Re: Election - you should delete this, probably


John:

>The information we get here is that Mr. Gore far and away won the

>Haven't you heard that where you live?

Have you not read the US Constitution and how we elect presidents?  We 
do NOT have a direct, popular election for president.  It makes no 
difference that Gore won the popular vote, it's the Electoral College 
vote that counts, and last I heard after the recount in Florida, Bush 
had 272 votes to Gore's 268.  However, if you consider the 100,000 to 
maybe 1,000,000 fradulent votes for Gore by illegal immigrants, felons 
(at least 39 in one Florida county), dead people, double voting and 
how ever else Democrats come up with fixing an election, then you 
really have to admit that Bush won the REAL popular vote.

>Does it matter to you at all that President Clinton is and has been 
>the most popular and effective President in American history?? 

Now, you are starting a debate with a false premise and expecting me 
to defend myself.  Granted, Clinton has a lot of charisma, and there 
are certain groups of people who will adore him, but to say he is the 
most effective president in Anerican history is really streaching the 
truth a LONG way.  Just about everything Clinton did do that was good 
was a Republican idea.  

>...and he broke no laws

Except for lying under oath!

>>If he were presidental he would have conceded after he lost the 
>>recount.

>So would Bush,

Yes, Bush would have cenceded after the recount IF he had lost, BUT he 
didn't lose.  The real problem here is that neither Gore nor Democrats 
in general want to accept that they lost the election.  

>We have at last reached a juncture in our history where we had to 
>choose between the lesser of two evils.

You can say that about a lot of elections, but when it comes to making 
a choice between someone who is a committed socialist like Gore or 
someone who believes in freedom like Bush, the choice is clear.

>Do you have any idea at all what the $55,000,000 spent on just one of 
>the republican attack dogs (Ken Star) could have done for school 
>children in America

Do you know how much good 55 million could have done had to gone back 
to companies who could have spend that money instead on research and 
development for developing new and improved pollution control, better 
and more effecent gas engines, new drugs for rare diseases, new 
technology for computers and wireless communication and on and on.  
Throwing more money on education isn't going to solve the problems 
that our education system faces today.  The very reason we have the 
problems in the education system is precisely because they are run by 
the government.  If you want good education, then lets get the 
government out of the education system.
