“Take it from me,” Gore said. “Elections matter.
Every vote matters.”
Every state counts. Every vote counts.
Just in case Democrats needed a reminder of the importance of EVERY VOTE, 2000 Florida “Butterfly Ballot and Chad” victim Al Gore returned to Palm Beach County today to urge Barack Obama supporters to free themselves of the voting demons that plagued Democrats eight years ago.
“Right now we are in the final days of this historic campaign. Don’t let anyone take your vote away from you or talk you into throwing it away. Go and vote early,” Gore told a crowd at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.
On November 27, 2000 Republican Secretary of State Katherine Harris officially certified George W. Bush as the “winner” in Florida by 537 votes.
Since that date, independent investigations by the media have revealed that many illegal votes were counted while many legal votes were not counted.
If the votes in Florida had been counted by non-partisan election officials in compliance with the law, Gore would have won Florida.
Unfortunately, George W. Bush, his brother Governor Jeb Bush, Secretary of State Katherine Harris, a partisan Republican majority on the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Republican-owned media did everything in their power to prevent a fair and legal count of the votes.
In other words, the Republicans used their enormous power to steal the Presidency of the United States. After several recounts George W. Bush was selected by the Supreme Court by a vote of 5-4 to be president of the United States.
YOUR VOTE MATTERS!
