6. Let's look at some REAL numbers
New York voted for a Governor, Attorney General, State Controller, 2 US Senators, 29 Members of Congress, 60 State Senators, 150 Assembly members, and I have no idea how many local offices. Of those there were, by my count, two House seats and three State Senate seats that were close enough to require manual recounts. If its your allegation that we don't really know how many races were too close to call, you're saying that our candidates were too stupid or cowardly to challenge the machine count. In my view, we lost the old-fashioned way: by having voters throw us out of office because we didn't actually stand for something in the campaign.
