28. Backup plan: BUST THE MACHINES--VOTE BY ABSENTEE BALLOT!
If enough people do it--if everyone who despises the Bush Junta--60% to 70% of the American people--votes by Absentee Ballot this fall, the reign of these diabolical machines is OVER!

I don't know why anybody expected the Diebold Congress to rescue us from Diebold. I applaud any such efforts, but I'm dismayed at how late they came, and at the lack of a backup plan. Monitoring the elections? Yeah, we did that in 2004. It started this great movement, and is great for the long term educational struggle, but I don't think we have a lot of time left in this democracy. We need to do something NOW!

And a massive Absentee Ballot PROTEST is the only plan I know of for ACTION NOW. If it's big enough, it will jumpstart reform, by pressuring the officials in local/state jurisdictions, where ordinary people still have some influence. FLOOD them with MOUNTAINS of Absentee Ballots, and they will be FORCED to reform, or be ousted from office.

The governor of Maryland (a Repub) is recommending it. So is the Colorado Democratic Party. AB voting is on the increase everywhere (it's up to 50% in Los Angeles) because people DON'T TRUST THESE MACHINES! Let's DO it! Let's make it an overwhelming citizen "vote of no confidence" in Bushite corporate controlled SECRET vote tabulation!

Please see my recent posts on the Absentee Ballot protest:

THROW DIEBOLD, ES&S AND ALL ELECTION THEFT MACHINES INTO 'BOSTON HARBOR' NOW!

BOYCOTT THE MACHINES--VOTE BY ABSENTEE BALLOT THIS NOVEMBER!
