Fourth Circuit Will Hear Virginia Case on Out-of-State Circulators During the Week of March 19-22, 2013

Published on December 19, 2012, by in General.

The Fourth Circuit has tentatively set the oral argument in Libertarian Party of Virginia v Judd for the week of March 19-22, 2013. This is the case that challenges Virginia’s ban on out-of-state circulators. The U.S. District Court had struck down the law and the state is appealing.

    People need to file law suits against the other states still have out-of-state petitioner bans. I’m talking about states like New York, Pennsylvania, Maine (only applies to initiative & referendum), North Dakota (only applies to initiative & referendum), and Montana (I think it only applies to initiative & referendum).

    These “laws” are blatantly unconstitutional, plus they make ballot access more difficult than it would be otherwise.

    Each sovereign State in the Union happens to be a sovereign NATION-STATE.

    1783 Peace Treaty
    1787 Const Art. VII

    i.e. the U.S.A. govt is a *super-national* govt — i.e. the *United* in the U.S.A. — based on the United States of the Netherlands, and various European leagues of govts in the Middle Ages — with LIMITED powers for the benefit of all of the People in the several States.

    Thus – State electors — everybody else is from another dimension.

    Sorry – the 1st Amdt has ZERO to do with ballot access – regardless of ALL of the bad/corrupt JUNK opinions by SCOTUS since 1968.

    See the book – Sources of Our Liberties edited by Richard L. Perry (ABA, 1959) — ZERO mention of any ballot access in it — regarding ANY of Amdts 1 to 8.

    Demo Rep, that’s actually the United Provinces of the Netherlands. But you’re correct, it was a model for the United States of America. In fact, some of the thoughts in the American Revolution are remarkably similar to the beginning of the 1581 Oath of Abjuration.
