Edited on Wed Dec-29-04 01:25 AM by bettyellen
loving your daily thread, it, thanks so for all the work. found this after much searching under "deanpeople" it has an autosend fax or email to your own state's reps and some other good stuff. it also encourages you to ask for a meeting with your senator, too. corzine moved to my town recently, hmmmmm. ha! why not? /

Send a Message to Members of Congress: Declare Your Intent to Object to Tainted Electors on January 6th, 2005!
As representatives of We the People, they must reject the results of discriminatory elections.

On January 6th, 2005, when the members of the House and the Senate convene to count the electoral votes, it is more than a mere formality or ministerial responsibility; they have a positive duty to judge the legality of those votes. It is up to each member of Congress to independently judge whether or not electors are lawfully appointed. /

As stated by the member of Congress who introduced the electoral count act in 1886:
The power to judge the legality of the votes is a necessary consequent of the power to count. The existence of this power is of absolute necessity to the preservation of the Government.
--18 Cong. Rec. 30 (1886)

Elections are intended to measure the will of the people, not the will of the candidates; therefore, it does not matter if a candidate has conceded. Until Congress carries out its duty to count and judge the electoral votes, the 2004 Presidential Election is not over.

To ensure that We the People have the last say in this election, we are asking that you contact the members of the Senate and the House to:
Remind them that their duty judge the electoral votes, and their moral obligation to uphold the principle of consent, requires that they object to the appointment of electors from any state where serious questions about the election results persist, or where allegations of fraud or voter suppression are pending.

Ask them to affirm their intention to carry out their duty by publicly endorsing the following "Declaration of Intent" or by making an equivalent public statement.
