Re: “UPDATE: Supreme outrage: Is there a line of attack on court invalidation of pot measure?

As much as I dislike Trump, I guarantee you that if someone decided to just remove him from the ballot after voting has already started (and oh, you don't get to go back and change your vote to someone else, you just don't get a say), I would be having a meltdown. This is not right. Maybe the elections are all rigged anyway and I'm delusional to think my voice makes a bit of difference. But at least keep up the appearance of a democracy, for crying out loud! This is voter suppression, plain and simple. Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I've always assumed that the purpose of petitions is to gauge the amount of people interested in supporting an amendment or law. If less than 8% of the population is willing to sign the petition, it isn't really worth anyone's time or effort to move forward. Considering that 48% of Arkansans voted for medical marijuana in the 2012 election, I am pretty sure AT LEAST 8% are in favor of issue 7. It's on the ballot. Rather than searching for a reason to remove it, let the people be heard. If it doesn't pass because the votes weren't there, so be it. But stop nit picking and let it go to the vote. While the law may be being followed (and that's debatable), the spirit of the law certainly is not. We are not idiots. We see this for what it is. Those who have made these poor decisions and have (once again) turned our state into a horrible joke, will be held accountable at re-election time. We are watching and waiting to have your heads on the proverbial platter, assuming of course that you don't find a way to disqualify our votes then as well.
