The state of Florida should have a revote for our United States President Its November 9th and the United States still does not have a President-elect The nation is divided and in absolute disarray-some even feel disenfranchised It seems as if the choice of our new president has fallen exclusively on the state of Florida which has a meagre 25 of the 270 votes needed to win the presidency This is an outright unfair burden to Florida as they will be held responsible for what the future president does for the next four years I will attempt to explain why this happened and why another outright vote is needed to ensure democracy for the United States of America The vote for President in the United States is not geared or prepared for close elections Under our current system it is possible to obtain a 269 electoral vote tie although the probability of that happening is considered slim The election process has many fazes that discourage this kind of thing from happening Our system is primarily a two-party system we do provide for third parties however The effect of third party candidates and the Electoral College itself discourages any scenario of an even split or tie So why are our candidates virtually deadlocked There are more than a few answers to this question the most noted being that while the candidates did differ on most issues they were similar on spending most of our budget surplus as well as military spending among others While the similarities were not directly pointed out there was an under current of voters that felt like they were voting for a lesser of two-evils Combine that ideology with the fact that the most noted third-party candidate Ralph Nader received only 3 of the vote nationally and you have potential for disaster The lesser of two-evils thinking produced unforeseen results with Al Gore losing some democratic states including his own yet
