What a great story (not really)
This is just a great bed time story one ending with "and they lived happily ever after">
Election Judge Wears Obama Cap While Checking in Voters in Obama’s Chicago Ward
lawsuit bait for violation of civil rights. Remember kiddies, ALL political speech is protected speech. Make’em choke on it.
So, you’re saying, even if in direct violation of voting regulations, specifically when the candidate’s policy echoed the message on the T-Shirt, he could have stood his ground and legally be able to vote?
WHY? SHOW ME A LAW SAYING THAT I CANNOT WEAR ANY SHIRT I WANT TO AND GO PLACE MY VOTE!
Me? I’d just take the shirt off and let them admire my 300+ lb body while I voted.
I figure that’s making their punishment fit the crime...
And your link is not loading, all I get is a bunch of popup crap
1) CONGRESS shall make no law ... but if the state wants to outlaw certain political speech or outlaw Episcopalians, that's OK: the Constitution doesn't block a state from doing that.
2) The First Amendment has been broadened, it's not aimed at Congress any more, and NO ONE can outlaw political speech -- so carrying a sign promoting a particular candidate into a polling place cannot be stopped.
But the situation we have to day is that there are 8742 laws and regulations which limit the freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and the right of free assembly -- and just about everyone things that's just dandy.
Rules for thee,but not for me.
That’s what it seems like in the USA since The Messiah arrived.
The lesson for me would be, whoever has as part of their platform, the elimination of that 2nd ammendment clause in the voting regs, would get my vote.
If I had money, I'd buy a couple of thousand cheap T shirts with 2nd ammendment slogans and pass them out free to any that will wear it to the poll.
Stand 100 ft (or whatever the range is) away from the poll, preferably on private property and give 'em away.
Instruct folks to wait until a dozen or so T shirt wearers are present, put 'em on .. and walk into the poll.
I guess you could boil my comment down to ... THIS IS BOOJIT !!!!
If the shirt simply quoted the supreme law of the land, the Constitution, then he has every right to wear it and to vote. The leftists want to make the Constitution “political” in the minds of citizens so they no longer think of it as the bedrock of our legal system. If they can convince the citizenry that the Constitution is “controversial” then the absolutely weaken its power to limit the elite political class. From your comments you seem to be falling right into their trap. So the question I have is: “Are you intellectually lazy this evening, just plain stupid, or a tool of the left?
No doubt they’ll hide behind the indecency statutes, saying that you aren’t allowed to have your shirt say swear words or anything indecent like that. To them, the constitution, and in particular the 2nd amendment, is indecent.
After seeing what was on his shirt, I tend to agree with you.
It wasn’t the words of the Second Amendment.
While voting in the 2012 election there was a guy wearing a t-shirt that said “Producer, not taker”. He was ordered to turn it inside out or leave. He pointed out to the election worker that it was not political. The guy said “We all know who you’re voting for.” This kind of crap must be stopped.
I’d go outside, grab a clump of mud, come back into the polling place, and throw the clump of mud at Obama’s ugly face.
I think I’ll get one to wear next time I am working the polls.
He should have put it on backwards and then said,
I wore my “Am I the Only Person on the Planet who didn’t get Guns from the ATF?” shirt once, but usually wear my Kalashnikitty Shirt when I go vote (deep in the heart of Texas).
And yes, I did wonder if the ATF Shirt would get noticed.
As pointed out in the video, he was violating the law. Good job by the elections folks. The dude can stand all day at the 100 foot line if he wants to campaign.
Back in 2004, Pete Coors ran for Colorado state senator.
I work at Coors, and wasn’t allowed to wear my Coors uniform hat to vote after I got off of work.
I voted absentee yesterday. A guy came in after us wearing a NRA ball cap. No-one said anything.
I love living out in the country!
“WHY? SHOW ME A LAW SAYING THAT I CANNOT WEAR ANY SHIRT I WANT TO AND GO PLACE MY VOTE!”
Texas Statute. Watch the video.
