11. That's right..it will add up! Warren Buffet just said

he would chip in $5.00 and a million of us would do the same if mitt released his Tax Returns.

One thing I feel confident about is the Obama Team Fighting this if there's any of that stealing cheating crap going on.

8. Hope an investigation is not necessary....but just in case, I bet we can


pass the hat here and get some coins to help out with the cause. Maybe some bills, too. In 2004, election night was bad. What was worse was when Kerry caved. Cried for days and haven't felt the same about the electoral system since. Don't trust it. One bit.

38. Maybe if you were in Hawaii! It was the latest concession in modern times if you count

the first Gore concession. There were not votes to claim Ohio with. The Republicans suppressed the vote - that is what led to Ohio early voting to counter just that.

We know they will try, but will they "succeed" ??

I say no concession.

Romney can not win by any other means than
election theft.

18. I think we all bounce back and forth quite a bit.. hope and fear

The information and preparation for such an occurrence
is crucial, and I'm so grateful for those who've paid attention
and researched.

But for some, including me at times, it's so disabling to think
of such a possibility, and better to focus on other actions.
Takes all of us doing whatever we can do, whatever we're
good at.

17. it's easy to get anxious about the machines and the disenfranchising

but I hate the feeling of anxiety and avoid it when I can.

It's been nagging at me, though, and today it hit me
powerfully that Obama doesn't have to concede, even if the
worst happens. Which it won't.

40. You shouldnt

The Free Press will be conducting election monitoring and election defense in Ohio on election day. This is a major campaign and we need your help.

We have:

Access. Through our partnership with the Green Party, our election monitors can be in the polling places, watching the setup, voting, close out, and chain of custody of ballots and electronic ballot boxes. We can watch the tabulation operations at each county board of elections in Ohio. We have the same access as monitors from the Democratic and Republican Parties.

Lawyers. We have a few good lawyers who will be on hand in Columbus and Cincinnati to take affidavits and file for injunctive relief as needed. We will defend election monitors who are wrongfully arrested or harassed by local law enforcement and others in the course of exercising their citizen's rights.

An Operations Center
We have a location with computers, video editing capability for our video the vote project, 2 radio stations and our website to make this project run smoothly.

Experience.
We have been monitoring elections for 8 years. We know all the legal ins and outs, what to look for and where to go.

Intelligence. We have been extensively researching election fraud in Ohio. We are confident that we can send our monitors to where they are needed knowing what to look for.


What we need:

YOU! If you are a registered voter in the state of Ohio, and you contact us before Sunday the 4th, you can be an election monitor and participate as part of our team. There are 88 Counties in Ohio, and thousands of polling places. Get out and be the boots on the ground and help us stop this fraud before it happens. Contact us at truth@freepress.org to get involved.

Money. If you are not in Ohio, but you still wish to help, consider making some small donation to the Free Press. We are a small organization that lives on microdonations. Please earmark your donation for "election defense" so that we may spend your donation in line with stated donor intent. Donations to the Free Press in general wont make us cry either.

Social Media Force Multipliers: We need people to repost, chain email, flike. fshare, tweet, pin etc our election monitoring results. If you are far away you can still have a say.


Remember folks this is your Democracy. Yours to cherish and Yours to Defend. Governments dont defend democracy, Citizens do! Be in touch

Pick you battle based on what best you can do with what you have. Don't waste time on being involved where your best talent isn't served or on frivolous worry.

We know they are trying to steel the election. What can we do now? What can we do later? Do it.

who prophesize with your pen

and keep your eyes wide
the chance won't come again

and don't speak too soon,
for the wheel's still in spin
and there's no telling
who that it's naming

for the loser now
will be later to win,

for the times

36. Obama already won on early voting in Ohio

His justice department fought against voter ID laws and voter purges with some success.

The fear that an event like the 2000 election will occur again is way overblown. The real efforts to steal the 2012 elections are about suppressing minorities and young voters which Obama is fighting with his ground game and justice department.
