That a neo-classic. When all else fail play the Faux News "contrived" socialist card.<quoted text>
Says the die-hard Socialist...
So in other words you can't find anything but contrived propaganda?
Why do you think the laws in FL should not have been followed? Any other laws that should be ignored?
A LAYMAN'S GUIDE TO THE SUPREME COURT DECISION IN BUSH V. GORE by Mark H. Levine, Attorney at Law: The US Supreme Court made clear that the Florida Supreme Court did not change the rules of the election. But the US Supreme Court found the failure of the Florida Court to change the rules was wrong. The Legislature declared that the only legal standard for counting vote is "clear intent of the voter." The Florida Court was condemned for not adopting a clearer standard. The US Supreme Court said the Florida Supreme Court should have "adopted adequate statewide standards for determining what is a legal vote". However, only the state Legislature could "adopt" a new law. If the Court had adopted new standards, it would have been overturned for changing the rules. And if it didn't, it's overturned for not changing the rules. That means that no matter what the Florida Supreme Court did, legal votes could never be counted.
So the law really wasn't ignored so much as it was "stolen" by a really bad loophole. In the end the result was the same. Of course, all you have to do is put your fingers in your ears and hum. The problem is so much bullshit has been thrust upon the American people the line between reality and propaganda has been blurred.
Now, since this forum is about the Governor's race I propose to you that Kasich has strayed from his "roots" and has become part of the new "laissez faire machine". This machine hasn't worked very well because the free market system unfortunately cannot regulate itself, greed is too big an influence. I'm looking for some quotes from Mr. Kasich admitting while the smaller government interference in the markets in theory is a good idea, just say that he didn't approve of the way the markets wrote their own rules for their own benefit. Financial deregulation began in the late 70's and early 80's starting with the mortgage industry. The Republican's held both houses from 1981-87 and just let the market do what they wanted without much debate. Of course, Mr. Kasisch was a congressman during that period, and he actually did a pretty good job as the chairman of the House Budget Committee. I do give him kudos that he was instrumental in the $280 billion plus surplus during the Clinton administration. Then he disappeared for the most part while the Bush clan (again the Republican's controlled both Houses 2003-2006) trashed "his" budget "surplus" and all of the other stuff if you would have read beyond line one. Because I haven't really seen him show his true "independent" colors and say "yea, I worked for Lehman, but these dudes were bad and really helped frig stuff up and I'm for serious reform", disclose his financial history and such, I don't know that I can trust him. Sorry, I think [unfortunately] he's damaged goods.
By the way, I voted for Reagan and Bush Sr.(and supported Kasich during his congressional stint) It's unfortunate that the far right wacko's have polluted the Republican Party. I might consider him if he'd run as Libertarian or Independent. Sorry, guilty by association
Vote smart, not angry.
