Give it up! All the votes you claim still don't change a thing.
Give it up!!

Honestly Dad, regardless of the outcome this incenses me. I don't care if it turns out there are 3 million more votes for Bush, this incenses me. Whether it's a Republican conspiracy or just a laissez-faire company, this incenses me.
It's important work, and someone has to pay attention to it. Had this happened in a third world nation, it would turn heads. If we claim to set the standard and example for the rest, we best start behaving like it, and verify that all votes reflect accurately.
Brad, keep it up.

Dad, it isn't about returning to the election of last week, it is about protecting the elections of the future. the nation is mandated by law to switch to all-electronic voting by 2002, and if there are glitches in the system, i want them fixed NOW.
frankly, i'm surprised that anyone who calls themslves an American wouldn't want to make sure our voting system is secure and honest, and that the vote of every American is counted.
Seems like it should go without saying that since we are trying to demonstrate to other countries the benefit of Democracy that we also show them *how*. we can't expect them to be honest and to care about Truth if we don't care enough about it to be vigilant ourselves. this is more important than John Kerry and even George Bush. it's about the future of the country and the sanctity of the vote.
it's crunch time, folks --- do you care more about whether your guy wins, or do you care more about the TRUTH?
me, i try to err on the side of truth. i'm not afraid of the Truth.

one system, one party, one leader? get it?
if your vote is systematically corrupted, and repeatedly so, you are paying (if you happen to pay taxes) for the pleasure and pretense of living in a faux democracy.
where's the pre-election o, so angry kerry, now? he and his party should be leading the loudest charge against an obviously fraud-ridden election process (if one can even call it that).
stealing votes is so easy now - and not a substantive word uttered from our government reps with respect to real, substantive, non-partisan election reform.
