17. Regarding "proof" however...
... if you're bringing up civil cases, and such specifics, I'd think you'd have to agree the only specifics that would matter here would be what could be done about it. And I think the only way anything would get done is if Congress, and the media were convinced (even if Congress were democratically controlled, i think they'd still need a groundswell of support from the media and the people).

The first definition of "proof" in Webster's Online is "the cogency of evidence that compels acceptance by the mind of a truth or a fact". I don't think this would compel acceptance of the 2004 fraudulent election as fact in all but the most progressive minds (unfortunately). The reality is, they need a lot more to be convinced, and likely will never be.
