Let's DEMAND a revote in Washington State Governors race...
...but insist they revote the presidency as a "Quality Check" so numbers can be compared in a highly scrutinized atmosphere. I'm ready to lay money that the presidential count was as buggered there as nationwide and that DUer's could help on fraud watch. A 4-5% vote swing in the presidential would PROVE nothing, but could only help our case in the MSM. And then watch the Repubs start backing and filling, and running for cover...

1. It would have to be done on paper with pens only
though because the machines were jiggered there.

3. I don't see how a re-vote would show
anything about the original vote. I can easily see how 4-10% of the voters in either the Governor or Presidential race would change their vote based on all that happened since Nov 2nd. You just cannot possibly ensure that the people would vote the same way they did on Nov 2nd. So the re-vote may show what the "snapshot" voters' opinion is on the candidates on the day you do the voting, but you just cannot infer from that anything about Nov 2nd vote.

4. I said it wouldn't PROVE anything...
...but a 10% or 15% drop would sure shoot a hole in any "mandate" theories,which in itself would be a GOP black eye...

5. i think that is a good idea a revote
what are we afraid of and the one place dem is in question we all stand and say, re vote. now, bush stole all the nation, what are you gonna give us.

she will win easy. he stole votes from her and she won. but it would have to be way closely monitored and those machines would have to be watched on everything all be open

6. excellent strategy
And if the GOP won't back this idea, we'll know there's rampant FRAUD.
