"Nearly every year the east side Republicans in the legislature propose secession from the tyranny of King County. Where is this year's bill? This is the year it could happen if the revote is denied."
Yahoo - I'm all for this and I'm hoping for secession - I don't want Ron Sims and the primarily socialist idiots in the KC Council dictating what we in the burbs can do with our land, etc. (for that matter, I don't think they should be taking property rights away inside Seattle either). I think there should be a south county, too. I'd like to see Seattle set up like Denver. There's the City and County of Denver, then the rest of the area surrounding Denver is in separate counties.
Glad Stefan did well - I've been reading soundpolitics.com for a couple of weeks now and there are some great posts and comments on there. I've posted a couple of items here, including the great speech Stefan gave at the revote rally in Olympia last week. Nice to know the revote and election is getting national coverage (on Fox and WSJ anyway).
People on earlier threads have said that although the court is very liberal, some of them may have consciences. Let's hope that's true.
I don't think there is a chance in the world that SCOTUS will reverse them if they give it to Gregoire. The Lautenberg precedent makes that pretty clear.
I'd be willing to bet that Gregoire will not be the governor in six months. The WA SC will decide for a re-vote. There is not even the least bit of doubt in my mind. There is a precedent for this situation in the state of Washington where there was far, far fewer votes in dispute and a much, much larger margin in the hand count.
At least three are not liberal. None of them are so stupid that they would rule against a revote, especially with all the publicity about this case and the fact that three of them will be facing possible re-election in less than two years; none of whom are the three non-liberals.
some of them may have consciences. Let's hope that's true.
What in the world leads one to believe that such judges as these (and those in FL and NJ as well) have "consciences."?
