It can be difficult when it comes to any task that someone can think of if one person is trying to get accomplished. Say for example you are trying to lift a couch into a moving van.
If it is just one person trying to do it, that can be pretty damned hard. If you get another person, it can be a little bit easier.
However, if you get to the point where you have so many people helping that you can’t count them anymore, then lifting that couch becomes about as easy as lifting a newspaper.
Seventeen red states have banded together in support of a lawsuit initiated by Texas against four key battleground states: Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, for violating election laws.
The GOP Times reported earlier today that the Attorney General of Arkansas pledged to support the Texas lawsuit. Now, Missouri has led the charge with an official document, bringing seventeen red states in total to sign on. The document has been filed with the Supreme Court.
According to the Daily Wire, “Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia joined with Missouri to file an amicus brief supporting Texas.”
The purpose of the lawsuit is to prevent the four battleground states from voting in the Electoral College, and asserts that the elections in these states were illegitimate because they violated election laws in the process.
“First, the States have a strong interest in safeguarding the separation of powers among state actors in the regulation of Presidential elections. Second, amici States have a strong interest in ensuring that the votes of their own citizens are not diluted by the unconstitutional administration of elections in other States. When non-legislative actors in other States encroach on the authority of the ‘Legislature thereof’ in that State to administer a Presidential election, they threaten the liberty, not just of their own citizens, but of every citizen of the United States who casts a lawful ballot in that election—including the citizens of amici States,” the amicus reads.
“Third, for similar reasons, amici States have a strong interest in safeguarding against fraud in voting by mail during Presidential elections,” the filing continues.
On Wednesday morning, President Trump announced his support for the lawsuit, indicating that the federal government plans to join these red states in supporting the lawsuit.
