The dredging up of the Florida vote at this time, who won and who lost, is an exercise in futility. However since you brought up I should remind you that even discounting the dirty tricks that Jeb Bush and his fellow conspirators played to keep many blacks from casting their votes. There were over 2000 votes that went to Buchanan which were meant for Gore because of the design of the infamous butterfly ballot. Did Bush win in Florida? I ask you.
First, I did not bring it up. I responded to the gentleman who did.
Second, despite detailed investigations, not ONE black person was found who was legally registered to vote in FL who was denied that right. NOT ONE. Numerous complaints of attempts to prevent them from voting were made, but no single person was shown to have been prevented from voting. Check your facts.
Third, you are asserting an assumption regarding the "butterfly ballot". Nobody knows who cast what votes, so neither you nor anyone else knows for whom any vote was intended.
Fourth, as I stated before, yes, Bush did in fact win FL, and the Presidency.
I understand that you are unhappy with that result, but that is no reason to ignore the facts that exist. If you wanted to know the truth you could look it up. No offense, but my guess is you won't, because many people seem to prefer their own opinion of reality to reality. I don't mean that as an insult, I just can't find a better way to describe the reluctance of so many to accept what is so easily verified and so patently true.
