Election 2000 --- A Perspective-Gore Won-We Lost
I don't think atrocious terrorist activity, in knocking down a few buildings, or crashing a few planes, even approaches the threat to the American democratic way of life, of the internal political cancer that Republican fascism presents. Look for the expected use of the cover of American grief, to implement inappropriately "stupid" responses, dumb spending on cold war defense strategies, and perpetration of asinine social agendas.My confidence in the public to recognize such is minimal,but I refuse to be distracted and let this bastard administration off the hook!

I followed Election 2000 intently and conclude it represents the greatest threat, internal or external, to our democracy in modern times. "Legal vote tampering" has significantly reduced my confidence in the American democratic institution with its inherent system of checks and balances among the various political branches.This atrocity spanned state and federal, legislative,executive and judicial institutions ,including the US Supreme Court. Most discouraging was the apparent endorsement of nearly 50% of Americans. I can only conclude that there is a cancer of complacency among all of us that threatens our very democratic way of life.No pillar of democracy is more fundamental than the vote, and this is not a matter of Republican or Democratic party affiliation or doctrine. Election 2000 is an indication of "bad" people in powerful places.
Despite attempts to redirect blame to faulty voting equipment, and time constraints, I reject both specious arguments. Any voting system will be subject to errors and misuse,and the ultimate equalizer will be a direct human visual check. But, I really do not think this needs defense as I believe most people believe this. What we had was a clear example of a deliberate and successful attempt to obfuscate and mislead the public into accepting what clearly amounts to disenfranchisement of thousands of voters because of fears that their votes would swing the election. My sincere praise to the Florida Supreme Court in their brave attempt to save us from ourselves.
Such willingness to trash fundamental democratic principles makes me believe the upcoming administration is "unfit for office",and that includes the principals and others (including cabinet appointments) willing to implicitly endorse such by their acceptance of positions.
A chronological list of names infamous in American history comes to mind: Arnold; Booth; Oswald;Harris;Baker/Cheney; Nixon/Bush. None but the latest has so openly atacked our democratic system so blatantly and insiduously.
Mr Gore, thanks for fighting the good fight (at the end game) and hats off to David Boies who presented the case(s) so well and clearly based on principle that any American willing to listen would have heard.
It is not so much that you lost,but how they "won", that makes us all losers. This administration shall always have my disgust, and I hope that of history.We should not forget this!
Luckily I never had to go to war, but in remembrance to the hundreds of thousands who have in our country's history,some who made the ultimate sacrifice for democracy, I feel obligated to speakup. They fought the wars over there, we need to fight the cancer within. Our weapon is free speech --assuming that is still in vogue....(New analysis books.)

job,and Bill Clinton who did a great job..but that is another story...and not nearly so
