As reported on Newsmax.com: "New Jersey's Democrat-dominated state Supreme Court today ruled in favor of disgraced Sen. Robert Torricelli's maneuver to remove his name from the ballot." "Two of those judges have contributed to Torricelli, a fact the pro-Democrat mainstream media is not trumpeting." [url]http://www.newsmax.com/showinsidecover.shtml?a=2002/10/2/180750[/url]

Well you know the republicans will take that to the US supreme court. But that might just piss some folks off towards the republicans out there. It is utter BS, It's like pulling a QB from another team about the 4th quarter... Time is gettin near guys, we need to email, mail, and fax our freinds, family, and congresscritters and get ready for the vote.

Fox news (Brit Hume) reported about the two justices having given money to toricelli (before they were appointed). He also mentioned the interesting fact that democrats are trying hard to get the very much alive toricelli off of the NJ ballot, but they are trying equally hard to keep the very much dead Mink ON the hawaii ballot. Crooked bastards.

I heard this was fully expected and it is likely SCOTUS will rule against them. However, if the Republicans bring a case, rest assured the media will liken it to the presidential election. The irony is the democrats have used to courts against conservatives for years, so this payback must leave an especially sour taste in their mouths. ha ha Payback's a bitch!

[b]HEAR-YE, HEAR-YE, LET IT BE KNOWN ACROSS THE LAND: [red]THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY DO NOT APPLY TO DEMOC[/RED]RATS[RED]!!! [/RED] SO SAYS THE NEW JERSEY SUPREME COURT, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2002.[/B] [i]"It is in the public interest and the general interest of the election laws to preserve the two-party system and to submit to the electorate ballot bearing the names of candidates of both major political parties as well as of all qualifying parties and groups," the court ruled in a unanimous decision. [/i] [B]BULLSHIT![/B] [PISSED] It's in the "general interest of the election laws" that there be a Democrat and Republican on the ballot?!?!? WHAT THE FUCK!?! This was a done-deal that was worked out with the NJ Supreme Court and the Democ[b]rats[/b] before Toricelli even announced. This is SO fucked up it's beyond belief. [pissed]

[/i] [b]So now, it's okay to wait 31 days before an election to name a candidate, as long as that candidate is a Democrat!! Why not 21 days? Why not 10 days? Why even have a primary election anymore? Why even have a general election anymore? What the fuck are ANY election laws for anymore? Why not just take an unannounced poll? Why does the candidate for New Jersey Senate even need to be from New Jersey anymore?? Why not have Bill Clinton run for Senate from New York AND New Jersey?? Who gives a fuck what the election laws or the Constitution says - what's important is that a DEMOCRAT gets on the ballot! Holy SHIT!!! THIS NATION IS A SCHIZOPHRENIC OLIGARCHY!!! God save this nation!!! [/B]

Theirs was the first report on the ruling. It's possible that they didn't know. The sick part of it is that now every candidate can be substituted if they feel their poll numbers don't add up to victory. Consider this - based on this ruling, [b]Bill Clinton[/b] could be a candidate for Senator from NJ as long as he establishes residence between the time he is elected and takes the oath of office.

[b]FUCK this PISSES ME OFF!!!![/b] Do you think the Green Party or the Libertarian Party or any Independant candidate would be treated this way by the so-called "impartial, unbiased, justice-is-blind" Supreme Court of the state of New Jerkoffs!! [pissed]
Link Posted: 10/2/2002 3:19:22 PM EDT
Another interesting point. This ruling renders primary elections moot, as the party national committee now has the legal authority to appoint anybody to replace a candidate that is persuaded to withdraw their candidacy. The only way the weasels of the NJ Supreme Court could have avoided that was to declare the second place candidate from the primary election as the DemocRAT candidate for Senator.

Even more outrageous is the statement that the two-party system is in "the public interest." Yeah, you can have a choice as long as it's between the Republicans and the Democrats--if you want a THIRD choice, we'll treat your party like shit, because, after all, the two party system is in the public interest.
Link Posted: 10/2/2002 3:44:55 PM EDT
You know, I just erad the full decision, and I can't find ANYTHING that JUSTIFIES the decision! The opinion seems to be comprised of two sections, which run together--a description of the parties, the complains, and the requested relief, and an order ordering said relief. No examination of relevant law. None. At all.

What I find interesting, is that this court also voted UNANIMOUSLY that fags should be scoutmasters. These guys are freaks, and anyone of those justices that claims to be republican is a liar.

Sadly, this type of stuff doesn't even piss me off anymore...I feel more disillusioned if anything else. It's what politics in the 21st century has become. This country is supposed to serve as a role model for the Democratic process. Now it's becoming more laughable. This is the kind of stuff that's supposed to happen in South America and Africa; not the United States. I was browsing the DU website earlier today and was surprised to find that a few people there questioned the ethics and honesty of what was taking place in NJ. My personal belief is that this is going to backfire on the Dems in a big way. It's possible that many NJ voters won't even turn up at the polls out of disgust. Hardcore Dems will still vote for their boy. The fence-sitters, independents and undecided might be more inclined to vote GOP over this. Hopefully NJ voters will do the right thing in November and restore a bit of pride back into our election system.

I knew the Democrats would get a pass. It's their SOP. Dont like the outcome of something? Whine and bitch to the courts (packed with people who think likewise) to change the rules. The reason the Democrats were so pissed at the SCOTUS in 2000 was because they intervened and stopped the Democrats and their courts from completely subverting the laws of the election. Ironic that they first seek to contest in courts, then piss and moan when the highest court in the land rules against them. Anyway, I expected this to happen. Not worked up about it.

They just violated the 14th Amendment, SCOTUS will smack them down AGAIN, just like they did the FL Supreme court-twice.

You know, after hearing about the situation with the late Ms. Mink in Hawaii, and remembering the same situation with Mel Carnahan in Missouri in 2000, I've been wondering just what the Democrats are up to. Then today, it dawned on me that the Democratic Party has simply realized what the Republicans have known for years. That the only good Democrat is a dead one. [:D]

I agree with those who say the US Supreme Court will not let this stand, especially in the face of clear NJ election law to the contrary...
Link Posted: 10/2/2002 8:11:43 PM EDT
I talked to 3 democrats about this today and they all thought the decision was a good one. I scratched my head and wondered how any reasonable person could come to that decision. Then it hit me. Democrats aren't reasonable people.

Wellllll, is not that what Torricelli should have considered before VOLUNTARILY REMOVING HIS NAME FROM THE FU__ING BALLOT? If it is a voluntary decision that that scum-bag made, and this same dung heap was supported and sponsored by a particular party.... THAT'S THEIR TOUGH F-ING SHIT FOR SUPPORTING A PIECE OF GARBAGE IN THE FIRST PLACE! That's all I'uv got tu say 'bout that. The_Macallan: your gonna give yourself a heart attack man.

My state sucks. The demon-cat party thinks they can do whatever they want. The state of NJ is an enemy of freedom. Frank Lautenberg is a limosine liberal who would ban guns if he could. But here is a little glimmer of hope,......many people talking and calling into local talkshows are not buying this shit pulled today. We shall see.
