Everyone Should Care, Republican or Democrat, Horse or Goat

It would be easy for Republicans to stand back and call our demands for recounts, black box software, and electoral reform sore losing.

But if you ever hear that, call them a commie pinko. Because every American should care whether the votes were counted properly, whether the machines were accurate, or worse, rigged, and whether we have an electoral system as pathetic as say, Afghanistan, or if we are an example of how a democracy should run.

It's not a partisan issue. Ask anyone whether they think there should be paper trails on voting machines. I'll lay $20 on 95% of them saying "hell yes." That alone should do it.

If your Republican friends really believe they won the election, they should be happy to protect America by supporting investigations of voting systems that were declared unsafe for democracy. Anything less makes them hypocrites. And don't be afraid to say it.

If you are truly "conservative," then you want to conserve our Constitution and the protections it affords. At base, it's the right to vote and to have that vote counted.

If not, you must believe you are above the law.

And that makes you a criminal, remember?

    Come on...you and I both know that fair, accurate counts/recounts are only something desired by those who care about fairness. The GOP won, why should they care if it was fair. These are the same folks who try to scare off voters they think will vote for the other guy (http://tinyurl.com/6t6zv)
