Dear President-Elect Obama,
If that is what you want us to address you as on that hopefully, quite awesome early Wed. morning in November, you must get your honest ELECTION LAWYERS and County tabulator counters in place ASAP! THEY WILL TRY TO STEAL IT AGAIN! With all the posts of proof of theiveries again so much in our faces recently, let me reiterate:

THEY WILL TRY TO STEAL IT AGAIN!!!!!!

However, "the math" will be wrong, because there's no way in hell that McCain't can possibly win more votes than you! No way in Hell!!!!!

Get your troops together-don't cave the next day, please!

THEY WILL TRY TO STEAL IT AGAIN!!!!!

1. It is both ironic and fortuitous that we have an African-American...

...as the Democratic candidate for President. By virtue of his race, he will be very familiar with the concept of having to work twice as hard and be twice as good to merely be perceived as equal. I wouldn't be surprised, therefore, to discover that Obama is working flat out to ensure he gets at least twice as many votes as McCain, which (even with widespread election fraud by the GOP) should be just enough for Obama to "squeak by" in what the MSM will continue to characterize as a "horse race."

As for fixing the electoral system before November, I can't see that happening. The issue keeps failing to get traction where it matters. I do share your frustration, for what it's worth.

2. Weren't we promised up and down that in 2004 there would be lawyers all over the country
for the Democratic Party to prevent another stolen election, and then we had our pocket picked again? Getting your pocket picked again when you are all but told that it will happen and then it does is hardly something to be proud of. So it really, really won't happen again this year? There would be an actual fight this time by Democrats?

3. I'm hoping there will be a real fight.
If not, citizens will take to the streets. A THIRD TIME IS unthinkable!

4. The idiot Dems see no problems....
Edited on Sun Jul-20-08 05:18 PM by GreenTea
The democrats had eight years to scream loudly and two years controlling congress to address this real and incredible neocon republican tactic, the stealing of our votes...

Votes have been suppressed, uncounted, manipulated and hacked everywhere in this country by republicans and their voting machines and tactics....The republicans just got the conservative (republican) US Supreme Court to allow that it's legal if states want voters have to have a photo ID in order to vote, knowing very well that it will keep many poor & elderly democratic voters from voting.

Every little tactic the republicans use adds up, to suppressing votes and untimely the republicans stealing the election with their easily hackable, non-traceable republican OWNED electronic voting machines!!

But get the people or democratic leaders to believe it. All one can do is try and motivate others, most just refuse to believe the obvious.

How many said that when the Dems took back congress in 2006, "there's no electronic voting machine problems, cuz the Dems won back congress"....

Even through republicans stole congressional races all over the country in 2006, and their losses would of been a lot larger and the Dems would have had an even larger majority today, if it were not for their electronic voting machines, the republicans hacked & stole many of those races they "won".

The republicans laugh and know over 90% of Americans vote on republican corporations (Diebold & ES&S) owned machines along with the same republicans corporations who own the proprietary software that the easily hackable machines run on!

But people just refuse to believe it and the media NEVER discusses it.

The REPUBLICAN WRITTEN - Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002 has made it easy for the republicans and the republicans fight any changes in legislation at every turn to help them steal elections....

And why not? The republicans are getting away with it!!!

5. I guess that's why the GOP are looking smug. They know they CAN steal the election
or even disrupt the election to the point of chasing voters away.

6. Democrats control all of the key state governments, except for Florida
So yes if it comes down to Florida again, they can steal it, but otherwise probably not. Ken Blackwell and their ilk won't have their hands all over the vote counting this time.
