those who purposely or negligently screw up their ballot are out of

In Florida, they tossed out 180,000 deficient ballots. In Ohio
was roughly 92,000. Washington State trashed about 30,000. California
disposed of nearly 176,000. Cook County, Illinois (home of Gore
hatchetman William Daley) disavowed 120,000. 102,000 ballots
either defaced or marked improperly in Georgia. According to the
Committee for the Study of the American Electorate, up to 3,000,000
ballots were cast incorrectly - or turned in bearing the

These are the votes Al Gore is referring to when he points his
mascara-laden mug at the camera, bobs his head like a toy dog in the
back window of a Buick, and says “All we have asked since election
is a complete count of all votes.”
Right Al, you contemptible cross-dressing Vulcan sociopath. That
would be “all votes” with the exception of overseas military
right? That would “all votes,” with the exception of Florida
that voted Republican, right? That would mean “all votes” with the
exception of votes tossed out in states besides Florida, right?
This is the new liberal party line. They have checked the focus
groups and determined the statement “all votes should be counted”
resonates with the public. It’s a scare tactic, the exact same

if he lost, they would die. He is now telling uneducated voters that,
he loses, liberty is dead.
This, from the most evil, wannabe dictator since Aaron Burr. When
Al says “all votes must be counted,” he is in fact saying “all
must be counted until we are able to illegally declare me the
He is probably the only man in America that asks for a recount upon
hearing “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere.” That “one if by
land, two if
by sea” thing makes him uncomfortable.
It is estimated that, on November 7th last, 1.5 million folks
across the country marked their ‘X” for state and local elections,
left the presidential spaces blank. These are some of the votes Al
counted. In Florida, these are some of the votes he wants turned
to Democratic canvassing boards so they can “determine the intent”
the voter. What Vice President Pea-Brain doesn’t want you to
that if a voter left the presidential column blank, but filled out the
rest of the ballot correctly, it was likely because none of the
candidates met their criteria. Their intent was to ignore the
presidential choice out of protest.
Nearly 100,000,000 people didn’t bother to vote at all in this past
election. I’ll bet, if you asked him, Al Gore would tell you these
people “intended” to vote for him. He might have some basis
there, for if you’re too lazy and ignorant to take the time to vote,
you’ve already displayed personality traits common to your average
“Ignoring votes means ignoring democracy itself,” said Al,
apparently forgetting, as do most liberals, that we live in a
a representative form of government based on the principles of
“If we ignore the votes of thousands in Florida this election, how
can you, or any other American, have confidence your vote will not be
ignored in future elections.” said Al, hoping to drive terror into
hearts of those from whom he and his ilk have attempted to conceal the
true workings of the American electoral process.
Since NO votes have been ignored, this seems a moot point. If you
filled out your ballot correctly, your vote counted. However, if
still uneasy, if Al’s lies have shook you up as he intended, allow
provide an answer to his question.
How can you have confidence your vote will not be ignored in future
Just make sure Al Gore never moves into the White House.
