251. The thing is
even if this can't swing the election (and frankly, I suspect it won't because we won't have enough time), it is vitally important that we get this out there right now, loudly, for two reasons.

1. to get the momentum so that e-voting without a paper trail is seen as the insanity it is. If we don't get the publicity right now, while the publicity getting is good, there won't be the funds and the congressional investigations to get it gone.

2. We need to undermine Smirky Shrubface and his evil minions rhetoric about a mandate. We need to make people doubt, doubt, doubt.

It is highly likely that this election was stolen. It is also highly likely that about 47% of the people who voted, voted for the village idiot, so this country is in serious need of some good therapy. They are likely to get it through the tough love therapeutic model. We, unfortunately, get to go along for the ride. But you and I can take some of the sting out of it by being activists for this vitally important cause.
