Good news: * poll numbers down. Bad news: We don't vote at the polls
Elections are taking place inside little Diebold boxes that we don't control -- why don't the Democratic leaders get this yet?

Of course, the Corruptlican leadership is unresponsive to our wishes -- they know what the rest of the country doesn't know...

THEY WILL STEAL 2006 UNLESS AMERICA STOPS VOTE MANIPULATION NOW!

1. I agree. Manipulation of elections should be top concern
Nothing - NOTHING - else matters unless we have honest elections! A cute slogan, an excellent plan, great candidates all mean nothing if the elections can be tampered with.

Change has to happen before November!

3. My guess is
that too many people still rely on the MSM for their news and not enough people check in on forums like this one.

My wife is a regular visitor here and a lot of our conversations would start with "I saw on DU" or "On DU..." I wondered what all the hubub was about and started lurking, reading posts, checking on what else was out there.

I'm glad that I did. While I've always considered myself to be a Dem/Lib, I think that I'm a lot more informed now than I had been.

But, the trouble is, too many people aren't more informed. Until CNN starts talking about Diebold fixing elections, "Joe Redstate" isn't going to hear about it.
