Obama & McCain miss Texas filing deadline - Barr files suit

Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party's nominee for president, has filed a lawsuit in Texas demanding Senators John McCain and Barack Obama be removed from the ballot after they missed the official filing deadline.

A 2006 Texas Supreme Court decision ruled that state laws "does not allow political parties or candidates to ignore statutory deadlines."

Bruce adds:

...Yeah, we'll see how far this suit gets. Because my friends, "might now makes right," and "we are now a nation of men, not of laws."

The Republic Is Dead, "Long Live" The Empire.

I, for one, welcome our new socialist overlords.
