56. No, YOU can speak out anywhere and everywhere.
The power of the information provided to us by TruthIsAll, Freeman, Berkeley Group, Phillips, etc. is in its persuasiveness to the average voter. When you can say to an average citizen that (according to Freeman's analysis of three states), you are twice as likely to win PowerBall with a single ticket as those deviations between the three states' exit polls and their "reported" votes occurred by chance, the citizen will understand that. And using TruthIsAll's earlier analysis of the deviations in sixteen states, that same voter can understand when you say they are 112,500 times more likely to win PowerBall on a single ticket then that those deviations occurred by chance, again they will understand that something is mighty fishy (and rotten) on the Potomac.

What we ALL have to do is to arm ourselves with the facts, think them through to present them in a fashion which is readily understandable and then find as many pulpits (literally and figuratively) to present the information from to the widest and most diverse audiences possible. We have been working hard in Tennessee to do that and the number of opportunities to present the 2004 election theft story continues to grow. That is one reason we are working to organize a national conference here -- to further expand the public awareness of what we know and to allow activists to congregate in order to improve our abilities to speak the same language in the most persuasive ways that we can.

By the way, I am very heartened that the 2004 election theft story is gaining traction. If we can increase the proportion of people who have questions and concerns about the conduct of the election by 50% in the past month (from 20% polled by Gallup in November to 30% polled by Annenberg in December) -- in the presence of MSM silence and/or derision about this issue, we are well on our way to the tipping point. It is incumbent on all of us to hasten that tipping point by speaking out as often, as clearly and as forcefully as we can. The slideshow is a great start,and I've already supplemented it with about ten more slides I've made up that were gleamed from the analyses presented on DU (TIA's and others). (PM me if you want copies of those new slides.)

So that's what we do. We get busy educating our fellow citizens that their pockets have been picked. And there's no reason to wait on the MSM or any other entity to do this for us.
