I take exception to this wording in the two court cases ...
Where is THIS in the first amendment?
The right to associate?
“The Republican case was brought in Montana, where the GOP controls the legislature. The Democratic case is in Hawaii, where the Democratic Party controls the legislature. In both cases, the parties argue that allowing nonpartisan voters to participate in their primaries violates their First Amendment right not to associate.”
Whether in our favor or not, we have got to stop giving The Supreme Court the task of reinterpretation of the constitution. It’s interpretation should be strict. It’s addition of words must come by ”hard process”.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
