99. Oh, absolutely correct that it was the Bush bro Florida connection and the Supremes

that put the final nails in the 2000 election coffin, but that opening for their chaos started before the election with Nader and his lies about both parties being the same. It provided the GOP a razor thin margin to exploit, which was all they needed in a state with a Republican governor named Bush. ----As an aside, I did LOL at your out-of-context comment that I said Nader beat Al Gore. Such out-of-context conclusions seem to be the hallmark of the independents, which is probably why they haven't gained much traction to date.----

Look, I'm mainly saying that some kind of continuity of government that most closely matches your ideals should be "inspiring". It's obvious from the 2000 election until this 2016 election that the progressives/Democrats have the edge in terms of the popular vote. The GOP obviously knows that and that's why the GOP is busy trying to redistrict, implement stricter voter ID laws and all manner of obstructions to get elections close enough to exploit in their column. So what is a strange sense of entitlement is to expect people voting for Democrats should only consider the current progressive purity standards instead of winning elections.
