If we don't win (and we will) mark my words: It was stolen.
Dems have had leads ranging from 2 to 23% for FOURTEEN MONTHS leading up to this election.
The President's approval rating hovers at 38%
The approval rating for Congress hovers around 20%...and everyone knows it's Republican-dominated.
Last night, **CNN had Dems leading by a full 20%.**
And you think for ONE MINUTE that some invisible Rovian trick can somehow magically make everyone change their minds in the last 24 hours? No. WAY. It is not possible to erase 14 months of Democratic gains in ONE DAY.
If we lose, I don't want to hear a word about how we were weak, or didn't get out the vote, or looked at somebody crosseyed and blew the election because that's BULLSHIT.
If we lose, it was stolen. Know that...and be ready to take action.
13. Well the Civil Rights protesrters had a leader
Martin Luther King Jr
And we have no one. Plus the media was still fluid in those days - the media actaully reported on the events of the Freedom Riders and the King marches.
Is ABC NBC CBS even mentioning the election machinery situation? to them it is still tinfoil hat stuff. The media is now controlled - had the blacks in this country waited to ask for their rights in 2004, they would have been left off the discussion table that is the current day media. (I always feel that the peace marches - as large in numbers as they prove to be are missing the point when they have us protesters stand ina city square or park rather than targeting a news media outlet...)
Of course I always forget that King himself was at one point feeling so marginalized that he decided that the only way to proceed was to take the case to high school aged people
They can do a brazillion calculations a second even in a TI hand held calculator. But suddenly, in the hands of the government and their GOP henchmen, it is going to take days and maybe weeks to add up that which a bunch of people used to do in an evening without the technological "advancement."
HAVA should have been named SAVA...the Steal America's Vote Act.
4. In New Mexico during the 2004 elections, Hispanics
went to the polls and didn't vote for a President about 500% more than whites. In 2004, all the exit polls showed Kerry winning and yet the corporate media mocked anyone who dare suggest the election was stolen. Seems American voters went to the polls and forgot who they voted for by the time they got to the exit polls. :shrug: Is it happening again?
it was stolen again. We riot! Take to the streets! I wont take this anymore. People are fed up all over the country. Just read the stories DUers post here about relatives, neighbors and just plain strangers are converting over to our side. The exit polls will tell the tale.
"we" meaning American citizens and American democracy.
Maybe if they cheat this time Americans will have had enough and will vote in the streets to drive them out. If not today, it will happen, eventually, if we persist. People are beginning to hear that their votes may not be properly counted, and they know enough to know this administration is dangerous.
Sooner or later, if we do not give up -- if not today, then soon -- Americans will reach a tipping point, and it will not matter how they count the vote because we will forcefully make our votes count.
