Jewish World Review Nov. 23, 2000 / 25 Mar-Cheshvan 5761
http://www.jewishworldreview.com -- NO SURPRISE that the seven liberal judges (six Democrats, one Independent) which make up the Florida Supreme Court decided to step out of their conventional role of interpreters of the law to take on the role of legislators. In essence, they rewrote the voting laws of their state in order to allow Al Gore and his minions almost another week of vote farming time in three Democratically controlled counties. Al Capone would be proud.
In a prepared statement the court said, "... The laws are intended to facilitate and safeguard the right of each voter to express his or her will in the context of our representative democracy." This has been widely reported.
But in addition to the ballot counting question, the 42-page ruling released by the court included a few other findings which have NOT been widely reported in the mainstream press. Some of those other findings of the Florida Supreme Court are as follows:
"The court also finds that the will of the people must be heard and obeyed whether it be present day or historically. In that regard, then, this court will not seek to dismiss nor to alter the clear and determined will of the vast majority of people living in the fifteenth century who had decided that the world is flat. We support the decision of the majority."
"In a similar context, history has proven that an overwhelming majority of colonists living in America during the eighteenth century DID NOT desire revolutionary war against England. The small, socially elite minority who were the controlling power at the time, pushed for a revolution which overrode the clearly predominant will of the American people. We therefore, in striving to repair this gross injustice inflicted on the people’s will at that time, rule to abolish those documents which have come to be known as, a) The Declaration of Independence, and b) The Constitution of the United States of America. We so do this in the spirit of fairness and to be assured that the voices of all of the people at that time will at last be heard."
"Records and documents have shown to this court that most German people enthusiasticly supported Adolph Hitler in 1933. He was swept into power by an election that gave him a clear and powerful mandate as leader of that nation. This court cannot and will not condemn a process that had plainly respected the will of its people to make their choice in an election process. Indeed, this court recognizes that will, and applauds the German people for doing their duty and casting their votes so that their ‘voices’ could be heard."
"In a recent canvassing of nations in the Middle East, it was found that of all people living in the region, most would prefer to have the Jewish people leave and set up a new homeland somewhere other than in Israel. (Miami-Dade county was suggested as one viable alternative.) In keeping with the wishes of the majority in that region, we, the Florida Supreme Court support the will of the Arab people and move to petition the United Nations to consider other options for a Jewish homeland. The deadline for potential alternatives to be reached by 5 p.m. Sunday or 9 a.m. Monday."
"We find that President Clinton has done an A-1 job as leader of the free world and, therefore, propose that whichever candidate becomes President (after all the hand-counting is done including dimpled chads, freckled chads, spotted chads, and pimpled chads) should nominate William Jefferson Clinton as Worldwide Chancellor in charge of getting in touch with the ‘will of the people’."
"This court finds that we much prefer Al Gore’s hair style (even with the bald spot in the back) to that of Governor Bush."
"After careful deliberation, we have decided that whichever man takes office as
President should nominate three of us to the Federal Supreme Court. Okay,
