Democracy in America may be about to be saved because of JOHN KERRY...and
The Congressional Black Caucus, and All of the true patriots - the ordinary citizens of this country who have taken active steps to see to it that the outrageous fraud in this past election will be exposed for all the world to see. As many have pointed out, this has always been about something much bigger than John Kerry, and, as citizens, it has been OUR responsibility to act - but LEADERSHIP DOES matter! (just compare the U.S. under Clinton and Bush II) Kerry can make this issue MAINSTREAM in a way that we simply can't. John Kerry has served this country admirably for most of his lifetime - and if he's as well prepared as one might expect he's likely to be - he'll be offering his greatest service ever. However this ultimately unfolds, I know Kerry has just made my Christmas a little bit cheerier!

Edited on Thu Dec-23-04 02:34 PM by Faye
but don't expect many to. the attitude around here toward Kerry is overwhelming to say the least. some people have no faith in anything.

4. Well, my faith has been more than a little tested...
But I've always known this guy was a fighter - and a true patriot.

2. I certainly hope you're right, EP
I'm not sure about it at all, yet, but I really hope that this is the beginning of a whole lot of crumbling nasty power structures. Hey, a girl can dream at Christmas, can't she? :)

MUST be rectified or it is ALL OVER for this country!

20. What do you

28. Yeah, but Gore is not calling the shots
and the thief is, so Gore is president in exile--which I don't like and infuriates me more than anything. Anyone who couldn't predict our current crisis from the 2000 fiasco--well, I'm not going to finish the sentence because many here didn't and there's no point critisizing now.

7. And to think this morning I was saying there was NOTHING positive
Going on! There was - and just because I wasn't seeing it - I allowed my doubt to consume me.

8. press conference?
Will Kerry hold a televised statement? Doubt it. Will this even be covered on tonight's MSM news ? Doubt it. While I agree it's a step in the right direction ... seems like a baby step to me. But what do I know. Hope for the best... expect the worst.

13. I would bet that Kerry will be holding a press confrence soon.
but I do understand your "hope for the best...expect the worst" philosophy - especially during the Bushitler era!

11. He made a promise.....
Time for payback.

Regardless of the outcome of this election, once all the votes are counted -- and they will be counted -- we will continue to challenge this administration. This is not a time for Democrats to retreat and accommodate extremists on critical principles -- it is a time to stand firm.
I will fight for a national standard for federal elections that has both transparency and accountability in our voting system. It's unacceptable in the United States that people still don't have full confidence in the integrity of the voting process.

I ask you to join me in this cause.

This was in Kerry's letter titled "the next step" that he sent to his supporters on 11-19-04. It took some waiting, but the chips are in place for him to make his move to fulfill that promise. This is a man of his word.

Kerry On!!!! :argh: Triad here we come!

12. you say 'may' be about to be saved?
Elvis 'may' be alive too, you know. Today's filing is nothing but a PR show and window dressing. And a bad one at that, since there's absolutely NOTHING on the major news about John Kerry whatsoever.

This is happening to quiet fraud operatives in the party.

22. my brilliant plan?
NOT to vote, ever again, for a candidate who REPORTS FOR DUTY but caves in after 12 hours.

Too bad the media destroyed Howard Dean.

Certainly not us, and right here is ground zero for fraud operatives.

On edit, to tasteblind: How adroit of you to notice the broken record.

29. I am planning as well, Jan 3 & 6 are going to be very big days for
all Americans, we will save our Democracy or go down fighting for it atleast.

Kerry is our man, our votes went to him, media will come because of him. Support that movement and Kerry, both are one and the same.

24. No matter what the outcome of all of this may be, it will serve
to prove those buzzards for what they are, the party claiming to have superior values & morals will be shown for what they are, repulsive gangsters & thugs. If they had remote access, more of their dirty laundry will be coming out, the big story MSM has been waiting for, the stolen election.

30. I disagree....It's the "Activists" who hold "Al Gore's Banner" High in the
Sky....where we have said: "WE WILL NOT FORGET! WE WILL SHOW THAT YOU ARE THE TRUE PRESIDENT!

What's kept me here was Gore 2000. I think there are others like me...who know that this was the "root" of the Deception. GORE was our true President. Elected in 2000. Nothing will ever convince me otherwise...NOTHING!

33. kerry isnt getting credit yet in my book, and i am a strong
supporter, i like and respect kerry and cool with the choices he makes because i am not an insider. but i dont give kerry saving democracy just yet. i havent seen much effort from him at all. as soon as i see his contribution i will certainly acknowledge, who knows what he has done behind closed doors.
