Some observations of the 2004 election
Examining the results of this election reveals some striking details that should make everyone who opposed Bush very concerned. In 2000 Al Gore received 51.00 million votes, in 2004 Kerry only received 55.7 million. The 2.5 million Nader voters who left him did not simply evaporate. Nader supporters are intelligent progressives who oppose corporate rule and the two-party system, but knowing the stakes this time around, it was very predictable they would abandon him.

Call it what you like, Democracy or Constitutionally Limited Republic - we're in deep shit!  

"Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything." --Russian Dictator Joseph Stalin

John Kerry lied. Big surprise, huh? He gave his concession speech before all the votes were counted. It isn't John Kerry's right to concede OUR vote. Will someone please remind him of that? If he doesn't want the job of President, I'll take it!

Are Concession Speeches Legally Binding?

Nov 4 - Kerry Won. . .Palast’s investigation suggests that if Ohio’s discarded ballots were counted, Kerry would have won the state. Today, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports there are a total of 247,672 votes not counted in Ohio, if you add the 92,672 discarded votes plus the 155,000 provisional ballots -by Greg Palast

Kerry won. Here are the facts.

**For those of you who didn't pay close attention - Ohio Secretary of State Blackwell was the Associate State Chairman of the Bush-Cheney campaign.**

*In addition, Ohio Secretary of State Blackwell helped the Republican Party in Florida in 2000, he was one of their principle electoral system advisers.*

Ohio-Restrictions on provisional ballots face court challenge.


"With his convention just days away, John Kerry is beginning an extreme makeover. John Kerry will use the Democratic convention to attempt to re-invent himself for the American public. When he’s in the Midwest he claims to be the candidate who stands for conservative values, but when he is back in Boston he boasts that he is proud to be a liberal. It will be interesting to see which John Kerry shows up next week - will it be the Senator who has consistently voted to the left of Teddy Kennedy or this new everyday man who is for-and-against any given issue depending on who he’s speaking to? Transforming a Boston liberal into someone with conservative vales will make for fascinating television, but Ohio voters will not be fooled.” -OHIO SECRETARY OF STATE BLACKWELL

Secretary of State Blackwell Issues Statement Previewing Democratic Convention.

FLASHBACK: October 29th, 2004 Ohio Senator Teresa Fedor., one of the lawmakers leading the calls for Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell to resign.
Several Ohio Democratic Senators are calling for the immediate resignation of Blackwell, stating in a letter addressed to him that he has been "unresponsive to the needs of Ohio's voters" and has "failed to uphold [his] duties as chief elections officer."

FLASHBACK: “Ken Blackwell is becoming the Katherine Harris of 2004,” said Ohio Senator Teresa Fedor, who has been on Blackwell’s case all year over the issue of electronic voting.

divided we fall... 

Kerry Won. . .by Greg Palast - Bush won Ohio by 136,483 votes. Typically in the United States, about 3 percent of votes cast are voided—known as “spoilage” in election jargon—because the ballots cast are inconclusive. Palast’s investigation suggests that if Ohio’s discarded ballots were counted, Kerry would have won the state. Today, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports there are a total of 247,672 votes not counted in Ohio, if you add the 92,672 discarded votes plus the 155,000 provisional ballots

A Matter of Survival.

By George Sprague
Concord Monitor | Letter
Thursday 28 October 2004

When I was home in New Hampshire on leave last month, a lot of people approached me to tell what a good job we're doing here in Iraq.

I appreciate the support, but I don't need the media or those people to tell me what I see every day. We are not getting the job done.

People ask me, "How's it going over there?" Cities have been overrun and are in a state of lawlessness. My job brings me into the streets. I see these things as they happen. They aren't just headlines for me. All we are doing here is treading water, and at this rate we can't keep afloat much longer. I'm just a simple man, but I can see that everything this administration has done with Iraq has been dead wrong.

We appreciate your support, but we can't see those yellow ribbons from here. I ask that you let your vote show your support. I don't know what you go to bed thinking, but I go to bed wondering not how many more years of this administration I can handle but how many more days I might survive.
