I sit here and write this Iím absorbing how the Democrat-appointed
Florida Supreme Court ruled. Iím
sitting here in disbelief how these seven men and women not only wore
the robes of the judicial branch, but also assumed the powers of the
executive and legislative branches.
supposed independent judges rewrote legislation by imposing new
deadlines that supersede the current law which require the election to
be certified within one week of the election.
They also ordered the executive branch to follow their new
W. Bush won this election. He
won more legally cast votes than Al Gore.
Period. Gore and
his Democrat cronies are stealing this election from the duly elected
will never recognize Al Gore as a legitimate president.
He will have won because of unreliable, inherently flawed and
biased hand counts where the possibility of corruption is incredibly
high. (Isnít nice to know the total needed to win while youíre
counting the votes?) He
is no better than a common thief stealing what he covets.
must add that if Gore won this election fair and square at the ballot
box I would not have a leg to stand.
I would have to fight my battles with him on the policy
battlefield. Although I
despise Gore because of his socialist philosophy I understand that he
would have been the constitutionally elected leader of our country.
Gore did not win this election at the ballot box (perhaps because his
supporters were too stupid to read the ballot correctly).
If he wins (and the election isnít over yet) it will be
because of the judicial activism of the Democrat-appointed Florida
courts. (Let this be a
lesson to Senate Republicans that judicial appointments do matter.)
continually references the rights of the voter.
If I werenít so outraged, Iím not sure I could contain my
laughter. He continually
relies on the argument that he wants to protect the rights of the
voter. Yet, I will
guarantee that once he assumes office he will ignore every God-given
right we have as Americans. This
is the same man who doesnít believe in individual property rights.
He doesnít respect the right to life.
He had an orchestrated campaign to deny the rights of overseas
military personnel to vote. His
campaign surrogates began digging up dirt on Bush electors of
different states to blackmail them into voting for him similar to the
impeachment unsuccessful blackmail attempts.
doesnít believe that father knows best, but government does.
He is a hypocrite.
Al Gore is able to steal this election successfully he will have done
it with the help of the best-paid lawyers in the country.
Remember Goreís attorney David Bois is this same man who
broke up one of the most successful companies in Americaís history.
Should we really accept Goreís arguments to protect rights?
what of his post-partisan court address?
wants us to come together as one nation?
This sounds like Rodney Kingís pathetic plea for everyone to
ďget along.Ē This is
the mantra of the Democrats. Why
do we have to get along? What
is the problem with division? We
are a country of different opinions, of different beliefs.
Americans should reject this socialist notion that we should
all understand and respect everyoneís beliefs even when they are not
based on principle, logic and individual rights.
asks us to respect our democracy?
He wants us to accept and respect the feely expressed will of
the people. Thatís almost laughable.
He is pulling out all the stops to steal this election. Can he be serious? Democracy
is not the ends. Democracy
is the only means for capitalism to succeed.
know Iíll never be considered a serious columnist.
I donít shave off the rough edges.
I donít cloak my feelings behind flowery language of
Washington politicese. I
say what I feel and I do my best to base my arguments on a consistent,
principled philosophy on the rule of law and individual rights.
tonight I am pissed.
hope that Republicans in the Florida counties do their best to slow
down this process. And if
the courts of Florida continue to obey their Democratic masters and
allow dimples (dimples? Could
this be as Chris Matthews called it the Shirley Temple Election?) to
determine this election, I encourage George W. Bush to use every legal
mechanism to win the important 25 electoral votes.
includes requesting the Florida legislature to vote for a new slate of
electors as the U.S. Constitution allows.
Join the conversation about the election...
