Re: election - delete if not interested - For Joe H.
It looks like the political discussion is slowing down a bit, so I
will add a few words here and see what happens. The last digest came
in truncated after the first few messages, so I didn't get any of
Andrew's responses to me. So far we have not entered a real crisis
state yet, but I see that as a very good possibility after listening
to those old geezers on the Florida Supreme Court. It's clear they
are setting it up for Gore to steal the election. With Democrats
controling the recount and with guildlines so lax and flexable it's
going to be difficult to see how Gore won't come up with the votes he
needs. If Gore can come up with enough votes in 4 Democratic strong
counties selectively chosen for manual recount, then I can see
Congress challanging Florida's electors on Jan 6 when the votes are
counted because not all the counties were manually recounted.
Consider that plus the the fact that the Gore people are hardly
manking any attempt to really hide the fact that their intention is to
steal the election, as witnessed by their illegal throwing away of
1500 military ballots, plus all the irregularities that are going on
and Congress can easily justify throwing out the Florida electors if
Gore wins and turn the election over to the Congress.

That is true, but the question that remains to be answered is, will it
stay that way. If you remember any recent world history Communists
would use the legal democratic prosses to get elected and then refuse
to leave power once their term was up. The reason Gore is so hell
bent on stealing this election is that if Bush is president then this
will be the first time since 1953 that the Republicans have controlled
the House, the Senate and the Presidency. Democrats have a lust for
power and, as Gore is showing us, they really don't care how they get
it. Democrats are only interested in themselves doing all the tugging
I'm always amazed at how liberals fail to see what the Clinton
impeachment was all about. I know a lot of good, decent people who
are liberals who are quite bright and responsible people, but they
will not admit to what really happened. I think it centers around the
fact that liberals don't believe in individual responsibility. It's
always someone elses fault.
>If you want factual news, I recommend C-Span and NPR.
Now you are really identifying yourself as a true liberal. You can't
get much more liberal socialist as NPR. They are just about as bad a
Hanoi Jane. Their reporting is so biased that I hardly see how it can
be called reporting. Some of their reports are educational, but they
are educational only from the liberal point of view. They are always
knocking down and ridiculing conservative ideas while playing up the
feel good aspects of liberalism. Now, if you really want to get as
good as perspective as possible about political issues I suggest you
listen to Rush Limbaugh.

I'm always amazed at how liberals can be so selective in what they use
to support their own point of view and then demonstrate that they
really don't know what they are talking about. First of all,
presidents don't really have as much influence on the economy as we
like to think. The way I remember it, Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, was
president before Regean became president. Do you remember Carter's 18
percent INFLATION! It was Carter's inactivity and his 18% inflation
that caused the bad economy. Within a few years Regean had inflation
down to a resonable level and by the time he left office it was even
lower. It was Regean's tax cut that stimulated the economy that
Clinton-Gore took credit for. And the next president, be it Bush or
Gore, will inherit a declining economy.
>I heard Rush Limbaugh....(that shows how bigotted he has become while

You obviously don't listen to Rush. Maybe you have the radio turned
on to his show, but that isn't the same as listening. I don't always
agree with Rush, and I think he figured out that he can easily get way
off base on scientific stuff, but when it comes to understanding
politics and the forces that shape politics, there aren't too many
that have the insight that he does. Liberals have a visceral hatred
for Rush because he exposes them for what they really are. You have
to understand that liberals want power because liberals believe in
collectivism while conservatives believe in individual responsibility.
Liberals want government to take care of them while conservatives want
to take care of themsleves. Like Gore said "I'll do anything to be
president" and is he ever showing us what he meant by that!
