    You Republicans believe in federalism.....until you DON'T!! The SCOTUS very improperly intervened in a STATE election. Whenever you Republicans talk about the sanctity of the electoral college, you are always talking about how the Presidential election is SUPPOSED to be decided by FIFTY INDEPEPENT statewide elections. Indeed, that IS the way it is supposed to work. Except that that was VIOLATED in 2000, in a VERY direct and fundamental way.

    Muh, Russia.

    Florida is a Democrat lie. Recount after recount and GW was still leading, and the Florida SCt kept allowing more recounts. That is fact. SCOTUS finally had enough as the Florida SCt was making a mockery of recounts.

    In the end, the Florida Legislature would have voted in new electors who would have voted for GW.

    Not quite how it was. It was the Florida SCT making a mockery of the election by ordering more and more recounts. Had SCOTUS not stepped in the results would have been the same as I have twice explained.

    This:

    ... the Court ruled that there was an Equal Protection Clause violation in using different standards of counting in different counties and ruled that no alternative method could be established within the time limit set by Title 3 of the United States Code (3 U.S.C.), 5 ("Determination of controversy as to appointment of electors"), which was December 12. The vote regarding the Equal Protection Clause was 7–2, and regarding the lack of an alternative method was 5–4. Three concurring justices also asserted that the Florida Supreme Court had violated Article II, 1, cl. 2 of the Constitution, by misinterpreting Florida election law that had been enacted by the Florida Legislature.
