    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

It also ordered that every county in Florida must immediately begin manually recounting all "under-votes" (ballots which did not indicate a vote for president) because there were enough contested ballots to place the outcome of the election in doubt"

    So wait, I'm confused...are you "LOL"ing because you're now moving the goal posts over your idiotic comment and now falling back on conspiracy theories that it was "stolen" as opposed to suggesting he didn't win it?

    You really need to get your hyper partisan bull**** talking points straight before you start pushing them, it's really hurting your attempt to foolishly engage in this conversation.

    George W. Bush won the 2000 election. Once again, hate to break it to you, that's fact.

    STATES RIGHTS?
    EMANICPATION PROCOLOMATION!

    TITTY SPRINKLES!

    We are just yelling out random things right? That's what you were going for there? Or were you trying to make a point?

    Imagine if Walmart owned access to all the streets in your town. You can go to Target or the mom and pop downtown if you want, but all the roads leading there require a toll, whereas the roads leading to Walmart are free. That is not the avenue the internet needs to go down.

    How did "Shrub" come into this discussion ?

    I don't even think Shrubnose has even chimed in on the thread.

    Bush won the 2000 election, that is Fact....and in this case, I am actually using that word correctly.
    Federal elections are administered by state and local governments, although the specifics of how elections are conducted differ between the states. The Constitution and laws of the United States grant the states wide latitude in how they administer elections.

    SCOTUS handed the election to Dubya... Small 'state right' CONservatives strike again, LIKE when Dubya fought ALL 50 states to invoke a rule from 1864 (Civil war era) on 'predatory' lending. I'm shocked you think the SCOTUS had ANY rights there

    Wide latitude, but not soul dominion.

    SCOTUS handed the election to Dubya
    No, they handled the court case that determined Florida's electoral count.

    Bush having the larger electoral total than Gore is what handed him the election.

    [quoteI'm shocked you think the SCOTUS had ANY rights there[/quote]

    Why? Because you're amazingly bigoted towards anyone with "conservative" listed as a lean and thus make prejudiced judgements on them based on hyperbolic stereotypes you've created in your head?

    Federal Election. SCOTUS deemed they had authority to make the decision. SCOTUS made their decision. The electoral votes went to Bush. Bush had the larger total. Bush won the election. I'm sorry you're annoyed by facts...but a hyper partisans annoyance by fact doesn't make them non-existant.

    Bush won the 2000 election.
