ARROGANCE PERSONIFIED JUST WHAT IS CONFUSING ABOUT "NONE OF THE ABOVE"
Why cannot Gore and the
public at large realize that this election was really about the 'lesser of two
evils' and that many voters felt that if 'NONE OF THE ABOVE' had been
a choice, there would be no unmarked, dimpled or pregnant ballots?
It is obvious that the
vote nationwide was very nearly a 50/50 choice. If demographics are taken into
consideration, it is noted that Bush got the majority of votes in all the states and all the counties and that his strength was in the rural communities while Gore prevailed in the urban communities with fewer states and counties but denser populations.
This accurately depicts
the difference of lifestyles and philosophies of the voters but surely doesn't
mean that Gore 'won the hearts of the people'. The founders of this great nation realized, AND STATED IN WRITING THAT TO OFFSET THIS CAPTURING OF THE LARGE CITY VOTE, THERE MUST BE PUT INTO PLACE AN EQUALIZER---AND THIS IS WHY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE WAS INCORPORATED INTO THE CONSTITUTION.
Let it rest Gentlemen!
Bush has won at least three times. Are we to be treated to a never-ending soap
opera of who can produce the most skillful team of lawyers--shades of the recent ploy of determining the true definition of the word IS.
