Since due process will resolve it soon enough, it would seem to be a waste of effort to call, especially since most of us are too frugal to make unneeded long distance calls. I suggest that you email him instead. I don't have the address, but I bet if you are smart enough to figure out the butterfly ballot, you can find it on the web. Happy trails.

get it?

-- sheepish (, November 29, 2000.

I believe that Rags has already posted the e-mail address if we read his entire post above...God bless.

-- Lesley (, November 29, 2000.

You are correct Lesley. Voting with a butterfly ballot is probably as easy as reading the original entry on this thread.

There's a country western song called "Get over it", funny too. How does it go, I forgot.

-- Cindy in Ky (, November 30, 2000.

Thanks for the numbers I will tell him never give up the ship. We need to fight that commie Bush to the bitter end.

-- Nick (, December 01, 2000.

Good one Nick! I also will use the number to urge him to battle on! Vicki

What's to get over? Gore won 300,000 more votes across the country than Bush. I'd like to see the guy with the most votes win whoever that may be. I don't like the idea of one state (and maybe one state legislature) choosing the pres. for the whole country.

-- Peg (, December 01, 2000.

i to wish to thank you also for the address, it seems to me that every vote should count. as it stands now they only want to count certain ones, i say give him his right to count every ballot, thats why we voted ,isn't it. this idea of electing a person before all the votes are in leaves the last voters out of the process. to say again what all politions say, your vote counts!! now lets see if it does.

Did anyone notice how easy it was for the state of Washington to do a hand recount. I quess no one tried to stop it.

-- Nick (, December 04, 2000.

We look at the ballots BEFORE we count 'em out here (WA.) Big difference. Then, any recounts are easy....just run them through the machine again.

-- sheepish (, December 04, 2000.

If you could see a map of the U.S. showing the areas carried by Gore and those carried by Bush, you would understand why the founding fathers set up the electoral vote. Unless you want your President elected by Los Angeles and New York, you had better re-think your wish for popular vote to carry the day. Gore's bit of the U.S. was just about that, a little speck of blue here and there, the left coast, and the highly populated very northern states. Just about the entire U.S. flashes red for Bush. Over 2,700 counties went for Bush. Just some over 600 went for Gore.

It is obvious that the repubs have cheated to people of this country out of a fair election. They went to court and got the counting stoped and now there is no time. That is what they wanted to do. Al Gore will be a good looser as the past has shown. I wonder if the commie bush would have been? Gore won't say the repubs were underhanded so I'll do it for him. Bush went against everything he said he was for when the election was on the line. So much for high morals. As far as I'm concerned we won't have a president for the next 4 years. But us serbs carry a grudge a long long time. I'll just sit back and watch people learn about bush for themselves. I found it hard to believe that people on this forum were for a man with such close ties to the CIA. We learned to distrust them in nam.

-- Nick (, December 07, 2000.

Nick, When I watched the debates Gore made it clear that he wants more government, Bush wants less, (now whether either was telling the truth I don't know,) but wouldn't someone who wants more government be tied more closely to communism? I don't know much about nam since I was just coming into this world as it was ending, so I don't really know what you meant. I've been under the impression that military tends to lean more republican, would that be fair to say?

-- Lenore (, December 08, 2000.

What is this about communism? I said commie. When I was little(a long long time ago)we used to play marbles. We had competition and everything. Some of the shooters were called commies. But I noticed that when some of the women talked about their children having trouble going to the bathroom they mentioned it came out like "commies". So basicly a commie is a little turd. Get it? He's not man enough to be a big one.

-- Nick (, December 08, 2000.

Wanda, actually I think the country map colors would be some kind of violet. (I don't have my Crayola box around, but....) It would be mostly red-violet in the middle parts and the south, and blue-violet around the edges to the north, west and east. Remember that not everyone in the so-called red parts voted for Bush. There were also a lot of people who voted for Gore, or Nader, or Buchanan, etc. Just MORE people voted for Bush in the "red parts." Same thing with the "blue parts"...just MORE people voted for Gore. A lot of people also voted for Bush. So I think the real map would be a blending of different portions of red and blue. We are more homogenous than it might seem. And if the country map wasn't done in color, it would of course not be black and white, but various shades of gray. :)

-- sheepish (, December 08, 2000.

Thank you for that Sheepish!

-- Joy Froelich (, December 08, 2000.

Nick, must have been before my time, (I am one of the younger ones on this forum:-) I've never heard it used that way but I've heard people say commie for communists.
