Quick thought

…one a bit too long for Twitter, so I’m stashing it here.  I’d like to see a law passed whereby no presidential candidate who had not qualified for the ballot on states totalling at least 270 electoral votes was allowed to be on any ballot.  The minimum threshold should be “theoretically capable of winning.”

That is all.

    1. Hmm. The constitutional argument is interesting, actually, seeing as how NONE of the current restrictions against ballot access in the various states are discussed in the Constitution. I’ll have to look up the legal basis for them at some point.


      1. Each state is responsible for their own elections. The federal government counts the electoral votes, but it is pretty much up to the states how these votes are created.
