    As the real truth of the election results looms closer, George W. Bush Jr. now wants a court order to stop the hand count of Florida ballot. Just what is he afraid of?

    THE TRUTH MAYBE??????

    Hell, if I have to hand count every fucking ballot myself it would be worth it to know that the man sitting in the White House after January 20 is the one with a legal right to be there. If Bush doesn't agree with that, he should have never been in the race.

    "I trust the people" says Junior's campaign ads.

    Bullshit. You obviously didn't trust them to elect you without tricks, you lying cocksucker

    i agree with you. DIF's probably gonna close this, since he and political threads don't get along, but i agree with you 100 percent. as a foreigner, what gets me is that gore has the popular vote, but he still may not win. what's up with that?

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>But that's the law, so it shouldn't even be an issue. All parties knew that going in, so they can't (or at least shouldn't) complain about the relevance of the popular vote.

    Agreed, FORD. Gore's done the right thing by making sure this is completely accurate.

    laner, some US history here...way back when, when communication took weeks and people were not as well educated, people voted for electors to cast ballots for the president in the states, called the Electoral College. If a candidate wins a state, the delegates from that state cast ballots for them for President. 270 is the minimum.

    This system is over 200 years old. We are an educated people now (well, I would hope), and it is no longer neccessary. See, more people could vote for Candidate X, but Candidate Y won the states with the most electoral votes (determined by population--California has 52, for instance), and thus, he wins the election. It's happened before, and it could happen again.

    This is an old system, it needs to be abolished...

    We've got plenty of time to get this thing right. Can everyone agree on doing things the right way, as opposed to doing them the partisan way? Some things are more important than posturing and threatening for party purposes. Like Billy007 said, take the time to do it right.

    Well, it's not that way at all, laner.

    If that were the case, all the political threads would be closed, right?

    I am closing this - NOT because of the views on either side - But because there are already two other threads about politics and that's enough.

    I don't think that's an unfair policy at all.

    Anything you guys want to post, you can - In those two threads, please.

    But if EVERY political thread were left open, there's be 20 of them.

    And that would suck.

    Carry on, political posters...
