If Gore Steals
Enough Votes, What's Next?
FrisaIt seems likely that Gore and
his goons could well steal enough votes to overtake the legitimate lead
won by George W. Bush three times thus far: on Election Day, with the
machine recount, and also with the portion of absentee ballots certified
Nov. 24, 2000
And the deck is stacked.
Partisan Democrat canvassing boards are "conducting" the manual
"recounts," and whenever they believe there will not be enough "new" votes
harvested, they simply change the rules.
In Palm Beach County, it has been illegal for more than 10 years to
count indented, dimpled ballots. So they changed the rules ex post
facto – after the fact.
This is like one team moving the goal line during a football game,
whenever their opponent is close to scoring.
How is this "determining" the will of the people?
It is not; it is a partisan farce.
So, it is obvious that Gore will easily manufacture enough bogus votes
in his quest to take the election away, ironically, from the very people
whose will he has falsely claimed to support.
No surprise there, he does it repeatedly.
The question is, what will happen next and what options remain?
As referenced here on several occasions, the remedies available are
administrative, legislative and legal.
• The secretary of state can still certify the previous total results
now, as clearly required by Florida law, the court ruling
notwithstanding. Or she can certify those totals after 5 p.m. on Sunday.
As an independently elected executive officeholder – on a coequal basis
with the judiciary – she certainly would be justified to do so given the
blatant and obvious overreaching by the state Supreme Court. Another
option, as suggested by Chris Ruddy of NewsMax, would be to hold off
certification until the U.S. Supreme Court rules. Contact Florida
Secretary of State Katherine Harris: email@example.com.
• The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has invited further motions in
the action previously brought by plaintiffs regarding the conduct of the
Florida election. Given the court’s ruling, both equal protection and due
process claims are now ripe for federal adjudication. A recent Alabama
case is on point and is compelling precedent for such action. The U.S.
Supreme Court has just agreed to hear this Bush appeal on constitutional
grounds, with a hearing scheduled for December 1st.
• The Florida Legislature retains the constitutional prerogative to
select its state’s presidential electors. It can still act to fulfill this
responsibility, especially given the tainted process exhibited so
dramatically in numerous instances of highly questionable practices.
Speaker of the Florida House of Reps Tom Feeney announced that the
legislature is weighing its options for action in light of the blatant
disregard for the law in the ruling by the Florida Supreme Court. Contact
the Florida Speaker Tom Feeney: firstname.lastname@example.org.
• The Palm Beach County Circuit Court should be petitioned to reopen
its determination issued on Wednesday with regard to liberalizing the
standards used in reviewing ballots in the manual count. The Gore lawyers
fraudulently misrepresented an Illinois Supreme Court ruling, erroneously
contending that case sanctioned the counting of "dimpled" ballots. This
claim was a lie. To the contrary, the Illinois trial court ruled that such
ballots would not be counted, and they were not.
•Political pressure must continue to be mounted, and on an increased
basis. Sell-out Sen. Joe Lieberman has today called such activity "rule of
the mob" in an effort to undercut, you guessed it, the will of the people.
What unmitigated gall! This from the crowd that only knows manufactured
demonstrations organized by union bosses and the likes of rabble-rousers
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
What this shows is that Democrats and their left-wing chorus in the
media can’t stand it when average citizens take the time to make their
voices heard in peaceful, public gatherings.
That is why it is so very important to keep up the pressure. The outcry
is being heard; we must not be intimidated.
