I want to get my 2 cents heard on the mess in Florida, which has made a mess nationwide and worldwide.
As an American, I feel shame and disgrace that this is still going on. Al Gore will stop at nothing to take this election, and I think it’s time for our elected officials and our courts to shut him down. He’s making Richard Nixon look like a saint for stepping down with dignity and grace instead of dragging the American people through all this garbage.
President Clinton and Gore have no class and no honor, as they have both insisted on standing their ground. The American people deserve better. This is not about serving the American people; it is about absolute power and forcing the American people to go through one scandal and legal action after another. It has to stop now. The Florida Supreme Court overstepped its boundaries in redefining the laws instead of supporting the laws that are already on the books. This is just like my kids who change the rules in Scrabble and card games to suit their purposes.
I have had it with these so-called public servants who do nothing but serve themselves. Let’s have a nationwide revote and make it between John McCain and Bill Bradley, as these men have demonstrated ability to concede in grace when it’s over.
To have the courts determine this election is reprehensible and an abomination to the democratic process. How can the United States ever be expected to help another country struggling with fair elections when we have bloodthirsty politicians right here who will resort to lawsuits to take an election. This makes me ashamed to be an American.
So, Vice President Gore, it still comes down to defining the word “is,” right? Your mentor has taught you well. My dogs display more common sense and honor over their food dishes than you do.
