Every vote must be counted. It reminds me of an old saying, that beatings will continue until morale improves. Can it be that it has changed to the recounts will continue till the right someone wins? I hope not, I don’t want to be that cynical.
Since I did not want to become a cynical BLOGER [there are too many to compete with] I went out on the web to read about the election in Minnesota. I stumbled across Ann Coulter’s article and I highly recommend it (click here) titled The Cleanest State Meets the Pushiest Person on December 3, 2008.
The recap by Coulter is a bit eye opening:
November 4: Coleman wins the election by 725 votes.
Between November 4 and November 11: Corrections turned in by the various precincts give Franken 459 votes, and Coleman Lost 60 votes. The new difference: 206 votes separate the two contenders.
Between November 11 and December 3: The state of Minnesota has been conduction a careful recount and the 206 votes have grown to 295 still in favor of Coleman.
In a previous BLOG I stated that I was truly disappointed with Harry Reid (D-NV) Senate Majority Leader for conveying that the Senate may get involved in the election in Minnesota. I have searched the web and the constitution and found that the State has the right and responsibility for the election of Senators. Why is Reid insinuating himself into this issue. Less is more, Senator Reid.
Come on Minnesota, whether you voted for Coleman or for Franken, don’t give up your Constitutionally Enumerated right to elect your representatives, write, call, email Harry Reid and tell him to back off until you certify your own election. It is time that the Federal Government mind its own enumerated powers. Click here to find out how to contact Senator Reid of Nevada.
