Face it: Jan 6th was hopeless, stop crying about and get back to work.
On Novemeber 3rd I listened to Ian Rhett's music video "Didn't Know I was UnAmerican" and was crying. But yesterday upon hearing that Bush was officially re-elected by Congress, I did not cry. I knew it was going turn out that way. I knew it was hopeless no matter how many Democrats stood up. Please keep in mind that EVERY Republican Senator and Represntative is in it. I once heard somewhere that last year there was a bill went through both houses that would require every e-voting machine to have an auditable paper trail. Sadly it did not pass because every Republican voted aginst it unanimously.

6. I believe it never came out of committee because the people of
the US hadn't heard of the issue and put no pressure on them to bring it to a debate or vote. Voters of both parties have heard the issue, now, with the challenge on the floor of both houses and the repubs wanting a re-vote (how ridiculous is that request) in Wash. state. I don't think this is a dead issue. We must keep up pressure and write LTTEs to inform the masses.

5. hmm, this quote
"Sadly it did not pass because every Republican voted aginst it unanimously. "
