24. Central Vote Tabulation: uncovering the method
Firstly, thank you for your considerable and persistent effort to build a framework within which others can begin to grapple with what happened to the franchise of our democracy on '2 Nov 2004.'

You, Professor Freeman, Alastair Thompson with Ed Shalom and others have grounded all our concerns in a basis of analysis. A few others, like myself, have attempted to hypothesize about the mechanisms that might produce the results, the actual results of votes tallied that diverge significantly from the predicted outcome.

Much has already been written about the irony of SoS Powell, Senator Lugar's and others pronouncements about the validity of 'exit polls' in the current Ukrainian election and the lack of any voice to that same issue in the US National election .

Recently, I've attempted to contribute by requesting that everyone ask their neighbors, friends, family, media, etc., three simple questions:

1. Did you vote;
2. Do you remember for whom you voted;
3. Do you Know If and How your vote was Counted.

Those questions are a method, a device to attempt to bring a massive outcry for "Prove My Vote Counts, Now".

It has another tightly linked utility -- I, and others, want exhaustive investigation, BEFORE the election is declared valid, of not only the central tabulating systems , but of all telecom logs, and other access logs, pertinent to whomever had access to those systems. Discussion can be found here:

The point is that to declare the election invalid what the stakeholders in the franchise need to realize is that the core of the tabulating process, in Every County in Every State, is suspect at best, and could well have been accessed inappropriately .

So, I urge all of you to leverage the outstanding efforts of TruthIsAll, Prof Freeman and others and focus intense and unrelenting pressure on your Congressional representatives, the media, your respect State SoS and AG, and others on the fact that the most fundamental method by which We The People conduct our Constitutional business is not just broken but is the very reason why all our other Constitutional rights are threatened with extinction.

Thank you.

"It's about America" -- currently on life support and in need of massive, focused, heroic and immediate treatment
