Here We Go Again!
15, 2003 the 9th Circuit (aka circus) Court decided that the people of California
me to explain.
of all the citizens of California had by the prescribed percent allowed in the recall provision of the California State Constitution,
decided that a recall was in order. THAT did not sit well with the democrats and their very liberal allies on the bench.
a Judgment handed down by the by three liberal activist judges two of whom were appointed by former President Clinton, and
one by former President Carter, they pushed back the Re-call election in that state from October 07, until sometime in March.
is partial text of that decision:
would be remiss if we did not observe that this is a critical time in our nations history when we are attempting to persuade
the people of other nations of the value of free and open elections. Thus we are especially mindful of the need to demonstrate
our commitment to the elections held fairly, free of chaos, with each citizen assured that his or her vote will be counted,
and with each vote entitled to the equal weight. A short postponement of the election will accomplish those aims and reinforce
our national commitment to democracy."
should make a lot of Americans angry. Since when is legislation decided from the bench? What is the reason for this decision?
Well the Democrats, who are no doubt behind this, feel that they simply cannot win in this re-call. So they are trying again
to gain in the courts what they cant gain in the arena of ideas or at the ballot box.
decision was based on the fact that the ballots are similar in type to the ones used in Florida, during the Presidential elections
of 2000. However these same ballots were used to ELECT Governor Davis, and most
of the California legislature in 2002. Why are they so horrid now? It has been reported that they have a 2 percent error rate
wherein the more modern voting machines have only a 1 percent error. Ergo that is simply not fair. What I have not been able
to find out is which of these counties in California have the old ballots and which have the more modern versions. It would
not surprise me to find that the former were located in more heavily democratic counties. But of course that is speculation.
also troubles me here is that these Judges, are basically saying that the voters are to stupid to figure this out, and that
the government needs to help them to vote. This in itself to me is discriminatory. It
demeans the intelligence of the voters of California.
is also noted by this writer that a delay until March would put this election right around the time of the Democratic Primary
in that state, when democratic voter turnout would surely be larger. What a co-incidence!
All this being said, I feel that the President could do better in checking his own party, because they seem to be as
big on Big Government as the Liberals and the Democratic Party that they have come to dominate.
