"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

2000: Bush v Gore was finally settled weeks later
On this day in 2000, The Supreme Court finally ended the election recounts after several weeks of partisan politics and marches here there and everywhere.
We remember that The Supreme Court decided Bush v Gore:
“Seven of the nine Justices recognized, as Will puts it, that “the standardless recount ordered by the Florida court – different rules in different counties regarding different kinds of chads and different ways of discerning voter intent – violated the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection of the laws.”” (PowerLine)
At the end of the day, the US Supreme Court correctly stopped VP Gore’s plan, or selective recounts in some counties.
