I stayed up too late last night watching the election results and went to bed somewhat hopeful. Kerry pulled out Pennsylvania and I thought it might happen for us. Turns out all the people who registered to vote to take back the country decided they didn't need to go out and vote.

I feel just as robbed as I did four years ago. I don't understand at all how someone can support Bush, and those who support him don't understand how I could be against him. That being said, I will allow myself one more moment of anger, and then I will do my best to move on.

The president of Diebold,the touch-screen voting machines company that was used in Ohio, wrote the following in a fundraising letter in August of last year: That he was "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year." If you want to read more about it, do a Google search for Diebold deliver Ohio, you'll get thousands of hits. I'm trying to find the article again, but others mentioned thousands of prerecorded votes on some of the machines when they were initially turned on. So as another election is stolen by Bush Co., I have finally figured out what I need to do.

I pledge the following:

In the next four years I will get five friends to help me in my endeavors to recapture my civil rights. I, with these five friends, will actively campaign to get candidates of our choosing voted in or re-elected to Congress. I will donate my time to the Democratic party, and come 2008 to the primary candiate of my choice to run for President. After the primaries, I will dedidate that time to the Democratic party candidate chosen by the voters, whether or not they are the candidate I have chosen to back in the primaries. I will not allow this country to be shanghaied again by the corporate intrests of Haliburton, Bush Co, and the civil-liberties hating Republican Party due to my lack of activism and my laziness.

Now the question is, who will join me?
