The Washington State Senate passed a bill designed to prevent President Trump from being on the ballot in that state in 2020.  Since Trump declined to release his personal income tax forms (which is not required by federal law), the bill requires every candidate to have released five years’ worth of taxes to be on the ballot.  This is similar to bills being pushed by other blue states such as New Jersey and Illinois.

Although Washington’s Attorney General and Solicitor General claimed that the bill is “likely Constitutional” but would face a court challenge, Republican state Sen. Dale Righter said that it "clearly" is not Constitutional: “The Constitution lays out the qualifications to be a candidate for president. States aren’t allowed to add to those qualifications.”

Unfortunately, being told that a bill is clearly unconstitutional has seldom stopped Democrats from passing it.  Here’s my question, though: since these states are so solidly blue that they could actually pass a nakedly partisan bill like this, why are they worried about Trump being on the ballot?  Are they scared that the Democratic candidate will be such a far-left, socialist-sympathizing, open-borders-embracing, Green New Deal-hugging, tax-raising, economy-wrecking, job-destroying, America-hating nightmare that Trump could beat him/her/xir even in Washington State or Illinois?  Actually, that sounds like a fairly reasonable assumption.

On the other hand, I thought Democrats were all about “choice” and voters’ rights.  So they believe a woman’s “right to choose” extends even to killing her baby after it's born, but nobody in their state should have the right to vote for the incumbent President?  They think the right to vote is so sacred that it should even be given to illegal aliens and 16-year-old kids, but they’ll limit who you’re allowed to vote for to only the candidate of their party? 

Well, I guess if you want to turn America socialist, limiting the Presidential ballot to only one candidate is a standard part of the process.  I just figured they’d try to bring in the socialism first.

    Rumor has it that many of the key players in the Mueller investigation may have also played a key role in the sale of uranium (against our national interests) to the Russians
    during Hillary’s watch at the State Dept. Opening the possibility of bribes being paid to the aforementioned government officials. Any truth in that?

    Not sure how these liberals think they are correct. Clearly the agenda is to change our country into a world order Nation. We must be a true Republic as we were founded. Eastern Washington's votes are mostly Republicans. There electoral vote must count. Just sayin, I'm an immigrant!

    What is wrong with this country?! How can Democrats run rough shod over the other half of this country with no reprisal? Between blue state shenanigans like this and deep state control over our government, do conservatives have no recourse?

    Then we do not count that states vote in a federal election. Any state that can not guarantee a legal vote should not be counted.

    I was a resident of that state. The Democrat/Marxist party has taken over and instituting a Soviet satellite state in practice. I see a revolt in the making. It is trying to one up California and New York. It's governor and the city of Seattle, which controls the pocketbook will do anything to stop the will of the majority. This includes rewriting the laws and so Washington has become a rogue state. Go to Seattle and see what all the wasted millions have done. As a veteran I see a pathetic excuse and it should go back to being a territory with Federal marshalls monitoring everything
