We need to keep writing in favor of elections the people can see and verify and understand with their own eyes. Would you accept a guy who takes all your votes, goes in a back room, comes out later and announces who won? Would you just trust him? Then resist these computers in New York.
I got a strong outpouring in response to the last email regarding the shoddy, vulnerable-to-hacking machines our governments would like us to vote on. People are finally getting outraged as well they should be. Many of you have said you've written to the powers that be and others have asked who to write to. So I have created this list for you to use, below. You can also go www.re-media.org
and hit press blog where you can go directly to certain papers letters to the editor. The Re-media website is otherwise down until we find someone willing to run it--so if anyone wants to help run the site that would be so fant
astic and then we can keep posting new information for you.
It's important to keep this discussion going in the public domain. One NY county is already considering hand counting its election (see below). This is the first time the MSM is paying attention to the people's concerns. Your federal and state governments are not. We must reach as many of We the People as we can. Whenever you write please post to any or all of the blogs/ newspaper forums listed below or others. If you click on some of the articles below you can add posts there.
Tell you legislators
you will vote them out of office unless they protect your constitutional right to vote, which includes your right to know that your vote was counted. You cannot know what goes on inside a computer. The Attorney General
represents NY in the DOJ litigation. Let him hear from the NY he should be representing. The Governor
has refused to take a position since he was a gubernatorial candidate. Hold him to his commitment to paper ballots and tell him we want them hand counted. Write to the State Board of Elections
and tell them to stop considering what's best for the vendors and start thinking about what's right for the people. Now is the time to write and write some more:
If not, New Yorkers will lose their once constitutionally protected right to vote and when we go to the polls there will be computers programmed by at best irresponsible voting vendors standing between us and our right to choose our representatives. If you vote on a computer, your vote might count, but then again it might not. One thing's for sure- you'll never know. That's disenfranchisement.
At the end of this email are some responses I've gotten, which I've included for inspiration and to help you formulate your own letters to the editor, the Attorney General, the Governor, your legislators, the Board of Elections. Keep pushing and keep posting. Let this murmur we finally got for us turn into a roar. For more information click on these links:
