to demand a hand recount of the entire country.
So far in every place that has had to recount the votes by machine, they rarely can come up with the same number twice. This is unacceptable, especially for something as simple as the tabulation of votes. We are not talking rocket science, this is basic elementary school math.
Remember our elected and appointed Election officials assured us, numerous times before the election, that these electronic voting systems were totally reliable. These officials must be held accountable. They must be forced to do their jobs and enforce the law. It is unacceptable to obstruct the right of the public to count every vote. If they refuse to take action now, it is time to go to the courts. Any election official who is purposely preventing the execution of a fair and free election must be forced to resign, the sooner the better.
This Monday, once everyone wakes up from their Tryptophan stupors, it will be time to go into high gear. We need to blast the media, the FEC, all Supervisors of Elections, and anyone else you think that matters.
Everyone is looking for the smoking gun, this election was more like a nuclear explosion. It's not just one thing. It is a pattern of behavior over a long period of time. There is enough evidence in the public record to prove that the Bush Campaign did everything in their power to prevent people from voting and to manipulate the results of the election.
Here's some contacts for filing complaints and such. Please feel free to add any other contact info to this thread.
Let the fun begin.
