(TargetLiberty.org) – GOP ex-presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy filed an amicus brief at the Supreme Court to express his support for former President Donald Trump who is fighting against the state decision that would keep him off the primary ballot.

In the filing, Ramaswamy pointed out that Trump’s political opponents have been trying to get him off the ballot as they are scared that they won’t be able to defeat him in an election. Ramaswamy further pointed out that the “distress” of having to face an opponent in an election is not enough reason for them to get disqualified under the 14th Amendment’s “insurrection clause.” He added that if the Supreme Court affirmed the decision made by the Colorado Supreme Court, then the effects would be far greater than simply determining Trump’s eligibility.

As he pointed out, if the Court approves of the Section 3 interpretation used by the state’s supreme court then it would “warp incentives” both for decisions in states and voters. This would also place state supreme court justices and secretaries of state on a path where they will simply decide that a candidate is ineligible in the election because they disfavor them.

Voters on the other hand will get the message that they can look through the material presented by a campaign manager and try to file Section 3 challenges based on the findings.

For now, the justices have put out an administrative state that orders that Trump’s name be included in the ballot in Colorado until they reach a decision on the case.
