RAGE AGAINST THE (DEMOCRATS') MACHINE:“NO LEGAL HIGH-JINX” SAY NEW JERSEY VOTERS: Election Research Finds Thousands of New Jersey Voters Not in Agreement with Supreme Court Decision (Gabriel Joseph, October 2, 2002, www.ccAdvertising.biz)
A random survey among New Jersey respondents Wednesday found overwhelming disapproval of the New Jersey Supreme Court’s granting of a state Democrat Party petition to set aside state election law and allow the Democrats to replace drop-out candidate for the U.S. Senate, Senator Robert Torricelli, with former Senator Frank Lautenberg.
The survey was conducted by Election Research, the political survey arm of Herndon, Virginia based ccAdvertising, on Wednesday evening between 4:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 2,993 New Jersey respondents statewide. “It’s often been said that we’re a nation of laws and not of people,” said Gabriel Joseph, President of ccAdvertising. “Laws have no validity if they can just be set aside at the whim of a political party. What’s next? Lowering the voting age if the Democrat candidate happens to be popular on MTV?”
The survey found that 54% of New Jersey respondents disapprove of the Court’s decision. Further, the survey portends doom for Lautenberg and the Democrats in the race, with 53.01% percent saying they would vote for Republican Doug Forrester. This result shows Mr. Forrester has the clear majority support among respondents plainly offsetting all Lautenberg and undecided voters, combined.
We'll let the conservatives' favorite play speak for us:
Wife: Arrest him!Posted by Orrin Judd at October 3, 2002 2:38 PM
More: For what?
Wife: He's dangerous!
Roper: For all we know he's a spy!
Daughter: Father, that man's bad!
More: There's no law against that!
Roper: There is, God's law!
More: Then let God arrest him!
Wife: While you talk he's gone!
More: And go he should, if he were the Devil himself, until he broke the law!
Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!
More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
Roper: Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!
More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat?
This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down (and you're just the man to do it!), do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then?
Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!
