As most of you know, the Colorado Supreme Court Decision ruled that former President Trump will not be allowed on the ballot for the upcoming election.
Well, sort of.
Before we go any further, here is a link to the ruling so you can read it yourself.
It’s easy to see why people are up in arms about the ruling after they read what was on page 10 of the decision.
“Therefore, to maintain the status quo pending any review by the US Supreme Court, we stay our ruling until January 4, 2024 (the day before the Secretary’s deadline to certify the content of the presidential primary ballot). If review is sought in the Supreme Court before the stay expires on January 4, 2024, then the stay shall remain in place, and the Secretary will continue to be required to include President Trump’s name on the 2024 presidential primary ballot, until the receipt of any order or mandate from the Supreme Court.”
In other words, the decision isn’t not immediately going into effect until it most certainly will be reviewed by the Supreme Court of the United States.
There’s also another portion of the decision on page 123, that is pretty interesting.
The judges on the court still seemed to be triggered over the 2016 election and claimed that the former President’s comments while on the campaign trail incited what took place on 1/6.
Reaction to the decision was as expected and even moderate progressives like RFK Jr. are aghast.
I’m not a Trump supporter (if I were, I wouldn’t be running against him!) But I want to beat him in a fair election, not because he was kicked off the ballot. Let the voters choose, not the courts! #Kennedy24

I pledge to withdraw from the Colorado GOP primary ballot until Trump is also allowed to be on the ballot, and I demand that Ron DeSantis, Chris Christie, and Nikki Haley do the same immediately – or else they are tacitly endorsing this illegal maneuver which will have disastrous… pic.twitter.com/qbpNf9L3ln
