17. You mean when they don't have the spine to stand up against illegal
actions? Yes, unfortunately from the vantage point of a Kerry foot soldier in Franklin County Ohio after election day. I felt abandoned and ashamed that my party that I touted so ardently through the campaign failed to stand up, as they promised, to make sure every vote was counted. The war, the patriotic act, the election, alito, censure-it's like they are trying to alienate their base. I don't ever think they will motivate their base to GOTV like was done in 2004. "We Can Do Better" rings as hollow words now. It is very difficult to motivate people to go door to door canvassing and phone banking. Without addressing the issue of corrupt elections, I'm afraid GOTV will be for naught.
