108. The question is -- WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
The election was obviously stolen. Evidence is surfacing galore of all kinds of voter fraud that went into that exit poll discrepancy. Perhaps the STRONGEST evidence of systematic fraud is the media lockdown of the issue -- that's what a system like ours (a PRETENDED free society accompanied by "cultural defense mechanisms" about paranoia, cynicism, personal attacks on critics, etc -- just to help maintain repression of the fact truth and people's effective pursuit of the issues in an authentic democratic way) is IN ITS ESSENCE.
Now, strategically, ANY suit will be cast aside by the judicial aspect of the political machine. But some lawsuits are winning cards and more politically effective than others -- and are verboten from even being filed for that very reason. THOSE ARE THE SUITS NOW THAT MUST BE PURSUED AND WIDELY PUBLICIZED AND SUPPORTED

In particular, a class action lawsuit in Ohio on behalf of all voters discouraged from voting by the systematic deprivation of adequate voting machines in overwhelmingly Democratic precincts. Voting rights groups like the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and Jesse Jackson and many others must be pressured NOT to repeat the default of Fla 2000, when a class action lawsuit on behalf of all disenfranchised black voters in Fla was never filed. (There was also a transicionalista methods of discovery scam going too -- all of the DISADVANTAGES of the old but none of the ADVANTAGES of the new for progressives). This year, the voting machines issue is palpable, yet ignored because we have a Nero-at-the-Olympics system, as in 2000 and in 1988. Indeed, routinely you have elections where the outcome is arranged, with the election itself fiddled when other means are insufficient, and then cashed in on as a "mandate". That IS the system, not the exception.

And there must be massive mobilization in places like NYC and DC and LA to confront the central points of the national media with masive public protests about their media lockdown, and about this lockdown as the essence and not the exception in the media system of "justifying the lying".
