FYI, the lawsuit challenging Obama's win on constitutional grounds--because he's evidently failed to come up with a copy of his birth certificate--is on the docket for consideration by the Supreme Court tomorrow, Dec. 5.

This suit was rejected quite some time ago by Justice Souter, but was then accepted by Clarence Thomas.

Now, SCOTUS may choose not to deal with it. That would seem to be the reasonable thing to do, all things considered. On the other hand, they may decide to take it up.

That decision would be grave indeed; and yet the deeper problem is the very fact that SCOTUS has laid claim to the prerogative to nullify the choice of the electorate. As Paul Lehto* has argued (in his essay in Loser Take All), it was Bush v. Gore whereby the Court proclaimed its right to settle our elections for us, our electoral decision notwithstanding.

So, whatever happens--or if nothing happens--there is still cause for profound concern (assuming that we really care about democracy). And even if the Court were not a rogue outfit, hijacked by theocratic partisans, we'd still have plenty of good reason to demand some radical reform of our election system, even if you're thoroughly delighted with the (temporary?) outcome on Nov. 4.

31,545 Petitions and We're Still Counting!


WND Readers FedEx 31,545 Letters to
Supreme Court Justices in less than 24 Hours

Wow. Since our email this morning, WND readers have rushed to add more than 31,545 letters to our Petition the Supreme Court FedEx campaign. In fact, so many of you pledged to help that our web servers nearly imploded!

So, if you had any trouble getting your order through at the WND Shop today, please try again now.

In case you missed it:
On Friday, a case that challenges President-elect Barack Obama's name on the 2008 election ballot citing questions over his citizenship is scheduled for conference at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Because the Supreme Court justices do not accept faxes or emails or telephone calls, there is only one way to make your voice heard in time for Friday's hearing -
overnight delivery of your letters.

To make that process easier for you, WND has devised a plan to get the following letter sent on your behalf by FedEx to each of the nine justices by Friday's hearing:
Supreme Court of the United States
One First Street, NE
Washington, DC 20543
Dear Associate Justice ___________:
If the Constitution doesn't mean precisely what it says, then America is no longer a nation under the rule of law.
A nation no longer under the rule of law is, by definition, under the rule of men.
Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution clearly stipulates "No person except a natural born Citizen" shall be eligible to serve as president of the United States. That statement has clear meaning, and the Supreme Court of the United States is one of the controlling legal authorities in ensuring that the Constitution is enforced - even if doing so may prove awkward.
With the Electoral College set to make its determination Dec. 15 that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. be the next president of the United States, the Supreme Court is holding a conference Friday to review a case challenging his eligibility for the office based on Article 2, Section 1.
I urge you to take this matter most seriously - and judge it only on the clear, unambiguous words of the Constitution: A president must, at the very least, be a "natural born citizen" of the United States.
If you agree that this clear constitutional requirement still matters, the Supreme Court must use its authority to establish, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that Barack Hussein Obama Jr. qualifies for the office under that standard.
There is grave, widespread and rapidly growing concern throughout the American public that this constitutional requirement is being overlooked and enforcement neglected by state and federal election authorities. It's up to the Supreme Court to dispel all doubt that America's next president is truly a natural born citizen of the United States.
I urge you to honor the Constitution in this matter and uphold the public trust.
Sincerely,

Ross Curro
