Work Within the System - Destroy the System - Their Call
Democrats: We Win, No Matter What
Don't bother voting, fellow Republicans, no less a personage than former Clinton Justice Department official (and current member of the DNC's "Election Task Force") Eric Holder has stated clearly that no matter what happens on November 2nd, Kerry is to be elected President. Jim Geraghty of the KerrySpot gives us the scoop:
Eric Holder, a former Clinton Justice Department official who is now on the Democratic party's "Election Task Force," made a remarkable statement in a recent appearance on Fox News Sunday.
Discussing a Democratic National Committee memo calling for local party members to complain "preemptively" about voter intimidation, Holder said, "If every vote is allowed to be cast, and if every vote is counted, John Kerry will be president within a day of that election."
After his comment spurred some laughter, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace said, "Well, I don't know how you can guarantee that." But Holder just responded, "You heard it right here. If every vote is allowed to be cast and every vote is counted, John Kerry will be president."
Let that sink in for a moment - two weeks out from the vote, a senior Democrat is stating boldly that if every vote is counted, Kerry wins. How can he possibly know that? Has he gone 'round to every person who is sure to vote on November 2nd and asked? Of course not - so, what is he up to? He's setting up what the Democrats consider the real election of 2004 - their lawsuits post-November 2nd in which they hope to litigate their way into the White House.
This is part of a long trend this year that we've witnessed among Democrats - the short story about it is that they've never felt good about Kerry's chances but they have felt that they can keep it close in enough States to provide them with a platform for lawsuits. The Democrats have lost all faith in the democratic process; at the same time, they are convinced that the only just outcome of an election is a Democratic victory - ergo, they never put the effort into crafting a message and providing a good candidate, but they have long laid their plans to hijack America's legal system in an attempt to usurp the power of the American people to determine their own leadership.
If nothing else convinces you to get out and vote on November 2nd, then this should - remember, if it ain't close, they can't cheat. Its unfair, but we of the GOP cannot win narrowly - we have to win big or not win at all. And as for you sensible Democrats out there, its time to vote Republican not because you like Republicans, but because you like our democratic Republic. The Democratic Party, perhaps blindly but at any case in reality, is set to completely undermine American democracy - if the Democrats succeed in an effort to lawsuit their way to victory, then democracy in America is dead; the only thing which will matter is who can game the system...ie, which corrupt set of politicians are willing to bare-nuckle their way into power.
Its not supposed to be this way - but in a large sense, a big GOP victory on November 2nd now becomes an act of patriotism in the highest sense; we must forever convince the Democratic leadership that they must work within the American system...that there is no shortcut to power. Craft a message, come up with a candidate and have at it - and if you lose, gracefully accept the loss and try again next time. This is the way it used to be - and it will be again, provided the Democrats suffer a crushing defeat on November 2nd.
