ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court's unsigned 2000 opinion in Bush v. Gore to justify equality more broadly. It is said that the court's decision on the matter was limited to the present circumstances and to address the problem of equal protection in election processes under the Fourteenth Amendment which manifest many complexities in general. Although it is foreboded that the court might lose the nation's confidence in its role as an unprejudiced guardian of the law, the court indeed gained a troubling degree of confidence in itself.
