But that was not enough for our California Big Brother overlords. Last year they passed the criminal "top two" system that effectively bans independent candidates and all four California opposition parties from all future general election ballots. After all, too many choices and strange ideas just confuses voters.
Now part of the phony top two system will be reviewed by a judge. But only part. It appears it is very, very legal to ban political parties from general election ballots. Our Founding Fathers would be so proud.

U.S. District Court Judge Otis Wright will hear oral arguments in Chamness v Bowen on June 13, Monday, in Los Angeles. This is the lawsuit that challenges two particular details of California’s top-two system: (1) the discriminatory policy on partisan labels on ballots; and (2) and the provision that says that even though write-in space is printed on ballots, no write-ins can be counted for Congress or state office in general elections.
