Go here to see the Unseen Al Gore Campaign video from 2000, by Spike Jonze.
Remember that Gore got more votes in 2000, and if the vote-counting in Florida had not been halted 5-4 by the Republicans on the Supreme Court, that Gore would be President. (This isn’t even counting the 90,000 votes that Nader took just in Florida.)
Think about how the country would be different today if Gore had become President.
9/11 probably would have been prevented. There would be no war in Iraq even if 9/11 had happened. 100,000+ Iraqi civilians, 2500 Americans, how many Iraqi soldiers? would not have been killed, etc.
We would be actively fighting global warming. We would be MUCH less dependent on Middle East oil.
The country would have continued paying off debt. We might have already payed of the entire national debt by now. Instead we just went to 9 TRILLION in debt. We currently pay well over $250 billion per year just for interest. Think of what that $250 billion could be used for. (See below.)
We would probably have national health insurance for everyone now.
Average incomes would not be declining. Househod debt would not be rising. We wouldn’t all be worrying about losing our pensions. Do you think our jobs would be moving overseas?
This list could just go on and on.
Just think of all the consequences to the country of Bush taking office!
