29. A testable hypothesis exists and here is an attempt... explain what it is and why it matters that we demand the test be done, now:

I agree that "Florida" in 2000 was very likely a 'gambit' -- and IT WORKED.

Once in the 'white house' the available gambits for Bush and Rove to use only expanded, but the one thing they underestimated is that a bunch of smart folk happen care deeply about the franchise -- that has been demonstrated by the types of analysis TruthIsAll, Freeman and others have done. And, corroborating these studies, in the most ironic and unpredictable way imaginable, is the Ukrainian National Election!!!

What we need to do is not be distracted by whether one State or another supports a 'recount' -- what we must do, at a National level, is create a massive, and simple demand "Prove My Vote Counts, Now" and if you don't, We The People refuse to validate the election.

We have the leverage, now we must apply it on a scale never seen in this Nation. I think, just about now, way more than the 55+ Americans who voted for Kerry are ready to call 'TIME OUT.'

All they need is a solid reason to motivate them and we've got it -- use the Ukrainian situation to call on the deep emotion all those Americans have for their franchise, and make that call by simply showing them that the exit polls indicate that what they feel in their guts is correct and that the fact that no one can show them If or How their vote was counted.

The only barrier between where we are now and having that happen is getting the message to The People -- please bring maximum resource focus and allocation to delivering the message in the next 72 hours and don't stop until we have millions of Americans behaving like the Ukrainians. No one can stop us from saving our franchise as long as we don't stop ourselves.
