And Democrats wanted to count all of the votes except the military absentee votes, right?

THE SCOTUS ruled against the "Florida State Supremely Liberal" court on 2 occasion. The Florida court was way outside the bounds of the law and was legislating from the bench. All the SCOTUS did was nullify their attempts to steal the election.

Too easy...everybody gets 1 vote, even poor people that pay no taxes or contribute to society, and then after that, for every 10 grand you pay in taxes, 1 additional vote. Maybe I should have said, "As anybody with a brain knows" That better?
I think the obvious things here are: IF your corporation actually pays taxes the way they should be paying then it's possible for your corporation to have a vote for every $10,000 paid in taxes? Or, in other words, 100 votes for every $1,000,000 paid in taxes? How is that fair to the general population? Especially considering that 70% of our economy is driven by WE THE CONSUMERS! I honestly think that one "small" fact has eluded our greedy corporations, the same corporations that get all the tax breaks, pilot programs and other tax "incentives". All of which lower corporations tax liabilities.

The rethuglican controlled SCOTUS has done more harm to our country than any terrorists could ever hope to accomplish! Just in case you had your blinders on when it happened, dick cheney, when asked about our rights and our Constitution, publicly stated: "What rights? You don't have any! What Constitution? It's just another damn piece of paper that don't mean shiat!" To that comment, I say the terrorists have already won these costly wars. Wars that were started by a greedy rethuglican president whose family has always supplied both sides of every conflict/war since WW1.

You mean the NON POST MARKED VOTES? Yeah, they started out that way, but changed to ALL votes Bubba.

You mean when SCOTUS went into a STATES RIGHTS ISSUE?

Perhaps read what REAL lawyers and legal sites say about that, lol I don't think you'd see that as being true. SCOTUS overstepped and Bushie was SELECTED President. I'm OK with it because Gore was to much of a P*SSY to do anything at the beginning. He got robbed, but should have stood up to the punks!
