I think we have a big problem that's being given lip service only in this country. If 50% of us have lost trust in the ability to count votes honestly, what the hell are we voting for? I think Republicans will have a big problem with this, too, if Kerry wins. What should we do if it's a close vote?

2. No I would not believe it.
Repukes haven't accepted a democratic presidency in many years, so no matter what, If Kerry wins, when Kerry wins, they will not accept his either.

They were upset when Clinton beat Bush 1 and I think it will be worse went Kerry beats Bush 2.

3. Not a chance in Hell.
I think if that happens we will come close to aanother Civil War. This time it will be mostly the "haves" vs the "have-nots".

4. Would I believe it?
Most likely not.... after the last election scam.. I can't trust repubs in office at all.... and as for the repub voters.. I can't trust them.. because their heads are in the sand and won't admit that they have been duped.

So... what does a person do? Keep doing the right thing because its the right thing to do!!! When we die it will make the transition alot easier.

Chimp and his cronies have made it very easy to see the deception. It also has defined those that have been blinded or benefit from supporting them... as in druggie.. rush or the O'really Factor, neither has ever found fault with the conservatives..

5. So much depends on everything
that happens between now and November 2nd.

Notice how much of the Bush side of the campaign is focussing on such weighty issues as just how presidential Kerry appears.

Every possible weakness will be exploited, even if not relevant to the job at hand. And of course, they have Fox news on their side, whose lies go out unchecked.

There are so many ways to steal this election, most of which would seem perfectly legitimate in the end to most people. That's why we here at the grass roots level mustn't let up our watchfulness for one moment. We must work as hard as we can for candidates at all level: House, Senate, state legislatures, and so on.

If Bush remains in office and has a Republican House and Senate, it's all over. We will either go quietly into the camps or will need to start an open rebellion in the streets. But if the House and/or the Senate can come out with a Dem majority, then there is some hope. Not much, considering the collective behavior of those Dems in the past three years, but a little.

The other thing we need is exit polling, and I doubt that's going to happen. Maybe MoveOn.org can do something there.

6. why on earth would i?
it's proven they stole the last election with a 21st century version of jim crow -- why would expect different behavior now.
all they've learned is that they can get away with it.
