I can't ignore all the coincidences in the 2000 election, as they have a potentially damaging effect on democracy. You only have to look at Berlusconi in Italy to see what the effects of manipulating the system can do (In fact, I reccomend reading The Dark Heart Of Italy to everyone here.)
: I think its from all the bullshit they are talking
: : Fine film-maker, bad judge of politics. It was his endorsement of Ralph Nadir that took votes away from Al Gore.
: First of all its Nader.
: Second it did not take away votes from Gore because most of those who voted for Nader didnt want Gore either. I hate this belly whining arguement. Gore lost because he couldnt even carry his own state. Jeeze its been over 3 years.
: Ok, so there was George W. Bush rigging the system, but it's wrong to ignore all the factors.
: Tired arguement as well. Gore lost by the systems rules. Did I like it? Nope but thats the legality of it. You dont like it try voting for your congress people and not just your president.
