Thanks for posting this. One thing worth noting about the Eastman memo on how to steal the election for Trump is that any crimes it suggests committing would appear to be state level crimes where state legislatures violate their own state laws to steal electoral votes for Trump, contradicting applicable state law that says that the state elections should determine the electors.

In other words, there seems to be no federally protected right for citizens to vote for president that would be denied by this GOP scheme to steal the presidential election. As far as I know, the federal voting rights act cases all relate to congressional elections, where there is a federally protected right to vote for the applicable federal office.

If all this is correct, then the Eastman memo highlights a defect in the status quo that should be remedied with a constitutional amendment to secure the direct election of the president.

re: #1 EPR-radar

Technically, there is no right to vote for president. We vote for electors (and that’s just because that is the manner state legislatures have chosen for picking electors). It’s the electors who actually vote for President and Vice President.

I’m actually surprised some state legislator somewhere hasn’t floated the idea of not having a presidential election in their state in 2024. Most likely it’s because they know if they did, they would be run out of office on a rail.

Memories of being under the “tutelage” of Milton Friedman at the University of Chicago which turned me against him and his “Chicago Boys” who fucked up Chile.

Great post, excellent context for what’s going on now. (I added an image to it.)

Even a single spelling mistake can have a significant impact on your grades. Taking the time to carefully review your work to eliminate any errors can help you to get the grades that you really deserve for your writing.
