did that in post 537. The evidence I offered is all direct quotes. Saying you haven't done it is like a guy saying, "I didn't call your Mom a prostitute, I just said she has sex with strange men and charges them for it."
I have no direct source, only speculation...but I advanced my speculation in terms that made it clear it was speculation. As great as the Swiftees were (and I was on board early) there is no way that:
1. 48% of the American people thought, "Well, he's a traitorous coward, but I like him for President"
2. There weren't any swing voters thinking "I think that swift boat stuff is a smear job, but that Kerry guy is an idiot. I'll vote for Bush."
So that easily adds up to over 50% of the electorate that would look dimly on an effort to remove Kerry.
There, now I've shown you how to answer questions. Am I going to get more skyscraper blab, or are you going to show me the respect I deserve as an American fighting man?
