I don't think enough credit is being given to how critical a working voting system is to our country.

Proving fraud doesn't necessarily mean you have proven Bush was involved or that Kerry even won for that matter and proving all three points doesn't mean you have convinced a suitable amount of people that such events actually occurred.

So where does that leave us? The country as we know it would now be on hold - laws are now mere suggestions and the people involved in the fraud would act quickly to cultivate existing doubts. Moving to replace Bush with Kerry as president would be perceived by some, ironically, as an attempted coup... before you know it riots in the streets, tanks, big guys with guns, etc.

I guess my argument has boiled down to the infeasibility of Bush being exchanged for Kerry which really only addresses one part my position. My other point is that the preservation of our electoral process (and our country) is a million times more important than Kerry being president. It seems to me that in the name of restoring democracy by replacing Bush with Kerry you dismiss the fundamental role our voting system plays in preserving our country.
