" Independent investigations in Florida revealed serious irregularities directed mostly against ethnic minorities and low-income residents who usually voted heavily Democratic. Some 36,000 newly registered voters were turned away because their names had never been added to the voter rolls by Florida’s secretary of state Kathleen Harris. By virtue of the office she held, Harris presided over the state’s election process while herself being an active member of the Bush Jr. state-wide campaign committee. Other voters were turned away because they were declared--almost always incorrectly--“convicted felons.” In several Democratic precincts, state officials closed the polls early, leaving lines of would-be voters stranded.
Under orders from Governor Jeb Bush (Bush Jr.’s brother), state troopers near polling sites delayed people for hours while searching their cars. Some precincts required two photo IDs which many citizens do not have. The requirement under Florida law was only one photo ID. Passed just before the election, this law itself posed a special difficulty for low-income or elderly voters who did not have drivers licenses or other photo IDs. Uncounted ballot boxes went missing or were found in unexplained places or were never collected from certain African-American precincts. During the recount, GOP agitators shipped in from Washington D.C. by the Republican national leadership stormed the Dale County Canvassing Board, punched and kicked one of the officials, shouted and banged on their office doors, and generally created a climate of intimidation that caused the board to abandon its recount and accept the dubious pro-Bush tally.1
Then a five-to-four conservative majority on the U.S. Supreme Court in a logically tortured decision ruled that a complete recount in Florida would be a violation of the Fourteenth Amendment’s equal protection clause because different counties have different ways of counting the votes. At that point Gore was behind by only a few hundred or so votes in Florida and was gaining ground with each attempt at a recount. By preventing a complete tally, the justices handed Florida’s electoral votes and the presidency to Bush, a stolen election in which the conservative activists on the Supreme Court played a key role.
Even though Bush Jr. lost the nation’s popular vote to Gore by over half a million, he won the electoral college and the presidency itself."
Come to grips with it. Obama won the election. By a landslide. America rejected every idiotic idea the Republican party stands for.
I think you need to work on reading comprehension. No one is denying Obama won both popular vote and the electoral college. But we refuse to pretend there was any "mandate" established. And are you seriously still arguing 2000? Talk about denial.

Rest in Peace Robert Bork. Probably one of the most qualified and intelligent men to ever be nominated for the Supreme Court. The Left showed it's true colors in their demagogic destruction of his nomination and the nation is the poorer for it.

Yes, and now that you mention Al Gore, remember how the Bush-heads were always saying "Gore lost, get over it."?

Now more than ever the song remains the same:

Obama won, Romney lost. Get over it.

It's kinda funny how none of the arrogant and assholish complain about ridiculous Republican policies.
Bush and his band of theives ran up a 426 billion dollars deficit in 2006. I never heard one complaint from any of my close republican relatives. Now that democrats are doing it republicans are mad. Truth is both parties are wrong for doing it. As an independent I understand we had to spend billions to clean up Bush's chitty diapers but a trillion dollar healthcare plan should have been left out of the picture untill we get the deficits under control.

Can't comment on your relatives, but there were plenty of us who were not happy with Bush over the spending and were vocal about it. Bush was and is a good man, but he was far more of a moderate than conservatives would have liked and he tried too hard to "get along" with Democrats in terms of spending.

Yep, it's funny that certain low information voters think that those that support the right side (although I'm a Libertarian) were OK with spending under W. I certainly wasn't.

Looks like we are officially sitting at the same table, Bill, since as of the last election, when fot the first time in my life I gave up on the Democratic party and voted Libertarian.

Hopefully in 2016 we will have a stronger run!

So your idea of doing whats right for the country is to support a candidate who has NO chance go get elected. You don't value your vote and have NO right to say a damn thing.

I am TRULY amazed how someone I've never met can tell what I value and what I don't value. Once again, you're full of $hit, but no one's surprised. And, to tell someone they have NO right to say something, well, what I'm about to type will probably be wasted on you, you won't be able to comprehend it...

Oh yeah, you're probably "Einstein" from a year or so ago...

Go back a bit of time in Topix (if you can figure out how to do that) and see that I was the poster telling people voting for someone that has no rational chance of winning was wasting their vote, akin to voting "present" as the POTUSA did in the Senate MANY times. If you would have seen those posts, you'd see how "low information" you are.

I am certainly not a liberal (I can think for myself, don't need to live off the government teat and believe we are responsible for ourselves) and not conservative enough to be a Republican. I disagree with them them on several things, including religion and abortion.

If that isn't enough to "help" you figure things out, read this part REAL SLOW so it will sink in:

Romney was not my 1st choice for the Republicans. Nor my second. Probably not my 3rd, but most everyone else was gone by then. Anyone who had a reasonable chance that was running against BO would have received my vote.

I voted FOR Romney, but MY vote was a vote against BO, because I knew that Gary Johnson did not have a chance of winning. Same thing happened in the 2008 election.

'nuff said.

I would put out there, that a lot of people place no value on their votes, from any side, and those that do so, or those that do not vote, are clueless.

+1

I wish we could require people to take an information type test to determine whether or not they're able to vote. Some people are too clueless and uneducated to vote.

Also, I REALLY wish those that have lived off the government for a certain period of time (e.g., welfare brood mares) weren't able to vote...
