I read this too, and pretty much agree with it. Sometimes after so many losses, some in their party may want them to go away...like Sarah Palin too.

First you claim there is not due process:

Then I said they have due process via appeals to the courts.

Then you....make no sense.

They also picked Biden. Georgia isn’t a blue state. What I said is that it isn’t really a red state either. A red state (like Texas), republicans win even when the candidate is a joke. Ken Paxton is seen as a “joke” and won.

The people in texas that ever supported slavery have mostly been dead for over 100 years. This is seriously your best comparison?

No not my best, I agree.

How about this as an example of people being able to change their beliefs:
https://www.pbs.org/independentlens/...fe-after-hate/

How about another comparison: Do you still believe the US Supreme Court can overturn anything in the US constitution?

(remember your immigration belief and children of immigrants being born in the US are US citizens as stated in the 14th Amendment?)

If the Supreme Court determines that the 14th amendment has nothing to do with birthright citizenship then yes, they sure can.

Not quite sure what you are getting at here but let me point out that many parts of the Constitution applies to people in the US, citizens or not. https://www.maniatislawoffice.com/bl...tional-rights/

Lol!

Then you believe the SC can overturn the 2nd amendment then and say it applies only to 1700's muskets!
You believe the SC can say that the 13th amendment is wrong and overturn it.
You believe the SC can say that the 19th amendment only applies to straight women, and any L/B/Q/T cannot vote.
You believe the SC can overturn the 21st amendment and make alcohol illegal again.

LOL!

Still did not answer my question. But didn't expect you to as you cannot comprehend that people are allowed to change their minds on topics and beliefs.
