Sorry Sheepish - But It Appears to Be Over (FL Vote) : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

The Miami-Dade County Election Committee has just voted not to continue any, repeat any, manual recount. They will revent to the vote count previously submitted to the Secretary of State. There are not nearly enough extra votes for Gore in the other two counties to catch Bush. Therefore it appears to be over. George W. Bush is our next President.

Just consider this to be a news alert. Don't post further except to the Political Chat Forum.

P.S. Well, I just might end up eating these words. Apparently Gore is going to fight to the last man. It may come down to the Florida Legislature.

I just did a FL dem style answer count. It appears there were no hanging answers or dimple answers suggesting intent. The count stands at zero.

Consider this.

Some of us live out in the woods and can't see the forest for the trees. We live in a Socialist Dictatorship now. The new dictator is Al Gore. The count will continue until this happens, and as usual most of the American public will be sound asleep by then. If this can not be accomplished by boring us into a deep sleep there are tons of other tricks that the current dictator will use to deliver the crown to his stooge, up to and including the suspension of the constitution of the United States of America by executive order.

Be sure of two things:

1. It ain't over till it's over (when Al wins)

2. It's all about money.
