In Case You Missed It...

(This from co-conspirator John Lawler:)

...The Ohio Election Fraud Scandal has finally made it to the MSM
(mainstream media). …. They couldn’t completely ignore the story, although they’ve tried… Bits and pieces have been reported over the last month, including the fact that the Greens and Libertarians have asked for a recount and it is underway. Problems with that are popping up already (including allegations of tampering). Also, an official lawsuit has been filed with the Ohio Supreme Court. The suit requests that the current "results" be nullified. On this the media has taken some notice, but if you read the CNN link below, you’ll feel the condescension. Meanwhile, John Kerry has officially joined in the effort, though in such a low-key manner that few alarms have sounded. This may be by design, or it may reflect the fact that overturning this debacle will be extremely difficult given that the Ohio Supreme Court is run by Republicans. Still, the story of questionable election 2004 is breaking…

Rep. John Conyers and a few righteous members of Congress are now investigating. Unfortunately the Republicans obviously won’t support Democrat Conyers, regardless of the facts. Now, Conyers is asking for one million emails demanding that the House Judiciary Committee hold full hearings on the 2004 Election. If you can take the time to blast out an
email it might be worth it. Takes about 2 minutes. One or two sentences is all that’s needed.

Most folks know Bush lies, and most folks know he cheated his way through business and politics, but even then many people are afraid to believe that the Republican Party would cheat to win an election (FL 2000 not withstanding). But remember whom we are dealing with here. And remind yourself that Bush was consistently below 50% in all polls prior to the election AND he was losing big in the exit polls… until something just happened and he won.

Remember, power corrupts: Enron cheated, Nixon ’72 cheated, Kennedy ’60 almost definitely cheated, Ollie North cheated, Worldcom cheated, Ted Kennedy lied about Chappaquiddick, Bernard Kerik appears to have been involved in all kinds of monkey business… Yushenko was poisoned, Neil Bush cheated, Schwarzenegger groped, Clinton lied, Saddam Hussein won 99% of the vote, etc. etc. etc.

Here’s a quick list of links to get you up to speed:

All I want for Christmas is a real democracy.

Happy Holidays!!
