The court stopped FL from counting votes while they decided, their reasoning was that if the count showed a different winner than their decision determined then that President would be undermined.
They deliberated for a few weeks, then decided that Gore was correct that a state wide recount was in order, but since it could not be completed in time to declare a winner by the required the date, the needs of the nation over-ruled the actual law, this is the only time the court can do this.
So to recap, the court said “stop counting the votes” then they said “there is not enough time to count the votes”.
And half of America said I would rather win than support democracy, and the other half was too afraid of being called “sore loserman” to fight for democracy and the media said democracy is not really very important.
