America lies in the wake of the impending presidential election, which has been shrouded in controversy from its infancy. FBI investigations, leaked emails, private recordings, rape allegations, and indubitable untruths have pledged both front-runners. Despite the foul taste left in the mouth of many Americans by Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton, they have come out victorious in their campaign to represent their respective party as the nominee for president. While it was once widely believe that the American people democratically elect the president of the United States, through current influences such as the media, Internet, and growing population an exuberant amount of Americans believe that their vote no longer counts, thus posing the question who’s really in control of the electoral process? In the past, the call to question of the integrity of the electoral processes was strictly reserved for the most devout conspiracy theorist, but with the pullulating concerns over super delegates, average sound mind Americans are not sure the full truth is being told. Has America been fed at noble lie? A simple answer yes, a more complex answer America has been fed a misconception disguised as a lie.
As in the past, the media was covering the all important election. They had always relied on exit polls as the polls closed across the nation. In reality, the Florida results were just too close to call. Nevertheless, that did not stop the media from doing so. Not once, but twice, major news media outlets were erroneous in their report. Around 8pm, it was declared that Al Gore was the projected winner of the electoral votes in the state of Florida. However, a couple of hours later, the projection was retracted and restated as Florida as being too close to call. Then, just after 2am on November 8, the mistake was made for a second time. The major networks declared George W. as the winner. This even led to Al Gore calling the Governor to concede. However, as Gore prepared to address his supporters in Nashville, Tennessee, he was alert to the shrinking numbers in Bush¡¦s lead. The final total was now less than one half of a percent lead in favor of Bush. That immediately calls for a recount of votes under state law. Subsequently, Gore called Bush and retracted his concession. It wasn¡¦t over yet! One thing was, Al Gore had prevailed in the popular vote but without Florida¡¦s tally, the electoral vote was up in the air. The election wasn¡¦t over and the recounts began.

Everything from the machinations of the party to the actions of their voters, such as the riots that had slowed the recount and thus eliminated what precious little time it was allowed[3,4], lead to the slow yet eventual death of Gore’s chance at the presidency. The entirety of the affair was rigged in opposition of the Democrats, yet even so the race was considered

The 1968 election was the beginning to the end of the era of zealous abundance of corruption. Government agency has had mob bosses on the payroll, vise-versa. Smear campaigns backed by “Communist sympathies”, were a political agenda. While, the media controlled the discourse of Washington. Secret campaign committees, political espionage, blackmail, and private budgets were a social norm for a congressional candidate; if a politician had the media’s ear, he would also share the public eye. This led to an age of vice and scandals. To avoid the merciless backlash from the media politicians danced over “bureaucratic red tape”, and left the public to fill in the gaps or remain aloof. The politicians developed a cavalier outlook on the
A Bush vs. Gore election, a completely unfair and illegitimate political race. Fighting for the final battle in Florida, winner claim to be the next president of the United States.

The presidential election of 2000 rose great suspicion due to its call for a ballot re-count in the state of Florida. The legitimacy of this election is considerably debatable in terms who truly won between Republican George W. Bush, and Democrat Al Gore. This correlates to the fact that 175,000 of Al Gore’s votes were deemed as “uncounted” raising suspicion among the Democratic party. Coincidentally, citizens of Palm Beach Florida became outraged as they became suspicious that their votes were counted incorrectly. As many of these citizens claimed they had voted for Gore, the ballots show they voted for Republican, Pat Buchanan. Due to this, a re-count of all ballots took place, thus leading to nationwide confusion as to who truly won.

The presidential election of 2000 stands at best as a paradox, at worst as a scandal, of American democracy. Democrat Albert Gore won the most votes, a half million more than his Republican opponent George W. Bush, but lost the presidency in the electoral college by a count of 271-267. Even this count was suspect, dependent on the tally in Florida, where many minority voters were denied the vote, ballots were confusing, and recounts were mishandled and manipulated. The choice of their leader came not from the citizens of the nation, but from lawyers battling for five weeks. The final decision was made not by 105 million voters, but by a 5-4 majority of the unelected U.S. Supreme Court, issuing a tainted and partisan verdict.
The history of the United States is one of mixed virtue. We have a republican form of government in which congressmen are directly elected by the people and the president is indirectly elected by the people. We also have a higher standard of living than many nations. But this does not make our history a cleanly pristine one considering the institution of slavery, a lack of civil rights for minorities, and the denial of women’s suffrage, that were once a part of this nation’s existence.
Government corruption has been going on for too long and only got worse when President Obama walked into office. The people haven’t seen freedom in this country for a long time. We have been lied to many times and the people have been brainwashed by false information by the media. America has increased in corruption, the email scandal with Hillary Clinton, and Obama wanting to pardon Hillary.
