In early December 2000, Vice President Al Gore conceded the presidential election to Governor George W. Bush. While he was gracious and articulate, he should have foreseen the problems with losing an election he really won.

Instead of conceding, Gore should have told us the following:

"I have not lost this election. There was no election to begin with. You, the voters, have had nothing to do with the outcome.

Tens of thousands of likely Democratic voters in Florida, through no fault of their own, had their names removed from the voting rolls by a project directed by the Secretary of State of Florida, who just happened to co-chair my opponent's campaign.

John Ellis of Fox News convinced his network to call the election prematurely for my opponent. Oh, Ellis happens to be the first cousin of my opponent.

After the official count showed my opponent holding a slim lead, I was entitled to a machine recount throughout the state of Florida. Funny thing happened -- one-third of the counties never bothered to do this mandatory act.

By now you are familiar with the hand recounts, which I requested under Florida law. The United States Supreme Court used an interpretation of the Equal Protection Clause that the majority would never consider for anyone else in our society to stop the recounts.

So here we are. A nation without law. A nation whose real leaders are making decisions without our consent. This does not bode well for our future.

If a president can be installed by means other than law, they can be made to commit actions against the law. Will anything the next administration does be for real?

We must be skeptical of the next president. He will not work for us but instead for the criminals who put him on the throne of power. He will do their bidding, not ours. And his policies will affect later presidents.

What happened after President Kennedy was murdered? We got a new president who escalated the War in Vietnam. And for what purpose? As we found out from sources such as the Pentagon Papers, it was not about communism but about controlling other parts of the world and making a group of people who profit from war even wealthier.

Other assassinations and illegal activities have plagued us since then. Take the October Surprise. The Reagan campaign team promised the Ayatollah in Iran weapons if Iran would keep our hostages there past the election between Reagan and President Carter. This illegal act led directly to the Iran-Contra Scandal in the late 1980s when President Reagan sold weapons to Iran and diverted some of the money to illegally fund the Contras in Nicaragua.

I cringe when I think of our future when we forget the rule of law. If people think I am a sore loser, so be it. Just don't say I did not warn you."
