Supreme Court Deals BRUTAL Blow to Democrat “Ballot Harvesters” in Key Battleground State

Arizona’s decision to outlaw so-called “ballot harvesting” during the 2016 election will stand, according to a Supreme Court decision handed down this weekend.

The Daily Caller reported that a 9th Circuit Court decision striking down an Arizona law banning the practice — which involves a third party collecting absentee ballots and turning them in to election officials — was reversed on appeal to the Supreme Court.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeal — widely considered the most liberal circuit court — originally abrogated the law in a 6-5 decision handed down Friday. However, Justice Anthony Kennedy, responsible for hearing emergency petitions from that court, agreed to pass the matter on to the full Supreme Court.

After that hearing, according to SCOTUSblog, the court agreed to stay the 9th Circuit’s decision, effectively upholding the law through Tuesday’s election.

In its arguments, The state of Arizona leaned heavily on a 2006 decision, Purcell v. Gonzalez, which affirmed, according to SCOTUSblog, that “as an election draws nearer, courts should be more reluctant to order changes to voting laws, because of the possibility that doing so will cause voter confusion and incentives not to go to the polls.”

In response to liberal groups’ claim that the law violated the Voting Rights Act and the Constitution, it was noted that no fewer than 26 other states outlaw the practice, with 13 declaring it a felony.

Apparently the Supreme Court agreed with with the arguments, which means that ballot harvesting — a prima facie voter fraud risk — is likely not to continue in Arizona, a battleground state where Republican Donald Trump is leading in early voting.

The Supreme Court’s stay included no comment, so there was no way of knowing what justices, if any, dissented and supported the 9th Circuit.

The fact that anyone even thought the practice was worth defending should tell you a great deal about the mindset of the average liberal: Any regulation that makes voting harder than just saying “yea” or “nay” — even regulations concerning whether the person is eligible to vote — is somehow discriminatory. Asking for ID is systemic oppression. Banning ballot harvesting is racism.

For that matter, why exactly is “ballot harvesting” necessary? Do we now, as a people, lack the ability to put a stamp on a ballot and get it to a mailbox? Mike Judge’s 2006 movie “Idiocracy” is often invoked in diatribes against the Trump campaign, but it seems more aptly applied against the left. They believe that people who cannot figure out how the postal system operates are somehow disenfranchised.

Most Americans disagree, which is going to make things hard for the liberal agenda. That doesn’t mean they’re going to stop trying, and that’s why we need to be strict and consistent in our opposition to it. Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter if you agree.
