Bush won the last time.

Fair and square.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

We're not a democracy for VERY good reason. Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding on whats for dinner. We are supposed to be a constitutionally-limited republic.

You're talking about majority rules. That is specifically a trait of democracy.

It doesn't even come close to working this time. The electoral system is set up in this nation as Ancalagon said. The constitution limits this with the electoral college. Thats just how it is. He was totally correct and you were totally wrong.

If Al Gore won fair and square, he would have won the electoral college, which he did not, and therefor he did not win fair and square. As he was not granted the office, nothing went on illegal.

That whole escapade just was a huge example of how democrats really don't either understand or care how our country is set up to operate if it doesn't suit their desires.

If you think Gore should have won Florida, take issue with the goddamned idiots who couldn't correctly fill out a simple and straightforward ballot. Which has caused MILLIONS to be thrown at electronic voting machines that are MORE error-prone and do NOT leave a paper trail to recount. If you punch the wrong hole in a ballot, it's your fault, but a computer screen can be mis-configured.

Honestly that very incident will keep me from voting democrat. Bunch of dimwits.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

Damn straight. I wonder if they were thinking of Socrates when they came up with electoral system.
If it wasn't for the electoral college rural areas (most of the US landmass) would have no say at all in Presidential elections.
