Use a process of elimination:
There are only two (2) classes of citizens
under American law, and all voter registration
forms which we have examined make no mention
of state Citizens, or "_C_itizens of the United
States" [sic]. With very little variation, those
forms are worded so that courts will assign
the registrant to one, and only one, class
of citizens -- federal citizens!
That has been my consistent observation,
without any exceptions, for the past 8 years.
And, that was one of the main reasons why Gilbertson
attempted to convene a DCUS -- to adjudicate
the constitutionality of those voter registration
forms, in Minnesota state, and by logical
extension, in all other 49 states.
Convening a 3-judge panel would have made
the decisions of that panel all the more
authoritative (if we are ever allowed to
get that far).
I believe it is high time that activists
around the country begin to petition county
courts for declaratory judgments on this point.
If there are two classes of citizens, then
to which class(es) is a voter registrant assigned
by any given State of the Union? This is a
very direct and straightforward matter on
which to get a declaratory judgment.
