I was so confused, I think I voted for the wrong guy!!!!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
Every Republican must call their board in charge of elections and tell them: I made a mistake while voting, the ballot was confusing, and I demand a re-count. No, better a re-vote. Call your newspaper, call your congressman. If the Democrats can do it, so can we. Let's throw this whole thing in the garbage where it belongs. Think Republicans, think. This election is about to be stolen from you because you will not act!!!!

Yes, you are confused. The election was already stolen from Gore, and the whining Republicans will not give it back.

The problem with that graph, where it misleads, is it does not take into consideration percentages based upon number of votes cast in each county. I am told by a source who lives on Capitol Hill (on a park bench across the street) Palm Beach county had approximately 400,000 votes cast. That makes for fewer than 1% of all votes cast for Buchanan. Very believable, IMO.
I've tried to verify this number but the State of Florida Elections web site is still down.

The question is why is doing something stupid considered to be fraud? As JFK said: Life is unfair. Tough. In NM Gore won by 5000 votes. Should we do a recount there too. A lot of the states have Gore winning by very small margins. Don't hear much about them.

The stupid shouldn't have special rights. You punch two holes for two candidates, then your ballot is rejected. You can't review the ballot two weeks ahead of time, then you loose. Too bad, but I get tired of the democraps whinning for the special additional rights of stupid people. You have a question, then F****** ask! Thank you our public school system.

The stupid shouldn't have special rights.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- A 12-year-old developmentally disabled girl was grabbed, beaten and sexually assaulted by nine boys after school, police said.
The suspects, ages 11 to 16, allegedly grabbed the girl on school grounds Oct. 25. All but two of the suspects attend the middle school where the girl takes special education classes.
The boys first slapped and kicked her, police said Tuesday. They then took her to 11 different locations, including bushes and a shed, and allegedly took turns assaulting her.
''After a while she just kind of went with them,'' police Lt. Russell Lopes told the Contra Costa Times. ''She didn't know any better.''
Seven of the boys were arrested during a two-week investigation into the attack. Police are searching for two more suspects. Charges are expected to include rape, kidnapping, false imprisonment and sexual battery.
Police said the girl kept the secret for two days until her mother got her to talk.
The news comes one week after news that a developmentally disabled 13- year-old girl in Marietta, Ga., was lured into an apartment building and raped by more than 20 men and boys.

We all have rights, abosof**kinlutely! I don't consider the disabled stupid, never did. I believe that disabled people are ever smarter than most idiots walking the planet. Disabled people do deserve special additional rights.
I talking about the idiots who punched two holes and now want a revote. These stupid idiots don't deserve special additional rights. NO WAY! If we allow this, then what about the people who didn't get to the polls, because their state was already "called" by the media? What about their intent (the people's intent to elect the prez) They should get to revote too, afterall they really wanted to vote but circumstance prevented it. What about people stuck in a snow storm? They should get to revote too, afterall they really intended to vote.
People who state "I was so confused, I think I voted for the wrong guy" should not be able to re vote. End of story.
