I may never recover.
A court has refused to step into a dispute between Dennis Kucinich and the Texas Democratic Party over their "loyalty oath".
The court refused to step into a dispute between Kucinich and the Texas Democratic Party over a loyalty oath all candidates must sign to make the ballot.
Kucinich and singer-supporter Willie Nelson objected to the party oath that a presidential candidate must "fully support" the party's eventual nominee. Kucinich crossed out the oath when he filed for a spot on the primary ballot.
A federal judge in Austin ruled against Kucinich last week. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel ruled the state party has the right to require the oath. Kucinich and Nelson argued it violated Kucinich's First Amendment right to free speech.
I may not like Dennis Kucinich nor agree with him on any political issue but I have to agree here that should he not be the Democratic nominee of choice for the presidential election, he should have the right to vote or support or not support anybody he wishes to in the elections.
Since when does any party have the right to take a persons right to free speech and choice away from them?
