DeSantis Victory Saves The Florida Supreme Court And Redistricting

Post by 1989TransAm » Wed Nov 07, 2018 10:25 pm

Thank God DeSantis won and the socialist lost. :D

"Amid all of the talking head analysis of Tuesday’s election, one aspect is often overlooked: Republican Ron DeSantis’ victory for Governor of Florida will sharply change the makeup of the Florida Supreme Court to a large majority conservative, constitutionalist, which will have a powerful impact on redistricting in the nation’s third largest state.
But it was close — less than 1 percent close. Andrew Gillum could have been the first African American governor in the history of Florida. Indeed, the last time this degree of historical significance graced a candidate, he won the Presidency of the United States.
But Andrew Gillum’s race turned out differently. Tallahassee’s mayor had an excellent performance in his primary election defeating Florida darling Gwen Graham — daughter of former Governor and former Senator Bob Graham — when many felt he couldn’t. Gillum exceeded all expectations, and he did it at a fraction of the cost as more well-heeled candidates battled each other with attack ads.
All the various reasons why Gillum won the primary will be the object of endless discussion and debate, but in the end, the qualities that put him over the top in the primary were the same ones that doomed him in the general.
Gillum ran on plans to make Florida a sanctuary state, to implement an income tax, and to turn the Florida Supreme Court deep blue progressive. The prospects of those changes were too repugnant to Floridians. Florida is an extremely diverse state, but in the face of one of the greatest economies in the country, and Floridians’ aversion to a state income tax, the prospect of turning in a polar opposite direction was too much for the electorate.
And understand, that in most respects, Florida is a red state. Every statewide office holder, including all of the elected cabinet positions are Republican and have been Republican for many years. The Legislature is nearly veto-proof Republican. Only the highest level statewide races make it purple.
With no experience in Florida government, DeSantis will have a difficult transition from his present duties as a congressman. But perhaps the easiest task for him is arguably the most substantial: picking three conservative Supreme Court judges.
A Gillum win would have maintained and rejuvenated the Court’s liberal majority. But now, the 4-3 votes in favor of liberals will become 6-1 votes in favor of conservatives; sweet justice for social conservatives and strict constitutionalists who have seen their legislations recurrently blown up by a hostile court.
Oh, and let’s not forget the effect the new Court will have on redistricting challenges by the Democrats a mere three years away. The old 4-3 Court was very friendly to the liberal redistricting lawsuits. The new one will likely be less so, affecting state elections but also congressional elections.
For Republicans, there is great hope in a DeSantis governorship, but like President Trump, the effect on the Florida Supreme Court alone will suffice in making this win worthwhile."

Redistricting is yuge for demoncrats, hence the push for illegal invasions, so this is definitely a win for America.

What really helped Gillum was Obama showing up in his casual costume

Special thanks to Obama

The demon rats are working hard filling out more demon rat ballots to make sure he doesn't win. Sounds like a national guard deal needs to be happening there.

Looks like the dimoKKKRATS are manufacturing ballots. The judges orders are being disobeyed. Truly anarchy happening in Broward County Florida. [-X

Florida as well as ALL the rest of us deserve the Gov. we vote in AND don't forget it!!

I voted almost straight Rep. Ticket!! BUT do you think I really am in love with the Rep's?? Hell, no, but they are far and away ahead of the Dem's, imho!! Kinda like voting for Trump or the, "CUNT"!!

The best thing that Pres. Trump has done is to keep the, "CUNT", out of the WH!!! Boy did we dodge a hell of a bullet when he did!!

I sure don't like open borders and this two-tiered legal system that we are getting. The legal system smells of COMMUNISM!!

But then again, all the way down through HISTORY up until our Founding Fathers created our Country, The two tiered legal system was the ruling legal system!!! Now we actually have RULE of LAW if we don't throw it away and not the shit Kings and Dictators and stuff ruled with!! Even the Catholic Church is still this way today, not ran by RULE of LAW by no means!!
