Why I Groan Sometimes
The city of Kinston N.C. voted to do away with party affiliations in local elections, but the Federal Government decided that they can't do that.
I can think of several things wrong with this.
1) The Constitution does not recognize political parties and they are a pragmatic rather than legal structure that is outside the Constitution. I can't say that they are unconstitutional, but rather they are NON-constitutional. So what gives the government the need or right to enforce their existence?
2) Why does the Justice Department equate one party with one race? This is blatant racism and blatant partisanship.
3) As long as people are not denied the right to vote, what does it matter if a local jurisdiction wants to recognize parties or not?
4) And of course we need to look at the previous decisions by the unelected bureaucrat that made this decision. Sad to think that such people have any authority whatsoever.
