If The Votes Had Been Counted Correctly in 2000
BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
Just imagine, if the votes had been counted correctly....
Nick Berg would be alive
Michael Moore would be making documentaries about Greenpeace efforts, corporate logging, or mad cow disease. His mantle would be missing a Palme D'Or and he would be a happier man.
No one would know Valerie Plame worked for the CIA
Colin Powell would leave a legacy of honor
The most truthful news program would not be Comedy Central's THE DAILY SHOW
"Patriot Act" would refer to someone dressed as Uncle Sam at a July 4th celebration
People would not be choosing between gas and groceries
The national deficit would be a fiction
The soldiers in Guantanamo would be planning for the next exercise instead of checking on prisoners
Camera phones in Iraq and Afghanistan would only be sending home pictures of missed family members
Over 800 US soldiers who have died in Iraq would be alive now, working at home and strengthening the economy. Widowers and widows would have their loved ones, children would have their parents
Over 6000 Iraq natives would be alive
and imagine most of all....just maybe....
September 10th, several terrorists would be taken into custody, and today there would be two towers standing in New York City.
