The Supreme Court's Colorado ballot case reveals the deception beneath conservatives' assertions of textualism.  

with rejecting the Colorado Supreme Court's decision to remove Donald Trump from the ballot,  

the Supreme Court simply avoided its duties and buried Section 3 of the 14th Amendment with about six feet of concrete.  

Knowing that Congress will do little before the election, if at all, the court ruled that the Section was not "self-executing"—Congress would need to adopt rules.  

It is crucial to note that the court majority might have ended at the point on which the whole bench agreed unanimously: a state cannot enforce this rule against federal candidates.  

They also correctly dismissed Trump's ridiculous arguments that the president is not "an officer of the United States" and does not swear an oath to "support" the Constitution.  

However, the Court majority just dropped the entire thing into the lap of a divided Congress, assuring it will never apply to Donald Trump.   

This was unnecessary, and it was encouraging to see four justices—Sotomayor, Kagan, Barrett, and Jackson—object to that aspect of the decision.
