Mention amending the Constitution (to stipulate that marriage is between a man and a woman) and you will hear a collective gasp from the left. My God! Those evil Republicans do not respect this sacred piece of paper. How could you amend the Constitution and take away State’s rights, this would be the worst thing since prohibition…
YET, it is these very same people that are STILL saying that Bush stole the 2000 election. Beyond just saying, “Get over it”; we have to force these people to be intellectually honest. It is a Constitutional directive that our President is elected based on the votes of an electoral college (the word ‘college’ is not actually used-for you sticklers out there)…This is something that was written into the Constitution by our founding fathers.
The purpose of a representative democracy is to protect smaller states and keep them politically viable. If the election was purely a popular vote the candidates could focus solely on states like
NEVER before in the history of Presidential politics has a candidate sued over the outcome of an election. In 1960 when Nixon ran against JFK there was overwhelming evidence that election fraud had taken place (especially in
I am not bringing this up to argue and rehash election results or the mechanically -challenged people who can’t operate a hole punch in Florida (and if Bush and Gore were both punched on the same ticket- who is to say they were Gore’s votes –I’ve never gotten that). I am bringing this up to show the inconsistency of the left. Almost four years later I still hear some referencing the ‘stolen’ election. If you insist on calling this a stolen election -- you are obviously disregarding our Constitution –therefore you can have no problem with amending it to reflect the will of the majority of Americans…
Note to Pollsters and Wishful Thinkers:
I actually got selected to do a Zogby poll the other day and when asked the question “Do you think that the country is going in the right direction?” I said “No.”
I hear pollsters and DNC talking heads on the news touting the “wrong direction” poll results. What the question doesn’t ask is “Why?”
Oh, why you ask?
Because of the division in this country (that we now know was caused by Al Gore), because activist judges are over-riding the votes of the people counted through referendums, and because the ACLU is slowly undermining all that was good in this country and turning us into a secular shell of what we once were.
So don’t get too excited when you read these polls, because I am sure that I am not the only one in the country that feels the ‘wrong direction’ has nothing to do with George W. Bush.
