The Borg would have us believe "Resistance is futile." Yet we must reply, "Persistence is essential."
With the self-styled mainstream press ignoring election fraud, it is up to us to bring our fellow citizens into awareness so that there may be an awakening and an answer to the call for action. And, whenever doubt enters your mind, look at that national treasure called the Declaration of Independence. Remember, when the Continental Congress issued our country's birth certificate, the smart money was not on the United States of America.
Each of us can make a difference. We must make a difference. And, in recent days, some degree of progress has been made.
On December 8, Representative John Conyers had a briefing on the Ohio situation for the Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee. Earlier, he had laid out the cause for concern in two letters to J. Kenneth Blackwell, the Ohio Secretary of State. But Blackwell did not appear at the briefing.

On December 10, Secretary Blackwell ordered Carole Garman, the Director of the Greene County Board of Elections, to literally take back election records from the staff of the two minor party candidates who asked for the recount--and are paying for it. The claim was made that "...they are not considered public records." Such action is a violation of Sections 3503.26 and 3599.161 of Ohio election law. Section 3599.42 addresses the significance of such conduct: "A violation of any provision of Title XXXV of the Revised Code constitutes a prima facie case of election fraud within the purview of such Title."

On December 13, Representative John Conyers will hold a 2004 election forum in Columbus, Ohio. He will be joined by Representatives Maxine Waters, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and Ted Strickland. No one is expecting Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell.
December 13 is a key date. The Electoral College meets. The Ohio recount begins, as does the countdown to January 6, which is the day Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes.
Between now and then, we must do two things: First, request that Representative Conyers send a detailed letter of inquiry to Florida Secretary of State Glenda Hood.* Second, contact your Representative and your two Senators and urge them to object to the Ohio and Florida Electors.

Please consider this carefully and pass it along. Persistence is essential.
