Game is just about up

The Al Gore circus in Florida is practically over. All that is left is for Gore to concede. The election in Florida should have been certified on Nov. 14.

Florida ballots were designed to be machine counted, not hand counted. The machines throw out ballots that are not completed properly, as the machines should do. If a person is too dumb to submit a ballot correctly, that person is not smart enough to be voting anyway. The machines are totally impartial and by the law of averages should have thrown out an equal number of votes on both sides – unless you would say that Democrats are just more stupid than Republicans.

The Democrats say that they represent the will of the people, that they want to be fair and that every vote should count. If you hand count just the ballots in four selected predominantly Democratic counties, what about the will of the people in the other 63 counties in Florida?

It looks to me like the Democrats are just interested in the will of the Democrats in four Florida counties. And how about the military ballots that the Democrats wanted thrown out? How blatantly unfair!
