re: I still don’t get the “No standing” ruling

But that's a two way street, right?. Let's say Washington or California decides that voter ID's are evil....should they have standing to sue states with voter ID laws?


The law isn't the question, ultimately. It's the state's refusal to play by their own rules that is at issue.

California says no ID. Fine, their assembly passes law, gov hair gel signs it. Great. But they don't have standing to sue Alabama for requiring ID, and enforcing it. Now, if Alabama passes a law that says only people wearing green on election day are allowed to vote, and California has suspicion (or proof) that redshirts were voting on election day, then California absolutely could and should sue Alabama for not enforcing its own laws.

The states enter into this federal union together with a reasonable understanding of what each state's rules are, in no small part because those rules are open and public record. When those get ignored, and directly impact other states (as in selecting the executive), then the only recourse (per Constitution)is to bring that case to the Supreme Court.

You in Louisiana have no standing to file a lawsuit against another state for them not enforcing their own election law.
In a state election that would be apropos. In a national election, it's bull shite.

The VRA, Senatorial election rather than Governor appointment, free-fair-and-unrigged elections etc., are requisite fixtures of the national electoral landscape. Meaning the impact in one impacts others. A rigged result in states electing a candidate poorly suited for other states in turn directly affects all states.

SCOTUS refusal to hear election cases in which states clearly violated their own Constitutions was despicable. More so as they've now elected to hear just such a case this Fall.

That’s the thing though, it’s their rules.

It’s not Texas or the SCOTUS job to interpret Penn State Law.

I am a practicing attorney and I will spend the rest of my life trying to make it make sense.

scotus’s refusal to hear Texas v Penn was the biggest dereliction of a constitutional duty ever. There was no other legal forum. The actions of the Democrat party in swing states undermined federalism, the electoral process and the foundation of the USG.

There is no other jurisdiction available to decide a dispute btwn the states. The last time there was a dispute btwn the states with no forum to resolve - we resolved it by decimating our own population.

If there is no court to turn to - it’s Hatfields and McCoys.

I think Chicken shite Roberta got ACB and Kav to punt by promising they could get rid of Roe. And then that chicken shite tried to water it down anyway.

January 6 rioters who were not planted by the federal government are the result of being denied a forum for the redress of grievances. I blame Roberta for everything that followed.

The actions of one state resulted in consequences that affected another state, that’s my simplistic view.

And since the affected state had no standings it seems with that precedent, that any state(s) should have no standing if another state wants to succeed from the U.S.

Probably a big leap but it seems to be the same logic for me.

That's why this national popular vote campaign is such a terrible idea. Your state just awards it's electoral votes to the popular winner. So yeah, if CA and NY just count illegal and fake votes it's not just a CA/NY problem. Idiots.

It is literally part of SCOTUS' job to regulate disputes between states. It's in the document that they're supposed to uphold.

Yes, SCOTUS has a vested interest, and authority, to require Penn to uphold Penn's own laws.

So how are states going to stop this nonsense in the future?

Neighboring states don't. The residents of any given state MUST be responsible for their OWN elections.

Texas has NO BUSINESS interfering in Missouri's elections, and Louisiana has not business interfering in Pennsylvania's elections.

If the residents of Illinois are content with elections that are "less secure" than the residents of Oklahoma might think appropriate, that is THEIR business, and not that of the Okies.

Federalism. Sometimes it cuts in your favor and sometimes not.

You have to find some constitutional ground and “dispute between states” isn’t it.

Tell that to the VRA.
Meanwhile, Moore v. Harper could speak to the issue this Fall.

What, pray tell, should you have Texas do when Pennsylvania acts in bad faith, and it directly impacts Texas?

Just say, "thems the breaks," even when Art 3 Sec 2 specifically says the SCOTUS is to mediate these disputes?Biden's energy policy, who is a direct result of Pennsylvania's failure to comply *with its own laws* abso-fricking-lutely impacts Texas.

I see that you disagree, which is fine. I'm just asking for what you think the remedy is.

No it is TX being negatively impacted by PA's unconstitutional corruption.

Citizens of that state can take action. Via litigation, elections, etc. But other states cannot.

They did. The courts refused those cases on standing as well.
