I have been blogging since November 8th on electionsmoking.blogspot.com I (self employed) had to sacrifice my work hours/earnings and spend time every day to spread the election fraud awareness.
With just 13 days of George Bush getting his deal sealed in the Senate what good will it do if John Kerry steps in now? I am dissapointed with John Kerry.

From the Truthout story:
Perhaps the most significant aspect of all this, from the activist point of view, has been the effectiveness of the telephone calls and letters to Kerry. The activist push to get him involved had a very significant effect on his decision to enter this effort. Likewise, calls to other Senators in order to convince them to join House members in challenging the election have likewise had significant effect. If such an effort continues, the activists involved will very likely see the desired result unfold.
"THE ACTIVISTS INVOLVED" That's us, people! That's Brad and Bev and Clint Curtis and everyone of us who gave a damn and wrote an email, went to a protest or sent a contribution.
Bando, I know it's hard to stay positive. We've been through so much and we have so much ahead. But we've proven that if we are relentless that sooner or later someone will have to listen.
I am so proud of ALL of you!!!

Who's NOT disappointed in Kerry?
But this isn't all about Kerry. It's mostly about whether or not the USA is going to become a democracy.

I'm not judging Kerry, since we don't know what he is doing. This is big and the right moves have to be made at the right time. Patience and under cover are best. He is smart and he knows the game.
He has always done what is best for the country.

Call out the Swiftvets. God bless them.
Seriously, does anybody really BELIEVE that Kerry wants to pursue this during a war. He is trying to do what he does best: tell you what you want to hear without having to do anything.

Call out the Swift Vets? For what? We have enough lies floating around already?
Tell us all, Jim, why are you so anxious to have your country ruled by war criminals?

Right now the truth is on a slow simmer, soon it will be at a full rolling boil.
Feel sorry for our misguided Repugnant neighbors. Soon, the indictments will be flowing like a crisp mountain stream, many of them will mysteriously suicide themselves and others will be jumping off the rat infested boat.
I have no idea what Kerry is up to, but it would be smart to remember that Kerry/Edwards are two very gifted trial lawyers/prosecutors as evidenced by the throughness of their filings. If we've know anything about any of this from the very beginning, we have certainly known that our guy is way smarter than their guy. I would like to believe that, like all good prosecutors, Kerry has just been laying back and building the case. Really, it's not like Kerry wouldn't have seen this all coming from the minute he decided to run.
Did any of you really believe that this would be an honest election?
Listen and learn.

No I never thought it would be an honest election; I thought the Democrats would cheat enought to at least WIN.
Kerry is "laying back" alright! Out on one of his month long vacations realizing that his Senate seat is in jeapardy, his marriage is in jeapardy, his kids no longer speak to one another, and everybody in the DNC just wishes OHIO would go away.

Happy christmas Eve!
I am inspired by the folks who have given their all to this story. I have written letters and signed petitions and spread the word as you guys reported.
and I will continue to do so.
Writing the Senators seems like the next push. I write Kerry regularly also.

Happy Holidays everyone! Looks like Kerry may be giving us a present for Christmas. We sure needed that. It will put some additional clout where needed.
Brad, Thanks again for staying on message and seeing this thing thru. (Clint Curtis). I look forward to learning the new developments each day.

Kerry's biggest blunder that deprived him the white house in 2004 was not responding to 'swift boat vet campaign'. By lying low for the time being Kerry had hoped that the campaign would die down by itself. But that campaign spread like wild fire and did enormous damage to Kerry.
Kerry and/or his advisors had underestimated their rival. George Bush (with Karl Rove) won elections by character assassinations. George Bush's campaign against Ann Richards for Texas governor was down and dirty. So was the Republican primaries with respected John McCain was downright filthy. So here is a guy George W. Bush who can never elucidate 'how good he is' rather has to depend on a campaign strategy that ‘he is less bad’.
Lessons Learned?? I don't know if Kerry has any plan or strategy in place. I suspect Kerry may be too naïve. I am neither a mind reader nor an astrologer. My point is if he does not come from behind the curtain at the right time and make a strong move then the train may leave the station.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Kerry did win. Anyone paying attention can see that. For one of the most liberal politicians there is and an antiwar protester, to win against Rove and all the odds is astounding. I believe John Kerry is just coming into his power.

I was hoping Kerry would win, but didn't trust him because I don't trust the established national order. But I would still rather have someone i am suspect of than someone I already know should be put in handcuffs and hauled off to the jail house instead of the White House. I would love to watch George Bush and Richard Cheney being arrested and read their "rights".
Which is why Kerry needed to lose because they wouldn't want a former prosecutor in the White House snooping around all those 9/11 issues about who knew what and when. Especially when Kerry was already experienced in taking down another Bush family institution, BCCI, and all its dope dealing, money laundering, terrorist financing operations. Oops! Don't forget looking into all the Bush family shenanigans with Riggs Bank, Bin Laden family, Carlyle Group, Saudi Royal princes, Afghan gas pipelines, and "GOD" only knows what else they've been up to or under?

"I believe John Kerry is just coming into his power."
I hope you're right.
"they wouldn't want a former prosecutor in the White House snooping around all those 9/11 issues about who knew what and when."
You are definitely right.

I just want to thank all of you (bloggers/real journalists) who are doing so much to hopefully turn this tide and allow the truth out! I my humble little self have written an email to everyone important and connected to this issue to try to help, and to many big Mc News papers to ask them to please begin journalists instead of paid propadanda mouthpeices. Please don't give up, some good will come, it has to, I hope.

Kerry isn't naive at all. They have to have hard evidence, and they do now. The opposition got nervous, and they caught Triad tampering with the recount...constitutes fraud. I think Kerry will move now. He is smart and stealthy, and he knows how to deal with organized criminals.
His lawyer, from what I understand, for the first time just publically questioned the legitimacy of the election. We shall see.

I wish to thank *you*, Katherine, and the others here like you who are actually *doing* something with all of the information many of us are putting out there!
I've got my hands full, for the most part, just publicizing the info.
The next step requires folks like you raising hell about it, by sending it to the Media, to the Politicians, etc. etc.
This is a people's revolution, and even the "new media" of the bloggers can't do it alone.
The people need to step up.

Kerry is a motivater and he whipped up the enthusiasm and hope of a large part of our population. It is up to all of us to defend our democracy and overturn the apparent results of this election. We have the power.

Anyone with any power of observation knows that Kerry won. Like any victim of a crime, it takes time to process it. I usually think that if the thief needs it that much, let him have it. I've stolen a few peanuts out of the bin at the grocery store, myself.
But a stolen vote is rather a large theft.

AWWWWWWWW! Teresa, you peanut thief! You sure it wasn't a handful! LOL
satwoods...Bush will lose...get over it! We won't be able to slam the voting machine door on Bush's hand, but his electronic re-selection is already tainted far beyond legitimacy.

Hey, Freebird, How'd you know! And now that I'm confessing, there were a few cashews in that handful, too. I have sinned!
And this moron we call a president is, was, and always will be, a loser.
This will all be an unmemorable speck in time.

Yes, it's true winter p.
The reason you might not have suspected, is that the cashews don't leave a trail of skins and shells like the peanuts do.
Or a trail of spins and smells like certain politicians do.

Cashews too? Oh, Teresa! I would never have suspected.
Apparently Freebird is a lot more suspicious than I am!

Freebird: I know this is a very old tread but I just had to laugh. I see Bush is still your President. And Kerry is what he always was nothing!!! In one hundred years Bush will be in the history books as our Pres. Kerry will be a lost name in history.
