Moveon - yes it would be nice if they really were interested in bringing
election integrity to the forefront of the nation, perhaps by "putting their back into it" for a

The message sent out by Moveon showed an absolute cluelessness-
they say their goal is to "help state election officials" lobby for verified
voting. (who, Cathy Cox or Linda Lamone?)

Moveon has over 3 million members, and if half give $10 each, then you can see,
this is a money making venture for them. $150 K to "house parties" and "video
viewings" and the remaining $1.35 Million to whatever they want to spend it on..

Sending money to moveon is about like contributing to a John Kerry for President
in 08 campaign, and hoping that "this time, he really will honor his promise" to get all of the votes

Like Bush says - "fool me-ee-e once, uh-uh shame on meee, fool me tt-t-twice,
uh-uh-uh-ya ya can't fool me twice - heh hee hehh hehhh!

NC Verified Voting does not take in money, and pretty much we are just
monitoring the implementation of getting new voting systems out to our counties. We have a majority of
counties choosing optical scan and Automark, and lesser number with the toilet paper ballot. We hope to wean
them away from the TPB after they deal with the difficulties that arise. Diebold did flee our state,
and that has to embarass their touchscreen manufacturing facility in Lexington, NC. One down, more to go.

Who is worthy of your donations? www.VoteTrustUSA.org , www.VerifiedVoting.org ,
and www.BradBlog.org , all who have assisted individual states tremendously.
None of these are well funded, and each are tireless and selfless in the practical help they provide.
You will see the results of your donations.
Further, any Florida election reform group can use help. : O Cause they are Florida.

Now is the time to build your foundation, your plan, your argument, your
BEFORE the "trainwreck". Most people have read John Gideon's article about the
upcoming "Trainwreck", if not
go to www.votetrustusa.org or www.bradblog.com

Will you be ready in time for the "Trainwreck"?

You will soon have a grand opportunity to be listened to, if you have built a
creditable message that is well packaged and documented.

When the big "Trainwreck" comes, this is what I would call your "CARTERET
MOMENT". (Like a Kodak Moment)

A "Carteret" is my phrase for a turning point moment - for North Carolina, our
turning point was when 1 machine in Carteret County North Carolina lost over 4,400 votes, which
could not be retrieved in any way, or recounted, since this was on paperless machines.

Now is the time to get your message, studies and documentation ready.
