US Supreme Court Decides Bush v. Gore (2000)

The Supreme Court's decision in this case ended Florida's statewide recount of ballots cast in the 2000 US presidential election and allowed its Secretary of State to certify Republican candidate George W. Bush as the winner of Florida's 25 electoral votes. Despite the fact that Democratic candidate Al Gore had won the popular vote, the decision in Florida gave Bush a majority of the Electoral College and with it the US presidency. What reason did the court cite for stopping the recount? More...

Maybe with a little less brawn and a little more brain?

What is much more interesting to me, though, than this speculation, is the question, whether an event like the 2000 election disaster in Florida can happen again and make the USA once again a banana republic in the eyes of the world.

What about trust in the law and legal procedures? Looking at more recent events it seems to have gone down rather than improved.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)

And because we now can see the outcome; over a million dead, torture by the CIA, a collapse of the banking system and the automobile industry, and undue poverty for ten of thousands in America. I do not know if it would have been any better, under Gore, but I do know it would not have been any worse.

What if?? Well, perhaps we would of tracked down the perps instead of attacking the wrong country just because their leader was big mouthed arrogant so and so. A secular regime. Incredible! We will never know.
