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.

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.

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 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.
