The following is a quote from Sen. Joseph Lieberman: “This is the time to honor the rule of law, not the rule of the mob.” Sen. Lieberman was commenting on demonstrations by citizens in Florida protesting selective recounts in parts of Florida precincts. Thought: Does the “rule of law” include conducting selective recounts in parts of any heavily one party precinct in this nation? By selective recounts, read: not all the votes cast in that precinct.
Does not the rule of law (i.e., the Constitution) above all guarantee the right of free speech? If we are to presume it does (considering that there are no First Amendment challenges in court), then why in God’s name cannot United States citizens gather to protest in Florida without being mocked as a mob by a United States senator – and a candidate for vice president of these United States?
